downloading youtube videos

I’ve been kind of concerned that I’m depending on youtube and the whimsy of youtube users to keep the videos on this site (and a few others I have) going. I’ve previously downloaded a few videos from youtube, but hadn’t tried recently, and not since I’d re-installed my OS. Looking for solutions online, I came across this website, which has a pretty simple tool that I’ve been using. There is a javascript link available on the page, that you can save as a favorite in your bookmarks toolbar, which will download the video from any youtube page with one click. Pretty handy, and if you’ve got hard drive space, useful for keeping videos around that you think might get pulled from youtube.

The story of a doctor who conquered his own insanity and now shows others the way back, by the author of Microbe Hunters.
"An old master Paul de Kruif surely is. His latest book has pace, it has style, it has a sharply drawn hero, and, most important, it tells one of the great stories of our times." -Washington Post and Times Herald.

I found that in the back of a copy of Nova Express by William S. Burroughs.
