If It's Not One Thing...

Dinner last night was, indeed, excellent. It also may be becoming increasingly rare: My mom's beginning to find the job of cooking onerous, and they may be arranging something with a service of some sort.

Heck, they're even starting to consider moving down the mountain into a smaller place.

After dinner, I dropped by the bar because, well, I'm somehow addicted. It was relaxing, in an odd way: Instead of working on karaoke, I sat in a booth with the laptop and worked on the bar website.

Around midnight I headed back home to the sweatshop (kinda literally: With two desktops, a laptop, and the laserdisc player going continuously, it gets pretty warm in there).

I'm about 80% of the way through the laserdiscs. On the CDG side, well, I'm over halfway done with the MM-6100s. Except...

I happened to notice once that the CDG burner would freeze at certain points (Not too surprising - I'm frequently doing parallel MPEG encoding and, well, XP sucks). The fun thing was noticing that after some timeout it would just go onto the next track without giving an error. A quick check found a few truncated files, but those were only the extreme examples.

So various random tracks may be truncated. I was planning to teach myself Python for this project anyway, but I've had to kick that part of the project into higher gear: I need to write a utility to compare the ripped file length to the CD track size.

Fun fun. Meanwhile, I need to finish up here and head to the bar with my car full of discs and parts...

    I've added a significant chunk of new songs. Granted, quite a few are from "Kiss Me, Kate", but hey. Take a look. There are a few very old requests…

  • A Fair Chunk

    I've added a reasonable chunk of new songs, mostly requests, some of them quite old. Take a look! The track count is up to 24,083, and the unique…
