Oh Bollocks

(alex clark)

"How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable,
Seem to me all the uses of this world."


I'm just tired of it. Can't get my damn computer to convert .mts files to something usable without the sound going screwy.

Then the hi-rez films end up looking like crap on GoogleTube or the Internets anyhow. What's the point?

I wish I had somebody to blame for me buying this stupid expensive camera. I'm just itching for it to tell me "PC Load Letter" so I can finish the job.



(from the film classic "Office Space."

Toblet:
What have you, my good friends, deserv'd at the hands of
Fortune, that she sends you to prison hither?

Guildenstern:
Prison, my lord?

Toblet:
Technology's a prison.

Rosencrantz:
Then is the world one.

Toblet:
A goodly one, in which there are many confines, wards, and
dungeons, Technology being one o' th' worst.

Rosencrantz:
We think not so, my lord.

Toblet:
Why then 'tis none to you; for there is nothing either good or
bad, but thinking makes it so. To me it is a prison.

@Uncle David _ that's the only program I've found that will even translate them at all. But the image and the sound get badly mismatched. (Admittedly, maybe I could fix it by tinkering with the settings but I'm not that smart yet).
