started in on the engines/data-source/display classes for plasma and X decided to disappoint by mucking up mouse interaction. so i went to exit and instead rebooted the machine (wasn't really paying attention at the time). when the laptop came back up the external monitor would no longer display though the laptop detected it when plugged in. the monitor itself still works as when i plug it into one of the desktop systems it springs to life. just the laptop. this is very disconcerting. and demotivating (didn't really get a whole hell of a lot accomplished thus far today); staring at the laptop's LCD is ok, but i much prefer the larger, crisper CRT. *sigh* not sure if this means i'm on the way to having to get a new laptop.
congrats to the koffice team on getting 1.5 out. the tour page is rather nice too (a few more shots of kword and kspread would've been nice too =)
