I have been working! I swear! Really!

I have been attacking KDE! I have been working on a lot of design also. Thinking about how things should work (and shouldn't). I really like the way that kde is for the most part, but it seems like communication (for one things) is very compartmentalized. I would like to see an intergrated method of communicationing, be that email, im, irc, chat, voice mail, or voice chat. I don't know how I would like to have this integrated and have been scratching possible ideas out on paper. Once I have something more I might put it here...

I really like the idea of being able to say "any communication for person X is important" and what not. I really like the way that the email icon on the dock in Mac OS X showed the # of new messages, but it only included new messages in the inbox, but if you used rules to move them around to folders, it wasn't included in the total. I also like the idea (from what I have heard of it) of having more communications tools built-in, which XP may be doing (haven't seen it for myself).

Also thinking about MPI and Lisp and blah!

Next week is the programming contest, yah!
