Little Fishies In Morning Light

I liked the way the light looked, streaming through a side window and into the aquarium.

Download Video:
Works with most devices: "MP4"
Works with neckbeards: "OGG"

Obligatory geeky details follow:

Video was shot on an iPhone 4, and edited in iMovie for iPhone. Soundtrack is Whirling Of Spirits by Balil.

I converted and downsized the video for h.264 platforms in Handbrake, and converted to Ogg for Firefox with ffmpeg2theora. I'm using the Video For Everybody to serve things with the HTML5 video tag. Flash fallback is untested, because I can't be bothered.

Oh yeah, the oranda is Curly, the shubunkin is Chet.

Writing entries without an HTML5 aware version of Tidy is painful. Suggestions welcome.

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




Behind all the political rhetoric being hurled at us from abroad, we are
bringing home one unassailable fact — [terrorism is] a crime by any civilized
standard, committed against innocent people, away from the scene of political
conflict, and must be dealt with as a crime… .
[I]n our recognition of the nature of terrorism as a crime lies our best hope
of dealing with it… .
[L]et us use the tools that we have. Let us invoke the cooperation we have
the right to expect around the world, and with that cooperation let us shrink
the dark and dank areas of sanctuary until these cowardly marauders are held
to answer as criminals in an open and public trial for the crimes they have
committed, and receive the punishment they so richly deserve.
- William H. Webster, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation, 15 Oct 1985
