Would it be possible for there to be a batch download next year? It would be nice to be able to download all the videos at once.

Per coderjoe's suggestion, I tried using downthemall and I must say it works quite well for setting up a batch download. I had it download the vids while I slept last night and other then having to log back in this morning to grab 5 more vids that it couldn't DL before my connection died, it grabbed them all just fine. Give it a try.

I have all of them in a single .7z file... it ended up being 6.38 gigs... but i don't have an easy way to host "random" files... ie not tied to a video... with this site yet.

The only thing that I can think of is to make a torrent for it, but that would require people to seed it.

Quu, if you make a torrent of the MP4s, I'll join it to help seed. Don't know why I didn't think about that earlier.
Can we get a private tracker for it? Don't really want it blasted all over the interwebs.

Damn fine idea, Kireblue.

the private tracker is the "hard part"... i would also want to add some sort of authentication to the tracker. Seeding the torrent is the easy part. Also, allot of this is manual... where the current page is dynamically generated for you

I think Coder had the best route for now. Just install the plugin and grab em all that way. Its simple to setup and will get the job done quickly.

Let the digital 1s and 0s be free. Hit them open trackers! If any companies come knocking just claim you have no idea what these things are! =p

AWA pro voting has started (officially it starts at midnight, but I opened it early while I am awake incase someone finds problems)... I actually sent out an e-mail to everybody in the pro contest with the information
Category creation will begin September 1st and will last until the 7th of September.
Nominations will begin September 9th and will last until the 18th of September.
Final voting will begin September 20th and will last until the 26th of September.
The winners will be announced at the convention on October 1st in the main events room.

and on a side note... the expo deadline is still 9/2, but I won't actually close the submissions for expo on my site until Monday. It is a Dragon Con weekend, so in honor of the liver and brain cells that will die over this weekend, I will deal with expo when dragon con is over.

My video has been pending for over 24 hours now. Is this typical, or was I supposed to do something?

It can be pending for a WHILE, it comes down to when Quu can check them. But he's not a meanie, if there's a problem he'll let you know.
