The best thing you can do is try searching for them on Gnutella or eDonkey.

I've been occasionally uploading the shows to the Conspiracy Central (http://www.conspiracycentral.net:6969/) BitTorrent tracker site, and from there they could have made it to other P2P networks.  You have to do the free registration thing to download via CC.  I stopped uploading there about a week ago, unfortunately, due to some weird HTTP timeout issue that now went away.  I've pushed the most recent shows there just an hour ago, so those BitTorrent downloads will not be fast at first, but if you're patient they'll pick up eventually.

As a last resort, you can try downloading them here (http://www.alexlibman.com/ftl/).  I hope the download speed from that HTTP server will be decent, but no guarantees.  If someone can put up a more capable mirror, please do.

Hope that you get your FTL fix sooner rather than later, but this may be a good chance for all of you to check out sites, nhfree and others, that you've heard about but haven't made time to visit.

I was thinking before that we could combine these two boards.

There seems to be a LARGE amount of cross posting from the smaller membership of NHFREE users.

It would, at least, cut down on the number of open tabs in my firefox browser.  ;)

FTL and NHFREE have two different demographics with only a moderate bit of intersection between them. It doesn't strike me as a good idea.

They certainly have a different feel.

I will rarely venture into the FTL forum. It reminds me of Free Republic (which isn't a compliment).

Indeed. FTL has a LOT of people who haven't quite figured out this freedom and liberty thing yet.

This forum has far fewer of them, though there are still a couple I can think of offhand who post frequently.

That would also be why some people stick mainly to one or the other. Simply because that is where we feel most comfortable. I happen to like the FTL forum more because we "shoot the shit" so often. It's a bonus for me that people tend to be a bit more like ravenous wolves in the FTL forum. :P

I seriously hope no data gets permanently lost...

:bow: :BangHead:


Anyway...

The FTL wiki (http://wiki.FreeTalkLive.com/) and the NHFree wiki (http://www.soulawakenings.com/underground/tikiwiki/tiki-index.php) are also quite different, right?  Otherwise, could be a benefit to merging them.  Some of the wiki growth factors are exponential, so fragmenting into several wikis results in lower total content growth.

No, it was neither. I made a little joke about FTL and then suggested that bbs.ftl should have this theme as an option, since the default ones are ugly.

Keene Population Info from Wikipedia:

In the city the population was spread out with 19.6% under the age of 18, 18.9% from 18 to 24, 24.7% from 25 to 44, 21.6% from 45 to 64, and 15.2% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 35 years. For every 100 females there were 88.2 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 83.8 males.

Plenty of opportunities abound!   8)

I wouldn't make hot girls that want to go on dates the deciding factor between here and FTL.  Unless I missed something, there are very few or no girls that are hot and willing to go out on dates on our BBS. 

Also...

I've watched Days of Our Lives for 13 years now.  Yes, I was six.  My 14 year old cousin spent the summer with us and forced me to watch it daily.  I've been addicted since. 

And...

I almost didn't bother signing up here either, since I have no plans to move to New Hampshire any time in the near future.

I don't know though. I think she'd go with me, but I don't think we would be happy there.
Part of the reason that we want to move out of Indiana is that we both hate the winters here.

Now I'm on my feet again
Better things are bound to happen
All my dues surely must be paid
Many miles and many tears
Times were hard but now they're changing
You should know that I'm not afraid

Ooh, I want you to stay
Ooh, I want you today

I'm ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
I'm ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Oh, for your love

Thank him for me Ian. I really appreciate the hardwork he does.

Thank him for yourself.  I'm sure he'd appreciate that more.

He really does work for free, so please send him your appreciation.

I know he really works for free, I said thank him for me because I figured you were chatting with him directly Ian..jeeze. I used to IM with him all the time but I haven't seen him in forever on YM or on the FTL message board. Guess I'll e-mail him then.

Hm, in retrospect, maybe it was a bad idea to put the FTL web site on Clear Channel's old email server... ;D

Okay, I'm kidding. But it seems like major outages like this only happen to sites running Windows....

That couldn't possibly have anything to do with it, right? er... :icon_crashcomp:

He likes to hide, is why you don't see him.  He's the radio monkey.   :icon_pirate:

All I know is I would never run a serious web site, from which I intended to make money, on Windows. And if I don't know something I need to know, then I go learn it fast.

And while I've had outages, they've measured in minutes, and rarely hours, (e.g. when a third-party provider fails (http://www.homelandstupidity.us/2006/10/27/homeland-stupidity-unscheduled-downtime/)) but never days.

I own and manage two domains, both of which are strictly for hobby and fun. When I picked hosting services, my first criterion was "no Windows servers!"

Ian,
On the FTL board I posted to you more than once about the "proper" setup -- RAID+5, and hot backups.
It's not that expensive to do, an ensures this kind of thing will never happen again.

Raid 5 has the disadvatage of slow writes to the disks. I would suguest that it should use RAID 1 or Raid 10. Raid 10 is a bit expensive because to do RAID 10 you need a minimum of 4 disks. Raid 1 is mirroring so you need only 2 disks. I would also like to warn that I would not use windows to perform the Raid the performance of the OS will suffer. You can pick up some hardware Raid for a fairly low cost.

Well, maybe not, as this happened as a result of the system getting corrupted, so no amount of RAID would have been the solution.

Torgo and I will be discussing server redundancy later today.

So it WAS Windows! You should discuss getting rid of that plague on your server. ;D

Shit!  I posted one of my silly "assassinate Bush" jokes (http://bbs.freetalklive.com/index.php?topic=11552.0), and it went down a few minutes later!   ???

Seriously, though, I don't think it has anything to do with that, because I use my real name and am very easy to track down, and I'm still here...  Still, weird.


EDIT:  nah, I'm not scared, not one millibit.  Won't give them the satisfaction.  Just annoyed the server is down.  But, needless to say, we can put up forums much faster than they can take them down!

This is a completely different issue limited to just the FTL forum (http://bbs.freetalklive.com/index.php), but I just love bumping old threads...    :icon_pirat:

This time it's a session tracking bug.  Trying to post a reply or start a new thread / poll results in endless "your session timed out while posting" errors.  Also "quote" button is giving me a JS error (with Quick Reply enabled).  I guess the problem started ~2 hours ago (6PM EST), which is when the last post (http://bbs.freetalklive.com/index.php?action=recent) went through.
