December 24, 2018 –
Hi everyone! I have decided to reopen this website with some changes as you can see. My main reasons for closing the first site were due to the ISP, software and money.
ISP I won’t get into, but the software on the site was horrible. There were corrections that needed to be made on a constant basis, and I could not do it. The people I bought the software from wanted several hundred dollars for each correction!
Now, in relationship to the shows, I only have ~150 uploaded out of five or six hundred. Each show has to be converted from an flv format to an mp4 (h.264) format. This increases the file size by 30%, so normally; each file upload is around 130 megabytes in size.
Plus, I have to review each show for content. The old files all look like this – 13072959941c479.flv. The old software would convert each upload to the flv format with no indication what the show was!
So I know some of you are chomping at the bit for your favorite show to be reloaded, but I can’t do anything about it. Each show has to be converted, and then I watch the content to identify the show.
I then upload each file, and then place it into WordPress which takes around thirty minutes per file. Sadly, but with some patience from you, I should have everything back up by March or April.
So, we are here with a WordPress website. So far, I like what I see. What do you think? Please register and comment! I am sure there is plenty of room for improvement which I look forward to!
And finally, and to not to belabor the point, but would you please help me with the cost of maintaining this website? I have a PayPal page which you can find on the menu bar, above, and here. Please help and thank you!
