Much ado about scripting, Linux & Eclipse: card subject to change



To celebrate Friday the 13th, I went to Ontario Place's Molson Amphitheatre tonight to see Billy Talent tonight w/ SWMNBN, our niece Skylar, and and her friend Katrina. It was Katrina's first time at a concert, and everyone else's second time seeing BT play the home town crowd. Gotta support the local, ahem, talent, after all.

This gave me a chance to try out the video recording on my phone, along with Blogger-in-draft's new video upload feature.

Here's a couple of examples of the a/v quality achievable from my phone, after converting the .3gp files to .mpeg using Miksoft's Mobile Media Converter. I have to say I'm very impressed with the converter (yes, there's a version for linux!) but not so much with the source data captured by the phone.


Where Is The Line?

In addition to video, I tried to take some photos throughout the show (including the encore where Ben got everyone to light up cellphones and lighters), but was repeatedly thwarted by the manic fans in front of us. (I can't fault them for having fun, however, as that was the point of the evening after all.) Good times.
