Five for Phelps!

199006_m07.jpgMichael Phelps helped the U.S. 4x200m freestyle relay team to the Gold, becoming the winningest athlete in Olympic history, now with 11 gold medals and counting…

The U.S. men didn’t just set the world record, they destroyed it. Their 6:58.56 was 4.68 seconds faster than the previous record. Another gold medal for Phelps and the US swim team!!!

Phelps is now five-for-five in Beijing, with a world record in every final.

Not everyone can enjoy the Olympic games on their computer!

I have been enjoying all the great video coverage of the Beijing Olympics Via my Computer (MacPro) provided by NBC. But as you may have already figured out, not everyone or should I say, not every computer can play back the videos.

I have an old 12″ PowerPC G4 that is not able to view the spectacular offerings from NBC. I am waiting to upgrade my laptop. I will be searching for alternative sites, so if anyone finds some great video online that doesn’t require any speaial specs, please let me(the world) know.

thanks!
