KDE 4.4.0

I got the chance to install and toy around with KDE 4.4.0 and some of the new program additions. Right now everything seems to function rather well, no real changes in performance from 4.3.0. It’s the new way of selecting plasma apps for the desktop, desktop activities, and desktop layouts that take the cake this time around.

In previous 4.x releases you got a scroll menu of applets for your desktop and panels when you wanted to add widgets. Now you get a filmstrip at the bottom of the screen that you can select your widgets from. it makes looking for things a little easier.

Desktop acivitys are also a good thing. This plays into the netbook desktop layout which allows you to organize your self and your display as well as you can. It also starts out as a netbook layout setup to make your life easier if you have a netook your installing on. I suggest you give it a try and see what you think.

When We Overload Ourselves

I’ve spent the last few hours trying to figure out some things relating to my blog here and my accounts with facebook, myspace, twitter, all of that. fact is though, it seems everyone has pages upon pages of social networking sites. If you only needed one that be nice. But each site grants different things. And the bitch of it is that you really should try to link most of them together as you can. Hence why I’m having such a headache. I found stuff to help with all of it but it’s difficult for someone like me that’s completely dead to the world on some things.

But the real thing to think of that I’m getting to is this. Do we really need to spread what we post from here to every corner of the net? Does everyone need to know everything at every moment? Are we so in need of knowing that someone is listening that we have to continuously post place after place after place?

Just some questions for you to consider.
