Back around for now

Hey, just dropping a line to mention that I just finished up my bachelor's degree in college. (Also received Summa Cum Laude and Departmental Honors.) Now that I have finished up this particular work I will have quite a bit more time to work on some projects that have been of interest to both myself and to SX as well. At the same time though, I will be looking into employment (I won't go into any further detail as I feel it isn't necessary to go into detail with many aspects of my life as to be quite honest, it's rather boring) so I won't be doing the whole 24/7 availability deal.

With this in mind, I have come up with a bit of a very rough basic idea for one of the main parts of how OFACE would run. In addition to this though, as I have decided to use C++ there is a matter of developing a GUI for it as well. The honest to god's reality is that should I develop this using modern Visual Studio releases, this forces me to use the .NET framework and I do not wish to have such a requirement on that project. I looked into GTK but many accounts have stated that it is not a fun experience to work with. After much consideration, I made the decision to look into Qt for the GUI and GCC 4.8.0 so that I can take advantage of the newer C++ capabilities as some of the boost libraries they have included are pretty good. I will start messing with Qt a bit shortly and looking at if it would be the best solution for this.
