I'm having so much fun with my video capture card. I'm like a kid with a new toy I can't stop playing with.

For those of you not familiar with this cool product, let me explain. With it I capture video from TV, VCR tapes, or DVDs and edit them. I can take video stills from the show to get far more pictures of people than I ever wanted. I can edit out the commericials completely. I can add cool video effects. I can even send it streaming on the web so that people can view it without my having to lend out one of my tapes or DVD. I can even have people download TV episodes and movies if I captured them.

I already was able to send the 6th episode of Survivor Panama over the web to my sister in New Jersey because she missed last week's episode. I showed my Norwegian friends some great American shows they will never have a chance to see unless I sent it to them. I'm able to give my friend Tony in New Jersey the last episode of Dead Like Me he can't watch because he can't get Showtime, without making the long trip out there or even paying for postage.

Of course I must be lying here about capturing copyrighted TV shows. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
