I picked up one of these the other day from Newegg for $9.99, after the mail in rebate of course. It is pretty awesome 8GB is about all the storage that I need on a flash drive these days. I won’t bore you with the details, I’ll just show you the HDTune Benchmarks. I had to run the benchmark twice because of that strange spike in the middle. I don’t really know how to explain it. One of these days I’ll run a real benchmark with it and post the results. (These are just read speed tests)
Apparently this is what happens when an airplane, or satellite taking pictures from over the poles, takes pictures from different angles and then puts them together.
Just a little test from the neat little blog entry poster that I just installed, I’m curious to see if it even works!
I discovered this awesome wordpress plugin that allows you to easily embed valid YouTube video.Â http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/wordpress-plugins/smart-youtube
Its really easy to use, you just install the plugin and then configure it under the “Settings” tab.Â Then when you want to embed a YouTube video you just type
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMH0bHeiRNg and it will automagically handle everything for you. You can also embed a video to play in “high quality” by adding an h after the v,
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMH0bHeiRNg (notice in both examples the bold v and bold vh.)
If you have ever tried to embed a YouTube video and then tried to validate the HTML of your page, you know that youtube will break your validation.Â I recently discovered the solution.Â Apparently YouTube videos are also supposed to be viewed 320×267, I think I actually like the smaller size.Â I bolded the important parts.
