Business is Business

So life has been quite difficult these past several months. I have struggled greatly with school simply because I have not had the time to keep up with my assignments and readings for class along with everything else going on in life (most notably work and family). So I decided to take a break from school in order to pursue other interests. In particular a buddy and I are going to start up a business together. I already have work lined up for us. I figure it will be a few months before we approach anything near stable business. I really hope this works out.

GIMP Plugins

A buddy of mine asked me today to make him a plugin for GIMP. I’ve never written a true plugin for anything, but have wanted too. Now is a great opportunity. I need to start reading up on this subject and give it a try.

If you haven’t tried it yet, GIMP is a free program similar to Photoshop. In Ubuntu you can install it easily by running the following command in your terminal:

sudo apt-get install gimp

Collabtive update

Ok last night / this morning I installed Collabtive to test it out. The install was really simple. Make a MySQL database, upload the files to your webhost (be sure to put them all in their own directory if you have other content on your host), navagate to your collabtive install’s root then install.php and follow the instructions. Once you’re done delete install.php and update.php

I setup a project and some related milestones and tasks. It looks like it is lacking one really important feature: SVN. But for free open source… It’s a great deal! Someday when I get time maybe I’ll add svn functionality to it.
