A day at work

I've been suffering from technical issues with my vlog lately. Upgraded to iLife 06 and have discovered that, on a 12" Powerbook G4, it's a piece of crap. Can't do anything. I ended up creating this in QuickTime Pro, which I'm less familiar with, and which therefore took longer. Then QT took about 11 hours to convert my <5 minute video from .mov format into iPod-ready format, and in the process it dropped all the text tracks that show the times. This was Not OK.

I've resolved that problem with a great program called iSight, which will now end up in the book because it's so awesome. iSight converted to iPod-ready format in about an hour, and kept the text tracks in tact. Yay!

In addition to these problems, my moblog is temporarily incommunicado because I had to send the camera back to Nokia for a replacement. Multimedia messaging simply didn't work, for no discernable reason. I really hate it when stuff just doesn't work.
