Video transfer

Today's Grabber

Boned Jello

This may be of interest to the regular people out there (who aren't  EE's),  I think there are some in the same boat as I.

 Moving up to the next generation computer  presented me with a few problems to solve, chief of  which is importing video from the VCR, and video camera --  that only has RCA outputs?   There ain't no RCA inputs on this computer. 

 Alongside Woot, my favorite vendor is Monoprice.  They seem to sell everything by way of cables, connectors, converters, and adapters - at insanely inexpensive prices --  for very high quality merchandise!  Whew.

I ordered this Tuesday, it arrived today.  I installed it in 5 minutes; had it recording in 10.  So, if you're wondering how to get your old tapes (or even capture movies from the TV) onto your new computer, this'll work,   You're welcome.

Building some immunity here Boss

What's that again Bwana?

NO, Reilly Mate!

Then there was Anya's mysterious
father, Vasily Kushchenko ... .

Oh, the groinals and the glavins

"Anya was great in bed and she knew exactly what to do. She was awesome. For the first few months we met for sex about five days a week. We loved it.

"She also liked posing for pictures," he says, producing the evidence. "I took one of her topless first thing in the morning.

"I said to Anya 'go on get them out!' and I took the picture of her with only a bit of the duvet over her. She laughed about it.

"We were having so much fun. We also experimented with sex toys." Alex then produced a picture of Anna wielding a whip and another toy and wearing nipple clamps. "It was great fun although Anya was covering her face with a hat when I took the pictures!"

During the first few months of their whirlwind romance, smitten Alex saw Anna in both London and Moscow. Alex told how he joined the MILE HIGH CLUB with her during a BA flight back to Moscow in January 2002. He says: "When we were on the plane we came up with a plan to join the mile high club. I went to the toilet first and told her to follow later and knock.

"Anya was wearing a denim dress so I hitched it up and we just went for it. It was fantastic because of the thrill of doing it on a plane. We were in the toilet for about 15 minutes and then one of the cabin crew knocked on the door. I said Anya had been sick and I was helping her." [Full Monty]

Groin-Grabbingly Sacrilicious.  Shame to have to hang her. Sigh.

Wanna fight?

Opportunity Knocks

I last quit smoking eleven years ago, and have yet to regress.  At 3 packs-day I spent a hell of a lot of time looking for matches, looking for cigarettes, going out to buy cigarettes, etc.  The hardest part for me,  then, was ending the ritual; finding things to do with my hands and the extra time.  So, even though I still occasionally yearn for a smoke, this would prolly lead me back to the real thing.  No thanks.  However, the thought of provoking asshat anti-smoker Nazis with this deal is compelling.  If I wanted to provoke. I don't.  But, if I did.

 I had this site linked,  then discovered you can't get out of it.  Selecting "Close all Tabs:still  leaves this one standing.  I had to shut down Firefox with Task Manager. 

Bob Inglis gets bitchy

GOP leaders let demagogues
set tone, lawmaker says ...

That would be soon-to-be ex-lawmaker Rep. Bob Inglis (R SC), showing contempt for the  sheep who had the temerity to end his 12 year sinecure in the House of Princes.

Bob Inglis

WASHINGTON — Too many Republican leaders are acquiescing to a poisonous "demagoguery" that threatens the party's long-term credibility, says a veteran GOP House member who was defeated in South Carolina's primary last month.

While not naming names, 12-year incumbent Rep. Bob Inglis suggested in interviews with The Associated Press that tea party favorites such as former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and right-wing talk show hosts like Glenn Beck are the culprits.-  Blah-Blah-Whine

You really have to read well into the article (written by CBS) to learn the significance of Bill Clinton backing his pick for a Colorado senator;  the  opponent is the sitting Senator AND the Democratic party's "pick".  Obama has campaigned for him!
