Help make Plasma 5 real!

Originalmente publicado en Albert Vaca's blog:

Maybe you already know that the new version of the desktop by the KDE people, called Plasma 5, is in the makings. I totally believe that this forthcoming release will be amazing,  and that’s why Aleix Pol and myself have already started porting KDE Connect to this new Desktop Environment.

Porting every application in KDE, though, requires a huge amount of work. This is one of the reasons why some of the best hackers in KDE will meet this summer in Randa, Switzerland: to work hard in the next version of the best desktop environment ever!

If you, like me, also believe that Plasma 5 will be awesome and want to help its development, I encourage you to donate in the crowd-funding campaign they started to cover the expenses of the meeting. You can do it from the following link:

Thanks from all the KDE Community!

Regardless of the existence of over 2 billion English words, an average person is required to at least know a minimum of 50,000 words. Having a clear understanding of all available English words could be tough since new words keep coming…

ten. watch 10 films on imdb’s top 250 list

Originalmente publicado en Enjoy Not Knowing:

To specify, I wanted to watch 10 films I had not yet seen, from this fun list on IMDB’s webpage.

Sidebar: Does anyone use the word webpage anymore?


I got really close on this one. As of my latest update I had watched 6/10 of the movies on my list. Since then Evelina and I watched Schindler’s List, so that’s another step forward.


I was a little embarrassed to admit that I hadn’t seen this one. We had seen clips in history class, but I don’t believe that counts…If you haven’t seen it, Schindler’s list is a horribly wonderful movie. Comes highly recommended.

It does, unfortunately, leave this item incomplete. Evelina seems less than thrilled with the three remaining films, so if this item is to be completed looks like I’ll be going it alone.

Have you seen any of the remaining films? Which should I see first?
