@erkpod @LacqueredStudio @NathanaelB @lebard @ocean @WarWraith @renailemay Yes, Dell notices social media. Now, how will they fix things?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

Just got a phone call from Dell’s Australian customer service manager. Apparently he saw something on Twitter… ;)

@barrysaunders I can probably write off the beer on tax if it’s for “promotional purposes”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders Yep, the JVC Everio series all have “Quicktime component” listed in specs, so I know I can just plug it into the MacBook Pro.

via Twitter Web Client

Actually, the idea of “Stilgherrian Live” afternoon editions from various pubs gets more appealing all the time. Or is that “appalling”?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Somehow, sitting in the glamorous (!) Canterbury Club Hotel as another coal train goes past, “purge pot” seems an apt thing.

@ApostrophePong If I didn’t want to buy NOW then waiting until next year does get me the Red Scarlett HD camera. http://is.gd/63A Noice!

@thatgrumguy “Unemployment levels must be low or the world is full of dumbasses”? Um, that “or” should be an “and”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thatgrumguy

@SilkCharm An “all berry bang”? Sounds like… well… I dare not SAY what it sounds like.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

Thinking this lemon butter sauce may not necessarily be low-calorie.

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod No, Dell’s not “futilely resisting the tide of change” for “Cnut of the Week” nomination. They’re just useless cnuts full stop.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@aeoth I don’t know low-end camcorders. Was looking high end for my needs. But for web/blog, gee, anything would do. Lens, not pixel count.

via Twitter Web Client

@aeoth I’m guessing that for general family use you can get what you need in the $350 range. I’m just being excessive.

via Twitter Web Client

@rosshill I wouldn’t send email newsletters from your own servers lest you be tagged a spammer. I’d use Campaign Monitor / Mail Build.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rosshill

I will give the retailer one last chance to tell me I’m making a mistake… after lunch.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, sportsfans. I’m still thinking the JVC Everio GZ-HD6 is the camera for me. http://is.gd/31ZT Gotta love 3CCD. Don’t need still pics…

via Twitter Web Client

@viveka Hi to Damski, Kev and Carl! Another time loop closes. The Earth is one step closer to being absorbed into Sarah Palin’s Moosehole.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to viveka

@ApostrophePong Being disappointed with a distinction for your video loop is being overly critical of yourself. Loop here: http://is.gd/2jvP

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@aeoth Re your video camera under $350 question, the question to ask is what you want to DO with it in terms of end result.

via Twitter Web Client

Canterbury Club Hotel. Grilled John Dory fillet $15, with a free beer. WIN! (Even if Canterbury is a shocking hole.)

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar As an aside, the HV20 worked fine with Cam Twist in an earlier episode of “Stilgherrian Live”. Having a beer while I decide…

via Twitter Web Client

@Alex_Manchester Yes, the reviews I’m looking at rate the Sony cameras well, same price points as the JVC. Looking for Quicktime now…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alex_Manchester

@cameronreilly “Christianity” probably is too broad for “Cnut of the Week”, though he have had a hurricane nominated before (!). Narrow it?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cameronreilly

Correction. I’m currently AT Canterbury, suffering consumer choice anxiety. Oh, what to do!

via Cloudhopper

I think I’ll find a quiet spot with power outlet and watch those video comparisons before buying. (I’m currently on a train to Canterbury.)

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders @lnassar OK, well, my must-haves are a Quicktime component so I can stream video live, and prefer not tape.

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders @lnassar Yes, this is the beast. http://is.gd/31ZT Top-end JVC model. 3CCD, MPEG-2 TS, up to FHD/1440CBR recording.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh now I am all soooooooo confused. :(

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders It’s not “just” web, though. Dual role. @ApostrophePong is doing his Masters of Digital Media and will doubtless “borrow”.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat These are all good nominations for “Cnut of the Week”, keep ‘em coming. ;) http://is.gd/3oJM

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@barrysaunders Ah! This JVC camera does MPEG-2, not AVCHD files, so that’s a moot point.

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders Hmmm… Now you are filling me with doubt. :) I thought camera -> Firewire -> Final Cut is all I need to do?

via Twitter Web Client

@michaelmeloni Yes, @mpesce also recommended Digital Camera Warehouse. I’m going to visit them in person now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

… a Quicktime component is essential for me to use it for “Stilgherrian Live”. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client

Mind you, this camera is 1000% overkill for web-based work, but @ApostrophePong is also doing “Art”. The Canon HV30 looks good kit but…

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar Is tape really that much better than HDD recording? All the same compression, surely? (And stop calling you Shirley, I know…)

via Twitter Web Client

A wonderful, wonderful article from “Newsweek” about Sarah Palin. http://is.gd/32Jl

via Twitter Web Client

Any video mavens, before I buy: Am I wrong to be thinking of the JVC GZ-HD6? http://is.gd/31ZT 3CCD is goodness, ja? Non-tape is important.

via Twitter Web Client

Thurs plan (now that one project plan has been done over brunch): Canterbury to get a video camera; stuff; “Stilgherrian Live” at 9.30pm.

via Twitter Web Client

@misswired Axolotls FTW! http://tinyurl.com/3kkbfk My first boyfriend introduced me to axolotls.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@oliyoung John McCain was a nominee for “Cnut of the Week” last week for just that, but hey I have a good photo of him so maybe again. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

Fri plan: Morning desk-pottering (overdue); afternoon at Darlinghurst client; evening unplanned so far.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Have we got timing or even transport for our Cowra road trip yet?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@lewellyn Yes, San Francisco to Cowra IS a lengthy (and moist!) road trip! Still, moist road trips can be fun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@erkpod The new camera does have a Quicktime component, but automatically switches to playback mode when it detects USB. FAIL! More work…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@richardatdell At it happens, Dell’s Aust/NZ Purchase Experience Manager called me yesterday. There has been progress. Thanks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SocialatDELL

@JonoH [smirks] But a FUN sheep. ;) Last night’s “Stilgherrian Live” is online at http://is.gd/3qiR and I’ll provide proper linkage later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Emerges. Slept in until 0900? This is criminal! I am a very bad, baaaaad sheep!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, home and exhausted. I’m gonna hit the sack and reply to the various questions in the morning. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

OH at Brighton Bar: “I bet you $500 you can’t go 2 hours without being a cunt.”

via Cloudhopper

@crispynoodles Well, suggestions for locations are welcome!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispynoodles

@nickhac The uplink worked seamlessly. The vid’s online now, scroll back for url.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nickhac

Just before @ApostrophePong and I sign off, transport to Cowra next weekend? Driver needed! More info tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @erkpod @misswired @Headwellred Glad you enjoyed our little sojourn thru Surry Hills tonight. It has inspired future eps. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@aDB I don’t mind being compared to Max Headroom. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aDB

Thank you to EVERYONE who stayed with me on that strange journey.

via Twitter Web Client

“Stilgherrian Live” is online for your pre-recorded pleasure at http://is.gd/3qiR … though it may not all be uploaded yet. Scary.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ll start the plinkies at 9.20pm or so to save battery life. http://stilgherrian.com/…

via Cloudhopper

30 minutes until showtime. People are telling me we’re changing venues. This could get weird.

via Cloudhopper

In the cab. The driver is telling me how he only has 2 demerit points left on his licence. This is not reassuring.

via Cloudhopper

70 minutes until “Stilgherrian Live” from The Clock Hotel, Surry Hills at http://stilgherrian.com/… … I hope this cab arrives on time!

via Twitter Web Client

Dear new camera, plz be finished charging batteries so I can has tests b4 “Stilgherrian Live” kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

Bugger it, I’ll just tell you now. I’m planning to do “Stilgherrian Live” from The Clock Hotel in Surry Hills for @Fush’s farewell.

via Twitter Web Client

Warning! “Stilgherrian Live” is just 2 hours from NOW at http://stilgherrian.com/… with a VERY special technical treat for you!

via Twitter Web Client

@Fush OK,yes, I will do “Stilgherrian Live” from the Clock Hotel, Surry Hills tonight. Whether I have “Camera 2” depends on the experiments.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

“I’m afraid I’ll have to ask you to leave the hotel. You just won’t stop working.” Damn you, Telstra NextG!

via Cloudhopper

last-chance nominations for tonight’s “Cnut of the Week”. http://is.gd/3oJM It’s a solid field of contenders so far!

via Twitter Web Client

35C in Sydney tomorrow? After the coldest August since WWII? OK, who fucked up the planet? Own up!

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 I’m not sure about being ready for tonight. Will *I* even be ready for tonight? It’s been a long day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@limburger2001 (However you can’t get “Stilgherrian Live” in HD ‘cos none of the streaming services support that resolution. Yet.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

If I get this tested OK, I may use it to broadcast from the Clock Hotel and @Fush’s farewell drinks tonight.

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 Yes, a selection criterion was a Quicktime component software driver so it could plug into Cam Twist and “Stilgherrian Live”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

I now have a JVC GZ-HD6 camera and accessories. I went back to my first choice. The camera geeks at Digital Camera Warehouse are reassuring.
