All you techies out there (or at least the 2.5 of you who read this blog), may laugh your little gadgets off. But those of you who know how it feels to gird your limbs each day to do battle, yet again, with the faster-than-we-can-keep-up-with tech universe, will share my jubilations over my tiny triumphs.
1) I finally learned yesterday that the cable I've been hunting down for months to connect my HP laserjet printer to my Mac ibook is a proprietary HP cable, so I can only get it directly from HP. This after visiting 3 RadioShacks and ordering two cables online and returning them. It wasn't that I didn't know what I needed - it just wasn't out there!
2) This morning, I successfully extracted my precious only DVD of the La Pena show from a jammed DVD player. Without damaging either DVD or player.
3) After several nights of tormented dreams about the editing and cutting of the La Pena video footage to create the promo DVD I need for funders and presenters, I had an editing session this morning with Kar Yin and Narissa, my video editors, where I actually got excited about what we were doing, and how. (How's that for a run-on sentence?) They totally rock. I can't wait to see the rough cut next week.
