Technical Difficulties (MM #3897)

The Mason Minute


The mason minute. With Kevin mason. When so much of your life revolves around technology, you have some days that are just throwaways. I call them technical difficulty days, because, well, some days are just crippled by your technical difficulties. On Friday I had to do a video interview, one of those guest spots on television, and the need of course to use my computer. Now I'm having problems with a couple of my computers. My main computer, I wouldn't even bother trying to do a video interview that's got to be for television because it's on its last legs. So I went to my backup computer, only problem is the Bluetooth dongle that's inside wasn't working. So when I got connected to the network feed, they couldn't hear me and I couldn't hear them. So I've got to do something to get that fixed. Then on Sunday, go out to do my road warrior videos. I have audio problems. I couldn't figure out if it was the camera if it was one of the three cables that are needed to be able to do the video. If it was the microphone itself, I'm still not sure what it was, but got it fixed, and then of course I have three batteries for my camera, two of which were dead. One of those weekends full of technical difficulties and there was no way to escape.
