1. the people over at coverity who have been offering free-as-in-beer defect reporting of open source apps has got kde merged into their build system. it's not listed on the page yet, but will be there in the coming days. this is great news =)
i've seen a prelim report, but the official results aren't there yet. please don't inundate them with requests for access to the reports at this time, though please feel free to send them a "thanks!" email to let them know how much we appreciate their efforts. if you do need/want an account to see the reports, please coordinate this through ade and dirk once they have access (which will probably be a few days i imagine).
2. i complete agree sebr about articles that are more half-assed opinion pieces than professional overviews. i can read slashdot for the former, don't we have a big enough community to get more of the latter published?
besides, half-assed opinion pieces are my domain. ;) and on that note...
3. ebn. yep, i said some "mean" things alright ade. but i know you can take it. ;) it is cool to see ebn improving, though, so lazy people like me have a better time mining through the fruits of your labour ... hope you enjoy your thesis writing sequester ...
4. in the "grey is the new black" theme ... the 770 is the new zaurus.
