    link goes to a .txt file, so don't know what that's about. Thought this would be fun on the new ipod, but oh well.

    ok, weird, but the file name is 2005yulelog.mp4.txt. Clicking on it spits out jibberish, but if you delete the .txt suffix, then it plays fine in quick time. So, be warned :)

    Works fine on my end. I just double checked the link and everything seems to be in order.

    Some incorrectly-configured servers give you a .txt file. Essentially, the server says "this is a text file", so Safari adds the .txt extension. Just rename it and you should be fine.

    Great Mac Support from a website called Macsupport.ca!
    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Message, when I try:

    Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at localhost. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    Are you sure that the database server is running?
    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums.

    That's because they're buggy. Instead of listening to the server, they ignore it.

    Yeah, but you're called macsupport.ca!

    You lost a lot credibility with that comment ... you'd think MacSupport would ... ummm ...like support an Apple browser.
