Is it that time of the year again?

The book meme is still alive, so once again:

  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
"When the QLabels are added to the status bar, they are automatically reparented to make them children of the status bar."

And the winner is "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" second edition by Jasmin Blanchette and Mark Summerfield. Thank <deity> this wasn't "ANSI C" by Kernighan and Ritchie which is lying beneath the Qt book, but sadly Stanisław Lem's "Tales of Pirx the Pilot" where to far away, although also on top of another stack of books

Looks like Mark D. is right - we all are depressingly geeky...

Nie słyszałeś jeszcze tej kapeli? Zapraszam więc na koncert!
Niestety poprzednim razem nie mogłem dojechać, lecz teraz musi mi się udać—najwyżej specjalnie wezmę sobie urlop ;) Jakby ktoś chciał jechać ze Śremu/Kórnika to na priv poproszę w samochodzie zawsze znajdzie się miejsce...p>

End of an era

In a few weeks I'll be shutting down my home server (please don't start the discussion about the definition of a server again!). This means that my current XMPP account will cease to exist and it will be reinstalled at a new server (probably Google Apps); so please forgive me if you get some auth requests.

Mr. Siegel - it's not an unknown distro! For example I use it on my notebook ;)

It's time to go home...

After 3 days of LGM I'm back home. I would like to thank Kamila and Louis for making such a wonderful experience possible, great job! It was really nice to meet also those people I've talked to on IRC for the last few years (I wonder how many of them are dissapointed now :P). Thanks to ``Cube I got the possibility to meet the people responsible for the Tango Project who were wonderful companions for me on the first day in Wrocław.

And now I need some sleep...

Show me your history...

...and I'll show you who you are. Or something like that ;)

[deejay1@betty ~]$ history | awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}'|sort -rn|head
177 cd
100 git
82 vim
68 svn
63 ./builder
59 su
50 mc
44 cvs
39 ls
29 rpmbuild

Yes, I do change directories pretty often and no, my laptop isn't named after a woman!

Support LGM!

So, it's that time of the year: LGM is near! If you're into open source and graphics this event is an absolute must. If you have some credits spare, you can support it by clicking Click here to lend your support to: Support the Libre Graphics Meeting and make a donation at !. Any amount will help us cover some of the accommodation and travel costs for developers, so we can bring as many of them as possible to Poland!

Now for some serious work...

C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 on my desk
At last! I've placed the preorder in January and it finally arrived on my desk. It wasn't so easy thanks to the all mighty Polish Post — I had to hunt it around the entire city. It should give me a jumpstart into Qt, because the online docs didn't really work out for me, sadly.

Let's hope it won't interfere with my master thesis ;)

Ain't never been cool...

OK, this time it won't be completely free, but hey - it's just £5 at 7digital for the entire album!

You should pay it to the artist you like anyway! And here it is, the video to "Lips are unhappy" by Lucky Soul:
