Quick tutorial on how to embed videos in OPs. I'm going to use Youtube as a basis, because thats where most folks get their videos. Everything I write will double with how to embed in comments EXCEPT where noted:
Step 1: Find video (I'm using http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLOtDB1SzSA because Brian hasn't put "Brady Quinn for Heisman" back on Youtube)
Step 2: Click Youtube link that says "Share"
Step 3: Click "Embed"
Step 4A FOR OPs: Click check box that says "use old Embed Code"
Step 4B: Copy Embed Code
******Note: for Embedding videos in the comments you do NOT need to use the Old Embed Code******
Step 5: Click "Switch to plain text editor" here on MGoBlog
Step 6: Paste in Embed Code
Step 7: Switch Back to "Rich Text Editor" and see the box for your video (h/t Blazefire)
FOR OPs: Make sure the box that pops up on the screen says "FLASH" and not "IFRAME". "IFRAME" is the newer embed code and won't work in the OP. Both "IFRAME" and "FLASH" videos will work in the comments.
Step 8: Enjoy your embedded OP Video
Went there for the Space, Bitches, Space picture, and look! New Shirts!
I am turning to the robust knowledge base of the MGOBLOG faithful.
There apparently is a rumor that a UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN flag is on the Moon, put there by one of our esteemed alumni who was walking on it while under the employ of NASA. There is apparently a rumor that this rumor is untrue. And a rumor that, while there may have been a MICHIGAN flag on one of the Gemini or Apollo spacecraft, it never made it to the Moon.
Anyone know the truth here? I don't want google search links. I want someone who knows a guy who is friends with a sister of the father of the ex-brother-in-law who used to walk the fish and the cat of the engineer who put the flag on the spacecraft. Or something like that.
Way off topic, but a college buddy of mine is in the Guitar Center Master Satriani guitar contest and could use a few votes. I've checked out several of the guys ahead of him and, frankly, he blows many of them out of the water. It's really just a popularity contest and it'd be cool for this guy to get up there, and even win.
His name is Que (pronounced "Q" or kyoo) Rhee and he graduated mid-90's in engineering. Very cool guy. I still remember jamming with him, totally butchering the lyrics to Comfortably Numb while he just killed the solos.
Anyway, to vote for him,

You can do all three, by the way.
