This is rather off topic, but I thought it was worth propagating.

Those of you who've been around long enough may remember stories of an 
australian teenager who invented a miraculous video compression 
technology, capable of streaming VHS-quality (or was it DVD-quality) 
video over a POTS modem line. 5 years ago.

And no, you couldn't see it. We have a demo we'll bring buy, but that's 
all until you buy.

Apparently someone bought earlier this year.

The results of the evaluation they did are now available as part of a 
shareholder report. If you thought the miraculous technology might be 
the old 'compress n movies in log(n) bits' trick, it seems you are 
correct...with VP3 being used to compress the decoder itself. :)
