Might just compress it a little nicer first tho, 50Mb is pretty big.

altho, at 10kb/s i could be waiting a long time.

Posted:Eh, there was much more geekery going on then what got put in the video. There was alot of techy stuff being explored in the um "advanced" (and I use that term loosely wink) corner that wasn't caught on film.

Still once again I have to thank Brad for capturing the mood of the workshop so well. Everytime I watch this video I can't help but grin from ear to ear. ahhhh mem-or-ies!

Matt, it's cool with me if you upload the vid to Spherc but the call is all fNi's since he made the vid.

By US standards that was amazingly geeky. I mean, antispin high fives? The UK geeks have set the bar pretty high. I mean the fact that the girls had their tops on automatically makes it geekier than half of the US fire spinning scene.

Posted:awesome vid! although it makes me sad i don't have fun cool spinny people out here frown

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Posted:Hey..I clicked on this link from another thread and I am truly impressed. Usually these type of videos suffer from a "you had to be there" atmosphere in order to appreciate them, but this one was very watchable. Very nicely filmed and put together, cheers.

Rovo...your poi spinning never fails to astound me smile clap
