Dumbbells

Posted in Health on Tuesday, July 25, 2006 by Yatta

Ok I seem to have the walking down pact. I think i have down so much that  I notice i wake up approx. 4:30 – 5:00 every morning?!?! Is that my body trying to tell me something?

I remeber reading Body-for-Life book.. which said soemthign liek if you want to change ur body you have to weight train. Excercising alone will just make you be a smaller you. So if you are shaped like a pear  you’ll just be a smaller pear; since I don’t want that. I’m going to change it!!! I have my bench here just looking pretty… time to make up a routine nad put itto use.. and chisel a semi-god like body :D.

(Hey I’m being realistic here… I don’t think I can chisel a god like body so i’ll settle for semi-god.. hehehehehehe )

Mythtv: ffmpeg slooooww

Posted in General on Tuesday, July 25, 2006 by Yatta

Ok i finally have ffmpeg compiled from source and nuvexport ready to go. Yesterday i spent most of the flippin evening trying to get these tign to work.. nuvexport would just end up telling me:

Waiting for mythtranscode to set up the fifos.

After seeing that blasted line for a few hours I just decided to give it a break an head to bed.

As per usual with computer things once u leave it and come back to something STRANGE seems to always happen. Nuvexport work?!?!?!?! One thing i have noticed tough is that the shit slow.. I don’t know if it’s my P4 1.8Ghz machine with just 384MB Ram but over 3hrs to encode to xvid/divx? FPS is only like 3FPS !!!

I do like how nuvexport picks out what shows I have recorded 😀 
(P.S. the Virgin show is just a encoding test hehehe) As i say that how long will it take for a 45min show?!??! this one here is only like 20mins?!?!

No sah!!!!!!!!! Sumting MUST wrong. I’ll have to google and see what is what.

MythTV and divx/xvid

Posted in Computers & Internet, Linux on Sunday, July 23, 2006 by Yatta

Ok…. these 2GB recordings are startign to get on my nerves now especially when u know you can get them into smaller sizes with divx.xvid.

I tried to transcode but that just seemd to move the file from 2.1GB to 1GB.. still not acceptable.. nope. It converts it to nupplevideo?? i think that is the name cause I just see a new file type in my DIR that has a *.nuv extension.
I’m going to try and use nuvexport and see how i fear with that. I need to try out the abilty to cut out the commercials see how good it does that.
I must add though i’m loving my MythTV… i just need to get teh radio aspect of it working and also fine tune my remote for some of the key bindings.

Ohh well i’ll keep you guys posted.

Bye-Bye Sysinternals and Winternals

Posted in General on Sunday, July 23, 2006 by Yatta

Programs like ERD Commander and some TCPtools have helped me out a few times in some tight situations with Windows. To think that Microsoft has acquired the two guys who put this software pack together I hope can only mean good things for MS.

In the meanwhile while they are still free is shall be downloading all the free apps from http://www.sysinternals.com/ that have soem sort of interest to me.

Anime Trading Day 3.0

Posted in Anime on Sunday, July 23, 2006 by Yatta

Some anime loving frens of mine had.. yep u guessed it a Trading Day where we just got together and traded some anime.

It wasn’t to bad nice little turn out. Most of the aniem that was beign traded were: Mai Otome, Outlaw Star, xxxHolic, Chrno Crusade, Eureka Seven and some more. Ironically there was NO Naruto traded. I believe all of us are tired of that damn series now.. u see if they would just follow the manga it would be great…. but NOOOOO they are filling the shit with so many fillers it nuh funny.
We could have used a bit more power outlets and DVD burners.

Posted in Health, Personal on Saturday, July 22, 2006 by Yatta

I just went on the scale…. guess what!!!!! I’m back to 250lbs. Yea i know that is still nuff BUT its lighter than  274lbs which i was about 2 months ago.

Looks like all that walking and changing eating habits are really working. Ahhhh I’m happy. Now I just need to keep it up.

See if i can reach 230lbs by about Sept/ Oct. Dammit my belly just seems more pronounced now?!?!?  I hate that shit….. Yea I’m 30yrs old but sheesh man i don’t need a belly to prove it to ppl. 😀

A little anxius for work?!?!?!

Ok… this thing is killing me. Since the end of MAY i left my call centre job, to make a long story short.. I burned out after a little more than a year. Since i left that job i’ve been working with dad and his business. The way i was so anxious to get out of the call centre job I said i would even work with my father!!!! Trust me … me working with my father is a BIG step.

With some help from a GOOOOD friend I had 2 interview’s with a new and upcoming company in my area that seems to really mean business. The 2nd interview I had I was at the company from 7:45am… for a 9am appointment. It was either be there early or late, so i chose early, because traffic is horrendous in that area. If i get that position i don’t think i would even think about it as work.. I’ll be doing shit that I love… messing with up and coming technologies. My brain won’t have time to get lazy since there will be so much to do. BUT… yea there always has to be a friggin BUT…. anyway I have some competition…. 2 people at that. After a the 3rd, imprompto interview with HR personnel, I was told I should hear something that afternoon or tomorrow (which is today) nothign as yet.

When I left the office at 12pm (yes after being there from 7:45am) i eft feeling good… i was on top of the world. Evenign came.. have the phone next to me.. just in case i get that call. Nothing…. 😦

Last night was one of the worse night’s sleep i’ve had in a GOOD while!!! i ono’t think i really slept for a total of 2hrs!!! i was tossing turning… trying to sleep on the oppsite side of the bed i usually sleep on, etc… i just couldn’t get a goo’d night sleep.

Was that ALL because of this damn prospect of new job?!?! Sheeeesh…….. I was so wound up i never even bothered to walk this morning, I just wasn’t in the mood. Well I still have the rest of today and monday to hear something.

Let’s just hope that i can sleep tonight!!!! PLEASE let me sleep.

*****Wheew that was some rant!!!****
