I respect what you tried to do here. And bless you for trying to address the people who think you must have a 4k monitor to compare the GoPro's ability to capture 4k video.

However, I don't trust your editing tools. Handling 4k video is not a normal operation for most software. I DO NOT TRUST that the software kept the video integrity until after the crop. Left me clarify...
You believe your process to be:
4k in > 4k cropped 25% to 1080p (effectively losslessly zoomed 2X) > 1080p out
I believe your process to be:
4k in > 4k automatically downsampled to 1080p > 1080p cropped 25% (lossy zoomed 2X) > 1080p out

My theory would explain why it looks the same as:
1080p in > 1080p cropped 25% (lossy zoomed 2X) > 1080p out

The only tool I'd trust here is FFMPEG. It is a command line tool. It only does what you tell it to do. You have to learn every little command option to get it to something. It's a pain, but it is trust worthy because it make no assumptions. See: http://video.stackexchange.com/questions/4563/how-can-i-crop-a-video-with-ffmpeg/4571#4571

Your USB hack was almost awesome, but you missed the obvious utility of it and instead suggested the impossible "USB extension cable". Hacking USB over ethernet enables you to hide a backup drive in your wall so that if someone breaks into your home and robs all your electronics... They don't find your backup drive. If you cut traces and run jumpers cleanly enough on your motherboard, it might also protect you in a raid by a 3 letter organization. I did this with my very first USB drive.

??? Just hide your NAS in the wall and use ethernet.

Thank you for this. I've always want to use the Japanese method but could never get it to work consistantly. This is essentially the same but has 2 huge benefits. [1] You don't have to use a flat surface (and laying the shirt, from a laundry basket, flat on a surface takes time) [2] You don't have to make that first pinch perfectly centered vertically to get it to work. That part is really critical because if it is not centered, you fail. It just makes sense to get that perfect center by folding in half.

Thank you so much for this. I took my 5 year old daughter on her first camping trip a little over a year ago and she used an old hatchet [exactly like that one] I inherited from my grandfather. The handle layers broke just like the ones on yours and I had no idea what to do with it. I kept the hatchet and look forward to doing this project with her this summer. I'm sure it will be a memory that sticks with her for a lifetime.

I added an audio track in place of the original because it was basically silent with an obnoxious hiss.

I guess I'm the only one troubled by the external power dependency.

Introduction
Believe it or not, I've never been to jail. Not even for a night. I quit going to bars by the time my fake ID was unnecessary, and I quit hacking into businesses and governments once they started paying me.

Now I just provide for my family and try not to notice politics. I get too angry when I watch how much of my income is taken from me, how it is used, and who is doing it. For the same reason, I can't bear to acknowledge celebrities.

After high school, I went to U of K but the outdated computer engineering curriculum and the seemingly endless amounts of money to be made with my internet specific skills drew me to larger tech markets. I have worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, and have settled in Atlanta.

This place is a dive, but it has a nice small town charm. If you are in from out of town and want to buy liquor that you cannot find in non-liquor stores, you will probably find it here. I was surprised to see they carried my Hendrick's Gin. It's pretty rare.

I love the online banking at this Credit Union. It is the best I've seen. (An Intuit product actually.) I am switching over from Bank of America. I will warn you about this location. It is in a Federal Building. You have to go through scanners to enter. If you have a pocket knife, you will lose it.

20lb Aluminum CO2 tank swap $18. Not a bargain, but they have a good supply so you can get a "pretty" one, which is important to home brewers.

A part of me wants to keep this place a secret, but the business is so great I also want to wish them all the success in the world. The food is absolutely top notch, and the prices are so much lower than even the lowest quality comparables from a grocery store. If you have never been to Patak, you should check their hours first. They are a family business so the hours are "different". Also, don't come if you are in a hurry. I go at the same time on the same day every few weeks. Sometimes I'm in and out in no time. Other times the line looks like communist bread line wrapped around the outside of the building and through the parking lot. But, it sure is worth it!

I don't buy alcohol very often, but when I do, I pass 4 competitors to get here. This place is the best. Great selection of craft beers, which is what I usually buy. Today I bought my first bottle of Patrón and saved $9 on the bottle as compared to 8 other stores in the area.

I was hoping to get my 20lb Aluminum CO2 tank filled close to home. This place swaps them out for $14.50 (Feb 2009). Not too bad a trade for the convenience.
