Music From Bob’s Basement Part 4

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I’ve been living Murphy’s law;  If something can go wrong, it will.  This time my hard drive filled up. Steve and I were recording a song he wrote and I suddenly saw on the screen a message telling me there wasn’t any more room. Inflation is running rampant not only in government spending but, in the bytes it takes to make entertainment.  When I was young a million was a big number and I had heard of a billion but, I wasn’t really sure what multiple of a million it was nor did I think I would ever have to deal with a number that big.  When I was recording just audio I bought an external hard drive with 160 gigs.  That was probably 4 years ago.  I copied the whole hard drive from the G4 mac onto it for backup and it barely made a dent.  Everything BoScoDen recorded fit on it, all the music I created through a lifetime of creating seemed like a suitcase in an aircraft hanger.  Barely one month of video for Music From Bob’s Basement and I’m wondering how many terabytes I need.

Music From Bob’s Basement Part 3

Monday, October 5th, 2009

The premier broadcast of Music from Bob’s Basement was supposed to be October 1st but, that didn’t happen.  Bright and early, Friday morning, I called Cablevision to find out why there wasn’t any show the night before.  I was told that the computer didn’t have a destination for it when they did the season changeover; whatever that means.  They apologized and gave me the direct number of the person in Yorktown that was responsible for it.  With so many people apologizing for the mistake I have no idea what particular person screwed up.  Walter assured me that the first show will be broadcast Thursday, September 8th.
