Try just changing the IP (if you have a non-static one of course), i had a smilar problem with other video.
I've disconnected, connected again, got new IP and YouTube was working for me again...

Apparently, he shouted "Windows, Windows, Windows!" repeatedly until the point that his vocal cords required surgery to fix. :|

I'm pretty sure he did both but only his "Windows, Windows, Windows!" thing required surgery.

According to this, you're both wrong:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... IUC0H1.DTL

Quote:
Q: One of the things it says is that you had surgery on your vocal cords. Is that true?

A: That's true. It's actually the funniest story, because people assume it's from yelling.

It's not. It's exactly the opposite. I went on a tour in Asia and I had a cold, which is always tough on the vocal cords. And so I got a sore throat on the airplane. And I got to Japan and I had to give a speech to a group of (computer-makers), and I didn't have my voice.

I had laryngitis. So I whispered my speech. Whispering is the hardest thing on your vocal cords, by far. It is a vocal abuse nightmare. Before they did the surgery, I had to take eight weeks of voice training.



:P

Steve Ballmer said Windows repeatedly in 1991, but there was no reference so it was removed in Wikipedia.

He was right, he didn't have surgery for either of those reasons.
