The Interview Mar. 15, 2011

Personal Preparedness on WRVA

WRVA put up a podcast of my interview from yesterday, so I used my iPod to film a title screen while the mp3 played.  I'm sure there are easier ways to do it, but it worked OK.  I'll probably update it when I upgrade my AV equipment at some point.

I'm a Winner!

No, not like Charlie Sheen...  A big THANKS to M.D. Creekmore at The Survivalist Blog and his sponsors, Lucky Gunner!  A couple weeks ago, I made a blog post about Lucky Gunner to enter a contest and just found out that I've won the first prize, a $200 credit.  Gotta love free ammo!

Virginia's Statewide Tornado Drill

Today the Va. Department of Emergency Management ran a tornado drill across the state.  There were over a million registered participants.  It got kicked off at 9:45 with an alert over the NOAA Weather Radios.  In addition to a drill for our schools, I used it as a reason to remind folks in our administrative building about what they can do at work and at home to prepare for a tornado.

I know other states have statewide earthquake drills, do any others do a tornado drill, and have you participated in any statewide drills?

  1. Without knowing your starting formats it's difficult to speculate. However, you should be able to use the native Windows Movie Maker to create something similar.

    Create your title slide as a image, then add it into your project. Then you should be able to add you audio. I have created a few 4min 'movies' using this method with a number of images and a single audio stream.

    You can output the file is several file types and bit rates.
