Mistakes and lessons

"You have the capacity to learn from mistakes. You'll learn a lot today."

Thanks, Slashdot, for posting those words of wisdom and encouragement at the bottom of your page. I've been working on some video projects that are simple in concept, but tedious and frustrating in execution. My equipment is just not behaving.

Like I told MJ yesterday, for any big project involving tech you have to book in an extra two weeks for twiddling and tweaking software and going out to buy new hardware to make it all work. During this project I've lost a scan converter to the cruel, laughing gods of hardware and am stunned by the inadequacies of the DV editing software I've been using for the past 8 years. It's time to make some changes...I'm ready to learn a lot today.
