First of all thanks for your great job. The new veirson(0.2.4 beta1) does not work with my Xubuntu 7.10, but the previous veirson(0.2.1) works fine. Following are the error message when I try to execute it under terminal mode:Traceback (most recent call last): File ./ , line 18, in from MainWindow import MainWindow File /usr/share/ubuntu-tweak/ , line 91, in [SESSION_PAGE, icons[SESSION_PAGE], _( Session Control ), Session()] File /usr/share/ubuntu-tweak/ , line 107, in __init__ box = ItemBox(_( Click the large button to change Splash screen ), (self.splash_hbox(),)) File /usr/share/ubuntu-tweak/ , line 54, in splash_hbox self.original_preview = gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_file(filename)gobject.GError: Failed to open file /usr/share/pixmaps/splash/gnome-splash.png': No such file or directory

Thank You Barbara, inspiring me to play with my art as well, have been using my cvetairity in so many areas of my life, but I love the process of artmaking, mixed media, lots of inexpensive materials to just begin, have an Art Room in my home that I used for the 8 years I was taking University Art classes, and now it is the Art Room I take my grandchildren in to just be and make a mess if needed, it is o.k. in there to experiment and express themselves. They like to muck alot. It is fun. I don't mind cleaning up after, as the room is meant to appear comfortable and relaxed.

I am glad you wrote about Twombly. He was a favorite of mine. Misunderstood early on, but a dedcaited individualist. I admire that. When I was younger, I was saddened that I could not draw a figure. I was frustrated that I could not make my brain learn what I was being taught. I devised my own way I'd listen to music, close my eyes, and in an enormous sketch boo move the pencil around to what I heard in the music. It relieved my frustration of not being able to be taught properly. I cannot wait to read your poem. [url=]jrvrdjvfsy[/url] [link=]etdmoiz[/link]

I can make a next day's lunch off that huge dinner salad? One of my late nepehw Aaron's favorite stories was how, on TWO different occasions, when I left my desk for a moment, Guinness was able to climb into my chair and eat the remainder of my Barnaby's salad. One time she even knocked the plastic container to the floor and nudged it, fork, and napkin under the foot board of my desk. I came back, went back to work, and only about an hour later thought, Hey, wasn't I eating a salad earlier?

As I was reading the story binhed photo # 5 I suddenly recalled a similar story, about someone getting into trouble at the Menil for sitting at (or on?) a table that turned out to be an exhibit. Does that make sense? Was this a story that was told to me on my visit to Houston? Or did I witness it and am now having a senior moment? Was I the one sitting on the table?!

Wonderful job, as always, my crteiave soul sister! I've always thought that just the way you dress is crteiave, and your writing certainly is. And of course I love your art in the sense most people think of it, paintings or wall decorations or other visible tactile creations. And did I mention your photography?!! You are the eclectic Leonardo da Vinci in my circle of friends! Have an inspired crteiave day.Love,Nancy

Hello again!!! I really arepeciatpd about your answer!!!But I am using XNA, we don't use this kinds of funtions: wMainWindow.plyerRemoved(), so it's hard to print activeList or skeletonList I tried but it doesn't work on the printing part Do you have any idea about that?? If you print skeletonList in console, how will you do??? [url=]pjisvd[/url] [link=]aremkc[/link]

plyaerRemoved is a function I wrote when the plyaer leaves the play area. I don't have any XNA experience unfortunately but I plan to do my next project using it, so if I come across anything to help you I'll let you know!

I have a problem to fololw Honourable Trager's reasoning here:"By contrast, the complaint in this case names the copyrighted recordings that were allegedly infringed and describes the manner in which they were infringed. Indeed, if these allegations in the complaint are proven true, under no circumstances will Schwartz not have infringed plaintiffs' copyrights.""describes the manner" -> defendant did this and/or did that; a very specific description of the manner of alleged infringement, Totally different then the descriptions of the manner in the Twombly case of course!"if these allegations[...] are proven true" -> which one the and or only the or one? Does he wanted to say that it doesn't matter and that he believes if its only the "or part" which would be making available that he already concluded that that's something which is a violation of copyrightlaw alone which gives rise to liability without having "illegal copies" in a folder at all (ripped ones from own CDs for example (or are those illegal now after all?!) "under no circumstances will Schwartz not have infringed plaintiffs' copyrights." -> How so? What about this circumstance: Q: You installed kazza on your computer? A: Yes, because I could not figure out how to play my own CDs in Windows Media Player and I was told that I could play them with that program you asked me aboutQ: You downloaded songs from other users of that network?A: No, I only had listen to songs I copied from my own CDs onto the harddrive and I was under the impression that such a use of my property is covered under fair use of the CDs.Q: But you were aware that by doing this you offered all your own songs for the world to grab from you for free! You made them available, didn't you?!A: No, I was not aware about that and councel for plaintiffs let me point to the statements of the RIAA on behalf of your clients before that hearing a while ago where the RIAA complained that users of Kazza are mostly not aware that they make available songs and/or their whole harddrive content to the world because of a confusing user interface of the programm. I had NEVER EVER the intention to make anything available and give away digital copies where I have no rights to do so in, I'm not a pirat, I'm an upright lawabiding citizen! I feel offended by your allegations. Q: Miss Swartz don't make a fuss on the stand: copyright infringement is a strict liability tort, the court does not care what your intentions were! We have proof you made those songs available so you are guilty! [ponders with his fist on the table]A: [first tears in her eyes but strong-willed] But I did not know, most people say "making available" is not an exclusive right of your clients!Q: We also have proof you distributed those songs" Here exhibit x the songs you distributed to our investigators!A: but that's not copyrightinfringement. First they were expressly authorised by plaintiffs to recieve those songs and secondly I did not uplaod any of my fair use copies of my own CDs to anybody else! My technology expert told me that Media Sentry was the only one ever able to get any of the songs due to the fact that they use special software with which only they could "see" the files on my Harddrive. No member of the public could see MY own files and never did get anything from me so!--So Judge Trager what now?No prove of giving copies to the public, no download of illegal copies from others. Only the she made available to some Plaintiffs authorized guys with software that could reach places you and I never ever could and those guys initiated comands to Mrs Swartz harddrive that gave out the copies to them without her intention to do so, her approval or even her knowledge!Still no circumstances where there was no infringements of plaintiffs rights by Mrs. Swartz?!Just because it is these days common public knowledge that p2p software is not insignificantly used to infringe copyrights, that fact does not make HER guilty automaticly. If your Honour came already to the conclusions that no matter what happened she is liable before discovery had even started I guess Its fair to accuse you of being biased already pro plaintiffs and their making available argument.So could you please explain your statement by making clear which specific allegations from plaintiffs would that be and why she is because of them already "guilty" of copyright infringement in your honours opinion even before discovery had even begun? Such a clarification on your part might help to obliterate the impression that your Honor is biased towards the palintiffs in all those "RIAA vs. People"- cases your Honor expressly wished to rule about yourself with Judge Levy instead of have all those cases randomly assigned to other judges too.Thank you your Honourable Judge Trager.
