Episode Status Report

Here's some post-Super Bowl news for you: Chrontendo Episode 36 is more or less "done" in terms of content, and just needs to be checked, compressed, and uploaded.  As mentioned a few posts back, I started a new job on Monday, and all the attendant stresses have taken their toll on me.  But it's now time to pull myself together and focus on finishing Episode 36.  So, I'm thinking... maybe tomorrow night?

(2/7/2011 - Not all the formats are uploaded yet, so Chrontendo 36 will not "officially" out until tomorrow night. But impatient types can check the usual places.)

Whatever happens, I won't be able to watch until Thursday night anyway. So no rush on that coming from me.

Take your time, and do it right. We understand you've got other priorities that come first. Thank you for doing this project - we all need brief escapes from the rest of our lives, and this one takes me back to a time when just designing a game in so limited a space was a game more complex than chess.

Take your time, this level of scholarship can't be rushed.

(also, "jobs" are overrated)

Dr. S,

I just saw episode 36, top class as usual.

I have a request, though. You've stopped putting the list of games covered in the video description on archive.org. I've found that useful if I want to go back and rewatch a single segment. Would it be possible to have that again?

Also, there is a typo in the segment about the Kelly Family. You left off the last zero in 20,000,000.

Thanks! And keep up the fantastic work.

EPIC EPISODE WHAT WHAT? Great job Doc Sparkle. As you said, it's all down here from now. So take some time to reflect on all you've accomplished so far. Or maybe do some more Chronturbos for a period.

Anyhow, THANK YOU! SMB3 == true love.

One additional note about Jeopardy!:
When the computer players don't know an answer and type gibberish, they type the number of characters in the correct answer and often show several of the letters of the correct answer, too, giving you the chance to fill in the blanks ala Wheel of Fortune.

And yeah. Final Jeopardy! was really lame and you had to send people out the room or make them cover their eyes. :-\

"You've stopped putting the list of games covered in the video description on archive.org."

- Not intentionally, but perhaps due to neglect. The description for Ep. 36 now has all the games listed.

Arthurgolden - I noticed that it did that sometimes, but was not always very helpful. In the clip in Ep. 36, an answer is "Cosmopolitan" and Beryl answers "*!*!*!?*!T "

I guess it randomly provided a few correct letters and filled the rest with symbols and punctuation, including spaces.

Thanks for putting the games list back! I appreciate it.
