Well, I finaly got Linux running on my main machine. This will give me the power to work on my video software and run it too :)

I have just found out that the FTEA conference is next weekend so me and my supervisor are busy getting our presentation ready. We will be talking about using multimedia in our technology classes.

Working with RB and SC, PTV will be undergoing a positive change. We want to build more of a profesional feel to the program. Those two seem to have some good ideas on how to do it. Also, today we got our Digital Juice audio and video libraries. These will make the show look ten times better.

On the Open Source front, I've been talking with Barbicane on #schoolforge(opn) about GOVIA and how the database should work. I'll be working on the client side interfaces to the system. This will be a great shot in the arm to teachers and students looking for free media to use in the classroom.

Well, I've been busy finishing a large piece for PTV so that has kept me pretty busy. I've spent some time working on the matterial Playground code. I'm redoing the Glade file to work with the new layout spec. My next task is to start interfacing the objects in the UI file to real code. Man, I really love libglade.

Here is a quick background on my thoughts for Playground. Using libglade, I will load the file (with mf_loadui) playground.glade and expose certain objects to Foundation. When an extension loads it will be given a new "sandbox" to draw its interface in. This is the current thought at least. We shall see.

Well, just getting over being sick for a week. I'm now even more behind in all my work. Most of my time is being spent organizing productions for our tv show Pirated Television and the TSA State competition.

I've been working some with Schoolforge and looking at ideas related to storyboarding software in matterial.
