Fun with computers

Allright! So I have this file I want to import into Final Cut. It's 3am and my bus to the airport leaves at 5am. I just want to do this, have a quick nap and be on my way. Yeah right! First, you try the obvious. Just drag the file into Final Cut or another supposedly functional editing software.

Ok. So this is not their kind of dish. Might there be something weird with the file? Let's try it in Quicktime first, or maybe VLC. Shurly they play everything.

No? Not everything then. Ok. Lucky for me Sony has developed their own file browsing systems, for the sole purpose of reading XDCAM files. I have both of them on my iMac, so no problem.

What the f...?! No helpe there either. Fascinating! I surly thought that would do the trick. Maybe the file really is broken? Well, then I know just the thing! A file recovery software. Just chuck the stupid thing in there and it comes out shining at the other side.

Oh, look! It's nearly 4pm. I better start packing if I am to reach my plane. Ah well, at least I'm not angry.

It never gets old

Childish? Perhaps. Unethical? Arguably. Entertaining? Definitely. I'm not particularly proud of the motives we've chosen, but what is a bit of racist humor amongst us non-racists? And the poop-fart-pee humour. Admit it! It never gets old. I've spent the best moments of my life giving birth to those nasty silent ones, just to watch peoples reaction as they realize what's hit them. Ooh, the fun we had...

Wizardry

Even though we never figured out how, there are those who's been let in on the deepest secrets of the board. Take our friend Cam for one. He's provokingly good at this shit! Dropping down the smallest of waves while pulling of some sort of snowboard wizardry. If I hadn't checked for myself I would have thought the board was super-glued to his feet. Impressive!

Remembering Raglan

Yeah, we sucked at it! Sure, we swallowed our own body-weight in water! But did we have fun? The time of our lives! I still have problems imagining a more perfect day than the ones we spent jumping around in the shallow waters of Raglan. The sun, my surfboard, cold water, a warm wetsuit and good friends. If that's not worth getting up at 6am I don't know what is.
