I was afraid that it was after I sent it. That is the problem with video files; they tend to be on the large side.

I think this is a good quality to see the sign and discuss how to  
write a sign...we don't need a Hollywood quality movie! Thanks,  
Adam....and it is only 112 K or so...that is a little big for the  
list software, but not bad...

So now we know the software to use to take video of ourselves:

Windows Movie Maker on Windows

and on the Mac:

Ivezeen on

Many thanks everyone!
