Furry Frustrated!

I am furry frustrated. Poor Mom has been helping me late into the night the past few nights working on a valentine for Kimo. She doesn't have all the cool software programs to do what I really wanted to do, but we made what I thought was a very nice Powerpoint show. Then Mom recorded herself playing fiddle for the music sound track into her I-Pod (she has an older one with a voice recording function). The plan was to save the Powerpoint as a Quicktime movie with her sound track. We tried this with an MP3 file we had and it worked cool. But we have run into two BIG problems. First, YouTube doesn't recognize the Powerpoint movie as a regular Quicktime move, and we don't have Quicktime Pro to save it as a regular Quicktime movie.

And second, Powerpoint doesn't recognize the wav file the I-POD made. So she recorded herself onto her minidisc recorder (it sounded much better anyway), and was going to make a CD from her stereo system, then rip that as an MP3. But Dad changed all the wiring on the stereo system and it won't work! Mom is in tears.

So I'll probably send Kimo the powerpoint movie without the sound track (it really isn't as nice without it), so at least he can see it. But I guess I can't enter it into Skeezix's contest. And I'm sorry I haven't been around to everyone's blogs...this has been taking so much time! I'm going to go eat some more bugs......

UPDATE: Mom was able to figure out how to convert the wav file to an aiff file, and was able to complete the Powerpoint-derived Quicktime movie. It still won't upload to YouTube. So if you would like me to send it to you so you can see it, leave a comment with your email address. Its about 12MB.
