Movin’, movin’! (If somebody gets the reference)
I spend 5-8 hours a day on my smartphone and my computer, mostly for reading. It is disruptive to my eyes and sleep cycle so, it was a long wish of mine to have a dedicated ebook reader or e-ink device. In Indonesia though, it is not even have a niche, I’ve never seen anybody with one until I saw one of my upperclassman with 2nd gen Kindle Basic. There are some seller selling ebook readers here, but they sell with very high profit margin so no, no.
I like to subscribe to podcast and Youtube Channel. Usually I download the video at uni and watch it back home without internet connection. Before I know Miro, my routine can be written as these:
Subscribe to channel through RSS
Video links piled up on RSS
Go to uni > internet
Skim through RSS, download interesting videos from channel using IDM (exhausting process: play one video, download with IDM, choose dimension, rinse and repeat)
It’s a nice way to download one video, for many videos though, it is long and tiring process. I already go through google and forum recommendation to find the best software to quicken this process and haven’t gotten satisfactory result, until I find Miro.
Surfing the web and having interest in typography casually, other than serif and san serif there are also a line of fonts categorized as handwritten fonts. Being “handwritten”, of course basically it had to be started as handwriting. Have you ever thought about making your own handwriting as font? Making digital diary seems more real, making digital card more personal, making your cheat sheet seems like it’ s handwritten (or is it just me?)
Before, I’ve told you about my new project, the BahasaIndonesiato…. In that blog, I upload video of translated-to-English Indonesian song. Anyway, because of that project, I learned how to do subbing and timing a video so that the lyric can follow the video so that you can read the lyric and sing-along (and learn Indonesian).
There are so many ways on doing my intended aim (hardsubbing video). In the end, I choose one way to do it, the one that I feel most comfortable with. I do think that it takes a roundabout way to do that (and I don’t actually recommend you to do it), but I do feel that I want to share the way (and read this again in case I forget the steps, hehe.)
