Warp speeds were originally calibrated differently. By the time of Next Generation, they'd gone to a sliding scale - and in "All Good Things", they'd changed it again.

My guess: The Mirror, which is listed as being the shortest from start to finish. The Forums don't say whether that's run time or conception-to-upload, so I'm guessing it.

I edited to add that, which may be verboten, so I'll post it again:

The Mirror.

Gibbstation 3

According to the LRRCast You had already had the next video done, and chose to do Gibb interviews of the PS3 launch on a whim only after realizing the lines were full. Video posted within 24 hours afterwards.
Thats a UBER fast concept to video posted turn around.

As discussed in the Season One DVD's and posted by me on the wiki page in November, The Mirror.

Oh, and if Gibbstation3 is correct I'm not sure what will happen, or, on a related note, if it is even physically possible to get a forum tag that is more Awesome. Thank You.

I absolutely love the clip discussing my username and the pronunciation there of.
I guess now would be a good time to point out that its not really meant to be pronounced, I've never even really tried. But also that IT IS NOT a mash of keyboard letters, but rather much geekier. It is in-fact the top row of the American "Qwerty" keyboard; in alphabetical order. (I've heard keyboards in some other countries switch the "y" and "z" key which would instead make it eiopqrtuwz)

The reason for such a username is two-fold: A) it is incredibly geeky B) it is NEVER taken when I create a new account ANYWHERE. So I have never have to wonder what my username for a particular site is because its always the same. Similarly if you ever see my username anywhere on the Internet its probably me.

Other than lack of pronunciation the only other disadvantage I have found with it is I now sometimes omit the letters when reciting the alphabet: abcdefghijklmn(ei)"opqrtuwy"z ... actually flows rather naturally since I've typed/spelled my username so many times.

No one said that.
I'm pretty sure that was never a rule.

Hence the only real worry would be about a fact that I am sure of:
If Graham wants to create a new such rule and make it retroactive, there isnt much I can do about it, because he controls the forums.

I don't think the forum software will allow it, never mind what rules are made up.

Shortest Video Easily HD.

Gibbstation they probably had the idea for a long time.

HD I don't think they got until they got the camera and then did it right away if I remember the podcast right.

Based on Paul's off comment about how the twenty-four hour filmfest was related to the trivia, I'm gonna say...

42!

That's good.

(Oh, and, I think 'trivia' needs a better name. I propse LRtRivia. Which is pronounced 'LoadingReadyRivia', with a silent T and all.)

I would like to say...

There are literally two dozen copies of Ace Attorney sitting on shelves at my local Fred Meyer's department store. They've been there since forever.

And yet there are no PS3s or Wiimotes.

Juneau is a gaming town, as long as you're only following what's in EGM...

What else is there to do in Juneau?
I imagine there's so much winter wonderland mountain majesty that you'd get sick of it.

If you get a second custom title, it should just become {original custom title}². Increment the exponent as necessary.

I think some planing does go into the sure stupidly. Also most of them are not filmed at the last minute on Thursday.

Juneau's actually great, if you're outdoorsey.

Problem is that it's very expensive to live here, so much of our population is...how to say...corpulent, conservative white guys. That's a mean and slight exaggeration.

But! What is there to do? If you like the outside, absolutely everything. From skiing to surfing (!) to mountain climbing, hiking, skydiving, paragliding and almost anything else you can think of, it's great.

We have one of the best ski areas in the world (And one of only two on islands! As I understand it the other one is in Sri Lanka), which is basically where I spend my winters.

We're pretty mild here - Juneau, as far as I can tell, is rather like Victoria with more mountains. We have mountains everywhere. We have so many mountains that people that grow up here get a really deep-seated instance of canyon syndrome. You couldn't see the horizon if you asked really, really nice. You can't even see the horizon from the tops of other mountains. I have pictures to prove it.

There's also fishing - we're big on commercial fishing here. You make big bucks but it is a Goddamn unbelievable amount of work. And mining - the Kensington Gold Mine is opening just north of town (Certain legal challenges notwithstanding). A gold mine! Just like the old days. Except with way more awesome equipment.

Juneau's one of the most visually stunning places on the planet. That doesn't stop us from making fun of tourists who are ooh'ing and aaahhh'ing over bald eagles...while they find a choice morsel at the landfill. It's not realling the oohs and ahhs, its more the "Unbelievable! Magnificent creatures! So noble!" assertations that always come up.

About the LRRCast...I'm going to say "Vote Carefully."

Mt Washington, the closest ski hill to Victoria, is on Vancouver Island. There is also one in Newfoundland.
