Tip of the Quill: A Journal
Good news, bad news.

I’ve only been on campus for a little over an hour and a half this morning and it’s already been a “good news, bad news” kind of day.
The good news: I conducted my first interview this morning using Skype Call Recorder, and it worked like a charm. The software records both sides of the conversation and dumps the resulting .mov file onto your hard drive in a location you specify. I haven’t played with it much outside of that yet, but I’m suddenly really and truly excited about conducting interviews with people, whereas I’d previously been put off by the cost of recording hardware+software and/or my own lousy memory and transcription skills. This is, in my best ninth Doctor voice, fantastic.
The bad news: this morning the news broke that NBC/Universal won’t be renewing its iTunes contract come December, which means that Heroes and Stargate are both going bye-bye. This stinks, because I’d just bought an Apple TV with plans to download my TV instead of TiVoing it. Guess I’m going to have to get cable (and a TiVo) after all. Rats.
