Ventures Fan Fest / Heavy rains coming your way Philadelphia
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:19:12 pm »
I do hope everyone had a great time and gets home safe and sound.  A hurricane is landing down south and it's predicted to quickly run right on top of Philadelphia as it dies - lots of wind and rain!

A flash drive with The Ventures logo sounds cool, I'd buy one for sure!~ Make it 128 gigabytes capacity as my Ventures digital collection is nearly 50 gigabytes and I can then add some videos to it.

Original size was 2448 X 3264!

Now 640 X 853, much more manageable!

Download the free program Irfanview here:
You can easily take an original picture and 're-size' to fit any dimensions or restriction.  I use this desktop application every day in my online work.

Flash drive?  Just take your DVD, put it in a computer drive and copy the VOB files to it.  Newer SMART TVs can read those, so I see no sense selling USB drives.  I also see a security problem as well.  Depending what machine it was copied from, there is the risk of malware.  A hidden file named autorun.inf can cause older unprotected systems to automatically play the flash drive in your computer and install software or worse. Flash drives - don't take this risk, however slight.
TIP:  Do you have The Ventures music and videos on your SMART phones or tablets? Get a inexpensive Chromecast (versions 1 or 2), made by Google.  For $35 or less, you can broadcast from your phone or tablet to your PC from across the room, remote control.  You can also get a cheap ($35-40) discontinued Google Nexus Player and hook it up to your SMART TV.  It has storage and is portable!
I work in Computer repair and test Apps and hardware for a living - The Ventures music by my side at all times!

These days with my eyesight not well, I test apps, you know?  Those programs you see on iPads and Android mobiles?  The latest one really became a real job.  The entire app is co-owned and sponsored by a popular act (been allot in the news lately).  Open the app, you see groups with very imaginative names with all the same instrumental track - Boom, Boom, Boom and lots of electronic base with guys/gals talking poetry in a monotone.  It's very hard on my ears, but I have to listen and fiddle with the controls to see if the app is working correctly.
I asked a relative of the younger generation about some of these 'artists'.  Sure, they know them and even know how to pronounce their strange names!  Do you like them or remember any of the actual music of their songs (I ask) - nope!  I'm afraid these groups will not be remembered for their music but for scandal and showmanship.
I think teenagers of today will grow up remembering and loving the music their parents and grandparents listened to, not some pop styles of today.
