I merged a ton of stuff out of playground today into extragear and kdebase for plasma, not to mention fixed a number of other bugs. I also merged a few patches from completely new people on the scene, too, which is always very cool =) Hopefully much of this made it into beta3.
Here's a secret: I leave bugs in my code just to give new people something to patch. I'm kidding ... or am I? ;P
Short story of it is that I owe everyone a screencast, especially to show the concept of containments. Tomorrow I'm going to work on wrapping KickOff and getting that finally done. Robert Knight has done a great job of essentially rewriting it from KDE3, and the OpenSUSE people did a great job of initially creating the thing. Raptor will come, just not with 4.0.
Tonight's work has all been swept away, however, by attending a book reading with William Gibson for his new book Spook Country. He's an amazingly boring reader with the most monotone voice imaginable, but his actual thoughts and ideas are amazingly sharp and inspirational. A real character.
He signed my book and I managed to get him an invite to a show for an artist he's interested in on behalf of an aquaintance who lives in D.C. William Gibson seemed interested, so the art show guy should be happy when I email him tomorrow =)
For now, people have come over to discuss the night's event before we all turn in.
Hugs 'n love.
