    I suppose these videos can't be downloaded since they are streaming. Anyone know how to download them?

    I love how he pauses to light up a smoke a couple minutes into the first lecture. Times have changed! It is right after his joke about stealing library books, where he demonstrates he has a laugh worthy of a world class physicist. I hadn't heard of him before, but it appears he was well loved and had a reputation as a great lecturer. It is beyond my level, but fun to watch.

    edit: to download, use Firefox with DownloadHelper addon, to save to .flv file which can be played with VLC or ZoomPlayer

    I used to use opera (i'm a mac user) till I read this topic. Now, just because of that DownloadHelper add-on, I returned to Firefox :D
