Screencapping with VLC Media Player

Wednesday, June 28 2017 4:00 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Sometimes I use screencaps from the WWW, but sometimes I need a specific scene or time frame longer than what I can find especially when i need to do animations, so I screencap with VLC Media Player. I used to use VirtualDub but it doesn’t work with Windows 10 and it wasn’t updated in a long time. But since I use VLC to watch my long list of Tv-shows, why not using it to screen capture?

So here What I do.

May Book Haul

Wednesday, June 14 2017 4:00 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Since February 2016 I read books with my Kobo eReader. I didn’t like it at first but I had to come to this compromise because I didn’t have any more space in my library. I’m a book addicted and I don’t know how many books I bought since last year because of discounts and promotions on the Kobo website. Thankfully I have them all in !one book”.

I bought 6 books in May here they are:

Playing with fire

In a masterly new thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, a beautiful violinist is haunted by a very old piece of music she finds in a strange antique shop in Rome. The first time Julia Ansdell picks up “The Incendio Waltz,” she knows it's a strikingly unusual composition. But while playing the piece, Julia blacks out and awakens to find her young daughter implicated in acts of surprising violence. And when she travels to Venice to find the previous owner of the music, she uncovers a dark secret that involves dangerously powerful people—a family who would stop at nothing to keep Julia from bringing the truth to light.

Bones Are Forever

I know only one book. In my defense I was on vacation and walked all day. Maybe next wee I will have more books, but I need to upload all the photos and postcards from my trip…. Busy, busy week!

I may be coming back?

So, here the thing. I am less busy right now, so I was thinking of adding more content to the site. Thing is, I have a new computer where I don’t had all my files or photoshop so I’m deciding what to do… Transfer everything is time consuming and using that old monstrosity is out of question. Moreover I’m deciding what content to add because during those years my hobbies, likes and dislikes changed pretty much (the only certain thing is that I still love reading books). So from now on I’m going to plan what I want to add here so I hope to have some new ideas from now to the end of the month.

I’m actually going on a trip at the end of May so I hope to add lots of photos after (need to dust my old “logo” for pics from my old slow computer).
