First Week

Well, it turns out the baby loves Bach (played by Glen Gould, of course). We’re into the second part of Book I ofThe
Well Tempered Clavier
. Maybe I can get my butt away from the computer and get some practice in so I can play some tunes for her myself.
In other news, I tried to get Quicktime working using a variation of the
Flash Satay method. I can get away with the Flash Satay method for Flash, but there
are weaknesses in the Quicktime method. The movies on this page load another movie in place of the one you see first. Once that movie loads and plays
through it loads the original movie and completes the loop. This is impossible with the Quicktime Satay method. One may extend the

; but, that seems like a lot of trouble. I just found another page with great links I’m about to explore; maybe I’ll find the answer there.

GBC Nutcracker Program Finished!

Whew! So, I’m catching up. I’ve finally finished major work on the GBC Program. Though it
was killing me, I am happy that I’ve learned a lot more about Quark. It’s clunky and has
some really odd font behavior; still, I think I’ll add it to the list of software I like.
I realize I’ve been almost completely incommunicado lately, I will be able to be more
responsive until the baby’s arrival or The Nutcracker whichever comes first.

Heavy production week.

Things are pretty hectic around here. I’m in the middle of working on music and the program for The Nutcracker.
Susan’s got two new products, one of which is becoming my nemesis. The Coffee Shop is getting more and more orders while
Braxton and Hicks are keeping Tammy occupied. She is very ready for the baby!
I mention this because I’m starting to get backed up on returning some messages: sorry. The deadline for the program has
thankfully been pushed to Friday and I hope to be able to return to the land of the living by then. Because I’m behind the
computer, email is the best way to get in touch with me as I’ll be able to answer questions when I get a break. Hope everyone
is doing well!
