Re: Ammar's Fab Fruit Available Again!

Most items were small novelties, key chains, hair ties etc. But the fried squid as a final load... Like Leonard, I went with the Ammar product.

Yes, a little humor from Mr. Keyes would go a long way. Like Brad, I'd love to see a video of a performance for an audience. I will say though, his bragging about winning all of his debates on different topics was a big put off. Who wins a debate is pretty subjective. I certainly hope he isn't think...

Just on the off chance that someone might need a ride. I have a ride coming to the Orlando Airport about 12:30pm and going to the Red Roof Inn by the convention center. If you need a ride and ready to leave at 12:30 let me know.

Re: DVDs or video files

Thanks Bill. I do have a back up, but wanted to watch them a little more conveniently, as I usually store the drive away. Makes sense to put a lot more video files on a DVD, than spending time converting and only getting 1, maybe 2 on a disk. I've heard of Handbrake and also Flick, but files it is.
