Backchannel: descriptions with links

from this post:

mod edit, a video of a tent camp at Ehrenberg. please include a description with your links. I am getting tired of doing this and I will start just deleting posts with links and no description.

A better solution would be to change the rule; it’s wrongheaded.  I’ve already described how to get video (or just the audio stream) out of youtube with very little bandwidth.  I do it all the time on my Verizon 3g connection.
