Moa: The King of Destruction

I hate Ustream. And maybe Skype.

The stream failed in every possible respect, and now I've got tons of five-second videos to clear out of my account. Thank you, Ustream. I'll try that Flash Media Encoder next time, but I'm at the end of my rope. My computer just kept losing its Internet connection.

Today's Bridge: I'm pretty sure we won, because we managed a game and the opponents only came close. That's about all I have time for.

Today's Work: I have absolutely no idea.

I really need to stop looking forward to things. They never go well.
Moa: The King of Destruction

Catching up from two days isn't bad.

Today's Work: The meeting lasted pretty much all day, thanks to a few surprise topics coming up that took a lot longer to discuss than anyone expected. Meanwhile, the big news about the shakeup for my division/department came down - a meeting tomorrow morning from 8-10. That's it. I guess it makes more sense than what I was expecting.

I figured out how to use the Line In jack on the desktop, which isn't quite as silly as it sounds - the device only pops up in the list when I plug in the cord, and the first time I did that, my sound drivers pretty much froze up and took most of the rest of the system with them. It gave me more problems when I started it up again, but I think it's working now. That'll let me dispense with VirtualDub when I'm streaming, since I can just grab the sound and video right from the inputs now. I may give that a test later, with the Flash Media Encoder just to see if that works out.
