I am hoping to get my first non-homily podcast up sometime before October. I recorded some things on my voice recorder on my trip to Sioux Falls Yesterday. I don’t expect the first one to be very polished but we shall see what happens. It is mostly an experiment. I still need to find a program to edit these things. I need to do noise reduction and transitions from clip to clip. There are some nice programs out there but some are a bit expensive. I am downloading two trial versions now. I am hoping that the cheaper of te two will work.
If I had a school attached to my parish I could get a great discount with educational software. We shall see what happens.
Next week Children’s adoration begins again. I bought a video camera over the summer when Best Buy had 2 years no interest financing. We are switching to the Cathedral so I probably won’t record the first one. Maybe in October. I won’t need to edit that stuff so I think I can find a program that will compress it for the web that won’t cost me anything. I still haven’t loaded the software that came with the the camcorder onto the computer yet so I don’t know what is available there.
I also am waiting for Bestbuy to have another no interest financing deal of at least 18months on desktops. 2 years would be much better but I dont’ expect to see that. My current desktop is getting a little low on power and out of date. An upgrade would allow me to turn my current box into a server which would make me not worry about bandwidth on my webpage server so much.
One other thing I am hoping for is a No interest financing deal on a tank of GAS. Were at $3.20/gallon in Faulkton.
More to come later.
