[Baypiggies] Video from our meeting

The videos from our meeting are now available. We have *much* better  
audio since Paul M. lent us a professional wireless microphone system.

I always try to get the video out the day after or at least by the  
weekend after our meeting. This one took a little longer. We had some  
technical problems. The camera battery can handle an hour and a half  
of video tops. We're usually pushing it to get the last video in  
before the camera dies. But, this week, we lost a *good* chunk of the  
last video. However, redundancy rules =)

Because we were streaming audio directly to a different system (Garage  
band on my Mac), we had the audio from the last speaker. With a copy  
of their slides, I was able to piece it all back together. We did lose  
some mic audio on Drew's talk (Garage band just quit for some reason),  
but we have the audio from the camera to fill-in. So, we captured the  
entire meeting... yeah.  But, it took some manual labor and patience  
to piece it all together... Oi!

Aahz gives us a great explanation of Big-O and collections

Sandrine Ribeau shows us Pylint

JJ Behrens discusses sort and a few tricks of the trade

Drew Perttula shows us some great visual tools with profiling data
NOTE: Audio will switch from mic to regular camera mic. So, the volume  
will reduce toward end

Simeon Franklin discusses Virtualenv, Pip and Fabric
WARNING: Audio starts with regular camera microphone, but within  
moments of the beginning, we switch back to microphone. It will get  
louder in the introduction.

As always, I didn't have time to make the video as good as I'd like  
(can you say perfectionist ;)  But, I want to integrate slides into  
the talk, do face closeups, fix some of the darkness/lightness issues,  
package with titles, and chapters. And, finally, get it into a YouTube  
format so that's it's easier for everyone to see.  But, this works  
(the audio especially works), so I'm putting it all on a back-burner  
for an unspecified amount of time.

Good luck everyone!  Happy Hacking!
