When knowledge counts

I was happily recording events of the Beijing Olympics when I ran out of hard disk space. Only then did I realise that I had too little knowledge about the space occupied by the video MPG files. 4 days’ 5-hour daily recording ate into 35G of my HDD.

I tried to convert to other format but it took such a long time to complete that I gave doing so. What I do now is to transfer the recorded files to my DVD disks and will do the editing later because I have my daily duties to perform, leaving little time to do that.

Besides, when recording is on, I could do nothing with the files.

It is this experience that shows that knowledge really counts in doing anything.
