Ironically, one of the things that makes me happier now than I was last night - apart from Ye Olde iPlayere to Ye Rescue, is having a new userpic with which to express my unhappiness. Yes, folks, it's a redscharlach special, a Cabin Pressure "rabbit of negative euphoria" userpic. Because Cabin Pressure ftw, always.

The other thing that makes me happier is...for the past few months I've had the "banned" James Bond commentary tracks from the early '90s Criterion Laserdisc releases sitting in my hard drive, and have been thinking vaguely that it'd be quite nice to get them sync'ed up with the relevant films (Dr. No, From Russia with Love and Goldfinger) so that I can properly enjoy them. Of course, typically, they're slower than the films (well, technically, I think the laserdiscs must have been...24fps - US format - whereas my DVDs are 25fps - UK format...I think that's how it would work out), so it's been quite a chore getting them to sync up properly, but I've now got Goldfinger done and saved to the hard drive as an .avi with the commentary track replacing the original film soundtrack. Now working on Dr. No (after a lot of trial and error in Audacity, I've finally got it more or less in sync - now got to replace the soundtrack in iMovie...).

On the negative side, I didn't get to bed until nearly 2:00am thanks to Mr. Auric Goldfinger's dastardly Fort Knox-related shenanigans, and am thus feeling...rather sleep deprived right now. Still, happier than yesterday, which can only be a good thing...
