Spent a little time putting off classwork last night, and I looked into figuring out the database formats for my Doonesbury Flashbacks cd, which contains the first 25 years of the Doonesbury comic strip. I used it for the last time about 5 years ago, before I switched over to Linux.

So, I threw together a quick C program that dumps all the jpegs out of the big databases.. Now I just need to integrate the searching functionality of the original program and slap a GNOME interface onto it. Should be a relatively quick project - I'll work on it over the holidays.
