  1. 2.99 a gallon....... yup

    $2.99 a gallon - sounds like a bargain to me. Current UK prices for petrol are about £4 a gallon - that's over $7!!! ...maybe I shoulda put this in the Rants secion

    What format is it in? I've never uploaded anything to googlevideo before, but just took a look and this is what they say: "We accept video in AVI, ASF, QuickTime, Windows Media and MPEG formats. Specific video codecs we accept include H.264, H.263, MPEG 1/2/4 and motion JPEG." There will always be apps which you can download to convert the video into a suitable format. Remember, the internet provides everything you will ever need ...mmm, bar life fullfilment. That's currently at the Beta stage. (sorry, sorry, sorry. what can i say - im a sad copmuter scientist geek. i promise no more 'jokes')

    Hi, errr just outa interest I was wondering how the progress is going with uploading the video. What can I say ..I'm impatient!
  4. Im workin my ass off...

    Well having seen this topic, I'm just a bit too much of a whinger to miss the chance to ...well ...whinge. Over the next two weeks I have to do: 35,000 word writeup on Mobile Web Authoring Assessment on Non Standard Computation Assessment on Adaptive Learning Agents Assessment on Computing with Biology and Chemistry The work has been started but there's ooooh so much to do still. I'm very much someone who thrives under pressure, but I think this is gonna be a real test!!!!! Whinge finished. (at least that's one thing done)
  5. Hemingway

    "Burroughs defined the beatnik thing" hmm would strongly have to disagree with this. Mainly because KEROUAC defined the beat generation - how can this be ignored -it's prety much fact. Admitedly Ginsberg was also very important (next to Kerouac, he was probably the most important out of their whole cirlce), but seriously burroughs??? I think his writing style lacks any real energy, creativity, or even originality for that matter - major areas to be lacking in for a "beat" writer! Just my opinion, but well ...i think I'm right ...obviously...
  6. Myspace songs

    Rants ...the not so good things that happen ...well that has to be the new Regina Spektor songs up on myspace - especially Fidelity (Better aint to bad). Don't get me wrong, I love these songs, or at least did when I heard her perform them live, and in all the bootlegs I've downloaded. But Fidelity has been ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED, to the extent that I didn't really think would be possible. Crappy studio beats etc actually manage to distract you to the point where you miss the lyrics and the voice behind them. What are they doing to her? Hiding her behind rubbish techniques that are used to cover up lesser artists lack of talent. This is exactly what they're making her sound like. I said it was a rant didn't I! Maybe I'm going over the top a bit, but was just extremely unimpressed. All an album needs to be great is a piano, guitar, maybe a stick, and REGINA SPEKTOR. Nothing Else! What dya all think?
