    Notes and Ideas

    In Want of a Title

    • a gentle introduction
    • start Konquerer
    • choosing 'Home Folder'
      • 'Hide Navigation Panel (F9)'
    • 'Settings' -> 'Configure View Profiles'
    • 'Profile name:'
      • type "My Project" (use a more pleasing name)
      • check 'Save URLs in profile'
      • check 'Save windows size in profile'
    • 'Settings' -> 'Save View Changes per Folder'
    • open/create a project folder (can I avoid the term "folder"? Not without circumstances.)
    • 'Location' -> 'New Tab (Ctrl+Shift+N)'
    • 'Location' -> 'Open Location (Ctrl+O)'
    • open (each in a new tab)
      • an image
      • a (short) movie
      • a PDF file
      • some web-pages
      • one or two pages with content releated to the project
      • one general "reference page" (Wikipedia?)
      • one dictionnary (Miriam-Webster? dict.cc?)
    • save the project
    • close Konquerer

    A Word to My Fellow Brethen of the Ancient Order of Electrical Circuitry

    • if you're not talking to another system administrator, developer or some kind of tech-guy, forget about files, folders, hard drives, devices and such.
    • start to think in "projects" (or "tasks") like "This are the tales of my grandfathers youth", "That are pictures from my holidays", "This is a thesis about medieval artifacts in the valley" and so on.
    • don't re-invent the wheel.
    • use, what's already there and glue that stuff together.
    • remember Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who happens to be both a pioneer in technology and a great poet. He noticed, that technics starts primitive, grows complicated and matures simple.
    • Nepomuk looks like the thing to power a PIA.

    ToDo

    • outline for the "Using Konquerer as a project-oriented information aggregator"-stuff
    • screen-shots
    • (done) contribute to neverendingo's article "Get involved"

    Documentation

    • to avoid confusion, it's useful to create a role account with a pristine installation of KDE.
    • the choosen distribution might be a remaining source of a different "look'n'feel".
    • hence, the distribution should be documented at least in the meta-information of a documenation.
    • is there a kind of "KDE Reference Installation"? Something, it's agreed upon, that this is the proper "look'n'feel" for all things concerning documentation?
    • whom to aks? Whom to suggest such a thing?
