    Mr. Kenndey the Frontline site just keeps skipping on me… I let it buffer and then i try to rewind it so that i can listen to it properly but it still doesnt work…

    if you’re having trouble viewing the video, it could be a couple of things.
    1. your internet connection is too congested (all the users on the same wireless) or
    2. you have two many programs open and running.

    it’s most likely the first.

    try it a couple of times. Don’t worry about it now if it won’t work, we can cover it in class.
