We're supposed to hit the upper 80s next week; I truly fear the summer will be brutal.
I'm not sure what the big deal is about videosift. If you have no blocking software of any kind yeah its a bit annoying, but that's pretty much anywhere on the web. Noscript and/or adblock gets rid of that normally leaving the video playable. If the video is not playable you'll generally have the same problem on the source site. Not that I really care if videos are directly linked from youtube or wherever, I just find it odd people are that bothered by videosift links.
