Palm Lifedrive Trial

Well I've started the Palm Lifedrive trial process with the School of Sport at unitec - the staff are quite excited about the idea, so I'll be demoing the potential of the technology later this week. It's taken a while, and experimentation to create a stable 'profile' for the Lifedrives - certain apps crash the devices, and although the Lifedrive supports any data format in 'drive mode', attempting to install a non-recognised format media file using hotsync causes a crash. Best to use 'Drive mode' for installing large media files.

Quiet Week

Well its been a quite week after last weeks intense 3Day workshop. Installed OSX TIGER onto my G5 - no real problems, except for a bug crash with Logic Pro - turned out to be the Apple Pro Application Enhancer not automatically updating from OSX 10.3 to 10.4 version.
Will probably install TIGER on powerbook next week, after I find all issues on G5.

Workshop Home Run!

Tomorrow we'll look at the capabilities of DVD Studio Pro, and then you'll have time to finish your videos, and create your DVDs using either iDVD or DVDSP. The burning shouldn't take long as we're keeping the video files short, so around 15-20mins for burning (hopefully). Then we'll mark each others projects!

We survived two Days!

Well, we've finished the second day of the DVD Production workshop, tomorrow we will have an overview of DVD Studio Pro, and continue working on your Projects. Don't forget to put the outline of your project on the Moodle forum, and keep Blogging! Have FUN!

having Fun Moodling!

I've been setting up a course using Moodle - & i must say that I quite like moodle! It has some nice collaborative features builtin, and an effective file handling structure for uploading & storing files for a course (which can then be linked into course notes etc...). Moodle on....
