Done a little early(I recorded most of it in the early afternoon, though I had to wait for the junior events to conclude in Quebec and getting information about the men’s competition in Taipei was a huge pain) so I could have the Olympics closing ceremony on now. Or at least as much of it as NBC deigns to show. (Grrrr.) August 6-12, 2012
And I don’t start working now for two more weeks, but this weekend(and today) was so crazy I wondered how I was to get this vidoe completed. At least it saved to a usable format immediately for the first time in months! Though the ISU claimed copyright. They haven’t blocked it anywhere, but there may be advertisements.
I’m finally finishing at a decent hour again! Though it helped that most of the NHK Trophy was over by the time Saturday morning was. Of course there was a bit of worry when NHK went blocking most of the ladies’ short, but they left more than enough for me to work with.
I actually had a doctor’s appointment yesterday, which meant I didn’t finish the video until very late at night. In fact, I haven’t even done the annotations yet; that should be done after I post this. ETA: Annotations done.
It seems this is continually thinking up ways to plague me; this week after I’d labored a record ten hours on it, the video of course refused to save normally, and this time the sound merely didn’t get garbled; it outright dropped a couple of times! And coming up this week is the first regional results(I originally included a couple short program results this week, but there simply wasn’t room for them). I was way too tired to post this last night, so posting it now instead:
One would think that after a hectic weekend of continually watching the Quebec Summer Skate because the Thornhill stream kept having problems, and a video chock full of too many headlines where I nonetheless couldn’t resist the golden opportunity to yell “MAY DAY! MAY DAY!”, it would have been events enough. And when the video wouldn’t save at first, that should have definitely been enough. But then when I saved it to a huge-ass DV-AVI file and attempted to convert a smaller one, it wouldn’t convert. I finally sweated out the ETA on the iPodME steadily going in the wrong direction, freeing up computer memory in a desperate attempt to get it finished before it stalled, and finally had a file YouTube would take. At least it didn’t get blocked anywhere(it’s embarrassing to report on All That Skate without any footage of Yu-Na, but whatever keeps you viewable), but I think the sound problems must be in the DV-AVI creation, and I ended up spending another half hour adding annotations where information had gotten too garbled, panicking when I thought they hadn’t saved, and finally realized I needed to click on the Publish button. So here it is, and I am going to bed.
