In keeping with one of the purposes of this blog – learning how to use and customize WordPress – I folded a lot of techniques into this post. The video is recorded on a Flip video camera, copied onto my computer, and converted into a Flash video file. The file is embedded into this post with a WP plug-in called Viper’s Video Quicktags.
Next design task: fix the ugly header.
