Oh good god :shock:

so apparently in making a 30 second video in source filmmaker, leaving the settings at default will let you render the video (IE convert it into an actual video file) in 720p high definition in about 10-12 minutes. BUT if you adjust the focus on a couple shots so that the foreground is sharp and the background is blurry, will bump the render time from 12 minutes, to 7 hours....... :?

Batty I'm so sorry you're still having those problems. :( I can't believe your doctor said "What do you want me to do?" :? How about his JOB? Isn't he supposed to be the one to suggest treatment? It sounds like you need a CT-scan. If the second doctor thinks you have a serious head injury, which certainly makes sense, did he suggest doing a scan?

Oh Batty, if only you had said 'dance the dance of your people for me' when he asked you what you wanted him to do! At least you would have got a good laugh out of the whole mess.

He mentioned sending me for an MRI scan, but wanted blood tests done first. My next appointment is on Tuesday, so I'll have to wait and see if he's changed his mind!

Thanks for all of your wishes, peeps! :D

I got a minor annoyance at the moment. I keep getting childish text messages every couple of days and sometimes a couple of times a day saying things like: "i can see u haha".

I haven't taken the bait as I'm sure this idiot is trying to get a rise out of me, so I'm just ignoring them. It's their credit they are using up playng stuid games. :roll:

If you have a jazzed up and funky phone, Tony, you may well be able to block the incoming number.
