2. Has it been and adjustment for you? Yeah Duh! very different lifestyle

3. Do you like living here? Surprisingly Yes

4. Do I miss Southern California? Yes and No, I miss a lot of things in California, But I don’t miss the SMOG, Traffic and the high cost of living.

Hi, Norman. I’m a fifty-something guy who works in financial services. Your picture looks familiar from the WordCamp event on Saturday. Did you enjoy it? I thought it was pretty cool. If you get a chance, check out my slightly skewered take on it at my blog, davisw.wordpress.com.

If you called Kingston Customer service I would feel pretty confident. I have been buying ram from them for a long time and with a 100% success rate with different brands PC and Mac’s. I hope this answer your question or second opinion. Thank you for taking the time watch the lifetech101.tv videos. Happy Holidays!

Hi norman, Have just watched your green screen video tutorial (excellent content)
I am trying to put a video on my web site similar to this (copy and paste to IE)


I have got my head around the chromakey part but I am stuck at how to overlay the video with a clear background and onto the website as shown in the above demo.
Any tips or tricks would be most welcome.

Regards John
