I am back

7 February, 2007

Sorry for the long hiatus. One of the things that troubled me was that it became tedious to download and post videos. I didn’t like the idea of having to upload all my commercials to one video hosting location. And it was tedious to dump the code and images onto WordPress.com.

Recently, a couple of developments made me reconsider. First, Youtube.com was bought by Google. This gave me more confidence that it wouldn’t suddenly revert to a paid subscription or simply just shut down under heavy usage. Second, WordPress.com started providing a simple coding process to paste the embedding code from Youtube into each entry. So now it’s easier for me to maintain this blog.

The only problem now is that WordPress.com doesn’t allow embedding in the RSS feed. So all RSS feed readers don’t get the link to the video as they did before. You have to click to the entry and watch the embedded video on the blog. This is wholely unintentional, and hopefully WordPress.com will allow embedded content to appear in their RSS feeds soon. Until then, please continue to leave your comments on this blog and happy TVC viewing!

Problems with Youtube.com

16 February, 2006

I’ve actually got a backlog of a few days’ worth of posts. But all the commercials I want to show are saved on Youtube.com, the online video archive service. But as some of you know, Youtube.com has been down for a few days now and there is no news when they will be back.

Delays

25 January, 2006

I’m sorry for the sporadic posting over the last week. I’ve been stuck in business pitching and office bitching. It will continue like this over the next couple weeks. Would anyone like to volunteer to be guest blogger? Write me please!

More technical problems

24 November, 2005

Since WordPress.com came out of beta yesterday, they have been having more technical problems. Now it disallows image uploading. I’ll have to hold on posting until this is fixed which shouldn’t be more than a day or two. Commercials are like crack, I know. But please relax. This blog will be back with more commercials on Monday.
