July almost over and running a little late for this months update.
I think we all have our concerns as the economy does what it does in times of high inflation and that can vary. From web companies downsizing to business doors closing due to decreased consumer spending, everyone feels it. So how did Lipcrack fair in the prevailing economic climate.
The thing we did notice is a rise in cyber crime so for now all we can say is always take time to review your online shopping accounts, watch those creeping account transaction costs and don’t over spend with a business you don’t know. For those of us with online websites, we have to be aware of non-responsive tech support, missing tech request data and general run arounds in an economy that’s based upon market leaders profit performance and how the rest get manipulated in the sidelines.
With that said, I’m about to provide you with something that happens to many people, Lipcrack included. I purchased a digital video recorder way back in the day and still am happy with it, thing is, recently I once again attempted to access some video footage that is still waiting to be downloaded to a computer. Now I didn’t actually purchase this software for this task (it’s for 3-d animation files) but the software I did purchase made all these claims about, how it could access this type of data file.
Well after running every test and check possible, it was determined that this program couldn’t actually access the digital video, the drivers that came with the camera disc never were able to access the camera and Microsoft have not included this driver for some reason in Windows 10. I know there’s other options for accessing the data to edit and when I have a spare moment will again attempt to, however for now its not accessible. What I did learn from this though, is there are all range of software makers out there making claims in regards to digital video and a lot of them have compatibility issues even though they work with the medium.
I’m well aware that mobile phone footage and easy upload of video is a major selling point of those devices but when it comes to editing footage, that’s a different task and while I’ve used a range of editors, it’s still a long process to work through the hazards that come with editing software and usually at quite an expense.
So the news for this month is, mail-outs were held up again due to a new range of issues which included as an outcome, an update with the software manufacturer, yet to be tested. In the meantime, I set to the task of learning an updated video platform. I’m just over a third of the way through the manual and it’s going reasonable well, I have used this one before and the current plan is just to be able to jump right in and use it without having to find my way around the updated interface which has come with some significant redevelopment. Sound familiar ?
And that’s about it, I’ll leave people with this little file that was created in the process, its a “What’s going on in the spare time” moment. I created this imaginary Dragon Castle when checking out some 3-D software. It was a bit of a joke, but I still joke about it.
See you all next month Lipcrack.
