You'll be very happy to know that I figured out how to load the software to my computer, how to connect the device through a USB cable (which actually was a little confusing because the recorder had to be on and loaded in the battery dock), how to import my videos to my hard drive, and even how to edit an 11-minute clip of "Toby Eating" down to 1 minute and 50 seconds of pure coma-inducing footage.
Now I just have to figure out how to upload my boredom masterpiece here.
(20 minutes later ...)
Okay don't time me. YouTube takes for.ev.er. You'd think I was trying to upload the entire series of "The Lord of the Rings."
(10 minutes later ...)
Aw, screw it. I'm going to get some Cheerios. Maybe by the time I'm done, YouTube will be able to handle Toby's video debut.
(12 hours later ...)
No, I did not drown in my cereal milk. After waiting impatiently, YouTube rejected my "Toby Eating" masterpiece and I promptly said, "Screw it."
But after dealing with numerous computer glitches at work, I'm home and ironically ready to try anew.
Keep something crossed.
Like a rope. In the form of a noose.
