I went to sourceforge -- but it proved very difficult to work with their cvs stuff. At least, at the time. I do have Kura under cvs now, and it's a simple matter of opening a port in my firewall and creating an account to give people access to the source. I've started porting Kura to Qt 3.x, only to notice that there isn't a gratis version of Qt 3.x for Windows yet, so I'm dithering a bit right now, and working on a real interlinear editor, instead of the one I had.

GUI programming with Python and Qt -- online available at http:://, and it should be orderable from Fatbrain or Borders, and soon Amazon. It gets back from the printer the fifteenth.

Fantasy, absolutely. Based on the adventures of Murxao in the temple of Qunayir (both can be found on my website). I'm now at 22.000 words, and I've already got fights, gods and a love interest :-). And lots of language. An expanded account of the trouble Murxao has learning Classical Charyan from someone who doesn't even know classical and Denden are different languages. Boudewijn Rempt |
