I went to the Waratahs vs Blues game a couple weeks ago. I have delayed posting something about it as I was waiting for Google to approve my video of Lote Tuqiri scoring a try off a quick tap from a penalty.
Lote Tuqiri caught the Aucklanders napping when he took a quick tap and raced 20 metres to score out wide in the 32nd minute to give the Waratahs a 14-point buffer.
I wasn’t able to capture it, but after scoring the try, Lote had flung the ball over his head in celebration of scoring. The ball ended up landing in my mate’s lap about two seats to my right!
NSW eventually won the game with a record-breaking 43-9 victory over the Blues at Aussie Stadium.
We found this flash based game online called The Maze. In this video we tested the maze out on an unsuspecting visitor to our office. If the boss dropped by, our excuse would be that we were “performing some usability tests”. Although I don’t think he would have bought it with the Guns n Roses music blasting in the background.
Some people would call this a video log or vlog for short, others would say it is a video podcast. It was quite easy to do, in fact the video was filmed using my Sony Ericsson K608i. The video file was then transferred to a mac using bluetooth. The phone encodes video into the 3gp format, which isn’t the best format to be using for the web. I found an excellent converter called iSquint, that converts the 3gp file to an mp4 file. I then embedded the video into the blog entry.
Alternatively, you can view the video at Google Video.
