Archiving In Progress

Yesterday I was able to capture and archive 11 DV tapes. There are 29 tapes in total. Some are full, some aren’t, but in either case capturing the video is tedious as I have to capture in realtime (a 45 minute tape takes 45 minutes to capture).

Lucikly, the new computer was powerful enough to also let me archive a slew of old video game CD-ROMs and DVDs, some old software on disc, and an archive of old projects. These, plus some personal tapes were additional archives I decided to create to elimiate the possibility of loosing the data due to tape and disc degradation. Today, I continue to archive. I’m hoping everything will be finished by end of day tomorrow.

I’m also going to start researching how to properly insulate the garage doors today, which is the next house project.
