remember graphical application don't mean 'real' ;-)

i'm working on a 24x7 satellite ingest/processing/delivery system.  over the
last year i've built a configurable file system event-driven processing
framework and an instant linux clustering toolset.  in otherwords, solve a
problem and the tools will either fallout in the process or you'll need to
write them yourself.  either way you're set.

cheers.
