"A Vision of America"?

Just how far can you see with your head in that position?

Oh man... That one took me a second to understand... and then it was off-the-chair time. :lol:

A little H.L. Mencken (http://www.cloakanddagger.ca/quotes.asp), perhaps.

This topic skirts very hard into the "politics" zone. The third post makes it clear why I do not allow political discussions of that nature on this board. I will not lock this thread, yet. But I will if it turns to bickering.

Yes, I was sorely tempted to make a snarky comment, then thought better of it. Let's just say I didn't find a couple of comments terribly funny.

I can't get the webcam to work. Anyone care to describe the scene if possible without offense?

It's labeled "U.S. CAPITOL WEST LAWN" and reportedly is a 24/7 camera trained on the ceremony platform. Nothing much to see at this point; occasionally people (workers?) come and go, building-lights go on and off. (Runs on my computer under RealPlayer 10.5)

RealPlayer? :o

AHH GET IT OFF GET IT OFF! :P

(No really, RealPlayer is Real garbage. I would advise you to remove it and install Real Alternative... If, that is, you can manage to remove it. Trust me, it is tough to get rid of the whole thing.)

I don't like RealPlayer either. Musicmatch too. It takes way too long to load.

Windows Media Player's where it's at. :)

Okay, but what's bad about it other than 'slow loading'?
Does the above Webcam play on Real Alternative and Media Player?
What about QuickTime?
Thanks.

"Real Alternative" is Media Player Classic with a plugin. There's also "Quicktime Alternative", a Quicktime plugin for MPC.

But to answer your question: Media Player Classic plays just about everything.

So do later versions of Winamp. I prefer not to enable Microsoft more than I have to, so I use WinAmp to play things.
