My favorite podcasts

I’ve recently gotten much more into podcasts, which I previously didn’t really have much time for, nor interest in.

Blogger video upload test

Blogger’s added the ability to upload videos. I’m just testing to see how it works, and where the video file lives if you’re hosting on your own domain, like me. http://www.blogger.com/img/videoplayer.swf?videoUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fv12.nonxt7.googlevideo.com%2Fvideoplayback%3Fid%3D054b1506b8417540%26itag%3D5%26begin%3D0%26len%3D86400000%26app%3Dblogger%26et%3Dplay%26el%3DEMBEDDED%26ip%3D0.0.0.0%26ipbits%3D0%26expire%3D1274397343%26sparams%3Did%252Citag%252Cip%252Cipbits%252Cexpire%26signature%3D195CA53D9CF356D1150A46AD326AFF9F058CE7D.2E709F4E79259A173A11ED469FA34EE33C97BEAF%26key%3Dck1&thumbnailUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fvideo.google.com%2FThumbnailServer2%3Fapp%3Dblogger%26contentid%3D54b1506b8417540%26offsetms%3D5000%26itag%3Dw320%26sigh%3DOJ6p8U6208IxDvCmesrYLYiYKhA&messagesUrl=video.google.com%2FFlashUiStrings.xlb%3Fframe%3Dflashstrings%26hl%3Den&nogvlm=1
