Fruits of boredom…

Sometimes I wonder how many of the things we use today started off as ideas from people who were bored and not doing what they were supposed to be doing…

This isn’t anything major at all, but today I noticed that the iChat style included in the current versions of Kopete is actually based off one I made almost 2 years ago.

I was bored in one of my CS classes at the time, and wondered if I could put together an iChat style for Kopete, which was back in an 0.2 version or such at the time. Started working on it there in class, finishing it off later, then pretty much forgot about it. Shortly after I made it, my laptop died, and that was my only linux machine with a GUI, so I couldn’t exactly work on it anymore :D

Just sort of funny that something put together on a whim ended up being part of an offical distribution of the program :)
