    Why is the download video smaller than the one that I get when I click on the "Full Screen" button?

    Download: 94.46 MB (is this again the Zune version?)
    Full Screen: 96.00 MB

    Fixed, Charles just swung by and explained the problem which was my misunderstanding of which file is the high-res versus low res file. The high res file has 2MB on it and I had assumed that was the low res file, my bad, but fixed in the future.

    Awesome. I got already the high res one by adding the _2MB and wanted to post that right away. Great that you fixed it already!

    I remember when to be a computer hacker and 'hacking code' was a good thing.  Bloody mass media strikes again.
