Re: He is Risen! - 03/23/08 12:10 PM

Thanks, Dave. My dad died on Easter Sunday in the year 2000. A story that he didn't tell to many people [I think he only told three people about it; his beloved sister Mary, his wife (my step-mother), and me] was about the time he saw Jesus. He was lying on his deathbed at the veterans hospital. The doctors had said that he didn't have long to live so anyone who wanted to see him before he died should be called. I was about 10 years old at the time. My Aunt Mary came to pick me up to take me to see him at the hospital for one last time before he passed away. I remember praying and praying to Jesus for my Daddy to live that night as I was saying my prayers. Later that night, my dad said that Jesus appeared to him and told him that it wasn't time for him to die yet, because he still had work to do here on earth. The next day, the doctors were amazed because he made a complete recovery from liver failure! My dad told me that he didn't tell people about it because they would have thought he was nuts. But Dad lived another 36 years after that, to the age of 70. Then he died on Easter Sunday morning. <br><br>After his miraculous recovery from liver failure, Dad went back to college and studied psychology and counseling and spent his spare time volunteering as an AA counselor and helped save many lives during those extra years Jesus gave him to "get his work done". He also went back to work as a bus driver, and won awards for having a safe driving record. <br><br>The nicest thing about those extra years he was granted is that Dad got to see my son and our home here on Cape Cod. He said that he could "die a happy man" shortly before his last curtain call. <br><br>Just some Easter memories... <br><br>

You're welcome, Dave. Easter is a bittersweet day for me. The Easter before my Dad passed away, he was here at my home for Easter dinner. He was already quite ill from cancer by that time, so when we realized he was missing, we were alarmed. We looked all over the house for him, and couldn't find him. That's when I went outside to go looking for him and found him looking at my empty vegetable garden on the side of the house. He was smiling, looking around at our little house and yard. That's when he told me that he could die a happy man. I'm sure he's with Jesus now because he got his work done. <br><br>Happy Easter! <br><br>

Re: He certainly is! - 03/23/08 03:05 PM

hmm, I believe that last time the sound file played alright on the system of a few other guys as it did on my own but for some reason not yours. The trouble is that because of the issues I have with Apple over my .Mac account I've been using photobucket for file-hosting but it doesn't seem to work very well with QT. So this time I produced a QT movie in Keynote which contained a slide show of words with embedded music but because the graohics didn't render properly on the forum I made the file invisible so only the music would play. It's working fine on my system but if its causing problems for you or anyone else, obviously I'll take it down.<br><br>km<br><br>

Re: He certainly is! - 03/23/08 06:30 PM

Ahhh. Firefox doesn't recognize Keynote presentations. Did you use embed? Maybe a link to the file would work. I have iWork '08 installed. I could dl the file and then play it in Keynote.<br><br><br>

Re: He certainly is! - 03/23/08 06:46 PM

Yup - I encountered the same problem in Firefox and Netscape - so it looks like it's Safari compliant but not Mozilla. I tried embed which didn't work so the final version linked direct to the file. <br><br>km<br><br>

Hmm...It's just a QT.mov (about 8 MB).<br>Do the storage places you use deal OK with spaces in file names? Comcast is funny about those. Also, the code you were given to paste has some stuff about "text" as a file type. That didn't seem right to me.<br><br>Anyway, there were more efficient ways to do what you're after.

Re: He certainly is! - 03/24/08 02:21 AM

Pretty good fusion of the files - thanks!<br><br>I believe spaces are alright at Photobucket although the results don't play in Firefox as became clear in the thread. The problem at Photobucket is that they don't host mp3 or other discreet sound files so one always has to upload them in a movie which is why I went via Keynote. But then there were other problems that stopped me getting the results I wanted which was to create a slide for each verse with transitions timed to the music. <br><br>It worked in Keynote and exported fine to QT but the sound disappeared at Photobucket which for some reason only plays sound as part of a movie of no more than one slide! So I did that which was the final version but then there was too much text on the page which was too small for viewing. So I mangled the code to hide the graphics and player and commanded 'autoplay = true' to get the sound and then posted the words up on the forum instead! <br><br>Anyway, thanks for your help.<br><br>km<br><br>

Re: He certainly is! - 03/24/08 09:05 AM

OK...I finally decided to open this thread in Safari.<br><br>I was expecting to see something different. No alert about plugins, but all I experienced was a autoplay audio. Is that what everyone else is getting?<br><br>But, now that you explain about Photobucket not hosting mp3 files, I suppose what you tried to do makes sense. But I still don't quite understand why the audio file worked in Safari and not in Firefox. Does your ISP allow you some free server space? Does it allow you to host files there which will display elsewhere?<br><br>Do you have QuickTime Pro, KeyMaker? What about iMovie? You could do what you want in either of those....except the visual verse transitions in QTPro...don't think that'd be possible.<br><br>Let's try this just for gits and shiggles...I have Keynote 2.0.2, but I've never used it. ZIP up the folder of files you used, plus your finished Keynote file, and send it to me. I'd like to have a look at it, and see what can be done about exporting as a QT movie that works. <br><br>Also...<B>copy/paste the code that Photobucket generates</B> for you to paste into the forum, into your email message. I'd like to look at that as well.<br><br>These are the kind of puzzles I like figuring out. If and when I get it sussed, I'll post instructions so your next attempt will be successful.<br>=============================================================<br><B>Post Script:</B> I just saw that you sent me the original QT movie, which I'll have a look at.

Re: He certainly is! - 03/24/08 04:30 PM

hmm it played on my system, pruesumably because there's a link to the original file so that's why it seemed to disappear when uploaded to Photobucket. But as I said before the sound seems to travel alright with a movie thats limited to just one slide so it's as if it can;t survive transitions. I've zipped the files and emailed them on, thanks,<br><br>km<br><br>

I've had the same problem ever trying to get Keynote to do what was possible with Adobe Persuasion - seems particularly half-assed at handling layers and transitions. It's got a few great benefits though like drag and drop and Web links.<br><br>km<br><br>

(and gimme a beer, your furniture arrangement sucks, and sorry about dragging my muddy boots across your new rug)"</font></B><p>So I'm having this big weekend-long party at my house; It's something we do several times a year. I've invited a whole bunch of my old friends from college. We've known each other forever. We know each other's style of humor. We know who drinks what, or if they don't drink at all, or if they're taking a break from it lately. We know who just got a new job; and who now hates the boss he thought was so brilliant when he first took the job two years ago. We know what concerts we've been to see and what kind of music we like. We know what kinds of hobbies we each enjoy, outside of our chosen professions.<br><br>We—my friends and I—have a lot of shared history. We have little in-jokes and running gags that probably aren't funny to anyone who doesn't know their contextual birth and evolution. All the people at the party have known eachother for so long, that their significant others don't even bother coming to the party because they know they'd feel like the odd-man-out. We get gross and disgusting sometimes, but because we know each other so well, we know how to take it most of the time, and understand the spirit in which it was intended. Sure, some of us just don't get along all that well. It's bound to happen in a large group -- sometimes people just clash. But, for as long as we've known each other, those clashes are just little holes in a favorite sweater. Sure, we could get rid of the sweater, but, shoot, nothing wrong with a few holes when we only wear it for knocking about the yard on a cool autumn day.<br><br>Maaaaan, I tell ya, this party is SWINGIN', Guys and Dolls. The cops are bound to show up as they always do when we have a weekend like this. But we really don't cause a whole lot of trouble, and nobody has ever committed any serious crimes or been cited for much beyond disturbing the peace. Those sorts of things just add to the rich tapestry of stories we all have to tell and exaggerate about the next time we get together.<br><br>Now, a few doors down the street, I have a neighbor. He's lived down the street for quite awhile now, but we really only nod at each other in passing. We're cordial enough, but lets's face it, he's just a guy I share a street address with. Sure, we occasionally have to trade mail when the rural delivery driver screws up. He has a hedge trimmer I borrow once every August; he comes over for my snow blower when we get the our yearly blizzard.<br><br>Well, this year, my neighbor decided he was going to come over to the house during the weekend blowout. He pops in through the wide-open front door and strides down the entry hall to the kitchen. After cracking open a nice bottle-conditioned Belgian hefeweissen from the refrigerator, he mixes up a double Bombay and tonic—Joe Pesci forbid he'd leave one hand free when introducing himself. My two-fisted neighbor saunters out onto the back deck where all of us are telling old stories and generally yucking it up. People barely pause in their conversations, and only glance momentarily at the new guy. Everybody figures that somebody must know him.<br><br>My neighbor walks up to the first knot of people who give him even more than a cursory glance. Immediately, he launches into some off-color jokes; he's the one who laughs the loudest when he's finished telling them. He then proceeds to tell everybody in the group that he's a good friend of mine, that we've been neighbors for years and years.<br><br>He finds his reception from the first group a bit icy, so he moves on to another group of people—those gals, over sitting around the picnic table. He spills a little out of both drinks as he clumsily takes a seat.<br><br>"HEY! I'm the neighbor from down the street and I've known the host for a long time and he and I are great friends and hey were you talking about some joke with pants what's that all about then well I've got a good one about knickers and it goes like this..."<br><br>The gals roll their eyes at each other, just a wee bit, so they are the only ones who see them do it. They're polite for awhile, but soon one of them speaks up.<br><br>"Who the hell are you again?"<br><br>"I told you: I'm the neighbor from down the street and I've known the host for a long time and he and I are great friends..." He trails off as he sees me coming over.<br><br>"Phos, I just don't understand what's going on. You and I have known each other for years, but your friends seem like a bunch of frickin' jagoffs. I'm trying to fit in. I'm getting loosened up here on some booze, just like everybody else. I'm crackin' jokes, real friendly like, but they just don't seem to like me very much. I don't understand it. Could you please tell me: What am I doing wrong?"<br><br>"Hey neighbor," sez I. "Remember the time where that guy does that thing, and then the other guy tries to fix it and explain what went wrong, and then the first guy realizes what a jerk he was and smacks his forehead?"<br><br>"Ummm, no," says my neighbor. "I must not have been there."<br><br>"Exactly."</OL><br><br>"This is not here."
