Its been yet another wet and windy bank holiday weekend here in the UK, so I decided to involve the family and create a video Blackjack called BabyJack, despite the baby's name being Sean not Jack :). Just press the Play button below to pit your wits against the baby...

For those of you interested in how it was done; the video was shot on a simple digital camera, and then sepia and film age effects were applied in Vista's Movie Maker, with sound generated by my eldest son Thomas playing piano in the background. The stills were created using Microsoft Paint and the Chiller font. The video itself was embedded in the page using the Windows Media Player Control; and the interaction was coded in Javascript using trusty Notepad.
