huzzah! training day today.
technical difficulties continue: when we got back to the hostel last night, another section had lost power, including my room. blarg. we were all tired though, so after a halfhearted attempt to put on a movie we just went to bed. in the morning, we arrived at UCSD… only to find none of us had the key (it was with jeff, who was waiting for someone else at the hostel). luckily there’s some lady upstairs with keys, though.
oh, and since last night identica won’t let me post anything. I get error 400 every time and I can’t figure out why. :/
Anyways, we’re doing qt training right now. model-view and events and threads, oh my! ;) I’ve learnt lots of interesting things already. One pattern we commonly use in KDE is actually not ideal in qt4: using a singleshot timer with timeout 0 to do delayed stuff. Using QMetaObject::invokeMethod with a queued connection does the same thing, and can even take arguments. :)
We had some lovely sunshine this morning, but the storm’s back now… Troy claims he’s going into the ocean tonight regardless. What is it with kde developers and cold bodies of water? ;)
