(and the music inspired titles continue)
p. got a new bed from ikea last weekend, but i hadn't put it together yet as i wanted to couple it with a cleaning of his room. we spent an hour or two each evening over the last two days of the school week doing prep and moving some of the easier stuff around. today, after a bit of a sleep-in, we tackled his room head on. we got rid of tons of stuff that was either broken, neglected or which he had simply out grown (e.g. books that were uninteresting to him now, toys that he left behind or clothes he'd gotten too big for). we moved furniture around and started building the bed. we were foiled in the end by the battery in the drill going flat. i plugged it in and we went to see a movie.
he was asleep by the time we got home, so we'll finish the bed together tomorrow.
i also did laundry (3 loads; my god[dess], where does it all come from?) and answered emails, responded to im's and scanned over the odd patch whilst walking past the computer desk between tasks.
needless to say i'm pretty tired, but the house looks better and p. and i had a great time of it.
if you missed it, allen winters has been plugging away at api.kde.org to get it well functioning. as you see on the main page, there is a nice table now that lays out all the options a basic search box that finds a class by name for you. you need to know which module (kdelibs, kdebase, kdepimlibs, etc) it's in, but it does the rest for you. pretty nice. hopefully one day we'll have a full text search as well, but even this is a nice step up. there are, of course, also download links so you can have a local copy of the documentation.
if you are wondering how to write API documentation, there are also some nice tutorials on the topic as well over at techbase. they were originally on api.kde.org and i was going to settle in and move them over to techbase as i promised winters yesterday that i would, but it seems that our techbase heroes, danimo and dhaumann, beat me to the punch tonight. rock on!
instead, i'll do a little more api doc writing for libplasma. too knackered to do any real coding at the moment. =)
