for video editing on linux there is kino which is simllar to windoze movie maker , and blender which i think is the best . there is also cinerella , but it promsied more then it can deliver .

kino i would think is the best place to start .

only 2 of the comps have firewire for video tranferre not sure what ones that is .

Crossed wires on my part tonight. I was in the Action room at 7pm but thinking I was the only one there had left and gone home by the time the meeting started in the old office at 8pm.

I changed this meeting to 8pm, what do you mean, it should have started at 7 in action room where it is booked?
I was at Forest from 16:00, and the hall and all around were busy because the hall was booked for theatre talk to James....

I sent apologies, but they were with Graeme!

The meeting time was changed to 7pm, but I think there have been some crossed wires. On all the posters that say 'new meeting times!' the Action wg still says 4pm. I don't know where 8pm came from.

Is 7pm still fine, or is 8pm to be the regular thing?
