Excellent video, Kristof.  :-*

Clear. Easy to follow. Gets right to the point. Makes no assumptions.

This will provide benefit. I am afraid to know the percentage of newbie websites never backed up simply because people do not know how to do a backup and restore.

Thank you. I will try to locate another judge to approve. I accept this as complete.

Thank you for your contributions to the Joomla! community,
Amy :)

Kristof -

Please zip up and upload your video to your Google Task. After you have done so, I will mark that task as complete and you will be free to choose another, if you desire. (And I hope you do!)

Thank you very much for this fabulous work! It will be useful *and* used!

Task accepted as complete!
Amy :)

No hurry. I didn't want to be holding YOU back.

Now, I have been looking out on the Google site and I still don't see the video. Are you having trouble due to the size of the file? If you do have trouble, please let us know.

Thanks!
Amy :)

PM'd Kristof with FTP site and suggestion of creating Google Video.

I will talk to Leslie at Google, as well, and see what she says.

Thanks!
Amy :)

I like the video!

It is a really big download.  Are you considering making a compressed version or putting it on Google Video?

Eventually, it will certainly need to be an embedded video of sorts. Not certain if Kirstof is willing to do so now - or would prefer to wait until after the contest. I'm not certain what Leslie at Google will require.

But, when it gets viewed by end users, being a Google Video (or [youtube]) will be the way to go!

...and, it WILL be viewed!

Amy :)

Hi Kristof,

Are you able to supply a copy of the video that does not require a proprietary codec?

Thanks,
Chris.
