Finding the Time

These days just are not long enough! Seriously, between work, life and other random craziness it is difficult to squeeze in the time actually play some of the stuff I 'need to' play. We try to get in a mix of new and old games, some variety in the content for the 25 Cent Play Podcast, but it doesn't always work out that way. Since we're doing the podcast as a hobby and a reason to get together and drink some beers it is hard to say, "Yeah we'll take a look at your game". When we don't quite fit it in it's not because we don't like it, we've just bitten off more than we can chew, but we do the best we can, I suppose. Heck just preparing the show seems to eat up a lot of time, and I don't even really do too much editing to it. On top of that, there is the Second to Last Hit, which I usually forget to post, is probably the most time-consuming since I haven't figured out a good workflow to go from Xsplit's odd FLV format to something that I can use easily in Adobe Premier without first running it through FFmpeg. I did try to edit and convert directly from FFmpeg, but due to the way Xsplit sets key frames it results in the first 20 or so seconds of video being unwatchable when uploaded to YouTube. One of these days I'll take a look back at that and see if there is a better way. I just remembered I need to also do some edits to the layout of shindakun dot net and 25 Cent Play sites, I better get on it before I open Guild Wars 2 again...
