  11. In the mid-80s, Aric Wilmunder worked on a collaborative project between LucasFilm and Quantumlink, later America OnLine, to create Habitat. Aric's job was to create the graphics engine and the system that showed the first-ever online avatars. Just recently, he was asked to figure out how the game's graphics worked. His work led to a tool that turns the old game files into images. Now, people can catch a glimpse of one of the very first online worlds and the cool characters drawn by Gary Winnick and maybe Ken Macklin too. https://www.information-superhighway.net/inhabitor/
  12. The idea to release these as podcasts doesn't have a clear schedule yet and that's why it hasn't been made public yet. If me asking people not to pirate my content after describing how hard I work on it is snippy, then sure, call me snippy. Regarding the thread bumps, I've typically responded to requests for specific interviews with links to my content. However, I'll ensure my replies remain limited to this thread if that's more preferable for you. You seem to be the one adopting a confrontational tone here. You were well aware of how your response might be interpreted, given that you suggested the mods delete it if it was deemed inappropriate. When you were trying to promote your game Lair Of The Clockwork God, I don't think you would have appreciated it if people would have replied with "Hey mods, delete if inappropriate, but you can download the game for free from this link...."
  13. Thank you for the kind words. I plan to start releasing all of my interviews as podcasts on Spotify / Apple Podcasts / etc. at the beginning of 2024 and from that point on, I'll release every interview as a podcast about a month after its YouTube premiere (I don't want to lose any YouTube views as they are important to the growth of our channel) If you use YouTube Premium, then you can listen to YouTube videos in the background. Or, you can wait for me to release them as podcasts at the beginning of 2024. You know, each interview takes up roughly 100 hours of my time, especially the lengthier ones. Typically, I dedicate about 40 hours to research, delving into previous interviews by watching or reading them. The actual recording process takes around 3-4 hours, while the bulk of the work, about 50-60 hours, involves editing, adjusting volume levels, and fixing audio issues. Considering the effort invested, the least I hope to get out of every viewer is one view on YouTube. Sadly, these niche interviews don't attract thousands of views, so every single view matters to me. Using YouTube-dl doesn't even guarantee that one view. But you do you.
