We have/had already discussed hosting it all ourselves (my favorite
idea) but that would take a lot of resources that we aren't sure we can
get or would be worth getting.
Don't get me wrong all of our videos are great and so are the people
that make them but at this would take a lot of bandwidth and a lot of
space (believe me I know I have an HTML5 video page that hosts Theora
With Mozilla, Google, and Opera all supporting HTML with Theora we can
dump the vids on Archive.org (henceforth a.o I'm tried to typing the

work on a.o and then we can bring this all back up when the time draws
