I've recently joined the Packagers department which means this is my third (different!) job in SuSE :-)

Meanwhile I became KOffice ( release coordinator; unfortunately it is currently the only thing in KDE I have time for due to assignments and amount of work in SuSE :-/

News from the localization: we've completed several new features including automatic corrections and texts, translated help with fulltext searching and also a brand new Sparc/Solaris port. We have the most complete localized version of OOo available to date.

KOffice: been hacking on some new date/time functions for KSpread over the weekend

Phewww, long time I haven't written anything here :)

We ( have successfully finished the Czech localization of OpenOffice, together with lots of extra goodies (spellchecker, hyphenation, correct typographical quotes etc.) Boy, OOo is such a _mass_ of code.
Neverthless, I'm coming back to code on KDE and maintain i18n in there, this time fulltime! Yay ;) As a sidenote: I also move back from Prague to Olomouc, home sweet home. ;)

Finally an update after a longer time :)

I've been recently hacking KSpread, filling it up with some missing statistics functions. Well, to be honest, there were none to the date. I ended up with 19 brand new functions, ready in KOffice CVS for you to try out.

(I should probably mention that some of the necessary routines were taken from the OpenOffice spreadsheet app; long-live open source :-)

I've put some new photos on my home page, mostly from our holiday trips all over Europe. Enjoy :)

P.S. Sorry, the texts are in Czech only for now, stay tuned for English verion. ;)

Just got back from a 3-day holiday in Berlin. We've had a wonderful time there, visited mostly history places. Thanks goes to gis for providing us perfect accomodation in his parents' house and to be a wonderful guide around Berlin.
I'll post some photos once I manage to scan them, but it shouldn't take a long time.

Pfeeww, what a busy weekend. Been translating for almost 12 hours non-stop, just to bring the Czech translations back into shape. Hmmm, I was coding too much lately, and almost forgot to work on other things :)

Today, I with my girlfriend went shopping to IKEA, to buy new beds. Nothing that we liked, so we bought nothing. Pretty useless trip, given the fact it took more than one hour just to get there.
But I enjoyed it, on the way back we visited my girlfriend's relatives who were pretty funny. :-)

Just got back from the holiday -- it was really great. Met my old friends, went to pubs -- relaxing :)
Now back to coding :)

Ahh, what a relief :-) The boxes for SuSE Linux 7.2 CZ should arrive (finally!) today. Just visited the factory; I have to say it looks pretty nice.

Tomorrow, I'm heading for Olomouc (the city where I was born) to enjoy my well deserved one week holiday.

No hacking, no Linux, no computers, no KDE the next week.

OK, here's my first entry for the diary. :)

Been hacking KPresenter for almost the whole day, trying to fix the bugs Werner posted. Let's see... it's tough.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
