Today in the Magic Thermos (TM), home spiced coffee with ginger, cardamom and vanilla. It's delicious... and possibly the best thing about today.
Yeah.... It's one of those days.
And it won't upload.
For some reason, iMovie is acting up. I have done nothing different while editing this episode. The movie simply won't render. Fifteen odd minutes into the upload, I get the failed message. This used to happen relatively frequently with iMovie before an update patched things up. It's been running so smoothly since, I didn't give a thought to it as I hit the share button last night and let it do its thing while I slept.
And now nothing I do will get the frakkin' thing to upload properly. I can't even merely export it as a file and upload manually. It won't export. I've tried shutting down iMovie and starting it up again. I've restarted the computer (so yes, I've tried turning it off and on again).
I'm a little freaked out about it, as I've had to stop trying to make it upload/export and head to work. I've left it in the very capable hands of the Amazing Flatmate, but I'm not sure even she could do anything about it at present. I don't know what to do. I'm stressed because I hate being late with things. I'm stressed because it's a damned good episode and I don't want to lose it. I'm angry at the computer, at myself (that tends to be a default whenever things go wrong), at iMovie, at YouTube, at life.
At least I have good coffee, I guess.
There's nothing much I can do, I suppose. If any of you have experienced this problem before, I'd love to hear how you fixed it. Let me know, so I don't pull all of my hair out today.
Oh, and if that's not bad enough, I forgot to bring my shoes for running this evening.
AND I forgot to bring the book I'm supposed to be reading for this weekend's filming of Nights at the Round Table. Wow. I'm just full of suckage today!
Well, that's enough complaining for one day I think. Let's move onto better things. Today my usual schedule resumes. I'm off to learn Welsh and then I'm off to write. If I'm really lucky, there won't be any angry tears.
What are your plans for today?
