I have had the FZ300 camera for almost one month. Today was the first time I shot a 4K video. Here is that video. It is a 6 minute video and the file size was 4 GB. It took almost two hours to upload.
I called Spectrum, Charter, and cancelled the Spectrum TV. Russ or ordered the TV as part of a special and with it you got 100 down. We had 60 down. I will be back paying $59.99 just for Internet now and I just did a speed test and it looks like they cut our speed back down to 60.
In the video you will hear me wonder about the container in the parking lot. It is not there for AT&T fiber. The apartment complex is going to have some sort of building taking place.
I am just waiting for AT&T to offer fiber Internet. Just for the 1 GB up and down the price will be $90.00 a month.
I have two or three reviews I want to do today for Amazon and then I am not going to do anymore reviews for them. I had fun doing the 426 reviews. But it was a lot of work and a lot of time.
It took a lot of time. I want to use my time now to do different things.
After I do the reviews today I am going to turn off my Amazon Review Profile. I attempted to edit it but it looks like Amazon is not allowing that … So I will just turn it off so that the public can not see it.
My 426 reviews will still be on Amazon for people to see.
I am glad, I guess, that Amazon decided to have a fit and change rules.
I guess today everyone is looking for cyber Monday sales. I looked at a few. I see a couple of items I would like to have … But I just do not have the money to spend.
I am going to call today and cancel Charter TV service. Russ upgraded a month or so ago to TV service so that our Internet speed would go from 60 Mbps to 100 Mbps. If they want to cut my speed down to 60 Mbps I am OK with it. I just am not interested in TV and do not want to pay that extra amount for it.
AT&T has put in high speed fiber .. Well at least it is out on the street. They have not contacted anyone in the apartments about the 1 Gbps up and down service yet. I will go with AT&T if they contact me. Of course that speed would cost me about $90.00 a month.
Here is my most recent YouTube video:
Hallelujah – a pray for the 26 victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
I was going to do early voting in Texas today. I am not sure I am going to do it today. I was thinking that my normal voting place would be the place I would do early voting. No it is not. The place I would have to go is 6 miles from here and would take me 12 minutes if there is no traffic. I do not have a car so I was going to take Uber there and back.
I think I will just wait for election day and vote at the place that I been voting for years. I took the bus in the past and I even walked home from voting one time. My heath has changed and I do not think I would be walking home again from voting.
I been up all night .. I had to fill my pill box. I do that on the 1st of the month. It takes some time to do.
Oh … I do not get a commission from YouTube if you watch the above video and 3,434 have watched it so far. The reason I do not get paid is because I put the word “drug” in the tags.
There are, at least, five other videos that Amazon rejects for the same reason. One of them has 22,751 views – “What is a pill cutter?”
I am thinking about Not Monetizing any of my videos. That means that you would not see adv on any of my 600 videos. It means I would not get any commission when people watch my videos. I get about $30.00 a month now. But I am just tried of having to deal with the crap from YouTube.
You should soon be seeing much better YouTube videos from me. I just ordered a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 camera. I had in the past the FZ200 and it was an excellent camera. I did not have it long. I got it and loved it but I sold it on eBay so I could buy a smaller camera. I got, and still have, a Panasonic DMC-LX7.
But I missed the FZ200.
The FZ300 has some major improvements. It does 4K video. It does WiFi and that will help me. I can use it instead of the USB webcam for my YouTube desk videos and I can zoom and control the camera using my cell phone or tablet.
I think my YouTube videos are going to get much better. We will see.
If you want to read about the FZ300, the FZ330 in the UK, the best review I think is the DPReview.
I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.
Welcome to Howard’s Notebook
I have been playing Civ V for years. Right now I am downloading, from Steam, Civilization VI. I wonder if I am going to like it. Civ V I just do the single player version. I never play others. I also just play it very simple. I am not sure I have ever completed a game. I like to keep it simple and easy. I just enjoy build up my nation.
So this is going to be very different for me.
I am getting the $59.99 version and I am getting it from Amazon.
So I just paid for it and Steam is downloading it.
