I have done a little video to wish you all a Very Happy New Year. I did find some Auld Lang Syne music but not only wouldn’t it load into the video editor. It set Bling or Blong or Bonk or something as my default browser. I will run Windows castle or fortress and hope it picks it up. If not I need a good IT man, silly me. Fortunately the sun has just popped out so I’m happier than I was half an hour ago. I’m half back to Chrome. All the windows on the camper are open and a gentle breeze is doing it’s best to dry everything out.
I found a version of Amazing Grace that loads perfectly from Free Stock Music. It may have precious little to do with New Year but it is a grand tune and beggars can’t be choosers. The video is still a little nauseating. I must stop moving the camera around. Just because I have a pan and tilt head it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to use it. Now I must remember to put contrast and sharpness back on the 5D II or all my stills will be really flat.
This year I decided to make all my images free. It’s not that big a sacrifice as I hardly sell any. I get YouTube and Blogger free. I also use Blender which is free and would like to learn to use Lightworks which is almost free. I will also supply High resolution images free to anyone with a good excuse for wanting them.
As from tonight I’m having January off the campanology. It will be an alcohol free month. I’ve already tidied up my Desktop. It gets in a hell of a mess as I save bit’s of projects and important downloads there. It gets into a self defeating chaos.
I don’t usually accept award badges but I’m really proud of this one. I did not have to fill in a series of questions….grandma’s shoe size, what is your greatest regret, willy size or any of that nonsense. As to the latter the water in the burn is not only cold but deep. I did have to turn up in a virtual pub taproom in Sheffield in my best bib and tucker. The Pickled Frog. Thank you very much MR PUDDING, much appreciated and after only two goes I got it displayed. For any numpties out there. There is now a Gadget in Blogger that allows one to drag and drop images into the side bar. I used to go HTML and pop in the URL of the image, this arseing about is a thing of the past. I know I only managed a category win. The last similar award I received was from JOHN but he stopped doing them years ago. I suspect he was dredging the barrel when I got one.
Where ever you are and whatever you wish to achieve in 2014 then the very best of luck.
Happy New Year.
