bookofjoe's first video — Premiering today on YouTube


It's up right here as I type these words.

Yesterday, while I was ambling along on my treadmill doing something close 2 nothing (but different than the day before) I got to wondering if I could make a movie using my ancient Minolta Dimage X camera.

Just so you understand what I mean by ancient, it has a 1.5" screen and is capable of 1 megapixel at its highest resolution.

Oh, yeah — it cost $399 when I bought it, maybe two or three years ago, I don't remember exactly.

Anyway, I did recall dimly that it has a movie capability so I noodled around with the controls and darned if I wasn't able, after very little in the way of confusion, all things TechnoDolt™ considered, to make a seven-second-long movie — with sound, no less — of one of my kitties, chillin' atop my treadmill-side desk (above).

Even more astounding was that I was able to put it up on YouTube first try, no problem, in very little time and with a minimum of fuss.

That is some great technology going on there, to make it possible for someone like me to do that by myself.


This could be the start of something big.

Or not.

Pretty good first video. Nice looking cat.

7 seconds of pure bliss! I know, I know, the cat's not the point, it's the TechnoDolt(TM) able to make the video at all. But mine (cat, not dolt -he's fine) has been deathly ill this past week and yesterday she showed the first signs of recovery from a nasty mystery gut ailment and I'm wildly, yet cautiously, happy. So I'm gonna respond to all things cat with a joy WAY out of proportion.

Hail to the feline.
