    Default You know it's winter when...

    ...you wake up and its dark, you sniff your way to the train, then leave work when it's dark. I did, however, have the honour of sitting opposite the most beautiful woman I've seen in a while.

    And in a desperate attempt to make this video editing related, how many of you have ended up with a duff DV tape. I used a "scrath tape" I'd used to pratice recording a few times the other day and it's now kapput - just incorrupt data each time I record and play back. I panicked at first thinking it was my camcorder. Tried another tape and it was fine. Wierd.

    Yeah, DV tapes seem to be one of the least reliable media I've ever come across. I've seen dodgy tapes in various different camcorders.

    Bah.

    Give it a few years, then we'll be using recordable blu-ray DVDs to record DV quality footage on

    I think in the future we will record images directly to our brain through true-3D, ultra-high-resolution, visual receptors and stereo, positional audio capture devices, then playing them back on demand in realtime....oh wait.....

    I tried plugging a firewire cable into my ear to record the fact that the voices in my head were telling me to burn things.
