Pics and Movies of NMM01 and Russ Swift now available with unlimited bandwidth!!!!

The pictures and movies that I took at NMM01 are available now at http://www.theblakeburn.com/nmm/ . Thanks to Jon Blakeburn for hosting the files on his server due to Geocities being a bit stingy with the bandwidth :) Hope you all enjoy them, my favourite (as anybody who met me at Gaydon will know) is MOV00075.MPG . :) :) :) :)
Sorry to all of you who tried and failed with the Geocities site.

P.S. There are a few more Pics and Movies on here than there were on Geocities.....

For those of you who use Windows 9x and would like to combine John\'s movies to make one that will run about two minutes, it is quite easy using the DOS \"binary copy\" command.

Download each of the files to your hard drive.
Rename them to shorten them as m39.mpg, m63.mpg, m64.mpg, etc. (Note, the extension may say mpeg but you can change it to mpg.)
There is a limit on the number of characters you can enter in a single line, so you have to do them in two steps.

Click on Start, Programs, MS-DOS Prompt. Log onto the drive or folder where the files reside. Enter the following command. Leave a space between the last part and the name of the combined file.

copy /b m39.mpg+m63.mpg+m64.mpg+....m69.mpg mini1.mpg
Press enter to create \"mini1.mpg\"

copy /b mini1.mpg+m70.mpg+m71.mpg+.....m79.mpg mini.mpg (Note that m74 and m76 are missing from the list)

This creates mini.mpg, but you can rename it whatever you want. It is just under 10MB and runs for almost two minutes. Check it and if it plays, you can delete the other parts.

Just shunting this back to the top of the list of threads in case anyone\'s missed out on the clips and photos.

:)

Jeez - The server served over 600MB worth of data on Wednesday alone! You guys must really like those pics and movies!

Awwwww shucks thanx people ;) or maybe it\'s just the prospect of seeing video footage of Russ rather than my camera skills :) anyway, glad you like them... and thanks again Jon.

Not a problem Colin. Anytime you find any more MINI related videos, give me shout and I\'ll put the server on for you to upload them, then I\'ll shift them across onto the web.

Does anybody know where these Russ swift video shorts might still be found?

I'm wanting to rewatch them for a few parking pointers before my MINI arrives.:D

(for the newbies, Russ does things w/ a MINI that will make your hair stand on end! http://www.russswift.co.uk/ )
