I've been away for a while. I've been away from the Net for a while at that.

School is back in session and dealing with the sheer volume of work has been a task in and of itself. However, the weekend provided me with time for reflection and time to relax.

To begin my shock of coming back on to the Net after a few days, I am very happy to hear that Qt is now available under the GPL. While I am normally a GNOME user, I am currently testing out KDE under Debian. I will be happy to finally get KDE from "Official" sources. Ivan has done a wonderful job of keeping builds up to date.

Well, as a revisit to the Linux in Schools article a few days back, I have joined the SEUL/edu mailing list and have been discussing the possibility of starting a full blown student management/scheduling/attendace suite.

Most of my X programming has been done via GTK+/GNOME. With the size of this new project encompassing an entire school district, it will need cross-platform compatibility. This alone will complicate things alot. I have been looking, now that Qt is GPL, at building the application with it.

I am very impressed with the new KDE. That just shows how impressed that I am. It's quick. It's still a little quirky, but hey, it's a beta. It's very good for a beta.

Well, back to work.
