Video answers to your wine questions

Got a question about wine, sake or baseball? Ask me on, and I'll answer -- like your own personal Vaynerchuk, without the Jets helmet. (Or the wine retail business.)

The link is on the next page (click on "Read More" below) because the vyou software runs continuously, which means once I start talking I never stop. Admittedly this is the way I am in reality, but I don't usually say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over like this unless I've had wayyyyy too much Champagne.

Please will you turn off the auto-play on this thing? I would love to read your blog but not while you're nattering away out loud. There does not seem to be any on-off control, all I can do is turn down the volume. I realise some may like this, but... please can't you give readers - those who really want to READ - a choice?

I'm sorry, I don't know how to turn it off. And I know what you mean; I can't leave the volume on when I'm on my own blog.

The vyou system is in beta. They'll have to figure out some way to address this.

In the meantime, I'm going to try jumping the vyou link to another page, so that you won't have to keep hearing it when you're on my blog's main page.

If that doesn't work, and I can't figure out something else, I will take out this link by Monday morning.

Incidentally, I tried emailing vyou about other technical concerns. It took more than a week for somebody to respond to me and he said, "Did you solve your problem yet?" I said no, and haven't heard anything since. I don't know much about the company; it might be one guy in a garage for all I know. I like playing with the software, but it's not yet ready for prime time.

Anyway, I apologize again. I'm really sorry.
