Random Mutterings For The Morning  

Genda Tessho (of YYH Toguro ototo fame) does the voice of Ryu-possessing Yapool. How did I miss that???

On the "how clueless are they" front, how is it that no one noticed all the stuff that it would take to make a *building* fly? Not to mention the giant canon? I can just see it now: "Hey, what's that huge giant pipe running along the middle of the building?" "Dunno. Plumbing?" "That sucker sure is never going to block up!"

I found the image I want for an LJ icon. Now I can't find the command to get VirtualDub to export a single frame. Grr.

I wonder if I can get my Firefox countdown to do more than one countdown at a time...? I need to keepthe rally countdown (otherwise I will miss that I have one in, oh, a WEEK), but it would be nice to get a Mebius one going as well.

Rats, I was going to post the results of some of my research from last night. This would require remembering said results, so I think I will hold off until I can review the chat logs.

Trying playing whatever it is you're trying to get a frame out of in whatever video player you use, pause the video on the fram you want, and then press print screen to capture a screen shot into the clipboard.

You can then just open up MSPaint (or whatever) and paste the clipboard contents in, then cut out whatever you want for an icon.

I tried this. It was most intriguing... While I still had the video player open, the image was available for editing, saving, whatever. Once I closed the player, the image vanished. That was particularly weird, since it vanished out of a saved file. (Aparently my program is a little unclear what the word "save" means.)

Say, do you happen to deal with hardware in the world of Wintel? I need to put another hard drive into one of my systems and I'm wondering if you would happen to know anything about how difficult this may (or may not?) be with SATA drives. I've gotten lazy and haven't been keeping up on hardware technology. (I know, I am a bad geek...)

SATA is falling off a log easy to use. Good transfer speeds, gobs of space, and prices comperable to PATA drives.

If you're going to be at Scarecrow's BSG friday, we can discuss hardware there along with R.Ravnos.

I typically won't be at Scarecrow's on Fridays, since I have a pre-existing Friday night commitment.
