Well I’m tinkering with lots of little things trying to learn more about hosting videos and web cams and other things
I spent several hours today figuring out how I might be able to host videos directly on my own web site if I want to (there are still many reasons that it may still be worth using YouTube.)
Anyway, the above video clip (I know really short) but it makes tinkering a bit easier when not working with huge files. But that clip shows some of my ZipGrow towers (Thank you Nate Storey) I love testing out new things and they are doing much better for me now than they were several months ago.
I just showed Nate the little trick I’m using with the water bottle parts spreading the spray into a dribbling flow all around the tower media. When I used to have it spraying down into the towers, I would get slime and splashing out of the towers. I haven’t been running the bottle spreaders for long but I’ve not had any problems with them since I started doing it a few weeks ago.
Next video here will be one of the cook cutting some pea shoots we have just begun growing. We have found that pea and sunflower shoots are marvelous for snacking and salads and they don’t take too long to grow. This was something we picked up when we visited Milwaukee.
Now I’m still figuring out how to make this all look a bit better but I expect most of my videos will be hosed on YouTube (since using such video hosting actually has many benefits as youtube has become such a great search engine) but I thought I should be able to put stuff in my site and have it totally hosted in my site if I want.
