Pi Day

Sometimes, in the afternoon, I would glance at the computer clock to check the time. And I get 3:14pm. It’s just weird…

Behind the scenes

On the day I made the video, my headset failed. One minute it was working fine. The next minute, my computer failed to detect it via the USB port.

I checked the USB port itself. My webcam worked on it, so it can’t be the port itself.

I had to go out and buy a cheap microphone so I could record some extra audio. Did you know microphones are hard to get? Well, at least in Singapore. Most electronic stores stock headsets, particularly the high end gaming types.

My newly purchased microphone needed to be near my mouth before any significantly clear audio could be recorded. And that’s because I also wrapped my hand around the microphone to reduce ambient noise and focus my voice into it. I even had my index finger just under my nose so it didn’t catch my breathing sounds.

Do you record video or audio? What equipment do you use?
