    What was this about? I would have thought that one should have been able to tell what the "video" was about when watching it with the commentary switched off.

    Great Idea. However, this site is called "Instructables", not "Show and tell".

    Wouldn't it have made sense to finish the project, and then post a proper step-by-step Instructable?
