I had quite the quiet, unambitious long weekend. I was on holiday both Thanksgiving day and the Friday after, and I had only one commitment, Thanksgiving dinner at my sister's. That went mostly well, until something political came up. That didn't exactly go well, but ... well, I might write about that (in general terms) later. Or not. The dinner was good. I was responsible for supplying vegetables and dinner rolls. I brought a bag of frozen corn and a bag of mixed broccoli-carrots-water chestnuts-pea pods. I was the only one who had any of the latter. *shrug* I took the remainder of those and some leftover turkey home. There was no leftover pumpkin pie, sadly.

Then came my misadventures in Second Life, described previously, notable only because I really really hate "ralphing." All that excitement on Thursday!

Friday, I was at Java Hutt for coffee and internet. Saturday, I was at The Dovetail for coffee and hanging out with James the Writer. In between were several naps. Friday was REI's #OptOutside day, but we had cold drizzle and rain all day, followed by even colder drizzle. At least I wasn't at a shopping mall.

Sunday was the most pleasant, because that was the day I was most awake. I finished my tape archive project by digitizing a few songs that are just plain bad (hey, they can't all be gems). I also pulled out the remaining VHS videos from behind the DVDs. Now the video tapes are in three piles: ones to discard right away, ones that will probably be discarded soon, and ones that I want to try digitizing. Yes, another one of THOSE projects! These are mostly concerts from more than a decade ago. I bought software and hardware that's supposed to let me transfer from my VCR to the laptop. I haven't installed yet, but soon, my preciousssss, soon.....

Admit it. You had Black Friday off to shop...

What software did you get to transfer the VHS to DVD?

It is Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus. It has the software plus a connecting cable for the VHS outputs to USB input for the computer. I hope to load it soon and see what I can do.

The box says it will also let you convert LPs and audio tapes to CD, too, though I can do that via other means.
