Hi Gareth,

A couple broken links above to bring to your attention:
1. It was Christo Kutrovsky's blog post speculating about X..., not Alex G.
2. Your link to Alex G on Youtube points to the blog post again.

Thanks and cheers,

Just a quick correction about the blog post - it's actually Christo Kutrovsky's post.
