    It's probably about time I updated my blog. It may have been a year or so since my last post and I'm going to get back into the habit… promise! 

    I just returned from the annual Winter Star Party. What a week! The weather was much better than last year… much much better. There were a couple of nights when most people gave up and left, then later, the clouds would clear out, and I observed nearly all night long. It was good therapy, and of course I got to see some friends I don't get to see that often. One special friend I had hoped for couldn't make it, but once I quit pouting I had a great week. Ah, next time…

    So, what have I been up to? Mojo, that's what. Mojo is my “code name” for the new media player for the Theater Suite. I have big plans for Mojo, not all of which will be realized by the first release, but should be in place by the end of the year. The current media player for Theater Suite does just what it “has” to, which is play pre-rendered movies. The new Mojo is a combination of Garage Band and Final Cut Express and PowerPoint… but for Domes. I believe by mid year it will be a differentiator and a keystone feature of the Theater Suite! The first usable version should be available in the next maintenance release sometime this Spring… I think. Stay tuned…

    So, if your not into the “Planetarium” part of our planetarium software, what's up? Well, I have also been working with Lochness productions on a new educational feature for Seeker (which will also be in the theater suite too). Since it's Lochness, you can guess it's more content related than anything else, but there will also be some programming to go along with it. You'll just have to wait and see ;-)

    Oh yeah, we are also planning on going to SEPA… all of the above will be demonstrated there, so come and see us!

    You said that an update for SkyX would be available soon after the new year.  Will registered owners be notified?  I keep looking for it.
