    no thanks, I’m using Superkaramba on my Ubuntu-Linux:

  • Michael Tughan

    About SuperKaramba, I’m seeing if I can install it on my Fedora installation and port the widget to it like I ported it to the PC engine from Dashboard. That sound good to you?

    hey will you stop with the number thing it is really annoying and i find it on almost every post. i may be 10 but i have been to almost every page and theres numbers.
    for those who are mature but do the number thing prove your mature and quit saying “YAY IM 1st TO POST!!” or whatever i just get so annoyed.
    also this is an awsome wigit!

  • kunter, web designer

    The gadget is just fine, among the zillions of similar gadgets out there. I would like to hear about its back-end development, however.

    best regards;
    p.s. am I supposed to be fifty two? :p

    And Anonymous.. Just because some of us decide to have some fun and be immature once in a while doesn’t give you the excuse to insult us.

    I haven’t tried it, but is it for Vista only, or not?

    it stopped at 50?
    so sad …

    btw, I found this again while I was googling myself – lol (actually I was googling both myself, and the OTHER person who seems to be using the same name as me for stuff online … I know why I am aykayem … I wonder why they are … I made the name up, but someone else could have done the same thing, the same way, and ended up with the same thing, seeing it is actually based on the initials of my full name … or at least it was my name/initials before I got married, the now that I am married version does not roll off the tounge anywhere near as well – lol)
