I have been putting off doing this for a little while now.

Once I get my portable server farm set up in a way that doesn't make me want to punch babies (well, more than usual), I'll have to remember to submit all my KDE4 Themes, Iconsets, Customisations, Widgetsets and other Linux based stylization.

I mean... yeah, I'd be doing my stuff in Linux and most likely KDE4... as well, I HATE Gnome3... with XFCE and LXDE not really lending well to customization, and Enlightenment 18 does not appear to exist. I also cannot afford an Apple... and I'm mostly waiting to get a Windows 8 computer for the purpose of busting into it, and teaching it how to dance for my wily fingers.

The thing is, I just need a kick in my butt to get to it... and I guess this might be the one,

I'll need to grab a Blank DVD for my Fedora DVD ISO, and play around with the current tools for KDE4...

I'm more likely to just submit a bunch of stuff, and then tell you when I can do the later ones.

The only trouble I can imagine will be coming up with topics for articles. Other than that: count me in!

Ohhhhhh am I promoting this xD
Since I did the "History of Dolling" article for Project Educate, I have no idea what I'd write about.
8D But the community might!
