I've been working off and on since we returned from Arkansas to put together a slide show as a memento of the reunion we attended. I wanted it to portray the Passion Play as I remember it, as it is now, the cast back in the day, and photos from the reunion. I wanted to find a good song to go with it. And I wanted to avoid going through YouTube to publish the video. All of that took a good long while, but I persevered and figured it all out. Then I got it to upload to Facebook, and since I was on a roll I decided to try to upload it to xanga just for kicks. Guess what? For the first time since May, 2011 I have successfully uploaded a video on xanga! No YouTube embed code, no checking the Edit HTML box, a straight upload from my computer to xanga. Happy day! And since it worked, I'm posting it and you're watching it, doggone it!
I won today's battle with technology. I'm sure I'll lose the war, but I'm going to enjoy my little victory today.
EDIT: I'm leaving this post up for the irony. The video did upload, which is a major step forward for xanga's video uploader. It just won't play. It started to play when I first posted it, but there was no sound. So still some glitches, but I choose to celebrate the improvement instead of whine about the problems. Good job, xanga; keep up the good work! I know you'll get it fixed one of these days.
