Michael...

He brightened up my dull village friendless teenage years.
I started learning English to understand his songs and knew some of them by heart without any teachers. This passion changed my life and influenced my career, having started because of him.
Thanks to him I'm not afraid to feel like a child now, I also missed a big part of my childhood and always wanted it back.
He loved all the children before having his own, I understood his wisdom only after my baby was born.
I met good friends among his fans.
I first surfed the Internet in 1997 to find stuff about him. It turned out that I also found love and a whole new universe.
I've been his fan for 16 years, the bigger part of my life.
I would've been a different person and would've had other people around me if he wasn't there.
Nothing good ever comes easy
All good things come in due time

If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

I believe you and I
Could never really say goodbye
Wherever you may be
I'll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me

And we are here, for all to see --
To be the best that we can be.
Yes, I am here....
Because you were there.

You are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
Forever, Michael.

Поворот видео

Долго искала, нашла. Фотик снимает видео, иногда приходится его наклонять. В итоге имеем повёрнутое изображение. При повороте на место приходится перекодировать и качество сильно страдает, либо размер увеличивается совсем уж неприлично. И вот решение: VirtualDub, фильтр rotate, compression - ffdshow video codec, encoder - mjpeg, quality 100%. Размер увеличился несущественно, качество мне понравилось. Плюс в VD можно поставить файлы в очередь и потом запустить общую конвертацию.
