a friend went in for an interview at a software devel company hq'd here in calgary. she was put through a pretty rigorous 3 hour test which involved solving a variety of issues on both windows and linux. the test itself was done on a linux machine (windows access was done through terminal services or vmware, i forget which) and that machine was running what they run internally for their linux desktops (which apparently are fairly numerous): kde.
seems everywhere i go, even when it's just to my own living room to entertain a friend, i keep bumping into deployments of kde happily doing its job in the SME market. seems there's a quiet revolution going on in that space for the open source desktop.
in less interesting news, it snowed again today. for like the third day straight. and when i say "straight" i mean it essentially hasn't really stopped snowing during that period for any appreciable amount of time. and today, between getting up at an ungodly hour to see t. off to work and the changing weather, i felt kind of "out of it".
so i just puterred on some kicker and kmail bugs, did some email communication ... no heavy lifting, really. made a nice pasta dish with braised tofu for lunch, though =)
it's been a nice week, though. my first in several months where i'm not either travelling, dealing with dying pets or looking after the p-man. i have to say getting a little "me time" is rather nice.
