Video, Computers and Shocking Interaction Design

I’ve been fiddling with computers recently. It all started when my wife bought a video camera (Sony PC-110) with a DV output. Then I got a Firewire card. Then I tried to burn DVDs of my sister’s wedding. Then I f****ing tore my hair out and gave up.

That was over a year ago, but time heals all things, and I returned to the quest to burn a DVD that could play on our DVD player in the living room. This time with film of my sister’s daughter’s christening. After waiting for 48 hours for my old Dell P600 to render the AVI file, I concluded I needed a new machine. So I bought another one.
