Come Monday...BlogDumps and Other Blessings

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

Last Monday, I was in [a much different mood].  For I was mired in the midst of a deep dark depression over not knowing what to do about getting the RSS feed for here working again, amongst [some other things].

Yeah, “Oh ye of little faith.”  For I cannot even start to count how many times I have honestly believed that I had finally came to the end of the amount of grace afforded me, only to have it proven that our Heavenly Father’s grace truly is immeasurable.

Some of that proof came through Wolf and Trina over at [BlogDumps].  For they came to my rescue in a very personal way when I was having trouble uploading videos that I had made with my [Windows Movie Maker].  The solution turned out to be converting my [.wmv] to [.flv] through the use of the [Any Video Converter] program.

Backing up a little bit, I had felt like I needed to start making videos because of mistakenly thinking that one of the “improvements” that Google had made to its Blogger platform made it no longer possible to embed an MP3 audio player (provided by BlogDumps) with a song that I would feature each week on a [WhiteHeart Wednesday].  As it turned out, that “improvement” had only made it to where the audio player no longer showed up on the Compose page of a post, but by the time that was realized, I was already hooked on the idea of making videos that would make [Steven Spielberg] and [George Lucas] green with envy.

Okay, I am not quite to that level yet, but considering how technically-challenged I naturally am, I am very pleased with what has been produced so far.  You can find them all [here].

By the way, have you noticed that the all of the links are now opening in a new window?  You can read about how that blessing came about [here].

Now, there is just one more thing that needs to be resolved:
