today was just full of excitement.
the bank across the street got robbed, but the idiot let the tellers bag the money. as he was trotting across the parking lot the die bomb went off scattering bills and ink everywhere. the police were along shortly to collect the mess and sort things out. but hey, nothing like a bank robbery in the neighbourhood to liven up the morning, right?
i walked pass the mess on the way to lunch with a friend at soba ten. mmm.. edamame, tempura, soba noodles oh my! found out she's vegetarian as well, something i didn't know about her. then again, i don't think we'd ever actually shared a meal before. in any case, during opening conversation i mentioned what i'd done this morning ...
which brings us to exciting thing #2: the oxygen icons are now in kdelibs and licensed under a creative commons v3 attribution, share-like license. libs and base are ported to the new icon names, and will be committed in the coming days along with a switch to oxygen as the default. at which point we need to port the rest of the modules (lucag has some scripts whipped up, huzzah!), document the process in the kde3->kde4 porting guide and start q/a'ing the new icons.
so after explaining the icons moving and the artwork project in kde4 she says, "hm. yeah, when people ask me about my work," (she's an environmental engineer), "i realize that they don't even know what questions to ask. sometimes the details of one's work can be pretty esoteric." which is to say, translated out of canadian-polite-ese, "you did what with your morning?"
on the way back home i bought some new altec lansing speakers for the computer as the old ones, which i got for free due to a mess up with a computer order some 8 years ago, were busy dieing a slow and agonizing death over the last 6 months or so. the p-man is busy setting them up as i type.
i also noticed i have only two weeks left to write three presentations i'm giving. thankfully i'm giving one of them twice, but still. ugh.
