1 February, 2009

the week it was 1st Feb 2009

26th January is Australia Day, then followed by scorching hot days in Melbourne and Adelaide. Adelaide had 4 straight days of temperatures well above 40C (104F). Power grid could not cope the heat and high usage, Melbourne's public system melted down, more than 6,000 hectares were burned. (who doesn't prefer beautiful snow to heat?) Also congratulations to the safe birth of octuplets (6 boys and 2 girls) in the United States. Home and Away turns 21 on Wednesday.

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

To Don: Please note the Canadian guy in red t-shirt. He, like most people, refers snow to heat.

Personally I found YouTube's video quality is usually less than direct video download (progressive) or streaming, I know there are many people prefer YouTube. For those who prefer videos in YouTube format, here's YouTube version:

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.
