Lmao. I'm not sure I'd put it in the same category as xorg.conf, that's a lot to live up to!

Your website dun 502'd and 503'd itself though tonight.. as well as being slow =o

Mentioning web stuff, I found Brackets a little while back and have fallen in absolute love with it. Some pretty neat extensions for it, and incredibly easy to make new extensions for.

Yeah, I'm building a basic image gallery into the CMS so I can dump some baby pictures onto my blog for the in-laws. The address I gave you is an alpha site so things will bounce up and down constantly, but I'm hoping to port the code across to the main site in the next few days (if i get time).

The speed issues are because I was experimenting with different image resizing algorithms for generating the thumbnails and embedded images (the idea being I can just dump pictures into the folder and if thumbnails haven't been created, the CMS will autogenerate them when a user hits the page. Sadly the resizing code seems VERY slow frown.gif but thankfully I only need to build each gallery once and after that the thumbs would only be for adhoc images, which would be vastly quicker)

Ideally, I'd fork the resizing off and allow the page to continue to load for the user, but I can't be bothered to write anything that sophisticated just yet. (though the image resizing is supposed to be running in parallel for the images rather than sequentially, but I see no evidence of that happening in practice, so there's definitely some tweaking I could do there anyway)

Anyway, I've rambled on long enough. laugher.gif

Another reason to like Linux/OS X

So I want the ebay rig and the EDC to be exactly the same so I clone the EDC's HD reinstall the boot loader and put it in the ebay rig and boot it up no fuss no muss.

Regarding KDE widgets: There are a growing number of useful ones. I'm in the process of seeing how much of Conky I can replace with STDIN/STDOUT widget. It should be everything but I think it may be harder on some things to customize it's look which is where Conky really shines.

Here is a screenie of an interim stage KDE w/ STDIN Widget

I've been using KDE4 since its release and the widgets seem as bad now as they've always been. Personally I've seen no improvement what do ever.

truth in both statements. The reality is a useful widget gets made and then it never gets updated after 6 months, by the time you come to swap your hardware the widget doesn't recognize it or KDE has moved into a different qt/python release and half of them don't work.

so yea, the widgets are momentarily useful. Same goes for all DE's in my experience, you build what you can around the hardware at the time and sometimes you lose features as you go forward, sometimes you gain.

That's a big issue as well (and I've also had seemingly 'stable' widgets -ones I'd be running for years without issues- break on me after some updates and never to be fixed as well). And with the back catalogue of broken widgets, we're now in a situation where more don't work than do (so in many regards, things were better back in the KDE4.0->4.4 days when most things did run). Sadly that that's not the only issue either: KDE's installer for widgets barely works since it just parses kde-look.org (or whatever site) so constantly picks up all of the aforementioned broken widgets.

To be quite honest, the KDE devs did a pretty poor job on KDE widgets. It's gotten to the point where so many don't work, and those that do have no guarantee they still will after the next update, that I've just given up on it entirely.

Hmmmm perhaps it is because I'm not using a rolling release and am still on KDE 4.8.5 that mine seem fine.
