After 14 years (!) Janine and I finally decided to get married. We had a wonderful day!

More pictures, taken by my sister. There’s more to come, can’t wait to see them, including the official photo shoot.

I think I agree.

Themes are human too, you know

Someone linked to this on planet GNOME. I thought it was pretty funny: thoughts about Apple’s new theme for iTunes .

So, Olivier, if you’re reading this, don’t be so quick to ditch the Xfce engine in favour of Clearlooks. You might hurt its feelings ;-)

I knew the ‘z’ probably would give them some trouble, but come on, zoology??

Journeying Artificial Zoology and Masterful Assassination Neohuman

So, maybe it only works with your real name:

Journeying Artificial Sabotage and Potential Exploration Replicant

oh dear, sabotage…

/me goes to have a good look at his bugzilla entries ;-)

KDE articles

Usually I follow developments in GNOME more closely than those in KDE, mainly because Xfce is more closely related to them using the same toolkit and all.

But I just saw two blog entries about KDE4 that were quite interesting to read for anyone interested in desktop development. The level of integration they are talking about is not something that Xfce offers, or probably should even want to offer, but they make some good points about general desktop and application design.

Oh, the articles I am talking about are by Mathias Ettrich and Ben Meyer.

This is actually a lunar post, but this blog needs more news ;-)

I think my firefox is buggier than Auke’s:

# lvu compile firefox | grep -i warning | wc -l
# lvu compile thunderbird | grep -i warning | wc -l

Intelligent Design

As seen on Planet GNOME, maybe this could be interesting for Maria van der Hoeven, our minister of education: Intelligent Design.

Fairly entertaining. Don’t read it if you are easily offended about your religion and that religion happens to be Christian.

Is it really that bad?

I am nerdier than 72% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Must be because they put in those chemistry questions…

Moving to subversion

  • April 7, 2005
  • Jasper Huijsmans

So, for those who don’t follow xfce4-dev, we are in the process of moving to subversion. After an initial hiccup of broken png images all things seem to go well. Thanks Auke!

The anonymous access will most likely be done through http, but I don’t know exactly how yet. We’ll post updated instructions to the website soon.

Xfmedia is now also in the same repository and hopefully mousepad and perhaps thunar will follow. Our current idea is to eventually put all Xfce related code in this repository; that means moving oer the goodies from berlios. We’ll see about that later, I think.

Here’s a reponse to all the noise, to try and get back to normal conversation: OSNews editorial. Great style, Eugenia.

Human communication is flawed and it takes courage to publicly accept part of the blame. Hopefully this unfortunate episode will lead to something good in the end ;-)
