I think I need to go to Romania

At work yesterday, a discussion arose about dental work and the associated costs. Someone got some crowns done for just €100 each whilst he was in Romania (this year or last). A crown here costs over $1000.

Apparently €100 is considered expensive in Romania, and many clients of this particular dentist come from wealthier countries like the Unitied States. Obviously, one wouldn't go overseas just for dental work - that would be like driving interstate to save 6¢/litre on fuel. But it's very handy if you happen to have travel plans. Which I don't. :-(

YouTube questions

I'm sure YouTube is a wonderful service. In fact, I've watched a few videos from YouTube users. I just have a couple of questions:

  • Where can I find RSS/Atom feeds? If I can't subscribe to someone's videos, how am I supposed to know when they upload something new?

  • How can I download videos to watch on something like a video iPod or a television?
Hmm, I wonder what sort of response I'd get if I were to send these questions to YouTube... I guess it's not really even worth the effort.
