Well, I've been writing a piece of code today and it took me 3 hours to realise that strcmp(txt, "message") was giving me a segfault.. because it doesn't accept implicit parameter. putting a: works... My excuse today is that i feel very bad (have a horrible cold) and i'm staying @ home. First sick…

Yesterday I've played badminton with my new club :) I'm yet to formally enroll, but the lads (and ladies) were quite nice and let me play. after a warm-up with one of the good guys there, i got to play doubles. for the first time. ..ever :). rather complicated, especially because I don't know how to…

I've finished the Romanian translation for kdevelop... now is a "wait and see" period to see if they're happy with them :) An interesting thing is, as I was doing the translation and attempting to use the Romanian diacritics, that not too many fonts in X actually have them :( even some unicode ones…

Trip and more stuff

November 9, 2004Category: Random
A while ago, I went to Donegal for the bank holiday weekend. Quite a nice and quiet place. Funny that I've almost passed by "the highest cliffs in Europe (?)" without noticing them.. maybe because they were partly covered in clouds and they're not vertical :)... anyway the trip was nice, the company…

Last night (or better: this morning) I decided that it should be possible to group a bunch of widgets (back-to-back) in a menu entry. ..Ahh, the stress :).. First, I tried "java style" (aka look on the net, maybe some other manic already did it). Either I was too tired, or it just didn't work. So…

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…
