Dum di dum..

I got Evolution running. I first added a new user account to my machine, named "crashtestdummy" - a good way to test out weird software. The Joys of a Real Multi-User Operating System : )

I got that beast to run, so I have an idea what it looks like. My job now is to make the Beast into a Beauty.. Lots of work but that's what I love doing.

I am also pondering of replacing some of the older Gnome Stock icons, it's been quite a while since I did them, and I think certain ones, like the "Save"-floppy icon could use some retouch. There might also be a need for some new ones.

I also added a load of new news headlines to tigert.gimp.org and put together a combined news page of most of the important news sources and slashdot. Google is a good tool for searching the RSS files for various sites.. : )

I finally dumped my old perl spaghetti that I used for the headlines grabbing, and I am now using XML::RSS Perl module (which contains a nifty example headline grabber script that I modified to suit my needs). I feel much more robust now :^)

I hope you like the new stuff.
