Having problems? The HTML5 audio/video tags are still a bit buggy.

Try changing browsers; I keep Chrome, Firefox and IE handy, one of them should work.

Or hit the refresh button (F5), that works, especially in IE and Firefox.

When playing videos allow a few seconds for a "pre-buff", that seems to help.

Over the years I've accumulated a number of videos, from flight simulators to racing simulators to trailers for my now defunct YouTube channel (Hacked by the Russians, deleted the lot then HTML5 happened). So all these videos, what to do? Slice'em, dice'em, reformat and load'em here, for our (your and my) enjoyment.

Trailer 1

Some years ago I had a YouTube channel where I placed all my little creations, but that came to a rather sudden end when the Russians hacked my channel and I deleted not only the Russians stuff but mine, including the Google page I never even knew I had. But then HTML5 came out, empowering web site designers to stream audio/video straight from our sites, thereby eliminating the need for YouTube. Yeah, it's still a little buggy but what the hell, it sort of works most of the time.

Chicago Prowlers

The video itself is super cool but I was wailing with my guitar all the way through. I never did write down the chord progression or anything approaching professional activity so this is the only copy of that little bit of musical history in existance. Yes, I know I could work it out but seems like I never have the time for actual work.

Road America

"Need For Speed: Shift" was an eleven dollar download from Amazon several years ago and I'm still playing it. It's just as much fun now as it was then, there are no plot lines, it's just me, the track, the awsome cars (where else can I race a Pagini Zonda in the Nurburgring?) and the very rude and inconsiderate AI drivers who keep running me off the track. Awesome!

Trailer 2

I can't remember exactly why I have two YouTube trailers but the reason I'm showing them first is to give anyone who accidentally stumbles across the site a little preview of what, in time, will be here. Not going to do all these at once, a couple tonight, maybe one or two a week until the ones I want here are here, and that's only if I don't make more before then.

This is a long video (9 minutes!) and usually I can find something to cut, but not this time. I liked everything in it too much to take a knife to any of it so long it is and long it stays. Further, this video also has my music, said music nowhere to be found except here in this paean to the old 727. There is a memory, hoary with age, that maybe it was a 727 that carried me to Vietnam, and then, a year and a half later, brought me home. Not so sure about that one.

Had this idea to buy one of those remote control model airplanes (this was before the quadcopter) but figured to get some experience flying before I bought it. I never bought one, you may understand why after watching this video.
