View Full Version : Willis' Slide Show on the Springs (2006)

This legacy slide show requires Microsoft Internet Explorer and an Active-X component.

Good Grief-What a lousy orator But thanks for immortalizing that talk, Chip
Interesting. Firefox offers to download IE 5 or later, but really just barfs. IE8 shows the first page and wants to install stuff, but seems to be downloading a lot of data (I didn't wait). I wonder if there's an easy way to convert it to something more user friendly?

This old project would be a perfect Powerpoint to convert to some other format. If you aren't willing to view it in MS Internet Explorer and install the pieces required, just stay tuned for rerelease news. Or hire Willis to come over and do it for you live :-)

FOSS will gladly accept donations. I wouldn't pay a plugged nickel to listen to my soporific tones. I am available to stumble thru a short history of the Springs, tho.

This is the place and the video should play for anyone who has a decent internet connection. It's 47 minutes and change, so grab a snack before you start.
Holy cow. Can you post an annotated 47 second version? And btw, what format is 1120x816 anyway?

Willis (as the content owner) would have to service that request. I was surprised that Vimeo came up with those screen dimensions too. Of course their delivery format is Flash, but I uploaded an MPEG4 file at 1280x720. I probably have to do something different to get it to stay at 1280 and the file size was already around 800MB, my largest project to date delivered by web.
[update: I want to revisit the graphics files, PNGs, that were exported from PowerPoint to create the video. The native video file seems to be overly large since the screen content is static from slide to slide. I may have horked a setting somewhere when I rendered the MPEG4 file.]
