well, as i type this, gstreamer is installing on my machine, hopefully step 1 of 3 in getting rhythmbox to work.

i've started to get the hacking urge again, postponed by a mindless summer of driving, sleep, and no work whatsoever. of course, wingo spent much time this summer (while i was slacking) getting a nice app out the door, and that's been a source of some of the hacking urge as well. but now i'm on the job, programming all day and beering on the weekends. what other ingredients are needed to start programming in one's free timeĀ ? perhaps just an internet connection (check) and the right mindset (check) and lots of unclaimed or low(er) priority time (check).

so the plan is to get to work once more on drumbox. granted, there are already drum machine apps out there, but i don't think they have good interfaces for my uses. also, i just want to hack on a program for a bit. :)
