There's a box to click on to disable smilies in a post. I'll try it.

Thanks for the tips guys. I had to use the extra space suggestion as I wanted to keep my emoticons in the post. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Hm, much shorter than my response. I'll have to work on brevity.

The video is real, it just isn't what Sibrel says it is. He's taken an unremarkable piece of footage and put his anti-government spin on it. He hacked it up in his video to destroy the continuity and narrated over the top so you can't hear what the astronauts are saying.

Jay,

Since the original un-edited footage isn't bound by copyright, (or is it?) could someone make a medium-quality RealVideo version available on the Internet for all to view?

(I'm not necessarily suggesting that you should do it, of course. I was simply wondering whether it's a feasable idea.)

Yes, it is feasible. I don't currently have the equipment to do it with, though.

Jay, what equipment would you need?
