red_dead_redemption_2Back in October (2016) Rockstar Games announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be coming out in fall 2017.  Well the the game has been delayed.  This all was happen with their games.  So it was no surprise they announced the delay on their blog, in this > post.   It is still disappointing.  Was really hopping it would be out this year.  We will have to wait now to Spring 2018. There is some good news to share.  They gave us new screen shots.  You can see them in the link above or see them below.

Few post back talked about the RODE VideoMicro and that I ordered one.  Well it showed up at my door yesterday.  It is smaller than I thought it would be.  This is fine because it will make it easier to use.  You can see some pictures below.  Plan to run some tests.  With out and with it on my camera.  Just to see (well hear) the differences.

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2017 by getbent57

Say this every time.  But have been looking forward to the first motorcycle ride of the year for very long time.  Well, technically it was yesterday (April 27, 2017).  Had the day off.  Then there was the weather.  A beautiful day out.  Was around 20°C.  Which it a lot warm them most year.  No, the temperature will not stay.  But hope it doesn’t get too cold. Want to start taking it to work.  The motorcycle worked great.  Nothing felt our of place or wrong.  It will be eleven years old this May.  Have had next to no trouble with it.  Do have to get a inspection.  So when they do that it find out if there is any problems.  Looking forward to another season of riding.

 

AGPtek HD Video Capture

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on March 7, 2017 by getbent57

Last week ordered a AGPtek branded HD Video Capture.  It came in the mail today.  Have been looking forward to trying this out with my Raspberry Pi 3, running RetroPi.   It is very easy to setup.  You plug the HDMI cable coming from your game device.  Then there is another HDMI port which will run from the Capture to your TV.  Plug in the power.  The next step is to plug in a USB thumb drive or a USB powered hard drive.   Wait a minute to the drive to be read.  When you are ready to start recording.  Just press the red button on the front.  Below are some pictures of the HD Video Capture.  Will be uploading some video to YouTube soon.

christmas-tree.pngI hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  The weather here was very nice for the most part.  Just a bit of blowing snow.  As all ways the food is the best part.  Try to pace myself but ended up eating way too much.  It was well worth it thou.  Now looking forward to a nice hot turkey sandwich.  With left over dressing.

 

 

 

 

Christmas Tree 2016

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2016 by getbent57

christmas-tree.pngIt has been a tradition in our house to setup/decorate the Christmas Tree on the first Sunday in December.  Over the years have gotten pretty good at getting the lights fast.  The trick is to have they all laid out on which stings to put on first and last.  All so being not to fussy helps.  Turned out pretty good, I think.
