Young Dean

When the madness began...

Some of you who have commented on If Clothes Could Talk have noted that I must be slightly crazy. I usually respond with an anecdote about how I really like to organize information...and have been doing so ever since I was a kid.

Well, now I have proof. My mum has been going through some old files, and she found an excel spreadsheet I made when I had just turned 13. It's an inventory of all of my stuffed toys (I had quite a lot). 

Here is a snapshot of it (with spelling mistakes preserved):

And yes, I had a Leopard named Cheetah.

I'm actually REALLY glad I made this at that time, because I wouldn't remember the dates these days. So, I'm quite proud of myself for recording this seemingly useless information before I forgot it. :P

Vidding Question

Does anyone know anything about rendering? 

I'm doing a vid-project (for personal use only)...and when I go to "produce" my vid, it takes forever and gives me a file that is 2+ GB, which doesn't make any sense to me since the source file isn't even that big and what I'm producing is shorter.

I was just wondering if anyone could give me any tips...should I be producing only into .wmv format instead of .avi or mpeg4? What gives?

Any help would be appreciated!
