  The docs are not nearly as useful as they could. There is very
  thorough coverage of every feature which is two years old, but
  in a dry reference format. There is one tutorial (on using the
  beat calculator) which is very helpful, but it is unlikely anyone'll
  find it buried in the docs.

  I'd like to organize an effort to update and improve the docs,
  if anyone wants to help, contact me.

  Thanks for the kind words, guys.

  drill'n'bass eh?

  Paul, you're in brooklyn? You should check out
  "Share" a little weekly
  event I host in manhattan. Share is an open jam
  for video artists, laptop musicians and digital dj's.

  Purple? I always thought it was blue :) I'm quite
  fond of the bold color scheme, grey and "chromed" gui's
  never quite pleased me.

  the default.rc file will customize colors for the text-based
  skins, but the graphical turntable skins are pixmap-based and
  the colors are fixed.
