Andy I am glad you having a good time at K.S. House guest house, and Wi-Fi connection is good.
You should talk to Charlie about renting a room by the month which will be much cheaper for you and help you save some money to spend in Africa.
I am doing something new now, that you may find interesting.
I am taking videos with my mobile phone and uploading them to my Travel in Asia Forum
Here is a video of Steve from Emisteve, he and his wife Emi who is Japanese have been bicycling the world for 20 years. Their survival story is very interesting.
And here is a vedio of a convinience store in Japan, so people coming to Japan for the first time will know what to expect.
After you take the video with your mobile phone upload it to your laptop and convert it from 3GP to WMV format.
It loses some qulity in conversion but you get the point accross. It might be fun for you to do, because peopel do not expect to be videod with a mobile phone, and you can get some nice interviews.
Try it out on Kha San Road. Walk around with your mobile phone and get some candid interviews from the locals...
Yes, I suppose this is possible... hehehe, I did use my 12X Sony Camera, have expensive cell phone that will take the 3 ? Pixels photos waiting for me in the USA, so high quality.

Okay, there is software out there that converts 3GP to WMV but I only get 15 seconds after converting, even though I unlocked the software. The fixed to it that I found is first open the 3GP file in QuickTime pro and export it in MPEG-4 format, then open the MPEG-$ in 3GP to WMV converter and encode the file with output set to WMV.
MPEG-4 quality is not so good, will try to export as AVI, QT does not export as WMV...
I tried a few software converters 3GP to WMV like ImToo and others and they all have 15 second limit even if the 3GP file is longer.
It might be a new 3GP format.
If you find the same problem try my method.
If anyone knows of a good software to convert 3GP to WMV please let me know!
My mobile phone is Casio W51CA 4 mega pixels.
The 3GP resolution is fantastic, if I can keep the quality after conversion I can become Steven Spielberg...
