Here I am again, seeking technical guidance from those younger and wiser. [This is the first generation in the history of the world in which the young explain to the old how things work. Talk about revolutions!]
Here's the thing. Five weeks ago, thanks to the efforts of Ann Davis, I spoke at Marist College in Poughkeepsie. One of my talks was called "What Good is a Liberal Education?" The talk was videotaped, and eventually, again thanks to Ann's persistence, the video was posted on a Marist server. I would like to post a link to the talk on my blog, because I think folks might find it interesting. Ann emailed me the link, and when I click on it, up comes the talk. BUT when I copy the link into my blogt, or even highlight it and copy it to a WORD document, and try to open it, I get an error message. I am pretty sure I am copying it exactly correctly. One needs QuickTime to open it, but my Windows Vista has that, even though it is an Apple ap, so that is all right. I even now have a CD of the talk. When I put it in my CD drive, it starts automatically. But look though I have, I cannot find any way to download it onto my own computer, so even that route is denied me. I figure there is some code embedded in the email message that does not copy, but how can that be?
I think it is a good talk, and since on this video my facial tics and twitches are almost totally quiet, I am not mortified by the sight of myself. [For those of you who know me only through this blog, I have had these twitches since I was five, and I will apparently have them until I die. Such is life.]
Does anybody have an idea? I could mail the CD to you, if that would do it.
