Now that Own3d is rumored to go down, a few things needed to be done. First, me and Lashknife sat together to try and save as many vods we could. We currently have 816 VODs on Own3d, but all VODs predating 1/1/2011 don’t load anymore due to problems at Own3d. This results in a loss of about 600 VOD’s. The remaining 200 have been safely reuploaded to Youtube. You can find them here.
The other issue was tv.holysh1t.net: we didn’t really look at it in a way we used to. I use the channel from time to time to stream something for a Dutch site or mostly what I feel like streaming, and once in a while I throw some Quake Live into the mix. Due to problems with Windows 8 and QL, I am unable to stream more Quake Live until Id Software does something about the performance. I don’t have the option to revert to Windows 7. Regardless, tv.holysh1t.net has been put to rest and in it’s place will be Ground-Zero TV.
This project started over 2 years ago to rid ourselves of the bad sounding name that was “holy shit”. During this project life got in the way and all but 1 had left Holysh1t. Now I am opening Ground-Zero.TV, a platform that I hope to build on and that will feature Quake Live primarily, but not limited to. For those who didn’t know yet, I can be booked and I will gladly convert demos into VODs and put them on our Youtube channel.
This should bring you up to speed about what has been going on lately. I am still looking for help! Any help is welcome, to maintain the site, post news, streamers, casters, you are all welcome. If you’d like to help out, please mail to inferno [at] holysh1t [dot] net.
Thanks, the management.
