OK. Work this through with me:
Most movies shoot at about 20-30 frames per second (fps). Let's go with 24fps as a nice easy number to work with.
I'd like to make a 60 second time lapse movie of our Solstice Party tomorrow.
24fps x 60 seconds = 1440 frames.
There is 60 seconds in one minute.
3600 seconds in one hour.
We should figure on about six hours of party time.
Six hours = 21600 seconds
21600 seconds / 1440fps = a photo taken every 15 seconds.
With me so far?
I have a little Logitech web cam and Photojoj tells me that Microsoft’s PowerToys has a webcam timershot program I can download for free. I have a nice vantage point high up in the room to take shots from.
So the question comes down to this:
HOW DID I HIT A CAR ON WEDNESDAY?
Dammit. I was trying so hard to be careful. It was a narrow street and I was concentrating on NOT hitting the car coming in the opposite direction when I rubbed into another car parked on the corner in the red zone. No damage was done to either car and they were parked somewhere they shouldn't have been, but I still feel like an idiot. Especially when you consider there was a woman sitting in the passenger seat of the car NURSING HER BABY. So tell me. How'd all that happen when I can so clearly think things through and DO MATH? Shouldn't I be immune to that kind of idiocy by now?
