Yak shaving detail for nerds.

Yes, I'm playing around with the HTML 5 video element. I decided I really hate the YouTube and Vimeo embeds, and it's not like I serve a bunch of pageviews here, so I'm locally hosting them. I'm re-encoding the videos in various formats because Apple, Google, and Mozilla are a bunch of crybabies (and patents suck) and punted on standardizing on the sensible choice (guess) for video format.

If you're stuck on Windows XP (IE8 or older) and your IT org won't let you install a real browser these posts just aren't going to work out for you. Sorry, the world has moved on, and I'm not going into contortions/fallbacks for archaic browsers.

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

If you put tomfoolery into a computer, nothing comes out but tomfoolery.
But this tomfoolery, having passed through a very expensive machine,
is somehow enobled and no-one dare criticise it.
