We got a bunch of KDE t-shirts today, they're very nice (thanks promo team). The day was spent helping to setup the facilities at the university, and then finishing the presentation slides, and hacking some smaller bits. I even managed to update X11 and OpenOffice due to nasty PPC bugs, and it helped a lot. Although normally a sid system shouldn't be updated directly before presentations, that's second only to having to reboot without a journaling file system...

Updated the web interface so if a player wins or loses, it is instantly visible with a browser from anywhere in the world. Neato. Lots of work will have to go into supporting SQL tables, mostly for technical name -> real (i18n'ed) name lookups. Now if only all the games and clients would support the new features. Tomorrow, I plan to spend some minutes with chrisime to improve at least the GNOME 2.x client. This will set all KDE fellows at odds, but I've always wanted a rewrite of the old KDE applications, and don't have the time for it right now.
