Huangyangtan - Loss of memory

Sorry I haven't written for a few days. Wife and daughter returned from visiting relatives, and they've been keeping me pretty busy.

Daughter has asked all about the Huangyangtan mystery, Wife hasn't mentioned it since she came back. I did sell the RAM (2 x 512 MB) that I took out to install the 2 GB, so the total cost of the memory upgrade wasn't so bad (i.e. we won't starve to death as soon as Wife previously estimated). Of course I lost the chance to do a memory upgrade to any of the other computers around here. But, no, we won't starve.

I don't know why, but suddenly the YouTube video is getting many more views than in the past few days. I do wish it was better quality. I can't afford the $600 Google wants for the necessary software to do movies directly in Google Earth itself.

Whereas until now roughly 25 - 30 people daily have been viewing the short video , 1000 people have done so since I last checked at 12:00 today. The number of people reading the post in the Google Earth forum went up as well during that time (and in the process became the 10th-most read posting in the Military forum), though the increase was not as high as over at YouTube. Same goes for this blog. Thus, since I haven't seen the Huangyangtan mystery mentioned in the press or at some Internet news site, I conclude that the action is over at YouTube. Does anybody know why?
