Old Episodes Gone?
« on: June 14, 2013, 05:36:44 AM »
It seems like a lot of the old episodes got wiped out when BlueHost was having problems a while back.  Is there any chance that someone saved them and can re-upload them?
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Is this still an issue?  I have 84 files in my BG folder that I can upload if you've got a spot for it.

That would be most excellent.

Is this still a possibility from someone? I had all the episodes on my old external HD but have since lost that to time.

We can get them back up but may not have all of the actual episodes ourselves. Does someone have them and could send me a message??

I had the episodes in my dropbox for a while but removed them to free up space. Now I've created a torrent instead, which is a much better solution all around. You can get the .torrent here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fd5h29hokretikp/Brilliant%20Gameologists.torrent

I believe that's all the episodes, but I might be missing one or two bonus sodes or such.

You should seed it :P

It.... is being seeded. My computer is seeding it, and shows 3 seeds total.

Weird, I can't download any of the actual content.  I can get the metadata just fine, but after that my download speed has been 0 for two days.  Other things seem to be working fine though.

Well, they are fairly large files, and there's few seeders. Is your torrent showing any seeding activity?

Ok, I found yet another issue (absurdly limited upload speed), which I fixed. Hopefully that will help.

Ok, my computer is set up stupidly, and the torrent got fucked on my end, meaning I had to make a new torrent, as I doubt anyone has been able to completely download the original.

I have literally no clue as to whether the newly created torrent will be treated as the same torrent (though I doubt it will be), so here is the new torrent link, hopefully it just (re)adds my computer as a seeder and nothing gets fucked https://www.dropbox.com/s/fd5h29hokretikp/Brilliant%20Gameologists.torrent

(the problem was that my torrenting stuff is all on an external which is plugged in via a usb hub, and if I plug something new into said hub it refreshes everything, so my external was briefly disconnected, which meant that uTorrent could suddenly not find the source file. The source file is now on my desktop, so this should not happen. Although that said, I will be far more careful about this all in the future)

Ok, scratch that. A torrent for this is just ridiculous. I've put them in my Dropbox, because I have plenty of space, so you can go here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qva3qqs87k9yr5t/AADNbn1z9S625TFHEgHlQdCka and download them directly.

I tweeted this out to Meg, but it looks like the BGs are less active on twitter these days. It just occurred to me that Sound Cloud would be a good accessible home for the episodes that doesn't eat up my bandwidth or dropbox storage. What do people think?

I checked the dropbox, but it doesn't have all the episodes.  2 and 20 are missing, iirc.

I do like the soundcloud idea though.

I'll have to look, but I downloaded several of the podcasts circa 2008 when I first got an iPod.  I may have several of the c. 2008 files on my iMac.  I'll try to take a look when I get a chance... (maybe over Christmas break...)

Someone would have to walk me through how to upload them somewhere useful to others.

If meg is okay with it, uploading to google drive and making them publicly accessible works.  4shared is also pretty easy to use.
