I accept that it's necessary to keep the video quality fairly low if you're posting a clip of your band playing, or something like that.
But it costs virtually nothing to have decent (near-CD-quality) audio, and nobody ever bothers!
You wouldn't post a recording of yourself as a 32kbps mp2 file, would you? No. So why not include decent audio tracks with your video, particularly if it's something music-related?
This has been a public service announcement, &c.

The amount of real mail, spam and viruses I've received in the last year or so.
I was expecting an upward trend in the amount of junk, but it hasn't actually changed much...
(I think the drop in August is when I stopped receiving mail for firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Ah, no, it's when we switched to Exim and started doing sender callout verification. So I'm glad that's working.

It strikes me that this'd be a useful thing to write at some point.
(Well, painful, really, but it'd be useful.)
I'm thinking of something analogous to CGI::IRC here.
What with XML HTTP Request you could probably do this fairly "easily".
What odds are you offering that if you open sourced it and put it up on fm][ that somebody would run it over regular http with no SSL before a week had passed?
Oh, pretty high, I'd imagine...
It might be useful to do that for a library OPAC system or something, though.
I guess it'd actually be a CGI/JS terminal emulator, rather than specifically an SSH client.

The first video's very neat.
The second one's hilarious.

I did think it was going a bit slowly...
Does "More legitimate use then we were expecting" really qualify as a DDOS attack?
This is debian-curiosa, so he's not being terribly serious.
