I DVR'ed the Wednesday, Oct. 19th game, but I just found out that it was preempted by severe weather warning that apparently stayed on for the entire half an hour at least. Since I assume Opus is gone already, can someone who knows the password PM it to me? Thanks in advance :)

Today's game is uploaded. I'll try to upload every game from now to November 10. Between sportsball and politics, I'm just going to assume that some markets got preempted.

That reminds me, anybody missing any games from the recent past? Let me know and I'll see if I can put it up. I've been out for two weeks over the last month, so service has been spotty.

Games for this week will be uploaded to the secret bunker (NOT the super secret bunker). I've already had a request for today's (Monday's) game, so I'll upload that. And I'm planning on Thursday's game as well. What other days should I plan on? Between football and politics, I'm losing track of what's getting borked up in people's schedules.
Thanks, I missed Monday first round for trick 'r treat. Missed Oct 27 TYVM for posting it, gotcha! BTW Is this an underground, windowless bunker? Finest kind! :lol:

Is there any way you could post last Wednesday's? They had the World Series game start at 7PM Eastern due to a big possiblity of rain and paying attention to both was harder than I thought it would be.

For you? Of course! I'll upload it to the super secret bunker later tonight:

No password required. I'm just waiting for Mrs Penguin to get off the phone. (The phone and the internet use the same connection. If I tried to upload it now, it would either degrade her call quality or the upload would be impossibly slow, maybe both.)

Thank you very much. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who watch only half-watching J! then.

Tonight's upload will be delayed. But with luck, I'll have it up by 10 Central Daylight Time. All you Cubs and Indians fans will be getting drunk by then, so remember to watch responsibly.

What a night! They broke into Jeopardy! for a severe thunderstorm warning right after the categories were announced. And they had an annoying crawl at the top of the screen throughout the game, even when they got back to it. So I decided to wait for the 7 p.m. showing on a different channel. That one came through without interruption. But there was something different about the video format that made it look lousy when I tried to compress the video to manageable size.

So I ended up compressing it again to a larger size--393 MB. But that made it too big to upload to the secret bunker. So I'm uploading it to another secret bunker:

https://vimeo.com/190031036

It's going to take a while. Current estimate is it'll be ready by 10:30 CDT. That's 11:30 EDT, so the Cubs will have had time to screw things up and be on their way home without a trophy.

Oh, and here's a screen grab from my local FOX affiliate's broadcast of the series. See if you can spot the problem.
