Near Disaster

So... what do you have to look forward to tomorrow? Well, almost nothing.

Not almost nothing like that's what I have almost nothing.. almost nothing as in that's what my project almost was... Nothing. I have spent ALL day trying to get a video into my computer. I tried connecting the camera to the computer. I tried using a card reader. I did a major re-organization of the media hoping the clean-up process might help in some way. Nothing worked and I wore the camera battery down to a bare nub in the process.

In a last ditch effort I went fumbling around in my bag of radio goodies and low and behold in a little container that my awesome mother gave me for Christmas last year is a tiny little card reater - the SanDisc MicroMate. I put the card in it - put it in my computer loaded up the image capture and Voila! In less than 10 minutes the massive video file was on my computer. Mom you're awesome.

So what does this all mean to you - I know the beast must be fed. Well, you'll be happy to know that this means tomorrow by 4pm you will be able to view the lovely video story of the Chabab al Andalous from Rabat, Morocco who performed at the Kennedy Center as part of the Arabesque event. Stay tuned...
