Thank you for all your videos and I watched them all. Your cousin from "E-mail from Tehran" video looks like your twin!!!!! Both of you wear glasses....

     This video, "Internet and Tea", is very clear. The videos from your website look clear, but jerky. It feel like the video and the sound "stop and go", very may need to check to see if the videos were up-loaded properly. I recall I watched the introductory video on IC not long ago, it was great, flowing properly, and no technical problems.

Thank you so much for your hard work!
