Chromakeyed transparent windows?

I have found programs that allow you to apply partial transparency to a window (in windows), but I'm looking for something a little different: chroma keyed transparency, like what is used in visual effects or on the weather report. [more inside]

Compulsory PHP instruction

I've received a $1000 grant that I can use to learn PHP, in order to eventually write an education-specific application. I could attend a programming boot camp this Summer, take an online course, or blow it all on books and software. Of course, I have a bunch of php/mysql books already. Has anyone gone to one of those programming boot camps, and was it worth it?

creating simple biofeedback software

I'm trying to create a simple biofeedback program that will display a real-time graph of the user's heart rate. But instead of using actual pulse monitor hardware as the input the user would just take their pulse with one hand and simultaneously press enter with the other hand each time they feel a pulse. Then I would like this data to be displayed in beats per minute on the Y-axis. This seems like a very simple program. The problem is I'm really not sure where to start and know very little about programming. The closest I've come to programming is using Excell and messing around in Flash. Does anyone know if there are easy to use programming tools that would enable me to create a program like the one I've described or if there are already existent programs similar to this? Thanks alot.

OO programming in Autocad?

I have developed an application in AutoLISP which I would like to re-write in an OO language. AutoCAD seems to natively support VB but I don't think I want to go there. I am starting to learn C# and Python, and like both. How easy is it to link Autocad and C# or Python (or Ruby, etc.)? I am aware of PyCad but not sure I understand how to get it to work, plus it requires Autocad 2000 which is like requiring windows 95. In short, I am quite the newbie at this and would appreciate a simple but thorough explanation of how to use a modern programming language in Autocad.

Can FileMaker have hooks into MySQL?
