Hello again, friends. I apologize if I've left you "high and dry" in regards to this project, but I've been a busy guy over these last months with college, work, and the general living of life. I do still lurk here but haven't had much to say lately. It's great to see Adywan's edit released (I'm downloading it now, haha), and I'm realy looking forward to Dark Helmet's "The Dark Times."

As for me and this project, I don't know if I'll ever be in a position to take it all on myself, but let me tell you about what I'm up to. I'm a Media Production major (which is basically Radio/TV/Film, I don't know why they changed the name), and this semester I'm taking a in-depth editing class that teaches the ins and outs of Apple's multimedia suite, in particualr Final Cut Pro. This will finally give me the opportunity to learn everything I need to know about *professional* editing. The only problem is I don't have a Mac myself, though I plan to get a top-of-the-line one when I graduate, so I'll have to use the computers at school until then. I have career aspirations in media, but more in the creative department such as writing. Professional editing is a good gig which can bring in some serious money if you play your cards right, so that's definitely something I'm going to look into as alternative income. Weddings, vacations, etc, people pay good money for someone to package together these things for them on DVD. Anyway, that's where I'm coming from, and in a couple of years maybe I'll be able to hammer all these things out myself in my spare time, but for now I just really need to focus on getting in a good starting point for my career.

All that said, I was hoping I could still contribute idea wise to this project. Honestly for a while there I was burned out on Star Wars, but Adywan's project has reignited my interest in that galaxy far, far away. So I'll be around for discussion if you'll have me.
