More Progress

Today I:

- Found an app that unpacks .tivo files

- Came up with a clever way to use AVISynth to edit out the commercials -- only to discover the program unpacks the .tivo to a .mpg and AVISynth (as the name implies) uses .avis.

- Figured out that with Virtual Dub, I can work around that problem.

- Found out how to use Virtual Dub to edit out commericals and save to a smaller .avi. Still not as small as I would like (files are still about twice the size as what some people are managing), but it's a good deal smaller than what comes off the Tivo.

All of this will allow progress on the Great "Get Junk Off The Media Server" project. I am pleased.

In other news, I uninstalled and reinstalled VS.Net in the hopes that it would solve my problems with running .aspx script on my local IIS. No go. For some weird reason I am getting an XML parse error. An "XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://localhost/index.aspx
Line Number 1, Column 2:<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>
error, to be precise. Am wondering why XML feels the urge to stick its nose into this mess.

And I failed completely to find an ice cream maker. Feh.
