Error message of the week

An interface has too many methods to fire events from

The other day I transferred a short five minutes video clip from my DV camera. The bundled software saved it to MPG format, which I then tried to import into the Windows Movie Maker application that comes installed as standard on Windows XP.

Only it wouldn’t have a bar (frame?) of it, instead presenting me with this incredibly user-friendly (that was irony!) warning:

An interface has too many methods to fire events from.

What?! What on earth does that mean?!! How on earth are non-über-geeks supposed to know what to do when presented with that sort of nonsense error message? Poor show Microsoft!

What I did was install my copy of PureMotion EditStudio 1.5 and imported and edited my video clip in that instead. In EditStudio your interface can use as many methods to fire events from as it pleases … I presume.

Commodore Gaming – They’ve arrived!

Commodore PC in the colours of a Commodore 64

I think I’ve just found my perfect PC case design! It’s so old school and retro it is truly a marvel to behold.

(Yes, Mike, I know you think it sucks!)

As promised the new range of Commodore Gaming PCs have landed. The most expensive model, the Commodore XX — with every feature on offer — will set you back over £5,000, while the ‘cheaper’ G and GS models start at £949 and £1049 respectively.

As much as I’d love a personalized, initialled GS model once I customize it to my liking the price doubles to £2,081.04. I’d be interested to read a review — if you spot one do let me know via the comments, or e-mail me; thanks. In the meantime I’ll get saving for my next PC.
