In Reply to: a thought, then some episode download news posted by sadcafe on March 10, 2000 at 16:17:59:
Well, thanks for the comment, sadcafe...
Sorry I've been out of the loop on posting more episodes, I've moved from San Diego to Atlanta, and it'll be 3 or 4 more weeks before I get the high-speed access back up and running.
Anyway, I've converted and posted more than half of the episodes to RealMedia G2 (and later RealMedia 7) format. I intend to finish this process out.
I've learned a lot about video capture / compression / posting, etc since my last post (the episode "God Save the Queen"). I've also received more than one request to convert to mpeg format.
Well, I'm going to start putting my newfound knowledge to use. Expect the next several captures to be much better quality.
And now for the big news! I'm going to start a web page VERY soon that will have all the episodes listed, showing a small screen snapshot from the episodes, time length, description, and links to places to download the files all in one. This will be very similar to how the Star Trek ASF files are listed at www.supplex.com (go check it out for reference). When it is ready, I'll post the web address here.
Also, I'll be changing the way they are posted so people can download in pieces and reassemble offline so as to not be such a huge drain on dial up systems.
And finally, we'll start having more permanent storage areas for people to start downloading the episodes, instead of trying to catch them in the newsgroups.
