The Story of Konserve
Somewhen in the beginning of the year 2002 my dear girlfriend Christiane was about to finish her 120 pages long thesis. The day the thesis was to be handed in was still two weeks away.
At this point the idea for konserve was born. It took a couple of months to get the basics up and running. But it was worth the effort, since during the work on my own thesis konserve saved important files two times (I have been rm-ing too heavily).
By the way, most of the thesis of Christiane could be saved because we found a several-days-old postscript file of the thesis on a floppy disc. The ASCII text could be extracted and after two days of heavy LaTeX typesetting it was almost like before.
The Name of Konserve
The root of the name is the verb: "to conserve", since Konserve is meant to conserve data for later use. But for a real KDE application the initial c had to be replace by a k. Hence the name Konserve. This is conicidentally the german word for "can", which again is choosen as the icon for Konserve.
