This was the opening to the most recent episode of the Simpsons, a kind of meta-homage to the countless opening videos made in Minecraft. Wanted to show Kevin, blurry because I don’t know very much about video conversion. ^_^

Internet video

I haven’t posted a video to the net and cared about it for a while. Clover has extended family that are suckers Apple users. They always miss out on the videos I post, so I went and looked up how to serve two video files. The resulting code was:

<video width="610" height="458" controls>
  <source src=""  type="video/mp4; codecs=avc1.42E01E,mp4a.40.2">
  <source src="" type="video/webm; codecs=vp8,vorbis">

I tested it in Safari and it works (and you can watch it, too). However, the two videos are visual equal in quality, but the webm comes in at 1.6 MB, while the mp4 is 19.1 MB. I don’t mind penalizing the Apple users, but I do wish I knew more about optimizing video for the web. On the other hand, that is what webm is for. ^_^

Susan was able to get a video of Clover singing with em knowing. It starts out with Clover’s rendition of the refrain from The More We Get Together. The next part is the naming of our friends, as e begins…

“…Pocoyo, Ellie, Gautham, papa, Judy, Gautham, Judy, Diana, Justin, Liz, momma, papa, Maggie, momma, maiki, momma, momma!”

I blame Kimi (who passes it to Justin).

I was thinking about this earlier this evening when I was talking to Clover. E had pulled away a chair from in front of a draw, and pulled out a pen to take its cap off. I easily reached over and took it away from em. It occurred to me that e was capable of all those actions, and that I should learn to trust Clover. So I gave em back the pen, and verbally instructed em on putting it back in the drawer, closing it and moving the chair back in place.

Clover turns 18 months old in a week. I don’t want em to ever shut up and sit down. ^_^

This is the first in a series of collected materials that I am dealing with at the moment. In the meantime, check out dual process theory.
