today is libs monday. things break. mayhem ensues, such as the alarm not going off and peyton waking me up with 20 minutes to get him to school. so i figured a little rage against the machine would be the perfect mood music today. thus far, it has been. just another bomb track.
the global icon loader moved once again. this time from kapplication to a singleton within kiconloader itself. so now one calls KIconLoader::global() whenever they want that and there are no deps on kapplication. you still need a global KInstance around, of course, just like in kde3. KIconLoader also has become a QObject in the process to handle updating itself when the icon settings change. this should also make handling the lifetime of the icon loader nicer as you can just pass it a parent object.
lots of other activity going on in libs today as well which is nice to see. busy days these mondays.
i tried moving my blog from the old blogger to the new, but blogger isn't letting blogs with lots of content move over just yet. apparently my blog is over that limit. sorry, clee. =/
last night p. pulled out the go game i got for xmas and asked to play a game. i've been teaching him how to play this month. the rules are simple but it's a fairly challenging game of being able to look ahead and see patterns. he can make it through 2/3rds of a complete game or so before losing interest, which is pretty good given the length of the game whose 'action' consists entirely of placing black and white stones on a board. we don't play overly competitive (and i'm not that great of a player in general anyways due to not enough practice); i generally set up little puzzles for him to identify and solve as we play.
as you can see from the follow pic there was also a bit of a star wars theme to it all (those light sabers are freaking cool, btw)
