I decided that I wanted to try this to see what I can accomplish. It is much easier to put my thoughts down here than it is on my page at the moment (finding time is a hard issue right now).
I am currently working on a few things for themes.org - A project management tool because I feel we could use it. Also, I am short on staff so if you are good at PHP+MySQL heh.. I can use you ;) So if you would like to help, please contact me. Thanks
Currently I have 2 dormant staff members and 1 that is difficult to get a hold of... this is making things difficult since there are large projects coming around and staff members are dropping due to the need for time to dedicate themselves to college/schooling.
When I can get around to it and don't get totally lazy, I'll write up some documentation on how to do Eterm menu's.. Right now I am trying to do lots of stuff. I'm trying to learn GTK+ so I can contribute to sprite, which is an Eterm theme creation program. Right now, it's confusing me ... I see how the widgets are and all but I guess I am a little .. confused where the actual code goes. I haven't actually tried to do my own GTK+ stuff yet, but I'm sure I will soon and I'll put it up on my site.
On further note, getting nVidia's drivers to work on my system was quite an experience. First, it would hardware lock my system when I tried to start X, so mandrake said "Hey, that's a problem with old bios I've heard" So I took the chance, did it. Tried IRQ setting from Edge to Level - actually made it worse. Went back to Edge. The updating bios thing was a great idea, but it didn't work that long. So someone on #nvidia said "Hey, there's a problem with some cards doing a bios repost. Turn it on!" So I went in, enabled it. Got further, but still crashes. So then my boyfriend said "Ok, AGP support is broken" disabled AGP support all together. Wouldn't you know - it works.
I actually thought the drivers had some stuff that would "depend" on AGP but apparently no.
This has probably gotten a bit too long now - hehe.
