Size matters. Or does it? — Episode 2: The envelope please...

You may or may not recall that last Saturday, January 3, 2009, I asked for your thoughts on what size the YouTube videos now featured here on a more or less daily basis should be.

Five official votes came in and the voting has been declared over by my crack poll observation team.

After several days and long nights tabulating the ballots and then rechecking them not once but three times, we finally have the official certified results, which are:

4 votes for the largest size (640 pixels wide — top) and 1 vote for medium (480 wide).

There was one hanging chad equivalent, i.e., an email directly to me that didn't come in via the comments ballot box and was still counted since at the level of audience participation evident, every person's voice matters, even if it is a bit hoarse and strained.

That vote was for the smallest size (320 wide).

I hereby declare from this moment forward that unless there's a reason not to use the largest size, that's what I'll be going with for the indefinite future.

Wait a minute, joe: aren't all futures indefinite?

Good point.

Let me rephrase that: I hereby declare from this moment forward that unless there's a reason not to use the largest size, that's what I'll be going with for the definite future.

Can we move on now?

Thank you.

An excellent suggestion was made by one of the voters, namely to include "... an actual link address. Fun to look at related vids."

Done.

I do believe that your dear feline companion is having difficulty getting comfortable. Arthritis?

First of all have you ever heard of windex or a sqiggy? That window is nasty.
Helpis on it's way with regard to larger.
It is rolled out and on it's way with a 25 mile radius from all antenna's.
Like NPR on you radio Highdef is available and will sweep the entire country if Obama is a man of his word together with Serg and Bryn.

Vindication - "Cat Water Treadmill" with a cat (with flotation backpack and safety leash!) on a treadmill that is under water.

I like the larger size, but having a link inside helps...especially folks like me on a phone that can't get vids in the browser...but can load them from the YouTube app.
