I reformated my iBook and started from scratch. Interesting process.
I started playing with CamelBones again and in under an hour I created miniTunes.app with the help of Mac::iTunes. It's a good example of what the HOWTO's talk about at camelbones.sf.net, it uses actions, outlets, and menu items.
My iBook has cramped space, I wanted something even smaller than minimized iTunes, so there it is.
I'll share the source in a bit, I'm having routing issues that make uploading a PITA.
I love the power of a good IDE/GUI builder combined with the CPAN.
And it's pronounced minItunes.
