hehe. sure, we talked in between concerts about some python stuff 
related to OSC and your software. I did not remember your name.

mm... c++... Minaudicle is ok butif not because of the syntax coloring 
I would prefer to use any normal editor.

did you download all the files from the svn server? there is a python 
module called tools.py that needs to be next to the slicer.py. On top of 
that you need the usual pygame, pyopengl, and mirra itself. I also have 
a py2exe package for windows, but it is not available there, too big.
