I found a fixed Kopete package on a nifty SUSE hobbiest’s site. However, it was for KDE 3.4 and I was using 3.3.2a. So, I decided to do some updating on my computer. The YaST tool in SUSE handled it very well, actually. I added a couple of ftp sources to the list, fixed a couple of minor dependency issues, and then it went to town. About 30 minutes and 400+ megabytes later, I had the newest KDE installed! It’s pretty nice. I don’t notice too many differences from before, although the new RSS reader, akregator, is nifty. Now I can keep track of everyone’s blogs without having to check their sites manually!
On a completely different note, the CD and music (SATB + instrumental) for Bob Hurd‘s Ubi Caritas Mass came in yesterday. It’s a nice, mostly choral Mass setting and collection of liturgical songs. I especially like the Gloria. It has a catchy Latin refrain and chanted English verses. We also used the intercession prayer setting here for a solemn vespers back in December; it’s also very nice and again splits Latin and English. And so on… it’s a very well recorded CD and some great liturgical music. I’m quite happy with it, anyway. Maybe we’ll be able to use some of it at the seminary?
