Efficient won Melbourne Cup, the week it was, 11 Nov 2007

Here's the regular The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in the usual H.264 format. Why do I use H.264 format? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.

The Week It Was
(Click the screenshot above to watch the video clip)

Efficient won Victoria Derby and Melbourne Cup in consecutive years. A high school shooting in Finland resulted 8 people killed. The shooter, Pekka-Eric Auvinen, killed himself. The Reserve Bank raised interest rate to 11 year high. The first time during elections. Another 0.25% increase takes the official rates to 6.75%, mortgages to nearly 9%. (not in the video: John Howard said he's sorry for the interest raise. The next day he stated that “sorry” was not “apologetic”, he was just feel sorry for the interest rate raise, but not sorry for it. This is the same “sorry” he used for Aboriginals few years back.)

H.264QuickTime 7The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.

Here's the YouTube version:
