not being able to watch youtube and the like, so posting a link to such a movie is somewhat stupid.

If you notice the link isn't a youtube and I selected low bit-rate movie and just tested this on a 1024Kbps connection so it should stream well for even those moaners.

Still, even if it doesn't they should be used to pause-buffering anyway so no bid deal.

I don't care if thier connection is slow. Mine's not.

Happy christmas.

Took  2 min 10 sec to load that 14 min video here, so the buffer did not get whacked a lot. The secret of my success is to always use a left-hander's  old mouse so that the gestures are softened and don't snag the tubes. This lets the internet flow smoothly without any turbulent flow whatsoever..

Laminar flow for faster web experiences and less spam.

I managed to watch several youtubes when I was stuck at mums yesterday without incident. Didnt try vimeo HD stuff since her computer hates it at the best of times, but youtube was a hell of a lot better then last time I was there.
