I was so excited this morning to see the video up. and now YouTube has just messed up day. I think it is a bit over the top what they did. It not like you were showing a full length video or something.

thank you for the 2 part justin.tv

Heh, sorry about that guys. Sometime stupid shit on the Internet pisses me off. I filed a counter claim and will make a new version anyway when I get to the office.

Video works now, thanks.

I think it is because of the "shuffling shuffling" singing. Either way, Couldn't wait so I listened to the MP3, will rewatch it when video becomes available.

Audio wise, sounds like good show.

We uploaded a new version that doesn't have bucket video in it - hopefully YouTube won't yank this one.

Umm, No X58 (1366) Core I7 Extreme edition nor any Bloomfield core for that matter launched with a 6 core option. The top 2 Bloomfield's were the 965 and 6 months later the 975 both were 4 core with the only difference being clock speed and unlocked multiplier.

It wasn't till Gulftown that we got 6 cores in an I7 a year after the 975 launch.
