What’s Going On?

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to provide you all a quick update on how things are going. As you may/may not know our main dev computer has been in repairs for 4 months. (Sounds crazy right?) Around 80% of the parts have been replaced due to errors on the vendor’s side. We also experienced a GPU Failure upon getting the rig back to the office and the card is now on it’s way to germany with no ETA on when we will get it back. Until we do we are using a mid-ranged card to do basic streaming and James has been awesome with ensuring content is streamed every other day on twitch.tv/flobname. We have been unable to render videos using the mid-range card as the stuff we want to do is pretty complex! We have also been working on a new sister venture which will share the air-time with FLOBName. We want everyone to know we are currently looking into the following…

1) Broken Server Banners on FLOBName.net (Yup this is a known issue we are working with our GSP to fix.)

2) Faster video uploads (we are currently awaiting for a new card. Until then we will be streaming content)

Finally… We wanted to announce we have reserved the name flobname on hitbox.tv to ensure that if twitch does get killed off by Google that we have the backups in place.
