feed me: pdx: clair and al, part 4

Part 4 of Clair and Al's Portland date is up on feedmeshow.com and feedmeshow.blip.tv. There's some great banter, some side-by-side cooking, and some gorgeous mushrooms. The ep actually posted yesterday, but my Internet connection decided to take President's Day off, so whatever.

The big news, though, is technical: both hi-res web and iPhone/iPod-compatible versions of the latest episode are now available on the blip.tv page! This is huge, as iPhone-compatibility was one of the project's original goals. Here's how to get them:

- iPhone/iPod:
Just point Safari on that sexy handheld to http://feedmeshow.blip.tv, and it'll do the rest. Easy as cake!

- Web hi-res:
This remains a bit buried, while I'm testing it out. It's a 2048kbps MP4, if you want to get technical about it. If you have the bandwidth at your place of web, it'll yield a finer-grained picture than the standard Flash and Quicktimes you know and love. Click the "This episode's permalink" link in the lower-left corner of the show's blip.tv homepage. This will bring up the single-episode player page. There, you can choose to watch the episode as "web high-resolution":

All this is possible through the magic of blip.tv -- magic that they rolled out in late November, but, again, whatever. It's like Douglas Adams said about the difference between a comedian and a comic. A comedian knows the thing to say right then, while a comic thinks of it four hours later, when he's back at home, the moment long gone. Thanks, Douglas -- you put me in good company.

Eat well,
