Buying a House in Austin Checklist

I have been meaning to jot down all the things I wish I knew before I bought my house, with the hope of helping someone out.  I will add to it as time goes, but here is the raw list and some thoughts/reasons:

Nintendo 3DS in 2018

With the Nintendo Switch selling like hotcakes, the one question a lot of people ask is:

Nintendo Switch 2017 Christmas Buyers Guide

Nintendo Switch 2017 Holiday Buyers Guide

I don’t know about you but I am ALL IN with the Nintendo Switch!! It took me a bit of time to actually find one, without having to pay over MSRP ($299 is the real price!), but I finally picked one up at my local ToysRus.  Since purchasing, my PS4 and Gaming PC have kind of been dormant.  There is just something about the quality of a Nintendo game that is hard for others to duplicate.

Adobe Premiere Elements 15 Tutorial – How to do Slow Motion Video

In this Adobe Premiere Elements 15 tutorial, I show you how to do slow motion video. You can do slow motion video with any video but for best results, 60fps (frames per second) video provides a smoother look. It’s a bit tricky to find in Premiere Elements 15 but the option is called “Time Remapping“. Time Remapping allows you to slow down or speed up a video clip. In this tutorial I only show you how to slow down the clip but you can easily see how you would also speed up the video footage too.
