the meeting on sunday with the superkaramba team went quite well. the developers will continue working on a new release to coincide with KDE 3.5 and will be moving superkaramba development into KDE's svn repository. for KDE 4, as we rework kicker and kdesktop, support for karamba themes will be integral and become an extension to applets as we know them today, really.
also, i must have missed this, but according to K3B's website they were given a number of drives by LaCie who will be shipping K3B on their support CD's that come with new hardware. wow! that's awesome. way to go guys!
reading about a really cool project involving autonomous, swarming flying robots that run linux (it sounds so sci-fi, doesn't it?) i saw this picture:
hey! that computer is running KDE! =)
a movie was being filmed on my block this week. they were here shooting "on location" for 3 days. lots of very large trucks with lots of equipment, cable snaking along the sidewalks, street parking shut down for a three block radius ... crazy. it's apparently written by the same guy who wrote Stealing Harvard, but since it's a Canadian production, you probably won't see it. =)
