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
feeling.  ^_^

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.
