Hi David and Jim,
Beautiful -- you and Lucy are the pin ups of the month IMHO. Your story would
make a _great_ series of slides for one of those info ads we've talked about.
Anyone want to do it?
just a quick infomercial update: i've been pursuing the infomercial idea
in the last couple weeks -- Monday i finally spoke with a gentleman from
On2.com regarding their VP5 Java encoder, which loaded into my browser
and played high-quality video without any special plugins. Check it out
But it costs $20,000 for the encoder!!! The idea of being able to view
an infomercial through a browser still sounds good, so there's the JMF
(Java Media Framework) -- but downloading the Linux version (blackdown)
is currently disabled for approx 2 wks while Sun resolves some legal
issue...it says on their site:
The Vorbis/Ogg format stuff does not seem to be ready just yet, so I'm
awaiting the JMF download from blackdown, and hope it fits-the-bill.
