Yesterday I spent a couple of hours trying to resolve bug report 
1842. The Help button code is in place but the button does not 

Not to mention that the default size of the list box window clips 
half the text to be unreadable.

After several attempts to patch with my awful C++ skills, I walked 
away in frustration. Then I asked myself: Does anybody use this low 
quality garbage? Who actually writes such crappy software? Is there 
a reason why such apps never were pulled into the main KDE trunk? 
Why are we supporting junk? Why do people use such software and 
then pretend the app is not half broken?

This is what I mean by "chicken shit" bugs. These kinds of bugs 
never should exist in the first place.

Today I asked myself, Why am I spending time on junk? Stop building 
the crappy stuff and the problem goes away. Nobody else seems to 
care that this grabage is broken, why should I?

The real problem is my standards are too high. I need to learn to 
accept that three round wheels and one wheel shaped like an octagon 
is "good enough."
