Random Stuff, Part 34

* If you are using Vegas with progressive Cineform files, make sure you read this. This is a must-do, or you are losing heaps of quality. The bug is actually not Cineform’s or Vegas’, but whoever wrote the AVI container specification.

* I updated the OSNews’ Mobile Detection Kit package a few days ago. It now includes detection for the Palm Pre among others.

* The Blitzen Trapper are preparing a new EP, that includes songs previously available only via CD-Rs sold at their gigs. Too bad that “Crushing the wheat” is not included, as it’s one of their best songs. I will be buying anyway though.

* David Carradine (along John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Steve McQueen) was one of my father’s favorite actors. I never liked the guy for some reason. While kung-fu and shit are all under my geek skin (I even practiced some tae-kwon-do ITF for a while back in the early ’90s), Carradine rubbed me the wrong way somehow, as a kid. I felt that there was something weird about him. I guess now we know (and there were allegations by one of his numerous ex-wives that he had sex with a young close relative of his). Yuck.

* I guess I have a fetish too. I like intelligent men. For example, there’s this Sony Vegas engineer that I don’t even know how he looks like (never seen a pic of him), but he’s so damn smart that… The guy just gets it, while some others in his team just manage to piss me off.

* JBQ and I watched the “Valkyrie” movie last night. Pretty good movie, we liked it.

* I now have a Google profile. Complete yours too!

* I cooked some Thai curry with rice for lunch, and my stomach hurts right now. Burp…

* Follow me on Twitter for more small useless updates such as this post.

If you like curry, try Lamb Saag. Quite good, had some at an Indian Restaurant in Eureka, Ca. A while back, and then we made some. Quite good, mild curry flavor though…

We gleaned a recipe out of these…. 1, 2, 3
Wasn’t spicy enough to destroy my stomach, but delicious
