Books are Awesome

I made a video fooling around with my books. I didn't post it on the next round since I'm not sure if it fit that type of content, but it was fun to make so here it is. Enjoy!

Raiden III High Score Challenge Was Answered

Looks like Duhmez wants to throw down. I leave for vacation soon. I'm going to answer this first thing when I get back. (I have one more attempt on scheduled release while I'm gone.)

So it looks like there is about two weeks on the table to beat a high score of approx 3.5 mil.

Hats of to Duhmez for joining in and making this game fun.

Bryan Lunduke: "They're Watching You"

Bryan Lunduke, who's 'Linux Sucks' talks got me to adopt Linux, gives a captivating talk about the state of data collection.

No solutions to  the problem are offered. Just lots of evidence of how screwed we all are. It's a good watch.

Testing Podomatic Embed

I am playing with the layout to try and get the Podomatic embed worked into the main page. Many years ago it was setup that way. I really feel like since this site is mostly focust on the production of Tiger Claw Radio, you should be able to click one button and have it play.

I'm still messing with it, but the archive still steams in from the player down at the bottom.

TL;DR: Don't mind me. Just playing with podcast embeds.

9 Years on YouTube and now Vidme.

After 9 years, I finally feel like YouTube has become unusable. I'll still be uploading videos, but I am having more fun on Vid.me

Check out my Vid.Me Channel Here.

Mad Scientist Wheel Mod from LetsTestDrive

YouTuber “LetsTestDrive” released a video entitled “Logitech G27 Wheel Mod - How To Install Guide – Tutorial” where he took a racing wheel peripheral and replaced the wheel with a larger one. Even as person who mildly enjoys racing sims, this is some mad-scientist level modding.

LetsTestDrive's YouTube channel can be found here.

TCR Still alive on Podomatic

Just a quick message to those of you who listen to Tiger Claw Radio by Podomatic, or by the iTunes account that Podomatic sends out. To make up for TCR not coming out there over the last month, the four missing episodes are going up on Podomatic today, and it will henceforth be regularly updated.

Thanks and have a good day.

NES Classic Discontinued

By now I'm sure you have heard that Nintendo has pulled the plug on the NES Classic. Nintendo has now lived up to their long standing reputation of not producing enough hardware to go around and not fulfilling the market desire to have inexpensive versions of the games we grew up on.

I thought this thing was silly when it came out. The whole idea seemed to be founded on pretending the Raspberry Pi didn't exist. Now we say goodbye to the best console Nintendo has put out since the Wii.

Lol. GG Nintendo.

Follow-up to Metacritic’s 2016 PC Game of the Year features deep experience of Trenton’s historic successes, as well as those of hundreds of other major and minor league clubs

Out of the Park Developments, an official licensee of MLB.com, the MLBPA, and MiLB.com, today announced a strategic partnership with the Trenton Thunder, the Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. The partnership will further extend the rich authenticity that Out of the Park Baseball 18 offers fans, including the ability to experience each and every Major and Minor League club from every baseball season ever played, beginning in 1871 and continuing through 2017. In addition, Trenton Thunder staff and players will utilize Out of the Park Baseball 18 to run simulations and projections to provide strategic analysis as the 2017 season progresses.

Toying with YouTube Audio Only Embeds

I'm toying with the ID of embedding podcasts that are uploaded direct to YouTube in such a way that only the audio plays, and the YouTube video gets credit for the play. The instructions to do this can be found here.

Here is the latest episode of TCR, audio only, streaming directly from YouTube. Let's hope it works.

Edit: I have rolled this out with TCR 180, but I think the whole thing had limited success. It seems like some ad-blockers are blocking it. Oh well. At least the YouTube embed, although bulky in a webpage layout, still seems to work.

TCR Is Now Weekly

I just want to make sure this announcement was put out there, I have reached my funding goal thanks to my dear friends and wonderful people who are interested in TCR. Effective immediately TCR returns to weekly service.

I may play with the release date in the future, but for now we are going to stick with the Monday morning release I used to use. That means the next episode will be up in a few days. Thanks so much everyone. I'll see you on Monday!

TCR#175 goes up Tomorrow

Tiger Claw Radio #175 gets published tomorrow. Thanks so much to the couple of people who signed on to support the show on Patreon. For you guys, the mp3 is up already.

I still have to rescue my main assets from my old computer, but this episode felt like a return to form. Also thanks to everyone who made the last episode, along with the best of TCR, a couple of my most viewed (minute for minute) YouTube videos of the last couple weeks.

Thanks much and have a great day!

Forums Deleted After Nearly 10 Years of Service

TigerClawTV.com forums had been idle for quite some time now, but this was the place where I met several of TCR's long time friends for the first time. Darabka first reached out there, I first got to know Kaiser there (under the name Retroman), Doom night was organized there, Gooch and the Dooshebag had posts there, and so many more memories.

Because of inactivity, the forum was deleted without an email or warning. Again the service was not being utilized, but it really hurts to see all those old posts go. As of yet there are no plans for a replacement service, but I would like to see some sort of gathering tool appear on The Next Round, like a small forum or a chat box.

Thanks to everyone who was a part of my forum. Today is the end of an era.

TCR is now on Patreon

I avoided this for a long time, but Patreon is offering me the best solution to making time for TCR in an increasingly busy professional life. If I can take 20 bucks a month and return that to my family, I can produce 45 - 60 minutes every week. I am really excited about the new life this is going to breath into TCR. Thanks!

The Future of Tiger Claw Radio

I have spent the last couple of months working to revitalize my YouTube channel Tiger Claw TV. Most of the tools we had for networking back in 2008 have been crippled like video responses, clickable favorites in other peoples channels, working subscriptions, and things like that. Despite this, YouTube was where this all started for me, so there is where my effort lies.

However, I have also been working towards a consolidation of my efforts around a single space. I have recently dumped my three chiptune albums into video format to be added to my channel, and yes, there is TCR.

Doing a weekly podcast is entirely too draining and pursuing weekly shows would kill TCTV, however I am working towards bringing back TCR as a monthly program with a slightly different distribution method. YouTubenz. When I started TCR, it was much weirder to have a podcast directly on YouTube. But now, it seems much more feasible to maintain a TCR video series and have podomatic as an after thought for those who wish to grab the mp3 and here it in their car.

This is all still in progress, but I wanted to let my pals know that TCR is not dead. It will return.
