today i had plans for some kde stuff, but it got put to the side to deal with other matters in life. that and the daylight savings time switch i forgot about ;) thankfully the computers didn't.
after getting the p-man up and going, we grabbed some falafel sandwiches and humous and picked up his mom and t. we then headed downtown to join the "canadians for kyoto" rally with signs we'd painted friday night in hand. the rally was held in cities across canada today to show support for kyoto. while it is certainly not the silver bullet solution, it is a useful first step and show of good faith between the nations of the world that we can and will start to rectify the environmental problems we have created for ourselves and everything else on this planet.
p. and the "save the earth" sign he made with remarkably little help from his mom and i was very popular with the cameras. i heard we even ended up on the evening news; by choice we don't have cable television in the house, but others who do phoned to say that the story on the rally ended with a shot of p. =)
after that, t. joined us at the mall for a quick shop. i realized last week that i was starting to run out of presentable clothes. i'll happily wear the same old things until they literally start coming apart at the seams. as it turns out, i've pretty much exhausted my supply of presentable pants and my runners are looking less than healthy. t. guided me towards some slightly more pretty clothes while we were there, including a nice, light natural-coloured linen suit that will do great when i give presentations in slightly more formal settings, not to mention restaurant outings, nicer clubs and the opera (carmen in april!). all in all, i'm a little less threadbare now though i do need to pick up a couple more pairs of casual pants and some shoes.
we then went back home and watched a few episodes of heroes (t. is several episodes behind) while munching on some healthy snacks and drinking tea. all in all a great day, if a little lite on the tech.
but i suppose i can get back to that tomorrow; i have a couple of commits for kdelibs though nothing overly breathtaking. that is the idea, i suppose, as we start to wind our ways towards feature freezes and what not. i do have one more biggish set of things to do for kconfig, and we still have classes in kdelibs that have outstanding issues. hm... next blog entry perhaps =)
