Biting off more than one can chew

My Fellow Inmates,

Two nights ago I found myself, at 1am in the morning, beating my head against the keyboard. You see the new video turned out well, real well, and anyone that knows me well knows that the standards I hold for myself are much higher than those I require of others...

So needless to say I can't wait to post this one.

Mostly because I want to be done with it.

You see I set myself a lofty goal of a lengthy vid upon an outdated system, on outdated software, running in a windows vista enviroment.

The levels of pain I have brought to others pale in comparison to the agony wroght upon me by my masters at Microsoft.

And we are playing with no safeword.

So yes, it is complete, and way too large. My current task is trimming the fat to make it a bit smaller.

This is having two benificial effects.

First, and foremost, by condencing the vid I find it's only getting stronger. The danger of attempting long pieces is that the later portions will slow down breaking the flow an causing anticlimactic yawn moments in what should be a hot peice...

The second benifit is in the realization that this peice of shit computer needs to sail from the highest balcony i can find...

All in good time.

This piece shall be posted by this weekend, that's my plan. As long as I don't kick in my monitor before then...

So last night I finished the vid, and started it publishing... I got it just under my 500 Meg limit, it quoted me that it would take a few hours to process. So I went to bed... I woke up this morning to find out it failed at 95% complete...


Life's a bitch sometimes

the process of living is learning how to roll with the punches.

With That, Visiting Time Is Over. What Ever You Do Don't Scream Too Loud As Others Are Trying To Sleep.
