pcolijn: it is possible to get your LJ friends page as a RSS feed. But it is not easy. LJ does not work with HTTP authentication (or I missed something), but with Firefox, for example, if you log in, you can get it. Maybe that is the trick. Log in, get the cookie and use it to request the feed.

James: there is a KDE control panel option for that. It is buried in "Keyboard and Mouse" -> "Mouse" and in the "General" tab there is an option to configure that. Confusing, huh? Yeah it took me two or 3 guesses to find it this time, and I have already been there, done that. This settings influence Konqueror, digiKam, etc. And my opinion is that this setting should be double click by default.
