Because I am nothing but a lifeless husk that serves as a host for a scraggly neck-beard.
I'll start by complaining about a Lunix thing, just to maximize
how horrible I am.
The K Desktop Environment lets you embed little widgets into your desktop (which they call "plasmoids," because they call the desktop "plasma"). One of these nifty little plasmoids is called Comics; as you might guess, it lets you view webcomics right on your desktop. I have helpfully screencapped my desktop and circled the Comics plasmoid.
- they're by people who couldn't figure out what the hell was going on with that API and ended up producing something that occasionally blows up.
. And the Plasma desktop is apparently central to the way that KDE works such that, if it goes down, your entire login session will ultimately get royally screwed up (as opposed to the session just detecting the hang, killing the Plasma session and re-launching it, which is what real software engineers would have done).
I haven't kept track of this, so maybe they've fixed it since the last time I looked at it (which was September). But I kinda doubt it.
