I'm new here. I found your site linked off Imagination's imagination.sourceforge..org
(Linux DVD slide creator program) page.
Bit of my background. Single guy, I work as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). I have played with computers since the mid-80s. I started out with the Tandy Color Computer (CoCo) running OS-9, a Unix-like
operating system for the CoCo. I did some programming and graphical working with it. When Tandy orphaned the CoCo, I found Linux. I put together my first Linux computer (second-hand 386 with a whopping 16 MB) running Slackware is Sept 1995. From Slackware I moved to Red Hat, then Debian and now run Kubuntu. I have never owned a Windows machine.
I use Linux for all my computing uses, from finance (GnuCash) to LibreOffice to genealogy (Gramps), to name a few. I'm a hacker in the original, *good* sense of the word.
I loved the playing with Gimp, though I still consider myself a newbie. I do a little programming, mostly C with a little shell script and Perl tossed in. I am learning Python.
I love photography. I used to do black and white film. I developed and printed my own film. Now I have a digital camera, which I take everywhere with me "just in case". :-) I use Gimp for my photo-editing. I do wish it could do 24-bit color depth.
Recently, I started getting into video editing. I have played with Kino and Kdenlive so far. Each have their quirks and bugs. I have not decided which I like better. I want to experiment with animation. My brother and I did a few animated films with an old 8mm film movie camera when we were teenagers. It was a lot of fun! I want to try it again now that a digital studio is available for the average person.
In the non-computer artistic world, I like making quilts (by hand not with a sewing machine) and knitting (mostly socks and Fair Isle). I can't draw a straight line to save my life. :-)
Guess that sums it up without getting too long-winded. :-) I have lots of questions. :-) And I am happy to help answer any that I am able. :-)
