Thanks as always to all presenters, moderators and everyone else who joined us today, another great session with some truly spectacular presentations and demos.

First talk already uploaded to the ABug website: JAFA Systems and me (John Wike).

Oh, and ...

(Thanks karateed - great choice of games, though I was jammy with my Amidar score by fluking both the bonus screens! :) )

Really sorry that I had to drop off after the DOOMSDAY part II talk, but I really enjoyed the day.

Thanks to the organisers and speakers. I managed to drop in for John Wike's presentation and really enjoyed it. :)

Thanks Dave for editing my waffle :)
Thanks 0xCODE for the questions - I do like questions, even if I sometimes answer a different question.

Thanks for the links, tricky. Strangely enough, those links are not working for me (404).
But if I rewrite the URL a little (the first link for instance) then it works --> https://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=cHkXg0ZueoY

I've added links above, probably a flash security type thing as they preview and link fine for me in Chrome/FF on Win7.
I usually add them anyway with a comment to watch in at least 720p50 to get 50Hz, but was lazy :oops:

(Thanks for the fix Tricky. It's the same for me: proper youtube URLs are fine, but the smart ones which for some people provide a preview do nothing in my browser. Probably because it's just Chrome on a Macbook, and doesn't have a Flash plugin.)

I don't have flash plugins on any machines in the house!
FF has ad-block and Chrone has ad-block and backspace to go back + google docs.
I don't know anything newer than HTML TABLEs, so wouldn't know where to check next.
Do any of the [ flash ] / youtube previews work on this site?
They used to be http://, but then they stopped working for preview unless they were changed to https:// (I've changed quite a few of mine, but not all).

Very odd - maybe somehow a difference between OS not between browser. None of the previews have ever worked for me. I have a trick though: it looks like this:
