It’s one month already I relocated to California. It wasn’t a shock since I’ve been here many times in 2006. But this time was for good so I had to face many new things I had no idea, things like getting a Social Security Number, opening a bank account, writing checks in english (for the rent). I also don’t have a car yet so I had to figure out how to reach some places by public transportation.
I have also been to Ikea for the first time. The closer one is located in East Palo Alto which is supposed to NOT be a good neighborhood so it was nice when I jumped off too early from the bus and the Bus driver stopped by to tell me to jump in that it was the wrong stop. I met very cordial people until now. So, the Ikea stop is important in this story because there I bought a desk (as you can see, nothing fancy) and confortable chair to be able to work at home on Oxygen. It was not easy to build the desk without screwdriver and I messed things up just at step 3 :) but in the end it worked!
Since I left my lovely 23″ Cinema Display in Italy I’m really thinkinh in getting an 24″ or something iMac. In October I really haven’t any time or energy to work on anything KDE related. Fortunately Nuno and David Miller have been doing a great work filling missing actions icons and improving the ugly ones. There’s still some work to do but I’ll concentrate on designing the applications now. Next coming are for sure Kmail and Kontact. There also some minor changes I’d like to do here and there on the folders, Konqueror icon, Dolphin and to the “new” action badge.So stay tuned.*PS:* Yes, I read all the crap about the amazingly stupid Linux.com article. Will write something about that soon, but I had this post ready since a couple of days.
