Finish to read C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4

I've finished to read C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 and to code its tutorials finally. My sample of last widget on this book is below:

This book is useful for my basic learnings. But this book had published when Qt version was 4.1, and 2nd edition of this book is for Qt 4.3. Of course, current version is Qt 4.5 and Qt 4.6 will be released soon. So I hope someone will publish Qt 4.5 / Qt 4.6 book in English ... or in Japanese if possible.

Evaluate RubyMine 2.0

While NetBeans 6.8 RC1 has never released (and been postponed 3 times), JetBrains releases yet another Ruby IDE ... RubyMine 2.0.

It's same with NetBeans that RubyMine runs on JVM. But it's not same with NetBeans that RubyMine 99 dollars while NetBeans is 0 dollars. So I have signed up its 30-days evaluation and install on openSUSE 11.2.

And I using it some days and I'm not feel bad. When evaluation period will be over and If NetBeans 6.8 FCS will not be released in that time, I will pay 99 dollars for RubyMine!?

Installing QtRuby on Ruby 1.9.1 from openSUSE source rpm

At 1st, install Ruby 1.9.1 with same instruction of this article:

Then I should go to install QtRuby with source from repository, but smoke/generator of QtRuby is still unstable yet as I had write in this article:
phosphorescence: Confusing about smoke/generator

So I decide to install from source RPM package of openSUSE 11.2 - my own environment.

I have installed openSUSE 11.2

I have installed openSUSE 11.2 on this weekend. It was very easy because of YaST installer and KDE 4.3 is more beautiful than older openSUSE's one.

But there is one curious point. It's non-English directory names in home directory. For example, my environment is below:

In yesterday, openSUSE 11.2 release memorial party was held at Tokyo, Japan. This party has became a count-down party because iso images of 11.2 were not mirrored yet, and had finished mirroring at the end of party.
