Didn't go to bed early enough last night. When Fran came home from badminton I wasn't sound asleep, so it was well past 23:00 before I got some shut-eye. So .... feeling not too awake right now. And there is so much to do at work. Have to finish the Opera 3D model of the LS ... not all very easy.

Will go to Henk & Debby tonight. Deb has a non-functional crosstrainer, she asked me if I could have a look at it. Unfortunately I can't carry too many tools, but I put my old Leatherman in my smaller green bag. Has been on my mind earlier: what if a bolt and nut combo is untight on my bike ? just having a Leatherman Wave doesn't cut it then ... The stupid and useless things I worry about. Penny wise, pound foolish.

I was looking for a nice way to embed video's in this site. But didn't really succeed. I thought there would be some easy configurable module with which to do this ... but no. I think the easiest way is to use YouTube or similar. I'll have a look what kind of formats these sites can swallow. When I rotate an avi file and save it in VirtualDub I end up with a file with some kind of encoding (I think I've to install some more codecs for avi files ... ) which is a bit obscure.

Ok, this is with video.google.com:

Not bad, not very good either ... and what happens when google pulls the plug out of this site in favour of the newly acquired YouTube ? ... The register pages at that site weren't working just now ... try again lator.

I'll talk to Gert-Jan about my sloppy report. I've to resolve this in the coming couple of hours.
