People Behind KDE: Allan Sandfeld Jensen

Tonight in the two-weekly People Behind KDE series we are featuring Allan Sandfeld Jensen. He is a KDE core developer, mostly active for KHTML and KDE multimedia. After reading the interview you will know what his personal "carewolf" looks like, together with all other personal things you have to know about this developer.


thank you for the wonderful PBK.. as usual :)

Tell her you could live in the States and you have to be on opposite coasts at least 4 weeks per year. The distance is a helluva lot farther than her getting on the rail and visiting you in a short time.

Hi Allan! Your work on KDE is much appreciated! By the way, I think you're cute. ;-)

> By the way, I think you're cute. ;-)

I completely agree with you !

This is obviously a try to discourage cursory comments as could be read after Celeste's featuring on PBK. I don't know if that's a good and proper way, but it's worth a try, I think.

So ignoring his technical merits and stuff: he surely is a hot rod. A man shouldn't be ashamed to be complimented on his looks.

cu, tom

Allen, don't let these guys intimidate you. The fact that you're such a hot looker does not hinder you coding skills at all and I would love to join you on a keyboard sometime. '-)

Having met the guy in person, I can assure you all, he has a class 'A' bottom.

I demand photographic proof! :-)

>I have committed my random access KIO to trunk which means you can read and write anywhere in a remote file if the protocol supports it, usefull for seeking and stuff.

Is there a list of protocols that support seeking? I'm particularly interested about SSH (fish:/), and Samba (smb:/), and FTP.

By AC at Thu, 2006/09/14 - 5:00am

Only file in SVN and http in my branch.

I am planning on looking into fish the next time I have spare time and Coolo promised to do Samba.
