Video Software and Windows 7

With Windows 7 I have installed Windows Essentials - Download Windows Live Essentials
This includes Windows DVD Maker - which sort of does a job of burning a DVD from a limited range of video formats.
Like it will not do handle MP4 - so essentially its Microsoft formats avi and wmv.
Also it only burns direct to DVD - I could not see how to create an ISO so I could burn extra copies later

So I've installed  DVD Flick | Free Audio & Video software downloads at
Similar features to Windows DVD Maker but you can set to burn ISO and it handles a range of formats including MP4

ISO files I would then burn with IMGBURN - which I really like for many uses - verify disks - create Music CD by setting up a CUE file and then ISO if you want several

I will keep documenting how I find Windows 7

I did try to convert MP4 to AVI using Format Factory - Download
but then realised I still could not create an ISO
and I want to do several of my video collection disk

Iran - Ahmadinejad - Nukes

I wrote this in 2007 and I am just updating today  18 Aug 2012 with his diatribe Israel a cancerous tumour: Ahmadinejad | SBS World News

Why Ahmadinejad wanted to speak at Columbia. - By Anne Applebaum - Slate Magazine

This morning Bill O’Reilly | The O’Reilly Factor -
was complaining about Columbia having Ahmadinejad there and even had a Body Language expert saying Ahmadinejad was licking his lips to look dominant and O'Reilly raved about him sneering.

I like the Slate comments and their closing has it right:-
"Instead of debating freedom of speech in Iran, here we are once again talking about freedom of speech in America, a subject we know a lot more about. Which is exactly what Ahmadinejad wanted."

Next Day Iran's President upsets New York - World -

Bloggers debate Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Columbia University. - By Morgan Smith - Slate Magazine
starts with what I saw on the news and when the audience laughed at him:
"The Iranian president got chuckles for remarking that, "in Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country. In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I do not know who has told you we have it." He also said that "we are friends of the Jews.""

I heard him also retract on his denial of the holocaust with some remarks like "well if it did happen then what is important is that it is does not give an excuse to treat Palestinians the way they do". So we are back to the "who started the violence" question. I still find Palestinian behaviour bordering on insanity. Why when peace negotiations are happening start an intifada?

and more on Iran and what Ahmadinejad being confused Transsexuals tolerated - smh

If he comes out with such obvious nonsense can we believe his 60 minutes comments re no nukes no war etc.
and more on that - BTW only Admadinejad thinks it is over
Issue of nuclear Iran over, leader tells UN - World -
