Konqueror sucks

I find Konqueror to be the WORST piece of software, EVER. That doesn’t mean that its code or architecture is bad, on the contrary. But the usability of the thing is well below mediocre. It’s so unessesarily bloated and complex that it’s not funny anymore. I use computers for so many years, and Konqueror just scares me away. There are so many buttons that I don’t know what they do, while a file manager should be simple and intuitive. Konqueror is not.

Chimpanzee’s artwork on the block

Brightly colored paintings by Congo the chimpanzee are going on sale at a prestigious London auction house alongside works by Andy Warhol and Renoir.”

Maybe I should go back to painting too… :o)

Dad admits killings

An ex-convict has admitted punching, kicking and stabbing to death his 8-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old best friend on Mother’s Day, prosecutors in suburban Chicago said. […] Prosecutors are calling the killings “a slaughter.” Laura Hobbs was stabbed 20 times and Krystal Tobias was stabbed 11 times, they said.”

What a sick fuck. I hope he gets the electric chair, and soon (if his inmates don’t get him sooner).
