Maybe the link is just borged. But it may also just be that I am an idiot :-)

The funniest thing is if you can actually watch someone trying to watch this video. Laying back in his/her chair, maybe putting head phones on, ... :-D

took me some clicks too..... very good.

Chris Frei, 2008-07-21

took me two clicks :-)

Same here, took me two clicks. One in the start page, one in the detail post display. First thought: vowe may have confused the URL when copying or want's us to look at the detail. Second thought: Am I already an idiot?

My conclusion: No, you're not an idiot if you (at first) consider that you may have made a mistake or the system may be a bit off of what you expected it to be.

Reminds me of a blonde joke I once heard...

You are going to have to read my blog more carefully Volker, I x-posted this 6 days ago :-) - Its very good though

I promise. :-)

No clicks. Rolled over the "Youtube video", showed a link and status bar text - compared to the page url... hmmm.

Kevan Emmott, 2008-07-21

Hehe. I didn't click it, but I almost did. Noticed the url in the status bar. Then checked the page source, to see where the video might actually be (so I guess, in fact, this idiot was a tad bit confused, just in a different way.) Hehe

-1 click here ... I had this feeling, before I started visiting vowe.

Take that ...

haha! i know this old trick. i've been using it since my web designer days... too effective. but this trick doesn't worked on me. i always right clicked the image to know if its a movie or image.

I clicked only once - normally our firewall is blocking all streaming content and hence I had to click to see whether vowe found a way to surpass it ...
