The blackout notice thing appears during the commercial breaks as only the ads tied in nationally to J! seem to air and not the local ones for the Alabama area. Yes, the game is complete and it's good to know it's watchable with the shared link.

I'm not much for shopping around and experimenting. Originally I tried Open Broadcaster Software and did not like it. My next search turned up Bandicam and I liked the design and use of it. The free version had a 10-minute limitation. I paid $40 for full use on my one computer and I'm happy. No doubt there are free versions that could do the job. Camtasia did not turn up when I was doing my searching.
I haven't been able to get the file to play. Might be something to do with an international boundary between me and it. I clicked on the download button, and, after about an hour, it has downloaded about 97MB. We'll see what I end up with.

But that brings me to another idea. One which would be a very bad idea to discuss here.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Having the game air early in Montgomery could come in handy in case of some major news story breaking during the day that brings out total network coverage for hours on end. The guy on Reddit uses the Birmingham feed sometimes, which air at 2:30 Central. He must have a sense of humor, as he likes to leave in ads for a local personal injury lawyer I mentioned a while back, the Alabama Hammer.

This link has the 2/20/17 College Semifinal 1 game: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzJUVd ... sp=sharing

I tried to zap the commercials this time although I was a touch late for Alex's remarks before giving the FJ! clue.

The reddit guy has it uploaded. As usual ignore the thumbnail with the scoreboard spoiler and click in the middle.

You can watch College Finals Day 2 (2/24/17) here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzJUVd ... FicHM/view

Google Drive does seem to allow control over the thumbnail, so it shows the J! round scores. Blur your eyes and click in the middle without taking in the details.

I'm still working on my editing skills, but it should all be there and in order.

Thank you for posting the finale, Mark. I'm going to miss tonight's show and I don't have a recorder, so I'm really glad I got to see the end of this terrific tournament.

Just a heads up to everyone. I'm going to disappear from JBoard (and the internet and all media) starting on Wednesday. I'll be back or at least check back in around mid-April. You guys are great and I love each and every one of you, so don't take this personally. If you need to get in touch, you can still reach me by PM since that will get forwarded to my email.

For boardie mcsheffrey, I've still got your (first) game on my calendar and will upload it and any subsequent games. Best of future retro luck.

What? You're giving up JBoard for Lent?

Not JBoard specifically. But, yes, I'm taking advantage of the Lenten season to set some things aside for a time so I can pursue Spiritual questions and heavenly matters. For those keeping score at home, I'm not Roman Catholic. I'm formerly conservative Presbyterian and currently attending an Anglican church.

Why April 12th particularly? If my calendar isn't mistaken, mcsheffrey's first game is March 14th. In any event, I'll still be recording all the games. I just won't be watching them on their air dates.

But how will the CCs reach you to say that you've been chosen to tape????

Enjoy your rest opus. We look forward to your return!

I just picked April 12 since you said you'd check back around mid-April. It used to be bandied about on this board that maybe people should not post much between getting the call and taping the show, lest they post something on the board that draws the attention of the contestant coordinators and potentially endangers their spot. So anyone who suddenly disappears from the board without explanation can be suspected of going into a pre-taping blackout. Of course the show has relaxed their guidelines and now encourages people to tell others that they are going to be taping so this is not much of a concern anymore.

Easter is April 16, so his exile will end then.

Has anybody uploaded tonight's game? I've had a request for it, which I'm happy to fulfill. But if it's already up somewhere, I won't duplicate the effort.

I haven't done my daily upload (yesterday either) because I'm on the road.
