This page is
for all those out there who adore Wanda the GNOME fish.
(Actually I've called mine Karen, but that's besides the point)
hope that the GNOME foundation will ontinue
to include this lovable fish in
all their future distributions. I mean, the surrealist melting clocks, weather forecaster
and game of life applets are all very fine and have their own place, but Wanda is another
thing altogether :- a shining star among humble applets.
the unenlightened, Wanda the GNOME fish is a small applet
that sits in your desktop panel. It doesn't need watering or feeding,
and unlike other fishes, it responds to a click of a mouse button
by dispensing little gems of pure wit and perspicacity.
Oh well, yes -- quite often, Wanda is a fish that plagiarises,
but personally, I can't resist a fish that does that with quite
so much panache.
your very own Wanda the GNOME fish here. Use GNOME!
This is what the old Wanda used to look like. But she's had a very nice make-over since!
Old Wanda before her face-lift
"God instructs the heart, not by ideas, but by pain and contradictions."
"The person with one watch knows what time it is, the person with two watches is never sure."
"I have discovered that all human evil comes from this - man's being unable to sit still in a room."
"No guest is so welcome in a friend's house that he will not become a nuisance after three days."
(Titus Maccius Plautus)
Surreal Wanda quote of the day
"I'm using my X-RAY vision to obtain a rare glimpse of the INNER WORKINGS of this POTATO!"
If you're one of
the people who worked on making (or improving) this lovely little applet, do
let me know.
Or just post your favourite Wanda quotes here.
