Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

summary - if you are interested in this, find someone on the board with a umich email address/use a dorm address and a pre-paid debit card that isn't tied to a billing address so they can't say you don't actually live there. A pain in the rear but worth it if you're looking to save money.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||commercials were cut out||
recording was made from ABC/ESPN network feed - so there is no commentary during commercial breaks.
I haven't had a recording that includes the commentary since the 2010 Illinois game - I have to call in special favors for those, which I'm not sure I can do anymore because I haven't talked to the guy who did them in a few years.

|5 weeks 2 days ago||great question||
a torrent is a unique file that has some interesting properties. One way to think about a .torrent file is that you're actually downloading a telephone book of sorts - the .torrent file contains a few things - the address of a relay point, where both sharers and downloaders address make a connection to each to download the desired content.
when you download a file from the internet, chances are you're making a direct connection to the place where you're downloading something from. A .torrent file works a little bit differently - you'll need a program to open the .torrent file (uTorrent has historically been pretty popular) and that program will interpret the data within .torrent file to connect to a relay point, which will then establish a connection to someone who is sharing the file.
Torrents are considered Peer-to-Peer - while the relay acts the intermediary, the connection is facilitated through uploaders and downloaders. There is no direct connection through a website, everything is decentralized to an extent through the .torrent file.

2011 was the start of the raw .ts captures for me.

In Brandon's defense, $100 million will be put into new non-revenue sport facilities. UofM prides itself on having Olympic caliber varsity level teams, they think it raises the prestige of the school. Here's the problem though - attendance levels and fundraising at non-revenue sports is not covering the operating costs and future costs for facility improvements!
If the athletic department thinks its within it's mission for football to subsidize Olympic caliber facilities for all these non-revenue sports, then it needs to solicit funding from former athletes of those non-revenue teams. They've treated the football fans as consumers (instead of fans) - consumers are then more apt to vote with their dollar. His strategy is wrong. He needs to subsidize the operating expenses of non-revenue sports by fundraising from alums of that group - not diluting the experience for football fans.

the NCAA tends to decide things on a case by case basis, and I could see them sympathizing with a mother and a desire to attend a game to see her son play. Exhibit A, in which the NCAA tends to decide things on a case by case basis, and has worked out in our favor, Devin's medical -
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||that's ridiculous||
are you seriously questioning the legitimacy of a parent's desire to their son play football? sure, many parents live far away from where their students and never see them play (and they are medically able to fly). that's their choice. but to be unable to do so because of a medical condition is entirely different. She isn't driving to California for a game. If the physician that cares for her deems her unable to fly, who are you to say otherwise?
Isaac can get the waiver because it is compatible with the 'spirit of the law'. It doesn't need to meet the 100-mile requirement because the NCAA has historically decided matters on a case by case basis.
|8 weeks 17 hours ago||waiver is important||
people on Rivals saying he won't get it, I believe the NCAA could grant it, if they wanted to (because they can)
when will we know, either way?
|8 weeks 4 days ago||ya||
I'll upload that and the 2012 msu game at some point this summer.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||yep||
heh. just upgraded to 5x4TB drives in a RAIDZ2 array. Yeah, there are more games coming. Lots more.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||well||
I can think of worse debuts for a 19 year old quarterback making his first start.
Perhaps there is something to that better than expected performance?
|42 weeks 3 days ago||yes||
the short answer - yes. I want to spin this off into its own seperate platform but I think there's an underlying seeding problem that's universal for public facing bittorrent content. i think this problem is worth examining (and solving) because i truly believe in open source data, with the video being the lego blocks for something even greater.
the best days are ahead of us. ive tried to learn programming from a book (and failed) more times than I can count. projects like this are the only way i can learn. i've recently gained a bit of free time on my hands, so this will be a fun project.

11-1 regular season. Only loss is to Penn State.
We beat Ohio, twice. NC bound. We lose in the NC game though.

just noticed that as well. I remember standing next to him at a house party and thinking 'I'm in better shape than this guy'

haha thanks, I didn't know if you wanted to be included in the OP for security/privacy concerns and I opted on the side of caution...but yes, thank you for sharing this!

I'm guessing Thorin will upload them to the Chinese YouTube.

|1 year 11 weeks ago||glacier would be used for||
glacier would be used for long term storage, once the 10TB NAS is filled. They'd have to know what they're looking for via file checksum because the filenames would be random on glacier and they aren't publically facing. Only the person who has the AWS credentials would have access to it.
honestly, if we fill 10TB, I'll probably build another 10TB NAS. If we hit north of 10TB, that means the project was a resounding success beyond my wildest expectations, and I wouldnt have a problem shelling out a few bucks out of my wallet (heh, come to think of it, I'm kind of bankrolling the whole thing already)
if the NFL/NCAA won't give a fans a way to educate themselves on how the game is being played and perform independent analysis (http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2012/01/what-the-nfl-wont-show-you/252240/) then we will build it ourselves.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||heh||
I've got about 10TB of free space on a ZFS NAS I've built.
We'd probably use Glacier (http://aws.amazon.com/glacier/) for long term storage.

proper usage and application of those services/technologies allow interesting...possibilities.
Google 'Silk Road and Bitcoin' for more information.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||except it isn't digital...||
when it hits the M-Card, it's still digital, yes. But the Hauppauge HD PVR is recording the analog signal that come out of the component cables that carry the HD signal. It's...a sloppy implementation. I'm pretty sure they have a broadcom chip that does on the fly H.264 encoding, but keep in mind you're losing I-Frames and B-Frames during the encoding process, which are essentially for frame accurate advances.
It's like recording audio from line-in. You lose the metadata that you'd otherwise have if you stuck it in the DVD drive in your computer.
*Edit - I realized I phrased the OP poorly with respect to 'better'. The implementation I'm using for capture is better than what the Hauppauge unit is capable of.
