I had been trying to burn dvds with my desktop but it just didn't do a good job. Everything came out looking like crap. I thought about buying a new computer but really can't afford it right now. When I was at the store getting my wife a digital camera, I saw the dvdirect. It works as a stand-alone unit and can handle a good number of formats-- so I thought I would try it out. Last night I burned a little over 3 hours of video. It came out very nice.
I can't remember if I ever posted this link-- but here it is:
Free On-Line Graph Paper
All different kinds of graph paper, ready to be downloaded and printed. Nice if you just want a couple sheets-- also some more hard to find patterns. There are also a couple graph paper generators so you can make your own custom graph paper. How much more geeky can you get?
I just downloaded 4 or 5 avi files but when I try to play them all I get is the audio-- not the video. What would do that? Is it something with the file or am I doing something wrong. I've tried to play them with realplayer, winamp and ms media player.
Interesting video storage site I was checking out last night-- http://www.kvikmynd.is/
It is hosted in iceland-- so I can't read any of the text-- and many of the videos are not in english. But lots are. Many of them it doesn't matter-- you don't need the dialogue to get what is going on. There are music videos, commercials, sports clips, all kinds of stuff. Some I've seen all over, some I've never seen. Many are european commercials. May be NSFW for many of you. There are some really amazing soccer clips.
On an interesting note-- they have a clip of Keifer Sutherland on the David Letterman show-- being shown on a news program because he talks about a visit to iceland. I never thought about that, but it is interesting to me, that they take note of what he has to say about iceland on an American program.
