Never let a zombie pick your brain

The DVD which Costco's service transferred from 8mm home movies was not very good. Most of the framing was off, and the gate was filthy. None of it was quite in focus. Both of these are easy to fix if an actual human sets up each transfer, but it has the earmarks of "shove it in the machine and forgetaboutit". Not bad enough to ask for a refund, not good enough to ask them to do it over. So I'll try a place in Texas which advertises that they only do 8mm, and they sound very proud of their work. And it costs less than Costco, with a higher quality bitrate. This weekend I'll box up the same two reels and see what they do with them.

No jury duty today - it's furlough day at SC Superior. Need to check after 5 for tomorrow.

Must scoot. Team meeting. First one in a month or more for various reasons.
