    Maccorin allways giveing me shit
    I planned on starting the basic app gui and some code i wasn't planing on useing flash i meant SVG (Duhhh)
    First off i don't know how to use SDL SVG i think is better it is only for some basic animations like a spinning globe and Svg animation is on inkscapes todo list.
    So there for i will wait.
    And just get what i can do done for now.
    Hows that smarty pants if your up for it you can help.
    Or are you scared it is for the linux useing kiddies.

    I also look at my old list of links too.

    You could ask for help from other sites, This would make a great post for /.
