Life
Back from 1.5 weeks of holidays down at the lake. A good mixture between biking, meeting old friends, cinema, relaxing and a bit of hacking ;-) . I hope my mind is now free/ready for the upcoming exams...
KDE
Yippee, qt3 porting started ;-) . But oh boy, there are lots of bugs...
Life
Yay, exam is over. Didn't go that well, but I'm optimistic that I pass. Now I wouldn't say now to a little break. Some doing-nothing holiday down at the lake. Decided to postpone it for a week or two though and instead go do some caldera work.
Hacking
Right in the middle of learning I hacked a new launching mechanism for the ioslaves in konq/e, together with Dirk. Fixes temporary memory consumption problems. A bit of a quick thing but I'm happy it's in and it seems to work quite good.
Studies
Learning, learning, studying, studying, ... Exam is on Tuesday...
Using Advogato For Message Exchange
kandalf: I guess it's because the telecom disconnects after 15 minutes of inactivity. so make some continuous traffic ;-) . Like...a single ping -c 1 from a cronjob or something ;-) .

People
Welcome aboard kandalf :) . You might want to read the iptables manpage to figure out how to close 6000 for the outside world :)
Studies
Grr, exams coming up...
Hacking
Yay, official konq/e ipkg is out :) . Hacked a build script to automatize snapshot and ipkg creation. Hacked up a patch for khc to support history, with one week delay, after I promised to coolo :)
Hacking
It's been a really busy weekend. Been hacking a lot on konq/e. It's got a nifty bookmark editor now and quite some other fixes.

And whee, finished the article. My first ever :)

KDE
KDE valley is filling up :) . Werner arrived in Erlangen and Lars was here for a few days. It's just too nice to see KDE'ers in real life. Looking forward to LinuxTag.
Uni
Uhm euhm uni? oh, yes, I almost forgot. After LinuxTag...
Hacking
Yippee, got 'make ipkg' working in konq/e . So building an iPKG from konq/e is a piece of cake now :-)
Music
Smallish concert with the uni big band with grill party afterwards. Ahh, that was great fun!
Studies
Oops, have to hurry up now, to avoid being too late to the lectures.
Hacking
Did some konqueror and ksirc bugfixing (looking forward to 2.2) . However I should learn to organize my bio-rhythm better....to avoid seeing myself hacking till 2 in the night and the next morning wondering why I don't get anything in the lectures at university :)
KDE
Welcome aboard Lukas . You might want to add yourself to the project :)

Wow, traffic on konq-e is increasing and some patches are coming in, nice :) . Ohh, qt 2.3.1 is out and oh joy, there's now a qt ipkg suitable for both, qpe and konq/e :D . Wonderful. Still, as Devin noticed, the package (konq) is getting bigger and bigger :(

Looks like the mosfet trouble is over and KDE is back developing at light speed. Awesome.

Life
I'm looking forward to the holidays. Studies, KDE and Caldera work is extremly time consuming lately. Want to see the lake again, and make a bike tour there :)
Friends
Congrats Gilligan for finishing the abi!
KDE
It's been a really weird day. It starts with seeing that mosfet removed all his code from the KDE CVS Repository. wtf? Reading up the mailinglists it seems there was a hot discussion about code releases and testing and the like. Aha. The discussion still goes on (kde-devel) . Oh well. Spent almost the rest of the whole day (crazy!) in discussing a tiny design issue on #kde with frerich that lenny brought up ('do you have 5 mins for a tiny design question') . Exhausting, but a great fun. What a day...

Hacking
Not a very productive week(end) . I was hoping to find more motivation (and time) for hacking. At least I fixed some ksirc stuff, which was fun :) .

Cleaned up the mess of different .emacs and .zshrc files on all my accounts. Now it's all synchronized from one central account, using a nifty script :)

Life
Still not fully back up yet. It's changing back and forth. Can't do much right now, so I sit and wait :)
Offtopic
Is it just me or is the layout of the advogato front page busted currently? the page is far too wide and the column at the right (showing the recent diaries and recent accounts) is way to narrow. Doesn't look like a browser bug to me though, as it's broken in konq, moz and ns. Just me?

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!
