Now there's a shiny, new Google Translator Plasmoid version 0.6.
Well maybe that's a bit exaggerated because the User Interface hasn't changed a bit, but there's a lot of new stuff going on under the hood that will also soon benefit the Currency Converter Plasmoid.
Changes can be found in the Changelog.

Ever since I finally installed Kubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx I have had kernel crashes at least once a day, sometimes up to ten times a day. It's very frustrating and effectively breaks your workflow to put it mildly. I could easily come up with other, more harsh ways to describe the situation 😉
I have tried a variety of different kernels:
Some I can (sometimes) boot and let me work for 0-20 hours, others never reaches the login screen or goes into an infinite reboot loop.
If anyone experience the same or similar the relevant bug report is at https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/585734 and it doesn't look promising. So now I have come to the conclusion that I need to install a pre-Lucid kernel and see if I can get it running. It will probably degrade X performance (if it even runs) and crash other applications but I'd rather live with that than having to reboot all the time.
Is it at all a viable solution to install a pre-Lucid kernel and if so how should it be done. What about graphic drivers (aren't they somehow partly kernel modules now?).
Finally I got to update my Google Translator Plasmoid to version 0.4.2.
Changes since I last updated this blog includes:
For the last 2-3 weeks I have been working on a couple of scripted Plasmoids for KDE4.x written in Python. First I started with the Currency Converter which uses data from Yahoo! Finance. When it was sorta working I figured out that I could create a Google Translator Plasmoid using almost the same code, so now I'm maintaining them concurrently. Well - 'nuff said. Here ther are:
An agreement is always good. It's nice to agree about something. But what I hate is double negations and what I hate even more is triple negations.
Well, yes I got this blog so I thought I ought to write something. Last week I started working out at a local gym. Actually I was sent there by the municipal authorities because I'm unemployed, and in Denmark you have to be "activated" when you're unemployed, or you won't get any money. It's OK to go to the gym. I've never really liked these fitness centers with all the beefed up types, but this one is kinda relaxed. And it's good for me too. Haven't made anything physical for like 7 or 8 years and my computer is on the coffee table so I have no muscles and my shoulders and neck hurt like hell.
