Mount Shasta

by Greg : We headed out on our trip on the first of May. Well, to be real, we spent most of the first swapping things between our storage unit and our RV... The trip begins before the first mile ticks off the odometer.. We spent several weeks planning, and the first of May, first day of our trip, we spent packing at the storage unit, provisioning up at Costco, and rounding out or 'wine cellar'.continued...

The bailout - why you should say no.
@ Features     Sep 21 2008 - 15:01 PST
by Greg : In case you've been in a cave for the last year, lots of large corporate banks are on shaky ground after years of making exremely risky loans/investments and reaping huge profits in the process. Now the people who helped create this huge mess tell us if we just give them one trillion dollars (that's $10,000 per US household) they'll make it all go away, oh and they won't be answering to congress or the courts on how they decide to spend it. To read more about why you should be very angry about this bailout and calling your senators to demand they block and vote against the bill see these links..

Editing Video from SD Video Cameras
@ Features     Sep 14 2008 - 12:51 PST
by Greg : A month or so ago I got a Panasonic SDR-SW20 Video camera that records onto high-density SD. It is a handy small camera that's waterproof (and dustproof!), and fits into a pocket. It records in a format that's difficult to use in most editing programs (.MOV) so after shooting a bunch of video of Burning man I had to write my own converter with FFMPEG to get the video into Windows Movie Maker. If you have the same problem get a copy of ruby and ffmpeg for your windows box and use my script to import it.

NOTE: I just updated the script with /working/ encoder options. The old options would cause output to stop halfway through the video!
