I started Slidehome project over the summer out of frustration with the death of Slidescreen. I am a high school teacher and am also working on my Masters in IT. Once the school year started, I quickly ran out of free time and Slidehome fell by the wayside. I do hope/intend to pick up where I left off after the school year, but that is many months from now.
I made some very basic progress and all the code that is completed is available. If somebody wants to take over the project, I will would not mind giving over the project (administration over the google code/github/forums/blogger site)as long as it remains free and open-source.
