Quickies: KDEvibes, Zeroconf, New User Guide, Konqi's Background

On Artemio's homepage
I read that the new
SUSE version 9.1 uses
KDEvibes,
a collection of system sounds for the KDE desktop. More system sounds can be found at KDE-Look.org.

While looking around at the excellent KDE Wiki I found
this page
about integrating Zeroconf into KDE Apps.
Recently the project
was registered at SourceForge.

Although you are not a perfect English speaker and you have no knowlegde of DocBook you do have the skill to explain something fairly clearly in a non-technical manner?
You could help writing the new userguide which recently
appeared in KDE CVS.
This is the start of a complete rewrite of the
old KDE User Guide. You can
catch a glimpse
of the new userguide. So don't wait but
apply for that job.

To finish Quickies I dug up some info about Konqi
and his background.

Comments

Don't know if it is technically possible but I would really appreciate if future Quickies would use new lines for separating different topics. Another suggestion would be to separate them using some asterisks (*), as in:

"Recently the project was registered at SourceForge. *** Although you are not a perfect English speaker and you have no knowlegde of DocBook you do have the skill to explain something fairly clearly in a non-technical manner?"

Just my 2 cents.
Sorry for my bad english.

I'm currently very busy with writing my new track, but I have already created lots of new effects for KDEvibes. I hope to start writing new jingles in next few days.

The original request for help for the User Guide that I sent to the kde-quality list is archived at: https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-quality/2004-May/000608.html

It has some useful information about how to help with the User Guide.

(Fab, perhaps it would be useful to link to this message in the story?)

Regards,
Phil
