this has to be said once and for all: you are simply great :-) I am also
involved in a couple open source projects and (I think) I know how much
effort and dedication is required for such a thing, especially if you are
responsible for the 'final polish' the users will see, and sometimes get
all the blame no matter what goes wrong (we've seen this here - no matter
if it's KDE bugs, not yet synchronized Debian FTP mirrors, gcc bugs,
library problems, or whatever, the questions always go to you first).

Nobody actually _accueses_ you of being responsible for these things but
the questions make you probably _feel_ responsible nevertheless.


I think it's time for a reward. I also think several people here would
agree with me. And I ALSO think we can all spare $10 or something for a
good cause. ;)

So, tell us what you would like, a CD burner, new harddisk, 21" TFT flat
screen (ok, you'll need a lot of fans for that ;) and I'll try to
coordinate the rest. (If someone who lives geographically nearer to you
wants to take over it's fine with me and probably easier, though. I've done
this before but never internationally ...)

Also I'd like to hear from the other people on this list what they think of
the idea, or if they have a different idea.

I'll try and put my thoughts and KDE configuration into readable and
understandable form. ;)

My first wish would be: don't show any user icons in kdm by default. ;)

Same to you, thanks again for everything :-)
