Sony Vegas Pro Crashing caused by bad media indexes

Jul 10, 2021 by Paul White

Recently my son was editing some of his videos for youtube.  He came to me with a problem. Vegas was crashing.  It would lock up and then force close.  I suspected It could be the Video card, or maybe a corrupt system file.  Turns out it was just a corrupt index.

As Stores reopen, get ready for a huge upswing in the economy

Apr 28, 2020 by Paul White

One thing I have learned is whatever the TV talking heats are pushing as part of their fear agenda, almost never happens.  They simply state theoretical bad case senerios in an attempt to keep viewers engaged.  But the truth is COVID-19 is not like anything they have ever seen before, and what they are predicting is not going to happen.  Here is my prediction for what will happen.

Solo mining for higher profits with ALT coin crypto mining.

Nov 25, 2019 by Paul White

As a hobby I mine crypto currencies.  After all when your work station has a couple of high end GPUs why not?  Of course those of you in the know, obviously know I am not mining bitcion, but rather one of the hundreds of other ALT coins that are still minable with GPU, and haven't been taken over by the ASICs... yet..  Forever I have done pool mining, but recently I decided to give SOLO mining a try, and now I will likely never go back.

Sony a99ii Overheating during 4K recording possible fix

Oct 6, 2019 by Paul White

When Sony's A99ii Full Frame DSLT camera came out it had leading specs that people like me drooled over.  But unfortunately it seems that Sony never intended pros to use this camera's 4K video recording for more than a minute of video.  I guess they want us to fork out the big bucks for a dedicated Video Camera, rather than have the novelty of an all in one Photo / Video machine.  After several years I think I have found the cause of the overheating, and its all in the batteries.

Dreamweaver cs3 crashes when opening file, solved msvcr80.dll

Sep 14, 2019 by Paul White

I was about to reinstall my entire OS to fix this issue, then one last attempt to determine the cause and I found it.  If you recently started having problems with Dreamweaver CS3 or any version for that matter, crashing when you attempted to open certain files, then I found the cause.  Its in your code, not Adobe's

What The Yang Freedom Dividend will do to the economy

Jul 17, 2019 by Paul White

I am a huge fan of Democratic Candidate Yang.  A real Tech guy that gets it,  But I am not such a fan of his $1000/month per person Freedom Dividend.  If he gets elected and actually gets this thing through the House and Senate ( unlikely ) here is what it would do to the economy.

If you Mine Crypto with your Desktop PC Read this

Jul 2, 2019 by Paul White

If you have 1 or more beefy graphics cards in your desktop PC you may be tempted to mine crypto when you are not wasting your life away playing games bring productive.  However there are risks to running your GPUs at full throttle for hours, days or even months on end.  Even if you throttle your GPUs so they their temps don't go over a certain level, the other components inside your PC case may not be up to the task.

Normally when a web server goes down you would think its from something major, like a power outage, or a disk failure.  In my case it was a failing 2.5" 2TB WD Green drive.  In case anyone else has failing server, this might help you.

Crypto Mining vs, ATT Stock Dividends

Sep 4, 2018 by Paul White

Over the holiday Weekend I got a chance to spend some quality time with family.  The topics ranged from cars, to investing.  On the investing topic I shared my thoughts on crypto, which is always a huge risk being most people not in crypto have a hard time getting their heads around the concept.  My Uncle was more for slow and steady investing using high value stocks that pay dividends.  He had a great advice, but ultimately the returns from componding Dividents from ATT Stock doesn't come anywhere close to crypto.  I decided to work the math to give an example.
