k3b 100%

I find k3b to be the best CD/DVD burning software I've ever seen (both on Linux and Windows). It is nice, slick, fast, stable and works just as it should. There is only one minor glitch bothering me. The darn 100% marker in bottom-left corner of file browser. It sits there and always covers one of the files or directories. Many times I need to select that file or enter that directory. You can't remove it by clicking or anyhow.

I wish someone makes it go away. :)

Dune and Iron Maiden

I just finished reading the last, 6th book of Frank Herbert's Dune series. Excellent stuff, they say Frank Herbert is to Sci-Fi what is Tolkien for Fantasy. Anyway, during the course of reading the books, I complied a list of memorable quotes. They are not grouped, but rather in the same order they appear in the books (with little shuffle to put similar things together).

After playing the Dune game and watching the Dune movie, reading the Dune books concludes it. BTW, while reading I listened to Iron Maiden music. It goes together very good (if you like heavy-metal, of course).
