Tonight has been eventful so far (and it's not over yet). I got home and asked pino about ktts konq plugin which I'd fixed the icon for earlier, then noticed it didn't work. He fixed it up quickly (thanks pino) and now we can speak web pages from konq again.
While pino was busy doing that, Conor "Level 1" Sullivan, sent me a cool wobble effect for kwin I tried out for him. Besides when it causes a crash, it works fine and is pretty cool. (WARNING: when used in conjunction with the shadow effect, you get wobbly windows with square shadows;)
Anyway, one of us will be looking into fixing the crash so the code can be checked in for all to enjoy.
