    20:06 < derobert> Kalium: have you seen http://ntp.derobert.net/gpsview/sat.php?
    20:07 < Kalium> cool
    20:07 < derobert> Kalium: you can watch the birds sail across the sky
    20:12 < derobert> Kalium: hmmm, how neat would a video of that satellite view page be....
    20:12 < derobert> Kalium: I could make one with mencoder...
    22:17 < derobert> I turned an hour worth of captures into a movie
    22:17 < derobert> all of 93K :-)
    22:17 < Kalium> cool
    22:17 < Kalium> add music
    22:17 < Pwolfamv> :/
    22:17 < Kalium> think 2001
    22:17 < derobert> Kalium: yeah, 2001 would work well. I even have a copy
    22:17 < Pwolfamv> o.o
    22:17 < derobert> But first, I need something longer than 4 seconds
    22:18 < Kalium> use more captures
    22:18 < Kalium> don't you have a bunch saved?
    22:18 < derobert> Kalium: no, I don't have bunch saved... that movie took an hour to generate
    22:18 < derobert> Kalium: however, I'm going to leave it capturing more overnight
    22:18 < Kalium> I was going to suggest week
    22:19 < derobert> Kalium: 1wk would lead to a 10-minute movie....
    22:20 < derobert> Kalium: actually, 11
    22:20 < Kalium> ok then, go for two days worth
    22:20 < derobert> Kalium: it's one capture every 30s, and played back at 30fps
    22:20 < Kalium> and add some temporal smoothing
    22:21 < derobert> Kalium: actually, when I full-screen it, it looks like a crappy old monitor... I sort of like the effect :-)
    22:21 < Kalium> heh
    22:22 * derobert checks how long his copy of 2001 is
    22:22 < Kalium> derobert, I was just thinking of that famous musical segment of thw sunrise
    22:22 < derobert> Kalium: ?
    22:23 < Kalium> the one with the dramatic classical music?
    22:23 < Kalium> near beginning?
    22:23 < derobert> Kalium: Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra, right?
    22:23 < Devolution> thus spoke zarathustra
    22:23 < Kalium> that's it!
    22:23 < Devolution> or what dero said
    22:27 * derobert finds the CD
    22:41 < derobert> OK: The correct track is 1'49"
    22:42 < derobert> aka 3270 frames @ 30fps
    22:42 < derobert> aka 27 hours 15 minutes of GPS data
    22:42 < derobert> Kalium: sound good?
    22:43 < Kalium> Excellent.

    And thus, a conspiracy was born.
