A little tip: KDE does have a GUI for changing your unix password, it's called kdepasswd (installed with the kdepasswd package in the System/GUI/KDE group).

Unfortunately it's not in the Kicker menu.  You can just run it from Krunner (Alt+F2) though.

It'd be Really Nice if a Launcher was in Kicker by default too...

So much Trek in this image. It's awesome
 
This morning aboard the International Space Station, European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti brewed the first espresso ever in space. After, she enjoyed the beverage viewing Earth from the station's cupola and wrote, "Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised. Fresh espresso in the new Zero-G cup! To boldly brew..."

Read why brews served in microgravity will percolate better science than coffee, thanks to the Space Cup: http://go.nasa.gov/1E7n8NA

not sure about the singing Fran, but I reckon if you got out your guitar and one of your effects units you'd both be rocking 😊

Introduction

I'm just this guy, you know? 
 
I am a family man, father of three lovely boys. Happily married for 15 years, currently living in Hobart, Tasmania. I play musical instruments (Trombone/Timpani/Traps) and I hold a 2nd Dan ("black belt") in Taekwondo. I like Open Architecture computers, Open Source software, and Open Crown hats. Akubra, of course :D

On a professional level, I am a Computer Applications Support Engineer, focusing on the application of technology to business functions in finance and government, and bridging between the Developer, BA/QA  and Systems worlds, which I've been doing since before there was a "DevOps" movement. I have worked with major I.T. firms as well as a government owned forest management organisation. I am an experienced cat herder and specialize in fitting round pegs to square holes. Handy in a tight squeeze to help get that late project of yours over the line.

My strengths include systems administration and automation, configuration management, database design, development and implementation, change management, incident response and root-cause analysis. I know a very little about an awful lot of tech' -- enough to shoot myself in the foot and take a leg off. People seem to think this makes me a good person to come to when they are in a bind.

So far I've delivered.
