Many thanks you deserve some sort of reward for this, like a personally autographed copy of Lords of Shadow. Autographed by Vinny of course!

Amazing!

Though, I honestly thought you had somehow made a script to play random Vinny audio while watching Quick Looks, allowing him to actually be in -all- Quick Looks.

Did you go and through every QL and tag which staff members were featured because that's very impressive (and I imagine incredibly time consuming).

Pretty much, but first I made myself a neat page/script to help me with it, so I cut the time needed to minimum. I think I could do 100 per hour max. Few days spent on just the database, but it wasn't the worst job in the world. I've discovered more Vinny & Jeff QLs so it was worth it.

Wow, impressive.

It'd be cool to be able to sort by reverse order. Otherwise, this is definitely all around fucking rad.

Fuck yeah, now I can watch all the ones with Patrick in them!

To do that all you had to do was click on 'quicklook' under the 'videos' tab

Pretty much every video that shows up has him in it

the last 10 QL's, he's been in 3

back in my day, 30% did not equal "pretty much every"

Thats because a pothole attacked him. Usually he is in most quicklooks

Hey, would you mind sharing the Javascript code? I'm learning to program in Java and I'd like to see how the language works with PHP and websites. This is awesome by the way and should be incorporated into this site somehow.

java != javascript

This is incredible. After searching for "Dave and Drew", I was disappointed to find that searching just "Vinny" along with "I don't want anyone else" returned zero results. Ah well :p

Alternatively, this can be a great tool for those that prefer their QLs sans Vinny.

Seriously, he's cool, but man, a little goes a long way.

This is a really neat thing! I'm also curious as to how you managed to get all the metadata assembled. Did you go through by hand and tag them or did you parse the text of the video decks for the names of people in them?

By hand. The decks mostly aren't telling much.

Dang, i know its not much help now but this google doc could have helped. Maybe there is some extra info in there you could use to update this with a few more features. Sill really cool and awesome that this exists.

Well, shit. But I would propably spent as much time trying to make a script to get all this to mySQL database. Doing it by hand wouldn't be much better either.

Anyway, I'm adding the option to choose guests, now.

Now we know there are at least two crazy people on GB. Hi, @Shimakaze.
