If you have prepared regions in a video which you wish to output as individual files Sony Vegas Pro has a simple script called “Batch Render” that will do the dirty work for you. However it won’t stretch to fill video for you and if this is a requirement then you need to change the […]
I moved to the kitchen but I still could not play this video. He is not Being There, dammit.
My Wife’s diary (Click to see full size):- We are considering how to use the extra day, or have we lost a day?
Watch this video. Credit is not given to the author or the main part and that’s characteristic of the artist who made the film. He is in it for himself, not money, not fame. It looks like the west coast of Ireland, perhaps the Cliffs of Moher. He clearly makes the most of a stunning […]
I came across the article Countries That Don’t Use The Metric System and found many of the comments entertaining, this is one of my favourites: I didn’t realise the metric system was so wide spread, once English is spoken in the same amount of countries we Brits can claim one-all with the French.
Did you know Adobe pre-loads itself each time you start your PC with the default installation? This presumably so when you call upon it the results appear fast, make them look good. In the mean time other applications fighting for memory are robbed of this resource. If you are not a heavy user of the […]
One of my facebook contacts, Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (which appears to be winning every award imagineable) unsurprisingly hit facebook’s maximum friend limit. To continue she must move to a fan page where there is no limit, but this means losing the comments, photos and videos and they cannot […]
In my office I have three computers, all running Windows 7, all three under a year old. Two have speaker systems connected, the other is a laptop. They all suffer from fluctuating volume and it’s driving me nuts. Every week or so I spend a few hours researching other peoples experience. It seems I am […]
Time for a new TV in the bedroom. While I am not an inbetweeners fan, strictly come dancing and lady gaga are both welcome to fall asleep to (one through bordom, the other through anticipation). I remembered a friend saying I should try Play.com so I ventured to their TV pages. With over 500 TV’s […]
This morning my phone rang. “Hello, Martyn speaking” I said in my posh phone answering voice. After a seconds silence I hear a click and a thick accent begins to speak, what it said at first I am unsure but it sounded like “Hello, are you home right now?” It was definetly a question. “What?” […]
What’s changed at the BBC News site? There must be something because I spend more time at Sky or the papers instead now. On the rare occasions I do visit something about the site irritates me. As I read an article today something kept distracting me, it happened so fast it was over before I […]
I got stuck today so grabbed my thesaurus (the old fashioned version with words printed on paper) and started digging around for a few alternatives. I found what I needed, only I don’t think many people would have heard of it so I performed a blog search to see how common it was. The word […]
Are you still surprised when you discover a friend on a new social network? The number of useful social media sites is growing. Specialist sites for our interests help keep us focused as opposed to facebook and twitter. You have to be specific to be terrific, as my mentor used to say. Facebook and Twitter […]
