Jon A. Cruz: Inkscape should NOT “support CMYK”!

December 18th, 2009 by heathenx

Very interesting post by Jon Cruz. I get a little confused by CMYK since I usually make screen images. Jon does a great job of putting things in perspective.

Episode 101 is up. Sorry for the distorted sound in this episode. I had forgotten to turn down my volume level when I was recording. πŸ™

Inkscape 0.47 Package for Ubuntu 9.10

November 25th, 2009 by heathenx

For those who cannot wait until the official release of Inkscape 0.47 lands into the Ubuntu 9.10 repositories (if it ever does), you can grab my package (LOL! Did I just write grab my package?…tehehe). It’s not a proper package since I built it with checkinstall but it works. Plus, it will save you time compiling it yourself. πŸ˜‰

Torrent: Episode 001-100

November 24th, 2009 by heathenx

We received an email this morning from jEsuSdA (JesΓΊs David Navarro) regarding a torrent that he has made. The torrent includes episodes 001 through 100. If this interests you then you can grab the torrent here (Google translated to English). Even though the description reads 85 it’s my understanding that all 100 are there. I didn’t know about jEsuSdA’s site until now and found that there are about ten other downloads that I found interesting too. He has some good stuff there. Check it out.

Thank-you, jEsuSdA. πŸ™‚

Episode 100 – Create a Vitamin Bottle

November 15th, 2009 by heathenx

It’s finally done. Episode 100 has been published. This is the longest running and our largest file size screencast to date. So grab yourself a beverage while it’s downloading and prepare to hunker down for a bit. It’s an hour long. 😐

Episode 099 is now available. Looks like I was able to get a screencast out in October after all thanks to Ubuntu Karmic Koala.

Episode 098 is now up. This episode demonstrates a few simple text treatments that you might find valuable in your next Inkscape design project.

Not able to screencast :(

October 12th, 2009 by heathenx

Hey peoples,

It seems that I have broken some packages on my Ubuntu 9.04 system. Not sure if it’s RecordMyDesktop (which I have never had problems with in the past) or a few suspicious encoders that I installed from PPA a few weeks ago. Place your bets. Unfortunately it isn’t something I’m going to tear into an try to fix this close to the release of Ubuntu 9.10. That’s just a couple of weeks around the corner. I plan to format my system for that release since I usually end up installing a bunch of experimental thingies between releases anyway. I like a clean system. πŸ˜‰

I had episode 098 lined up and screencasted but it encoded so horribly that it’s unwatchable. Syncing issues, dropped frames…nasty. Unfortunately this post serves as an announcement that I won’t have any screencasts this month, at least not by me. So hopefully everything with Ubuntu 9.10 will be alright and I’ll be back in business.

See you then. πŸ™‚
