Kate: More eye-candy

Two years ago we had the KDE conference in Ludwigsburg, Germany. At that time, Martijn Klingens committed a patch to show trailing spaces in Kate. I just change the visualization a bit, the change is in for KDE4 :) Tabs are marked with a '»' character, and spaces with a dot. On the left you can see the old and on the right the new version; Here is a screenshot:

I use the suspend2-sources in Gentoo. After upgrading to XOrg7.1 with newest ATI drivers (fglrx, version 8.29.6) hibernate did not work anymore. Suspend-to-disk hanged at the point: "Doing atomic copy".

While searching the web I found a fix: Edit hibernate.conf (or /etc/hibernate/common.conf) and set
ProcSetting extra_pages_allowance 20000
That did the trick :) Tomorrow will be my second attempt to fly to Dublin. So far it looks pretty promising :)

Bad Luck

As everyone else I wanted to fly to Dublin on friday, too. While packing the day before I noticed I could not find my identity card. To make it short: I was at the airport with a copy and several other papers that (more or less) state my identity, but no luck. There is no way to travel without a valid identity card to Dublin.

So I'll take another plane 5 days later, on wednesday. There is a small chance (maybe 5%) I might be able to come on monday already. Let's see... :)

All in all I'm missing almost all of the highlights, just look into the conference program.

Lesson learned: Start packing 1-2 weeks before. sooooo stupid :(
