The Caretaker's Concern for 4/28/2010

TCC for 4/28/10:

The day started out cold, windy and some occasional rain, by this morning more of the mountain tops along shore were snow covered. Come the end of the day all the snow had melted away. The Caretaker was left in charge of a dog for a few days, by evening the wind had died down leaving the Lake quite still and the clouds began to give way making for a pleasant evening of "fetch" with the dog.
Photos from today:

Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:

Island Ice Report for 2/17/07:

Outside temp: 20 F
Ghetto temp: 60 F
Wind: south west
Sky: sunny
Precipitation: none

Slow day, which is obvious from today's photo. However, the Caretaker had intended for something totally different. A short movie. He figured out how to use his digital camera to take movies, and so he made one of comedic intent. Unfortunately he is having trouble editing the movie, he works on a Mac and the video was recorded in "MPEG Muxed" format and so when he transfers the footage to iMovie for editing there is no audio. Unfortunately his camera will only record video footage in the MPEG Muxed format. The movie is only about 40 seconds or so, but he does think you would find it most entertaining, however, if you can't hear anything it falls quite flat. Now should you never see this movie it won't be a great loss, however, it occurred to the Caretaker this morning while in bed mulling over the problem that if you don't see video footage of ice-out and the effects of the moving ice it might very well be quite a loss to you. So, the Caretaker is asking any of you who may have a solution to this problem, please either e-mail him or call him, he would greatly appreciate it.
He has tried working with Quicktime Player Pro to transfer the footage data to iMovie so as that the audio will be present, but he is not having any luck, perhaps there is something in the software he is missing, or there is some other software that he should be using. Or, perhaps there is some other software besides iMovie that the Caretaker should use for editing. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and by the way, the short film the Caretaker was hoping to send out yesterday for this IR of the 17th is of such a nature that if "The Beef Jerky Show" were to come back on the air, this footage would be prime material.

A number of questions have been submitted to the Caretaker, he will make a point to answer them later today in the IR for the 18th.
