While I'm uploading

I was a busy little bee yesterday. I've figured out a decent workaround to the silent clips issue and spent a nice chunk of Sunday trimming down clips. Rather than twiddle my thumbs during the long upload, I figured I share a few thoughts.

For the time being my emphasis is going to be processing the news/daytime/ephemera that I've been capturing all winter.  Two reasons-First, I've spent the last few months toiling hours a day monitoring and deleting or capturing the phenomenal amount of bootage that's been on display this season. It would be anti-climatic for me to suddenly transfer my attention to vintage/feature-films/scripted-TV. I've developed a work-flow I'm comfortable with and it's a productive use of my time. If I bothered to pull a segment off my DVR back in November, it's 100% certain to be bootie.
Which brings us to the second reason. It's been a pretty bad year for scripted TV shows.  It was almost surreal.  The morning and afternoon would be full of thigh-high boots and it seemed like the second the sun set, out came the ankle shoes. Of course there were some exceptions, but in general, the evening shows were a disappointment. Well, the uploads are finished and posted. Now it's time to clear the decks and start all over again.

If the download link is dead, please use the comment box to alert me and I'll try to re-up it.

I'm sure I'm going to regret this, but for now I'm not moderating the comments. I have little doubt that horrid spam-bots will force me to change this policy, but for now.....
