I'm feeling tired and it's bedtime. This is a rare conjunction that could mean good things.

I had a full day today. I went across town for lunch to see whether my tires are actually having problems, and they are. Unfortunately, it was late enough that I couldn't make it back to the tire place, and they're closed until Tuesday, when I have to go back to work. I'll check the pressures tomorrow morning to see whether there's a noticeable difference. If so, I can equalize them and see whether there's a leak. If not, I'll have to take the car in on Tuesday to see whether they can find anything wrong with it. I also recorded a few videos for a new LP, which was more difficult than I expected because I forgot that I'd never set up the new desktop to use the HD-PVR 2. I tried to find the component video adapter for the PVR Rocket, but I couldn't find it, so I just installed the drivers for the 2 and got that set up. Something about either the game or the encoding was really off, and the quality was horrible, so I played around with swapping cables and encoding until I finally found that using MP4 instead of MT2S as the container seems to have eliminated the problem. I'm encoding all of the videos so I can see whether there's a noticeable quality difference between the two (once I've cut out the parts with the problems), and if there is, I'll just start the game over and re-record the earlier parts. The problem with that is that it would make me look almost competent at the game, and that's not desirable for a Nidoking LP.

I've got some plans for tomorrow, so I'll have to work around those whatever I do. But recording and doing commentary really doesn't take that long. It's mainly the editing and cleanup that tends to take a while. I can generally do any of those things in the evening after work.
