Tuesday…some sense of normalcy

Sorry again for the distance of time between posts. No excuses…but busy-ness.

I guess none of you had any fantasic contraptions (except Adam) that you wanted to share. Either that or you’re cursing me under your breath for getting you addicted too. I actually just finished the last puzzle last night (Monday). Tough stuff. I may even pay 10 bucks for the “extended” version with more puzzles. Too bad it’s not on XBOX Live…then I’d be able to play it all the time!

Today was a little taxing. We have our church’s Fall Festival here tomorrow night (Wednesday). We always have some sort of creative way to share the Gospel with all who come. This year, we found a video that sort of compares the world’s obsession with death (via Halloween) with God’s obsession for life (via Jesus’ death – what an irony). It’s quite creative. It just had music in the background and text on the screen over various images. Knowing we’d have a lot of kids around, we decided to record our pastor reading the text. Then I took the recording, split it up into its various pieces, and inserted them at the right time so that his voice now sounds as the text is being displayed. Worked out pretty good.

However…something in the way I saved the video had an issue with my Vista based laptop. I know all you Vista haters are saying, “Serves you right for using Vista!” However, it was a codec problem…not Vista. I encoded the video via Windows Media Encoder (a free download) and converted it from the unworking avi file to a working wmv file. All is well now. It should work just fine for what we need tomorrow night.

The rest of today will be devoted to any last minute set-up needs as well as getting some guitar practicing done for a few student praise team songs coming up in a few weeks. Have a great day and check out yesterday’s post with the fantastic contraptions!
