You say you want to make a change in the world.  What will you do once you attain it? What's preventing you from doing that already?

Who are you if you take on a different persona at every hour? Would anyone truly ever know you? Would you even know yourself?

School and College

August 3rd, 2010 | Posted by pftq in Thought of the Day | #
Where in school there was a sense of buildup and progression, in college there is but a series of intermissions, a collection of fragments along a flattened stairway, a constant scramble to proceed as quickly as possible without a destination.

New Encore CS5 Flash/Web DVD Features

July 1st, 2010 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

     Finally had a chance to look at the Flash export for Encore CS5 and I have to say I wasn’t expecting any changes actually but it’s very nice to see they updated the playback features on it. The usual chubby looking buttons for pause and skip are now replaced with a sleek little bar for playback, volume, subtitles, and even search:

     The best improvement I think so far is the ability to scrub (seek) in the video, instead of just skipping through chapters. The search feature lets you find chapters that contain a keyword and actually allows search engines to find your Flash file as well, but for an actual movie, I haven’t found much use for it yet.
While I like the new features though and the redesign, there are a few issues:
     - Playback controls show up on menus. In previous versions they were hidden until a video started playing. Here they overlap the menu constantly as soon as you move the mouse.
