3rd Strike Germany SBO Qualifier UK Video

Writing about web page

This is my latest video project. (20 mins, 80MB download, DivX codec required).

I entered the SBO Qualifier 3 on 3 team tournament for Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, travelling with the top UK street fighter players (including that WTF beast, Ryan Hart) from Ranking Battles UK
This video is basically a diary of the trip, from airport pranks, to tournament drama, to kebab shop action (most of the footage taken through a Motorola V3i phone :P)

My Team (Team UGLY) secured 3rd place out of 10 teams (1 x France, 2 x UK, 1 x Austria, 6 x Germany).

Wahay! ….. but only the winning team gets the prize of 800 Euros plus the qualification to play in SBO in Japan :-(

Writing about web page

Click on the above link.

If you are now on our new 10Mb service, and get your Broadband via a Samsung Set-top Box, you may be interested in upgrading your set-top box, in order to achieve the highest speeds possible on your service. However, before you decide to upgrade, you should be aware of the following information. Our Samsung set-top boxes will reach speeds of up to 5Mb in ideal conditions,

Yep …. it's really 5Mbit… if you want 10Mbit, it's a £50 fee for the upgrade… This also applies if you've have that old black Terayon cable modem.
