This would be a great post to tie into an ad for online storage or somethign but it is not. This is a sad day for the Wired Kayaker indeed. I have been working on a video for IZEA. This video was an application to be part of the IZEA Fab 4 at IZEAFest 2008. I wanted to include some Wired Kayaker footage from the 1st 3 shows and the outtakes. I went searching through my hard drives, DVDs, CDs and both computers. The files are gone, wiped out no where to be found. I am so mad at myself for letting this happen.

I am going to buy another external hard drive to make sure that all the episodes I tape this summer never get lost like that. I can’t believe that all the photos and the raw footage is toast.

I was able to convert a youtube video to a usable video in Adobe Premiere.

I did mine a long and convoluted way but you can grab youtube videos using KeepVid. It is free.

I was able to put a little Wired Kayaker video in this Fab Four Video Submission.

    I just bought an external hard drive for this same reason. Backing up is no fun, but it’s even less fun when you lose valuable data.

    I am so annoyed with myself, I didn’t follow the standard protocols that I usually do and I lost the info, so annoyed.

    Drew, I like the video. I didn’t realize that you had so many different blogs. Keep up the good work.

  4. The BenSpark says:

    Thanks Edward,
    Yep, I have 4 active blogs, there are some inactive ones running around out there as well.

    I had a CD which was supposed to be full of photos from our family trip to Hawaii, and when I got it out the other day I found I could not access the CD at all. Luckily I found some software that was able to retrieve the whole lot.

  6. The BenSpark says:

    Sire,
    I learned that a CD is not a good place to store images for that very reason.

    I have 10gigs of photos on my HD and I can never remember where i put them… This becomes a problem when building websites for people.

    Keeping track of everything is also a big challenge. I’ve been working on a system that works best for me and it isn’t that easy.
