music: The Beatles - The White Album (Disc 2) - Cry Baby Cry

things i want to make:

1. a quicksilver plugin (prolly using PyObjC) to post to LJ (using xml-rpc)
-- ideally in quicksilver one would make an LJ post by typing text straight into quicksilver, hitting tab, typing "lj" and pressing enter. title of entry on first line, rest of entry on the rest (or just use a title: tag?) so control+space, dot, type title, option + enter, type entry, tab, lj, enter. speedy.

2. a stripped down ruby blogging platform with multiple types of posts -- photo, scrap, long entry
accepts LJ post format, blogger post format, etc. so LJ clients still work (see where i'm going here?)
different types of entries look different -- templates, customizable
good picture handling with flickr syncage
intelligent lj syncage -- when synced to LJ, link to LJ for comments
uses same mysql layout as wordpress -- drop in replacement. no hassle.
forget pings/trackbacks/etc.

also interested in, more in the future, porting the gui of psyncx to work with proper rsync. but i don't know enough to do that yet.

hey this is kind of a shot in the dark, but would you have time to help me code an annotation program? I made a bunch of screenshots and started to code it with a random dude on craigslist but got swamped with other work.

i would have no idea where to even start. i don't know anything at all about anything to do with GUIs, no matter what platform. I also don't know any C or C++ or ObjC or C# and am only now learning Java.

all my programming experience is in PHP, with Scheme from last semester and some Ruby on my own, and now Java in CS61B. All the languages i know are really scripting languages that probably wouldn't be any good for something like that.

ohh okay. yeah, I took all the classes in the 61 series, but basically have no idea how to apporach GUI programming. originally, we were coding this in Java Scheme, but it turned out to be a real headache.
