embedded aerodynamics episode

I've embedded the episode in a web page which should considerably lower download times.

I'm done with the very first part of my aerodynamic episode of "This Old Shack". I'm pretty happy with it. The front end is new, the introduction is new and I'm also very happy with how I explain aerodynamics to the layperson. Take a look, add any comments you want to as I build this one. Now, the thing as it sits is 92 megs so if you're on a dialup....well, I'm sorry. To get the full effect of the HD and text in it you'd need a broadband connection.

I've got a lot of the concepts in it as it is right now but have to narrate a bunch of audio that goes along with it. Keep in mind that it's less then half way done. Each segment takes well over 20 gigs to do so I have to make it, save, delete, import, make it and delete again; and thats with a terabyte of space. Thank God for digital video.

Really, this is pretty difficult concept to relay to the average person; aerodynamics and hyper-mile driving techniques.

Bluehost.com, Utah.

I don't care who you are, these guys rock. Usually, I can pull 6.5k/s off my Comcast connection for testing here in SE Michigan.

Upload sucks at 128k/s. Took me half an hour to upload this one. Comcast rocks one way, sucks the other. That's Comcastic! NOT!
