News, Thoughts and Pretty Pictures September 15, 2009

Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.


Lots of great news have arrived in the burning ground lands ( brazil means that, yaknow? ). the first news: Spread KDE continues, we just give 2 talks, one in UFBA and one in UNIME, for more than 150 studants in one, and on the other I prefer not to talk about it.

Tokamak ended, I have nothing to say but Wow, the great new stuff incorporated in KDE by the summer of code is really nice. I have tested and approved ( except for some small glitches ) the new plasma widget center, done by our beauty annieC, and in a related note I still didn’t see the results for the kwin tabbing support, that’d be totally awesome to have, still waiting for that or for some tip on how to enable it.

One of a long standing bug has ben fixed in the woobly windows making me proud of use Composite again ( yes, I *LOVE* woobly windows ), and hotkeys for managing the window layout has been added. and seriously, I cant go back to 4.2 now, even it being 10% of the answer.

I just introduced the wonderful world of KDE programming to a friend of mine, Alexandre Raymond, and in 20 minutes he was able to hack 15-puzzle ( the plasma applet) and made it be N-puzzle,
yeah, that’s right, you now are able to braindamage yourself trying to solve a 99-puzzle just for fun( I still didn’t send the path to kde, waiting for him to send to me first )



Rocs reaches alpha1 state. this means that I will *NOT* add new features on the tags/version1 branch, but will do only bugfixes and add iicons that pinheiro is doing for me. ( btw, Thanks man ;D )

More rocs pictures, because I think my app is now actually pretty pretty. )






And, one last note, I started learning plasma, my first plasmoid is ready. ugly, but ready. how can we be till today without a tictactoe?


And the last thing is, I heard that nokia is hiring anyone that can solve the following puzzle for $1M/year:




1. uniq - September 15, 2009

If I remember correctly Simon Singh has a proof in his book about Fermat’s last theorem that this puzzle has no solution. He counts the number, which are not in the correct order (in this case 1, because 3 is before 2). If you move one piece you can only change this number by an even amount. So you will never reach zero.
Sorry pal, Nokia will hire nobody ­čÖé

2. NasaK - September 15, 2009

That puzzle is really easy… Down, right, up, left and horizontally mirror it. ­čśë

3. NasaK - September 15, 2009

Ooops, I made a mistake – only down, right, up and then mirror it. ­čśë

4. Lucas Murray - September 15, 2009

Solution is to move 3, then 2, then 1, then move to a right-to-left country.

Lucas Murray - September 15, 2009

I fail… 3, then 1, then 2. =(

5. Sujith H - September 16, 2009

I had discussed about rocs in my college where I went and did a session on How to get into KDE.

6. Diego. - September 16, 2009

My solution:
right click -> save image as… -> open with gimp / krita -> cut 3, cut 2 -> paste 2 at the place of 3, 3 at the place of 2 and the send it back.

Where’s my $1M? ­čÖé

7. dennis p - September 16, 2009

The sollution is to add a button numbered 6 in the lower right corner and then you don’t need to move anything.

8. CuriousPeter - September 17, 2009

“and on the other I prefer not to talk about it.”

please do, what happened? :)))

9. Aldo "xoen" Giambelluca - September 19, 2009
