    Before I even got on, I began thinking I use a lot of Youtube Vid URLs just for fun.

    I didn't realize it was a problem for some on the forum. I don't like flash anymore than the next person either. I will refrain in the future, if it contains flash. How would you know it uses flash to play it, is it embedded?

    Edit: Never mind just right click the video area of the Video. It states it used Flash Player 11 at the bottom

    A classic example of something that starts out as just a hobby, then gets carried away! :cool:

    I've heard about this recreating park in Germany for some time now. They have released a video diary with the building procedures. The automation level of the project is simply amazing.

    This is in my list of dream jobs.

    Thanks, I enjoyed seeing that. Typical German precision!
    Last year in Hamburg, we lined up for the show. A 1 hour lineup to get in, a half hour orienteering session, than a lineup to buy tickets for the next day or the day after! We did not see it, so thanks again for the link! E

    My neighbor..., bought some strings of cheep chinese " icicle" lights, which the connections corroded all to blazes 'cuz he didn't protect them...

    He trashed them, I jumpered out the corroded plugs to discover all the leds would still light

    I sat one night stripping white leds :D must have a couple thousand - and they all work :eek:

    I gotta stop this packrat routine !!!:rolleyes:
