    Picked up a 2nd hand digital/video camera yesterday thought I'd give it a try out.

    YouTube

    It's only 1 minute long and is pretty naff but I really wanted to see
    if my youtube account was still working. (and try out the camera.)

    Still working on a youtube clip for the blog. Should have it posted
    tomorrow night. (giving myself a deadline gees me up.)

    I don't like doing the screen grab from Chessbase or any other program,
    it is too limited. It's what everyone else does. I try to be different.

    So each screen is copied and saved and then played back through a
    slide show which moves along a key press at a time.
    The knack is saving them in the right order.
    The Blog one so far has 130 pictures.

    What the world needs is a bog standrd PGN player that allows you
    to add flashing squares, arrows and other gizmo gadgets like being able
    to display picutres/cartoons inbetween the game.

    What opening am I playing in that vid?

    Hi Woody.

    The link seems OK, other are getting it.

    That is my son's room, it's a spare room at the moment, but he'll be back.
    I should have put a teddy bear on the pillow and told him bedroom was on youtube.
    That would have been a laugh.

    I was going to film it in the kitchen like Phlabbs but Mrs GP would not allow me.

    I was very excited when you picked up your b pawn, but was very disappointed when you decided against it.

    And a poster of the world's most famous crosswalk on the wall.
