Invisible Comments, now with video. Answered

I've just noticed - if you enclose a comment in <pointy brackets>, they don't show up on your "comments" page.  You just get an empty space with the name of the person who posted it.

I guess the system thinks that the contents of <pointy brackets> are supposed to be code of some sort, but it's an odd effect anyway.

As an aside - what is the best you can do with the image below?

(The second version is a PNG file, just in case you'd prefer.)

Heh. I think it's almost a requirement ritual for newbies on the site to get a reply from one of the famous instructablers. Like a Makers brotherhood.

Hm. Is it possible to send a red-hot piece of metal through the internet?



If it is, then I must say, this conversation has changed my view of things...

If you watch it you can get the feel of "Bob we need something for the camera." Oh, mm OK I'll come up with something. I really don't know how it happened, but the look on his face is something. What to read I don't know but someone else might.

.  It's a very interesting remake of Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues video (from 1965, no less!).
