Sad news

Just read that Terry Pratchett has a rare early onset Alzheimer's. As he points out he ain't dead yet, but its still sad to think about the decade or two or three of books that now won't be written (assuming he doesn't pull a Stephen Hawkins).

In Pratchettian style he notes that frequently people want to help in such situations, but he'd only accept offers from "very high-end experts in brain chemistry."

In entirely unrelated news (and just to make this somewhat KDE related), Video Player should start remembering your position when you reopen a video pretty soon. While poking around the Phonon API today I remembered the issue I had with adding a context menu to fullscreen mode when I was working on it back in the Spring... but thats for later.
