Is Doug Pederson (aka Spectate Swamp) a real person or is he just part of the "Anonymonsy" cult?
This site portrays him as a real person and has even got a picture of him (which looks a lot like Zach Galifianakis to me). Has anyone come across this guy?

You must be in a timezone 5 days different than mine. Anyway I am never anonymous maybe monotonous. I'm anti techie and anti anti-trapper and anti-anonymous as well. So I often get banned or blocked. Oh well.

My latest activity is posting lots of old Trapline video on YouTube under SpectateSwamp. I hope that draws the anti folks out.
We want to know where they work, so we can boycott them.

Replay the final 3 seconds of a golf SWING in slo-mo - For all the Duffers

The only controllable segment when videoing a Golf Swing is the END. By turning OFF recording you enable the software to play just the final 3 seconds (the Swing) in slow motion. What a simple solution to recording and playing back a multitude of golf swings (90+ per tournament) TIMES 2 camcorders: one behind and one across.

Golf swing clips can range from 3 to 15 or 20 seconds. Not that long but if played back in slow motion. It becomes way too long. A major New Feature of this software solved that. (it plays just the final 3 secs slo-mo) Now the nearly 200 video clips are set to play. Full speed and the 3-secs Slo-Mo

Within minutes of leaving the course. That video is up and playing on a large screen while the participants are having their supper and awards. The video files are all loaded & running off a 2GB USB stick. They just loved it.

If you use your video record button like THIS there will always be something worth showing in Slo-Mo right near the end. This measure of control over LIVE video events is better than nothing.

What a wack'em smack'em screen saver This is. Random video from 2 tournaments (nearly 400 shots) Full speed and Slow-motion for the last 3 seconds. Pure action.

This app is extremely fast because no editing is required. What other action sport lends itself to this? Darts, Horse Shoes ....?

While showing those video clips after the supper; a few golfers wanted to see their swing. But at the time we couldn't do that for them. They were 2 video clips in among 180 or so. Now there is a solution.

By creating a very short video as each group approaches the Tee the program will use that as a "group break point". That will now allow for the golfer to indicate which group they were in from the tournament sheet that we had and we can replay their video and those of the rest of the players in their group. It will also allow us to play the videos random by group. So that the complete foursome will play randomly. For the Barrel racing it will randomly replay the video group for each racer. I will shut the camcorder off and turn it back on after the horse and rider round each barrel. Randomly playing just part of the run wouldn't be the same.

Even more control from the on/off switch

Here is what a respondent from another thread said:

"this is an honest-to-God useful feature. I've often wished the shuffle function on music devices could be made to work this way. The reason is that I mainly listen to classical music. Much of that music is divided into movements, with each movement being a separate track. The movements themselves are not independent, however, and in sequence form the complete work. So I'd like to be able to say, for instance, "Play all my Beethoven pieces in a random order", and have Symphony #6 followed by Piano Concerto #5 rather than Symphony #6, movement II followed by Piano Concerto #5, movement I."
