Wasp nest.

As part of a settlement agreement with my 2nd ex-wife we’ll be keeping it a bit light around here for a little while. I’m sorry but it’s the only way I can keep custody of the chinchillas and daddy needs them for some weather related Santaría. I’m doing it for you, you know.

That flv player is tidy and light. Nice UI to it.

So, now, about the chinchillas and the weather, the Scruggses use squirrels, as I'm sure you know.

You remind me of a very young Tomás de Torquemada. But for squirrels.

¡Confess, confess!

Well… That flv player is tidy and light. Nice UI to it.

The best part is that in the source XHTML it’s just this:

<a href="/media/flv/wasp-nest.flv" title="Wasp Nest" class="flv">Wasp nest.</a>

The jQuery media plugin turns it into a cross-compatible bit of code on page load. Non-JS just gets the link for it.

Oh, gods, but it's true. I do want them to confess, for the sake of their souls, and it's a good thing I'm never going to be in a position to make that happen.

Thanks for the tips on the player. Eventually UFOB is going to migrate to its own server. Though when, I have no idea. But T.V. and the rest of us do like to have simple and clean conveniences.

Why are all those wasps in William Burrough's sex toy?

That’s just how we rolls in the Interzone.
