    Default Waiting for your video project to render

    Things to do whilst waiting for your latest video project to render:

    - Bite your fingernails
    - Pick your nose
    - Pick someone else's nose
    - Cry
    - Rock back and forth, dribbling
    - Hit the computer screen, shouting "oh for the love of all that is good and true, PLEASE COME ON!!!"
    - Learn Russian
    - Walk from Scunthorpe to Edinburgh
    - Give birth
    - Cut the grass with a pair of chopsticks
    - Emigrate to Spain, then change your mind
    - Think about that fade effect that you forgot to check
    - Read The Bible
    - Write a version of The Bible yourself, making sure that all the words are written backwards (except those starting with a vowel)
    - Alphabetise your hair
    - Write, record and produce an experimental Bhangra album
    - Make a list of things to do whilst waiting for your latest video project to render

    I have Pinnacle Liquid Edition and also have no idea what 'wait for your video to render' means either.

    I started rendering mine on Friday evening. Since then, I have:

    - almost completed Christmas shopping in Milton Keynes
    - extracted the bloody radio from my wife's car to get the serial number so I can get the code so I can get it working again after the battery died (no-one told me you had to put distilled water in them - I thought that was a thing of the prehistoric past...) If you have never tried extracting a car radio with the bent coat hangers you can get from Halford's, there is a form of excruciating torture you have missed
    - replaced near side brake light on both her car and mine. Uncanny how they both went at the same time. Deeply unnerving.
    - cleared the lawn of dog poo and leaves and mowed it
    - cleared almost all the drive of leaves
    - washed and ironed the children's school shirts
    - cooked tea three times
    - put up all the bloody stupid stupid bloody Christmas lights
    - provided technical support to my son/his PC
    - done the zillion and one other things that are required of today's father/husband/dogsbody

    and I still have no idea whether it's finished rendering or not. I just haven't been able to get back to it. Tonight? Hah! I should be so lucky.

    Oh ye who are unmarried and childless, heed the plight of one who is neaither and learn...
    Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, Ulead VS6, WXP Pro, Core 2 Duo, 2GB, 2 x 250GB SATA3 drives, 2 x 250GB USB 2 external drive, DVD writer, GeForce 7300 GS 256MB

    The biggest fool can ask questions that the wisest man cannot answer...

    I think we can safely assume it has now crashed.
