Glimpse of Tellico on KDE4

Last night, I finally got the KDE4 port of Tellico to compile and run. There are a few things that have been disabled until I figure out the KDE4 equivalents, but the last couple of months work has paid off. Like most everyone else who ported their application, the first run basically shows misplaced menus, icons, overlapping text, etc. But here it is…

It runs very slowly so I suspect I have a bad loop somewhere, or a hung job, or something. But at least, it’s a start. I can actually test-run it and figure out what’s going on.

Developing on it has been different since I can’t figure out how to get KDevelop3 to do what I want in the KDE4 build approach (separate build-dir, using cmake, etc.). Mostly, it’s been kate.

The work is going on in the Tellico SVN trunk.

Fraudulent thephotoscentral.com Charge

As everyone should do, I was reviewing the activity on my credit card this morning, as I just got back from a long trip. Turns out there’s a fraudulent charge for $9.87 from a vendor listed as thephotoscentral.com. A web search turned up other people with similar fraudulent charges from the same vendor. I called my credit card to contest the charge, and they were quick to credit my account. So quick, I wonder if they had previous complaints about the vendor.

There was a contact phone number attached to the vendor, but from what I can tell, there’s no point in trying to call them.
