Part of this whole “new camera” deal is that the movie files it produces are much larger than those of the old camera, and therefore take a lot longer to upload. So if you’re reading this post at any reasonable hour on the 15th that’s why you’re seeing a dead video right here:

Of course if you’re up late or crawling through the archives or whatever, you just see the video. And all’s well.

      @Balrog: It does it fullscreen, widescreen, this resolution or that, on a boat and with a goat. I just don’t know what the problem is.
