Episode 1 - Dark Forces

Posted: Fri 10th December 2010 in HHG2O Extra

In the unfashionable part of Brighton (actually) lived a barley evolved drinking monkey, white from lack of exposure to the weak English sun he has found that his home has unexpectedly been demolished by some bankers. Deeply disappointed by Life, the Universe and Everything he sets out to find his destiny in warmer climes.

In this Episode:

Tom leaves work, dinghy and friends for a life on the briny. Dark Forces, principally the British Airways cabin crew's Union and Michael Fish thwart him in his plan to fly across the Atlantic. Whilst at the other end their evil allies break Island Kea's mast and sabotage the autopilot. Fortunately Tom's mates let him stay on their boat whilst the new mast goes in and its off to the Panama Canal and the Pacific ocean. Despite tsunami alerts and dragging anchors he makes it though the doldrums to the Enchanted Isles in record time where the wild life completely ignores him. 

Does this sea lion look boverd?

Poster may look more dramatic than strictly necessary...... Description is in here because the lack of a plot tool Gandalf style character in any of my videos who can explain what's actually going on.

Curses and troubleshooting:

A pox on Adobe and all their creations. A curse on windows. A curse on firewire. This is all from my little fishbiten and broken digital camera. No force on earth will allow me to transfer the contents of the tapes of my video camera to hard drive of my laptop. So I'm short of source material. Also none of my video editing programs work properly, microsoft only made one decent program, windows movie maker, that's now gone, well done. Adobe's "professional" product crashes stalls hangs and won't output the video. Even after I bought more ram just for it. AVS editor jumps. The only bit that worked is the indiana jones style map - done in flash, which now belongs to Adobe - they are busy wrecking it as we speak.

Enough about my problems if you can't get the above to work try saving this mediocre player (for windoze) version of this, or try this iPhone/iPod version errr for some reason there is no this Quicktime (for appals) as yet, efforting.

A pox on the eagles, for apparently they hate youtube, and are responsible for the intro music to the hitch Hikers guide so it won't go on youtube. A pox on youtube for nor providing a decent upload system..... Basically enjoy this an extraordinary amount of effort went into it, mostly wasted, but that's Adobe, M$, Utube's fault.

*Sigh* video is very much dependent on your browser, your computer and years of petty infighting by M$, Appal etc, etc, etc. For years I just did .wmv's and let everyone one else suffer.

HTML5 is here! Can they agree on a codec? Can they hell. So I'll give you h264 for Impotent Explorer Safari, fondle Slab and iPhone. webm for firefox opera and chrome. Old Browsers should fall back on flash.
