A Called Strike At The Knees!

Back online after 14 hours downtime. I hate my ISP. Gotta love monopolies. I'd tell them to get under my desk if I could, but there's no more room with Jinglepants already down there.

Last week I ordered and assembled my new music desk, the "Producer" series from Studio RTA. It's a beast, but that's exactly what i want in a desk that can hold my monitors (audio and video), all my rackmount gear, a control surface (when I take the plunge), my computer, and still have room left over to have a pad of paper for writing stuff down. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I sat down this morning and worked out a new song, perhaps I'll post it after I've given it a bit more work.

Saw Kansas (the legendary rock band) last weekend; they were playing a local "festival" where I live (yes, that's right, I could walk to see Kansas). Never my type of music, but a fun show nonetheless. Same number of bras as Toby, much older crowd. You do the math. Ewwww.

Making good progress on Camino. We're getting lots of great feedback and are pleasantly surprised at the high quality of alpha2. We're working to get the Java Embedding Plugin into the nightly builds, that's probably our single largest missing piece for beta. Look for some more roadmap updates in the next couple of weeks.
