The tronguy.net referrer logs are showing a bunch of hits from Fark, but I can't find the place where it's listed. Anyone know where it is?

Firewire ain't as fast as it's made out to be

I've come to the conclusion that I can't stream video between my video capture device, a Canopus ADVC-100, and a Firewire-attached disk drive. Every time I try, it drops frames almost immediately after starting. My iMac only has one Firewire bus, and even if it were Firewire 800, that wouldn't help, since neither the Canopus nor the disks are 800-capable.

This is putting a real crimp into my operations. I might have to see about upgrading the disk drive in my iMac, not a pleasant thought. What I really want is an iMac G5, but the funds for that just don't exist. Damn damn damn.

Of course, I discovered this at a point where I need to turn out a few tapes in a hurry...

Okkay, the Sox won.


Now, there's only one team more frustrated than the Astros: the Cubs. The way these things work, that'll get fixed next year, and the Cubs will beat the Astros in the NLCS to advance.
