I feel extremely silly for asking this, but I don't see any way to indicate that I will attend. What am I missing?

Book Review: Inkscape 0.48 Essentials for Web Designers

theLime Re:lacking important path transformation algorithm (91 comments)

Good points.

Couple of tips for working with 'pixels' in inkscape:
I usually zoom in quite deep and add a grid (Grids tab in Document Properties); the gridlines mark pixel borders.
You can quickly toggle snap-to-grid with % (shift-5).
The Icon Preview gives you a 1:1 for work<=64x64, or you can hit '1' to jump to 100% zoom.

Book Review: Inkscape 0.48 Essentials for Web Designers

theLime Re:lacking important path transformation algorithm (91 comments)

O - "Round Corners": Inkscape has a lot of ways to achieve this, but they should be easier and more automatic, so I'll agree with you here.
X - There is a Calligraphic Pen tool in the main toolbox. The default behavior is path outline.
X - Path offsets are excellent and consistent using the Dynamic Offset tool
X - Auto-trace is in Path -> Trace Bitmap
X - Pixel Preview mode is in View -> Icon Preview

You aren't expected to be up-to-date on software you don't use, but please get the facts straight before posting :)

A Screenshot Review of KDE 4

theLime Re:This is especially interesting (274 comments)

I think you would be very, very surprised at the state of Linux pro audio (esp. Ardour.) Graphics apps (Gimp, Inkscape, Maya, etc) have been very mature for several years. Unless you need to stay with your current programs (and play Games For Windows(TM),) Linux is ready for you now.

theLime writes "I hadn't seen this mentioned on Slashdot yet, but Ardour (the excellent digital audio workstation for Linux and OSX) announced on Oct 6 that Solid State Logic is backing the project, presumably to use it in some future product. If you're not familiar with SSL, their widely used products are synonymous with high-end quality in the recording studio world. This is excellent news as it means both accellerated development for Ardour, and increased awareness/acceptance for open-source software and open formats in the pro-audio community. Congratulations are in order for long-time lead developer Paul Davis!"
