Tall ships (porthole)

Website move

Changing hosts at the moment, so there may be some oddities with http://thomasmccorkell.me.uk/ and friends. Commenting on the gallery will be disabled on the old host before I actually shift the files.

I should manage the necessary DNS-fu to make sure all emails go where I want, but if you're sending me anything critical please copy to an alternate address or comment with details here.

Let me know if there's any glitches - I'll update this when I've done the actual move.

Proof once more that the BBC are made of Win and Awesome: They've made their iPlayer work on the Wii.

Ok, so it's more of a hack than full compatability (they made it work by transcoding some of their videos to Sorenson as the Wii's version of Opera doesn't support the current Flash codecs, and the web UI isn't quite sorted yet), but it's a neat way to watch iPlayer stuff on the TV. And it means I won't need to fight Intel's graphics chips, which apparently only believe in the 'standard' 4:3 resolutions.

The next step that they're hinting at is an actual iPlayer channel on the Wii, which hopefully will be able to use something much better than Sorenson for the video.
