, posted: 6-Aug-2008 10:40

(with links to live video stream)- Updated - added linux compatible links...

At present the team at Te - Papa are moving the colossal squid,  Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni, from its
preservation tank to its purpose built display tank,

they have a live video feeds of the progress here:

This video is available in several qualities:
> Dial-up with a slow modem and cell phone connections (28 kbps)
> Dial-up internet (56 kbps)
> Slow broadband (128 kbps)
> Average broadband (384 kbps)
> High speed broadband (2 Mbps)

More information over at the Te Papa Squid Blog.

As this particular format is typically not that friendly to those of us not using windows,

the Linux (and other non-windows OS) direct stream connections are

384kbps here: mms://

and the

2megabit stream here: mms://

if you are not sure to do it, and you are running something like Ubuntu, the easiest way is to bring up a console and type in / paste the following command:

mplayer mms://

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
