Success (!) on getting Kmail 1.x working again in KDE 4.9.4. I simply recompiled the kdepimlibs package, and forced the kmail1 binary to use the new ones. This fixes the profile issues. I suspect once KDE 5 hits, though, Kmail 1.x is dead for good.
For my part, I suffered through the nasty port of Kmail to Akonadi, which was a truly awful experience, but I got through it with my folders intact and it's finally back to a state resembling usability, though not nearly as fast or solid as the original. The Kmail user interface is still the best going, and one day I might actually see some benefit from the new database backend, instead of just pain, races and nonsensical warnings.
Personally, I never did get the newer Kmail working adequately, and am compiling the last 1.x version (from KDE 4.4 or so) and using that. That worked perfectly well up to KDE 4.8. Once KDE 4.9 was released, the profiles stopped working. Previously, you could have separate inbox, sent-mail, servers, etc for different email addresses, and when you sent from each email address, it used the correct sent-folder, etc. Now, it all defaults to local folders. So I don't know what to do next. Dig into the code, I guess, and try to hack it again. Why can't they just leave working programs alone???
They also have Luma/Chroma inputs, which is also what the C64/C128 can output. And those two signals together are basically an S-video connector. The C64 did it before S-video was even a standard. I'm actually looking for such an Amiga monitor for my C128-D, to use L/C in 40-column mode, and the digital RGB in 128 80-column mode. Yes, I probably need another hobby
I wouldn't call that lying, I'd call that sleazy.
So in other words, the definition of a lawyer.
Talk about damning with faint praise.
And this is why it just isn't worth getting married (or involved with anyone at all) in todays society.
I have to completely agree with this. I've been involved with several large-scale RFPs, and this is exactly how it goes. The only thing I'd add is that like clockwork, any party that doesn't win threatens to sue someone. It happens every time. They must be teaching this in business school or something. I've never seen a more childish group of people.
Not sure if you're being serious or not, but if so, no wonder the the current business world is so screwed up. It seems to be just a childish high-school popularity contest all over again. And IME, many business-people are the most childish, vindictive people I've ever met.
Isn't this how most business people think? IME, I've never in my life encountered a group of people who are so prejudiced toward those that actually do the work. And the further one is removed from actually getting their hands 'dirty' and doing something, the more they're praised. No wonder society is so screwed up.
I know it's almost impossible for Windows' fans to understand, but sometimes dealing with things not working is still better than dealing with problems in Windows. At least with the former there's a chance that (a) someone will fix it, or (b) you can learn to fix it yourself. That just isn't an option in Windows. If there's a bug and it's closed-source, there's nothing you can do about it.
Now, I understand how someone using Windows without any problems (if that is even possible) would think that all Linux users are masochists, but personally I cannot stand running Windows, and I feel my blood pressure rise any time I'm forced to. I'll deal with Linux issues any day.
"Spock, did you see the looks on their faces?" "Yes, Captain, a sort of vacant contentment."
