More podcasts

Amazing. Today I found the Gimp podcast at Meet the Gimp ( and I mentioned how great it would be if someone did one on InkScape and guess what!? I found one!

Meet Screencasters... (


Miro and Podcasting

MythTV is great. I've finally started to get things working and we're going to move so my plan is to finish shortly after the move.

However, not everything can be found on TV. Yes, you can download your favorite shows from through Bittorrent but I was thinking more along the lines of Podcasts.

There's quite a few of them and I've been using Miro (use to be called Democracy) to subscribe to a few of them. The ones that I JUST found and think is great is called "Meet The GIMP" ( and deals with the Open Source application GIMP. Finally someone has started to show how to use GIMP. I've wanted to learn how to use it but since I'm not really a great graphics artist I haven't spend a lot of time playing with the application's features to see how they work. However, this RSS feed got me interested!

Now if they only had one for InkScape, I think I'd be all set!


Sickness Sucks

It's amazing that I am once again writing about being sick. It's been a while since my last post and I just thought I'd write something quickly. Both my son and I were sick again. I was actually sick for a longer period of time (and I'm still not completely over it.)

However, I've been reading quite a bit about modern medicine and some of the new medications and advancements coming down the line. I've also watched a video from TED ( about regenerative medicine. It's a speech given by Alan Russell and it's quite amazing to watch. (

I also saw a few other videos including one of Jennifer Lin ( a pianist that... well can compose "on the fly" and is quite amazing.
