I get it. Substitute any product or service logo at the end and there you have it. "We do it all for you". There, now I feel better.

Just outta curiosity...

How come I can never get Vimeo vids to run correctly (i.e., is it local resources, or bandwidth?)

I've pretty much given up on anything posted via Vimeo as a result. FWIW, I'm running a 3-year-old Dell flaptop via cheapest DSL from Sonic.net. Everything else can be made to go, but Vimeo never.

WTF?

Uhhh.....duh.

Just realized that the default setting on those vids is HiDef, which (a) can be turned off because (b) I don't wanna pay for that much bandwidth just to watch hip vids. And then it aaallllmmmmoooost runs.

I'm here for you Rob. I've swapped the Vimeo out for a YOUTube.

No sit back and enjoy the bullshit shower.

Hey, that sounds like Sam Eliot's voice. That deep, raspy baritone just reeks of testosterone. Hell, you can sell anything with that voice and some emotive pictures. At least that's what Madison Ave. pitches.

I don't know- I found the video profound, and strangely moving. It made me question my core values, and caused me to re-think some paradigms. I believe I am a better person for having seen it.
