Ah, I meant Doctor Who season 31 (or the 5th season of the newest
Doctor Who's or the first season of the 11th Doctor). It's hard
talking to a lot of people who don't know about Doctor Who and telling
them there are 31 seasons spread over the last fourty years or
so...it's easier just to talk about the most current ones.. On that
note though I haven't really seen anything past the most recent five
seasons; I was too young to really watch/remember the otehrs.

I may need to talk to you then about video editing on cinelerra...
I've used Adobe for work-related videos (state agency) and it's nice,
but certainly limited! Cinelerra though I've had a lot of problems
trying to bring in video to edit.
