Technical Issues and Tests

Part of the interesting thing about this blog is that I do not know how to blog. I am learning as I go.

I bought a flip (which is a mini-video recorder) and will be taking it with me. So...I've done some tests to try and learn how to download from it. I successfully put a video of the Vancini pets (dog-Lady and cat-Aslan) on You can view that here:

Now, I am trying to figure out how to publish video segments to the web that I don't want to put on YouTube. I have a segment of Abbie and have succesfully saved it to my desktop. I tried to join MSN Web Publishing Wizard, but the Wizard doesn't seem to like me and keeps giving me a "an error occurred when verifying your login credentials" Whatever. I better spend time with my family while I'm still here and not on the computer.

5 days to go....
look here, I might have figured it out. Here is Abbie, being Abbie. Maybe blogspot seems to not like my video, either.
