So all the work done on the closed captioning over the last year has a major snag. There are ‘dropouts’, meaning whole sentences that aren’t making the cut. Because of broadcast standards and practices, this is unacceptable. Now I have to figure out how to fix it. Whilst working on my semi-annual biggest project that means I have to work 10-12 hour days. Not exactly the greatest distraction I was looking for, but it will suffice for now. I only have 3-4 more options to try. We are going out analog S-Video with the captions on Line 21 to SD tapes. The chronological, scientific method of problem solving means trying firewire from Adobe Premiere Pro next. If that doesn’t work, then trying directly from Sony Vegas firewire, although that will take enormous render times. If it works, then the time is worthwhile.

After that my options become limited, and my time to get it fixed even less so. A clock is ticking and that means FRAMELINES could be in some trouble.

Combine all this stress with a weakened physical state, I’m still bleeding and having issues getting sleep due to fevers, and whatnot. Your faithful narrator ain’t on top of his game. I’m faltering. I want to pull myself together, get my head back where it needs to be, and go something special.

A good, maybe even great thing, on another front has arrived. In the stages of securing a mortgage, I discovered a glitch in my credit report. I am tagged by something that it’s taken several months to figure out. There is a mysterious debt and an alleged judgement. The strange thing I discovered today was that this judgement on the credit report doesn’t actually exist. The court will secure me documents saying so, and the 3 major credit reporting agencies will have no choice but to remove that black mark.

Finally, a legal victory that doesn’t make me sick to my stomach! I hope to put all of my drama behind me as soon as a few loose ends tie themselves up. One brick at a time, I tear down this wall of needless acrimony.

I stand by what I said a few blogs prior. Under no circumstances can ending animosity be wrong. Holding that negative energy inside only rots your soul. Feuds keep everyone down. Letting it go sets you free. I want to be free of the hatred, free of the pain.

“Love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
