Yop, it's true! there's a new bank holiday w/end coming! :). i'll be off to Donegal (for a change).
Other than that, I've figured out how to write a systray applet in KDE without a hidden KMainWin. Thanks to Hamish Rodda, the guy who wrote the RandR applet for KDE. Very nice, clean and easy to understand code :)
I'm wondering if i should start writing a systray client for gnome's netapplet daemon, or wait till SuSE 9.2 is out, just in case anyone already did :) Anyway, I want to do a D-BUS version of the thing (maybe get some Qt3 DBus bindings subset going to make everything nice and proper?).
