This is Only a Test

Please pardon this little experiment as we slowly doggy-paddle towards full 1080 HD video. I hear it's great, and all the cool kids are using it, so I figured what the hell. By the way, this is the Pacific Ocean, where it crashes into the ruins of the mysterious Sutro Baths. We think it may have been a sacred site for some long forgotten race of wealthy San Franciscans, but no one really knows for sure. Enjoy, and remember, this is only a test.

Looks pretty good, but I think about 3/4 cup of afternoon sun would be a good fit.

As a web developer (Not a designer, yes we are different!) you're going to alienate some people. Not everyone has a fast connection or the means of viewing high quality video. I would strongly recommend also providing an alternative lower quality video. Which, YouTube will allow you to adjust the video quality. So, go ahead. ;) LOL

Works well for me. Looks great full-screen.

I have trouble with high def due to my cheap slow internet connection, but that one worked fine. And yes, I often have to drop the quality to avoid pauses.

I have a cable modem on a 2 year old laptop with a decent video card and this ran flawlessly with very good quality. I do agree with TBG above on alienating some people, but progress is a good thing. :-)

I wanted to give you some feedback Chef John.

Takes me back, I do miss San Fran. Been around the world and I still think it's the best city Earth has to offer.

Jeepers! I sure miss San Francisco and the ocean.

Hope you ate at the Cliff House!

Can't wait for the 1080P high def goodness to get my saliva flowing!

Love it! I'm coming to Northern Cali in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to see it for myself.

The finest Chef in HiDef!

Apparently Land's End has been a recreation destination since the days of the Ohlone, according to a tour I took with the SF Obscura society.
