Technical notes

1. In general, an RCA Small Wonder videocamera (a gift from Greg's parents) was used to record footage, and Windows Movie Maker was used to edit it, add captions, etc. Windows Movie Maker generates .WMV files; most of these have been uploaded to YouTube, which converts them to Flash (.SWF or .FLV) format, but Greg has converted a few of them to .FLV format with the free program Format Factory so that he can play them on his own website ( using the free JW Player.
