Excellent screen cast. You have the right voice for this kind of thing!

To play this on my systems that use the i810 graphics driver, I had to
add the following two lines to the Device section of my xorg.conf:

	VideoRam	65536
	Option "CacheLines" "1980"

Otherewise totem bombs out with a BadAlloc error message from the X
server. I think the CacheLines option is probably more critical than the
VideRam entry.
