Videos

well, I now have a way to make tutorial videos, and this is really the last in a series of tests for me, this is the test of getting my video from youtube and generating a page with the video in it, its not yet working properly on the homepage – i need to put an if statement in the code to check if the file is a video instead of a picture.
it should be working on the front page as well, and the story should be ok in the categories, but the single page video is borked =P

this video is just me running an ableton session so that i could make a video of it and test everything…

New stuff

ive added a few coolthings to my site –
firstly i upgraded the wordpress and all the plugins, which went really smoothly, for once..
then i re-designed the header so that the rss feed is in the to left, and i added my last.fm radio player thingy, i need to do a bit of hacking to get it to not re-load the player every time you go to a new page, i also need to fix the front page a bit – its becoming a bit stale, also the tutorials page looks crap, i need to re-design it so that all the tutorials are displayed in the boxes at the bottom, and not all the random entries from the categories – that should only take a few minutes to do, the radio player thing will take longer.
im not to keen on the position of the search bar thingy, it could be neater.
also i need to make the searcher use google search cos its better, and i can get some money for the searches that you lot do on my site.
i found that all my feeds were crap. my hosting provider had added a bit of code to count the pageviews, but i dont use my hosting providers stats, i use google stats, so i had to remove their code, which was added at run time, it was a hidden option in their control panel that took me ages to find !
