|Spent a good
amount of time working out how to post videos to this page. Would be easy
if my software were current. It was released in 2002. Google offered a way
forward. Lots of fixes for lots of problems. Though I am not yet able to fit
videos into the text, I can get them on the page. Hopefully this does not
