the most bogus part about the upcoming trip is that i'll miss halloween with the p-man. we've gone out trick or treating together for the last 3 years, so it's kind of sad to break that tradition. we did go get some pumpkins and carve them up into scary talismans. they now sit on the front porch, candles lighting them up from the inside at night.
speaking of holidays, easter eggs are fun. (ok, that was a lame transition, but roll with me here ;) if you start up qt4 designer, go under the help menu and select "about qt designer" you get a standard little about box. but if you click and drag around the inside of the qt logo in the icon just right, it turns into a push button. click the button and you get a cute little nethack-like game where you have to collect the troll's business cards in a dark dungeon. or is that just what it looks like in oslo in the winter? ;)
what could be cooler than that? how about the fact that kde is now over the 4 million lines of code mark? huzzah!
