Back up and running

So I've been out of touch for a bit with my recent hard drive failures. Let me just say Knoppix has no problems getting data off of hard drives that contain bad blocks. ;) All my data (i.e. mp3s/digital pics) have been saved and most importantly, my vimrc.

I'm now on a new OpenSuse 10.2 install with 3.5.5 as the default. It's working out pretty well so far. I had to do some installation source magic to get mp3 support for the supplied (read crippled) xine backend. This also means I'll be able to hit the ground running with continuing the KDE4 porting of SK and working on existing bugs for the upcoming 3.5.6 release.

And I'd just like to give kmail some credit. I backed up my .kde/share/apps/kmail/ directory and the kmailrc, and after restoring it on the new install, things just worked. Except for the gui not redrawing between getting emails(all 2772 of them I might add), things are back to normal. Maybe I should unsubscribe from some of those lists someday.
