OK. I assume that is the file that I don't have yet. I'm going to have
to create that ain't I? lol

Not real sure what I am looking for but heck, I can do a rm -rf ~/.kde4
and fix it. o-O Anyway.
I went there and I do have something under Contacts. The others are
blank. It says Default Address Book then File then Yes. It also has a
check mark for it. I tried to remove the check mark to "disable" the
thing but KDE got really pissed about that. It gave me a warm and wet
feeling. Stuff went dark and a little error message popped up that
reminded me of HAL 2000. It said 'I can't do that'. Glad I don't have
that speech software on here. :-O It would be more than a wet
I don't mind messing with this. I'm sort of bored since I can't sleep
most of the time anyway. I think the devs just need more time. It is a
lot better than it was when I first installed it a month or so ago.
Should I ditch the SQL thingy I got and install MySQL or something? As
long as everything else works, KDE 3 wise, I don't mind.
Oh, one more pet peeve. How do I make my clock use the 12 hour format
instead of the 24 hour? I'm not in the military. I know when it is
dark or sunny.
