It means tiger, and it is painful on the legs. Sensei Nick teaches us some Harimau and it is really good stuff. He got everyone thinking about level changes during combat. And it looks cool, too. We took a few videos so enjoy!

This is a clip of the style, to see what we worked on check out the links
(btw, I think Nick is on the right in the picture at the beginning of the video)

Edit: Nick is an instructor in Pencak Silat Sharaf.

My New Flip Camera

I got a new Flip video camcorder, it’s not very fancy, but it’s a lot of fun. Even my wife can use it 🙂

So, technically it’s a Pure Digital Flip Ultra Series F260 Camcorder. I got it from woot for $90 (woot’s the bomb!). The “Flip” in it’s name is due to the flip-up USB connector which makes it very easy to connect to your computer. This connection also allows you install the software directly from the camera itself, so you don’t have to worry about being at Uncle Bob’s and not being able to get to your videos, although it’s nice to never need to worry about my batteries dieing and not having a charger.

It can record 60 minutes at 640×480, and uses a DivX compression format. Not exactly sure what the bit rate is, but it looks good, even in the YouTube video the rocks show up nice and clear, with little artifacting. The functionality is painfully simple, the giant red button in the back records. That’s about it, you can also playback and delete videos if can’t get back to a computer before you fill it. The zoom is so lame it might as well not be there, but it might as well not be there anyway. That kind of functionally is not what this camera is intended for, I don’t see me ever using it. Another interesting feature is that it takes 2 AA batteries, I’m hoping it won’t burn through them too fast.

I’ve got a Canon PowerShot SD500, which I love, and it takes great video. There’s just something about this flip camera that makes you want to use it. Plus, with the flip I don’t need to find an SD card to USB converter.

I’ve also included a link to the original video, for those of you that have the DivX codecs, and care.

2 Guys episode 3 is here!

What have we been doing with our time? Making another 2 guys that’s what.

Sorry about the .m4v format, it’s the only thing I can get to work with the iPod :p It should play in quicktime. I’ll get the DivX version out next week.

The Waterfront delay.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m working on getting the video from Waterfront film festival together. It’s taking me a little longer then I thought, there’s more footage then I anticipated. It’s good stuff, but might take a while.

Just wanted to give you an update, as we haven’t had a podcast in a while, which I’m hoping we’ll take care of this week as well.

We got a two for one post today

Episode 34: We had to make this a quick one.

The Show
The Notes
The Forum

And for anyone that is interested (and I’m not sure why you would be). We’ve got video from Geekfest 06a.

The Video
Sorry about the m4v extension, it’s quicktime. I wanted to be sure it was playable on an iPod. Originally I was going to make it part of the feed, but why torture people unnecessarily. I may be ulgy, but I’m not cruel.

podXor 360 video special

Sterling and I did a special show just for my new Xbox 360. I never thought I’d be this cool.

This damn thing is huge (yeah, that’s what they all say). But it’s the only way we can make sure it works on the iPod video.

Here’s the direct link

We’ll make another one we promise

Sorry for the delay of episode 33. We did a little Xbox 360 special, that should be out tomorrow. I’ve got the video captured I’ve just got to edit it (and everyone knows how good I am at that). Hopefully we can record on Wednesday and get episode 33 to you on Thursday.
