Some of you may have noticed that none of the direct download links are working. This is because despite having unlimited hosting, the fact that there has been over 2000gb of bandwidth used for the wemakestorm.net domain in just the past 12 days my host has cut off service to that domain because it has caused issues for the server.

The only option at this point is to go to a private server, which would cost over $100 a month for the current usage of the site.

Unfortunately, the community at large will have to suffer for the actions of a few. In no way am I going to sit here and throw a hissy fit about people "not reading the rules" and this didn't make me have a panic attack or anything of the sort. Am I disappointed? Of course. But I also knew this was a possibility.

Hotlinking has been the major issue. Hotlinking will ALWAYS be a major issue. There's no way around it.

I will be systematically going through the comm in the coming weeks and deleting any post that has direct links on it. The ONLY ones I will be replacing will be my own DVD rips/scans.

Subsequently, I am taking a break from encoding. School has started up again and there is a lot more work than I'd originally anticipated and a lot I need to focus on. I will still be doing personal DVD rips and sharing those, but hosted only on MU and MF.

I apologize to those of you who have been watching the community since the beginning that it had to end this way. last_of_days will still be uploading weekly shows so I suggest you head over there and join if you're not already a member.

It's been fun, but all good things must come to an end. penguin

Please feel free to do as you like with these scans, no credit necessary. I simply ask that you do not try and pass them off as your own, because I will know that these were the ones I worked on. :)
This is something that has been bugging me for a while, and I think the biggest problem right now is people don't understand the differences in the way video is produced. More than once, I've had someone ask me for the "HD" of a pv, even though I've uploaded the DVD rip, which is just about the highest quality you can get.

So I've decided to explain it a bit to help people understand the differences between DVD rips, Television Streams (Analog and HDTV) and why some things are in huge frame size while others aren't, but of the same quality.

Analog vs. HDTV, what's the difference?Collapse )

.ts, .mp4, .avi??!!! What happened to .mpg?Collapse )

I want HD PVs!!! I'll wait for the HD of THIS concert!Collapse )

Why is VS Arashi So Much BIGGER?!!!!Collapse )

Will You Teach Me How to Encode?!!!Collapse )

I hope this has been at least somewhat informative and not just a lot of babble as it may well be.

Long time no post!

The little dry spell of Arashi shows has given me time to relax and not have to worry for a bit, but things are picking up again!

So to tide you all over until VS is done encoding (omfg... so long) and 5x10 gets here, I bring you Bay Storm & Arashi Discovery from this week. If you hadn't heard already, Ohno played Monster on Discovery, so I cut it out. Honestly, I'm not too fond of it. Perhaps a PV or lives will help me warm up to it.

As of tomorrow, my husband and I will be homeowners. As such, life has been VERY hectic the past few week. Uploads have slowed down here, but I'm not stopping. In fact, I'm currently working on uploading last week's HNA in HDTV as we speak, and downloading ANS in HDTV.

Tomorrow I will be having FiOS internet installed at the new house and setting up my desktop there, so hopefully things should be SEMI back to a normal posting rate. I hope. XD I have a lot on my plate with painting and moving things into the house, but hopefully I'll be able to jump on to post the uploads, etc. randomly.

I only expect this delay to last approximately two more weeks at the most. :)

Thank you all again for your support and happy downloading. ^_^b

A little something I ripped for myself for repeated enjoyment over and over and over (and over...did I mention over?)

This is HQ and includes the intro.

Here on MU.*

*Fixed the file, I forgot to cut out the silence at the end. OTL


(Leaving this one unlocked, so pass it around if you'd like. :D)

Currently uploading the Himitsu special.

Special PVsCollapse )

All PVs, with the exception of the specials (and then excluding the Animation film of Believe) are personal rips from either the 5x10 Clips collection or DVD LE singles.
