CAcert.org is a community driven, Certificate Authority that issues certificates to the public at large for free. I’m going to become an assurer for them as soon as possible, and start using a certificate issued from them to secure this site.

diva software, a project written with mono, is an video editing package that is still starting up. The interface is clean, and looks like it’ll be in a position to be a great video editing tool. I’m going to be brushing up on my digital camcorder skills. Very cool.
Jokosher is an audio production tool whose byline sums up what they are “audio production made simple”. Now that I’m no longer globetrotting, and staying closer to home, I’m going to try and get more involved with some sound recording and editing for a friend of mine. As an avid listener to lugradio I’ve been hearing about Jokosher. More to follow on it.
This next sentence is going to come as a shock to my friends and family. I’m seriously considering how to get an iPod. I know, I know, *sigh*, but this next piece is REALLY cool.
Banshee is another mono project, and allow users natively in linux to manage and upload songs to thier ipods. In the past this could be done by using gtkPod, and it’s a great piece of software, however banshee’s polish is remarkable. If you’ve got an iPod, and use linux, take a look.

So I’ve been using the Hula mail and calendar server recently and am looking forward to some of the changes that are in the pipes. I’m ready for some of my family to start using a conrey.org email account, but I’m going to wait to the 1.0 release, and according to LUGRadio it’ll happen in August sometime. I hope to also be able to give my Grandparents a computer with Debian stable preconfigured and setup for email and web surfing at the same time. Trying to work out the details of setting all of this up however, as I’ll want to go ahead and get them a bare bones broadband package from Freese-Notis as well.

So I’ve finally gotten off my duff and attended a LUG here in Des Moines. Living in Central Iowa it seemed only appropriate that I attend the Central Iowa Linux Users Group Meeting. Interesting breadth of people. Not enough debian users however I opened my mouth (shocked I’m sure) and talked abit about the Linux Terminal Server Project that I’m working on at Westminister, and a bit about Hula. There were a few Mandrake (er.. I mean Mandriva) users, and of the laptops floating around a few were macs (drool). Yet something else that Ninzin will be pleased to know I want to get. I went with Greg and overall, was happy with the experience. I look forward to next month and maybe I won’t be so reserved.

After a short hiatus we’re back online. The transition from Mediacom Cable to Freese-Notis DSL was smooth and although the cost is a bit higher I’m happy with the customer service and assistance during setup that FN provided. Hope all continues well.
The last few years I’ve been blogging on a different tool, and I’m not to keen on migrating all that data into this format. If there was a specific article you want, I can dig it up.
