the tab bar at the bottom need some love still. i also begin to envy Apple's position in being able to pick the screens for the machines people view their stuff on: the menu looks way nicer on my desktop's flatscreen than it does on my laptop. *sigh*
i've promised to get panel moving, resizing and background painting finished by the end of the week along with a way for users to add additional panels (plasma actually already supports multiple panels now, but there's no way for you to enjoy that feature right now ;). i've also promised to have a new summary and screen cast for the next commit digest. the week after that will be taskbar and systray love festing, and then it will be just bug fixing. there are some remaining issues with the new handles that need to be worked out, but that'll come.
i'm also well aware that the panel layout is completely screwed up right now, but that's because of bug fixes needed for applets and what not; the layouting code was so broken in so many ways, but after a weekend of bashing on it things are slightly better. now i need to write a PanelLayout to handle panel items properly as well as provide mouse over handles for the handels in the PanelContainment.
had a hair appt today. the stylist told me i need to get rid of the goatee. i protested lightly saying that i look like a child without it and he said, "well, looking 15 isn't a bad thing." ok, fair enough. since he usually knows what he's talking about in these tings, i'm going to try life sans facial hair for a while. we'll see how that goes.
got new strings for the guitar on the weekend as well. it sounds much better now. i also got a rather brightly pink capo, to the expressed disbelief of the (evidently fairly macho ;) guitar store workers. i asked for the capo and the guy behind the counter joked, "want the pink one?" and laughed. so i said, "sure, why not." he said, "really?" with disbelief rampant in his voice. he looked at the package and said, "it does say that proceeds from the pink ones go to cancer research.." indeed, it had the pink ribbon on the package, so i observed, "how can you say no to cancer?" the other worker at the counter turns at this point and says, "you're actually getting the pink one?" haaha... yes, i was. i am man enough for a pink capo. ;)
