Same for me and icq protocol in kopete, with no help from outside and too many 
wishes and problems to face it gets annoying. fortunately that problem is 
gone in kopete as the old icq plugin is dead :)

Also Charles thought he would get more positive feedback about Noatun, 
unfrotunately users just complain if things don't work, they almost never say 
"thank you". That's quite annoying too and you have to think about that fact 
everytime you get another rant that makes you sad. At least I try to do that, 
it's of no use waiting for that never to come "thank you".

Note for Charles: keep in mind that you're not the only one working on Noatun, 
currently we have at least two guys named exa and mETz working on playlists 
so the future is not that dark after all ;)

Bye, Stefan aka mETz
