Into The Woods

So good. There's stuff I wouldn't have imagined just from listening to the soundtrack. And lots of pretty moving sets. And some weird stuff that I haven't figured out yet (like the red riding hood "walking" in the same place. Might be a camera trick, I dunno, but it looks impossible.)

And yes, will be saving a copy to DVD, if I can manage it. That's 2:30 minutes of time though, and possibly an equal amount for editing, although that can wait. It'll also mean I'll need to find at least... (150/10)*1.5 GB of space (currently, it looks like 1.5 GB per 10 minutes, when converting .vob to .dv for editing - although I don't know if it's really safe to do so, since it looks audio and video de-syncs itself when I convert using ffmpegX? WTF? I dunno....)? So approx... 30 GB of free space + 20 GB of additional working area, should be good. Only have around 10 GB free right now, though. ::sighs:: shall have to burn off more anime and work on an alternate hard drive.

It's 1:40, and we still haven't left for NJ yet. Stuff has been loaded onto my computer to watch on the way there - two anime movies... Detective Conan Movie 8 for my sister, 'cause I watched it without her, and I think I want to see Kaido Kid again. And Porco Rosso, an old 300 MB copy. Quality doesn't look to be too unbearable, so... we'll see. I need a better copy at some point, or the DVD. Can wait though.

Also, need to split watching friends pages to one page with people who update 1+ times a day, and people who update rarely, or have posts that just seem unspastic/or something, so I miss commenting them.

Still...need to get a paid account and fix up my layouts.

To do:
-New S2 based layout, working off the code used to make Xella's layout, 'cause I made it flexible enough that I should be able to alter it to fit mine without too many problems.

-Applescript FileServ script - 80% complete, currently in the debug stage.

-Figuring out what's wrong with my DVD->DV conversion process and why the video falls out of sync with the audio. FARQING HELL. Need more hard drive space.

-Studying. Everyone else has winter break work, I should do something to. Like japanese.

-Need to e-mail my adviser and see if he found my sheet that has the credits that I get from highschool.

You know, the nice thing about spam is, now and days, I no longer get breast enhancement ads... only penis ones. At least they know I'm a guy now. I think . . . . .
