Video Trials

I'm trying to make Video Blogs. So far, it's not all that great, but I'm working on it. I'm using the video capture feature on my iPAQ Pocket PC. It's not the best quality. By far. I'm also having to use Microsoft Movie Maker to put the pieces together. I haven't learned Kino in Linux yet. I already know Movie Maker. I'll work on it.

Here we go:

Australian Cattle Dog. That's what they're called. Queensland Blue Heeler is the fancy yuppy name. ACD. That's what they really are. If you've looked on my Flickr page, you've probably seen pictures of Chili. If not, shame on you.
Chili dog is a decendant of the Norse myth, Loki, a mythical being of mischief. At the very least, she's decended from his dogs. She's a handful, but an incredible joy.

Here's a video of another ACD. Enjoy:

Bossman Project

Not much has happened since my latest 'update' type post. Well, a few medical issues are getting taken care of, but other than that, no new issues. House hasn't sold yet - it's only been on the market for two weeks. I guess that's good, since we haven't found a house to move into yet. I'd be fine with a doublewide in Bithlo, but I think Nancy wants something a bit more 'comfortable'.

I've thought about expanding my Bossman Project. Besides giving away Ubuntu Linux based computers, I could actually have a business where I install Ubuntu on people's computer they thought were too outdated. I could help them have machines that are still quite capable or working, and working well. I'm not sure the details, but I could charge for installation, and any hardware improvements made; memory, larger and faster hard drive, etc. It would have to be a much more competative installation price than Windows. And, I could provide support. Just a thought.

Back to studying.

Digital Rights

The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has a website specific to the legal issues affecting Bloggers - like me. I don't have any cases filed against me. Not yet at least. But, I do think other bloggers need to be aware of legal issues regarding Blogging. Oh, and I highly hope you'll choose to support Digital Freedom. In the future, it might be the only place liberty is left.

Also, I hope you'll take the time to listen to at least some of Cory Doctorow's speech:

Online Storage

I'm glad to see things like MediaMax and Xdrive. Things like this give the average user ways to save or backup their files. It even gives small business tools to store information, and with what appears a decent level of security. If you have an AOL or AIM screenname, you can use that for your Xdrive signin.

I know; You don't want to bother with it right now. You'll do it later. You just want to finish reading my blog, then surf to whatever next page you're going. So......

Don't do that! Setup your accounts right NOW! At the very least, set up with just one.
