No problem!  I hope everyone enjoyed it.  I realize it was quite a
'whirlwind' of a talk.  There's just so much to cover, and so many cool
things Gimp can do!

I highly encourage people to check out the various books on Gimp that
are out there.  As I mentioned during my talk, one is available for free
online now, at:

I only drove to Rohnert Park. ;^)  But yeah, no problem.  I enjoyed it.
I wish I could get out to NBLUG more often!  As much as I tease Eric,
you guys really do have a great LUG!

And MAN, you get to your presentations quickly, I tell you what! ;^)

Great!  That's exactly what I wanted.  I know it's quite a hard tool to get
started with.  (Nothing compared to XFIG or Blender, though ;) )

I wanted to make it look a bit less daunting, while at the same time give
people an idea of the countless cool things it can do for them, so they'll
be more likely to go "Hrm, I bet I can do that with Gimp" when they need to
tweak a picture or make a drawing. ;)

Heheh - Just remember, it's HOT and FLAT out here. :^(

I guess I'll see some of you Thursday for my talk at SSU, too!
Don't worry, I've got slides for that one. ;)
