Odds and ends

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

If you haven’t been to my website in a while, check it out. www.HikeHalfDome.com – I just added a video clip. It’s the upper level of Sub Dome. I did the hike in June with 3 Brits. You can tell from his accent. I use Yahoo Sitebuilder which I really like. If you are thinking of creating a website – try them. For $12 a month I get the URL, they host it, their tool provides 300 templates and they give 24 phone support. With real Americans on the other end. Best of all there is no html coding involved. WSIWIG – What you see is what you get. The software resides on your system (my laptop), so I can make changes pretty much in real time. Then when you “publish” it goes to the Yahoo server for assembly and web loading. You can make up your own look and feel. I have been playing music for a while on my home page and thought I’d try some video. The clip you see is off my Casio digital camera in Quicktime. I think it looks pretty good. Thought of adding video to the blog – but WordPress charges $60 a year to add video – nah. Lemme know what you think. I have a gob of short videos that I may add from time to time.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Who put the bomp in the bomp buh bomp buh bomp? Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong? Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop Who put the dip in the dip dee dip dee dip? Who was that man, I’d like to shake his hand . . . He made my baby fall in love with me.” – The Platters

    Nice video Rick, brings back memories. If anyone can’t see it, I had to update Quicktime to the latest version to see it.

    I’ve been meaning to upload some videos I took on my hike this year…here are a couple…

    Good quality.

    I took my GoPro wide angle head mounted videocam up last summer and got all the cables going up. But I suck at video editing so it mostly just sits. About 10 mins too long to post. One day I’ll do someting with it.
