Editing videos and writing content

Yesterday morning, I spent some time working on the next edition of “The Lindahl Letter” and editing some videos. One of them is already up and live on YouTube comparing the two webcams I’m testing out right now the Logitech BRIO and the Dell UltraSharp 4K. Testing out technology is always a fun and exciting thing to do and testing out webcam technology has been fun over the years. The latest webcams are really very good and the sensors are getting better and better. 

Every day for the last few weeks I have had my Fitbit Sense wake me up before 0530 hours. It turns out that I greatly prefer the subtle shake of the Fitbit vs. the jarring madness of any alarm clock sound or tone. A lot of different things have needed my focused attention in the morning and it has not translated to direct keyboard time writing things for the weblog. That is ok and a lot of the things that end up getting produced, written, modified, or coded won’t ever be a part of the weblog. Not all content is created to be placed in my functional journal if that is even a good name for the storage place of my random musings. Getting into a good rhythm where things are being created every day is the important piece of the puzzle. 

Traffic comes and goes from the weblog. People visit every day, but fewer and fewer of them have commented over the years. I’m either not writing controversial or interesting things or the verification process has trimmed out all of the unwanted or unnecessary comments. I’m not sure why that bubbled up to the forefront of my thoughts at the moment. It sure showed up and took over my consideration for a few moments. 

This computer is running the developer preview of Windows 11 Pro and I installed a new video editor the other day called OpenShot. After dropping some video into the editor and working with it to make a video to upload to YouTube I started the video creation process and it was taking forever and all the fans on my computer case started to be as noisy as they get on the Dark Base Pro 900 from the company, “be quiet!”. Anyway, that happened in part due to the fact that the video was rendering using the CPU vs. the GPU. It has been a long time since a video has been rendered in this household with a CPU powering that action. You can imagine that I was super surprised that this could happen with any type of modern software.
