From LG15.com

Hey guys, there was some mis-communication on our side. Here's what's happening:

1. We are uploading all the content to the new site. We did "The Resistance," "The Last," and "lonelygirl15." Next up is "KateModern," and then "OpAPHID."

2. We will continue to provide links to the old "Resistance"/"Last" site so you can read the old comments, but you won't be able to sign-up or login. This is because we aren't supporting that old codebase and we don't want to split the user database between the old and new site. All community interactivity and new LG15 series will occur on the new site.

3. We will continue to provide a link to the old lonelygirl15 phpBB forum. If you already have an account you can login. You can't sign-up for a new account. There is some SQL error and we aren't supporting those servers or code and we don't have time to fix it.

4. At some point we'll move the old comments from "Resistance"/"Last" and the old lonelygirl15 forum threads over to the new site. I don't know how long that will take or exactly what it will look like and how it will all work together when it's done. It's more complicated than you think.

Thanks and hope you are loving "Outbreak" as much as I am!

LG15: Outbreak - I AM SO SCREWED. - Will

Today, I got pulled aside from work. Usually this happens when someone is either about to get fired, or promoted.

Why The iPad Is Crap Futurism


The convergence device, which people began to discuss seriously in the 1990s, would be a unified gadget where you could consume many kinds of media, especially TV and the web, with the same gadget.

The Prestige of the Pad. I mean the Page.

Posted by Taryn O Neill

Everything is consumed on a portable tablet of some sort, the lines of corporate and self publishing blurred....how do we find the new Salinger, the new Fitzgerald, and if we find them, will we accept them as such if there isn't the corporate stamp of physical approval behind them?

The Web.Files #28 - A Comicbook Orange

Kristyn Burtt Web.Files

On this week’s episode of The Web.Files, Kristyn Burtt interviews Casey McKinnon and Rudy Jahchan from A Comicbook Orange. The interview moves rather quickly and even if one has never seen A Comicbook Orange, the duo is engaging enough to warrant a look. Also, once again the Web.Files crew went crazy with the editing and visual effects, which really made for an interesting interview. Oh, and make sure to watch all the way to end, to hear a little bit about Casey McKinnon’s time working for the United Nations.

Hosted by Casey McKinnon, A Comicbook Orange is now in its 5th season and features comicbook news, reviews, and interviews with industry leaders. Originally a part of Galacticast, the show spun off into its own series in 2007 as part of Next New Network’s Pulp Secret comicbook site. In 2009, the series returned as an independent project.

LG15: Outbreak - Lazy Wednesday (aka Where I Went) - Crystal

Life is boring when you don't have a job, and it's too cold to go outside and do anything. Too be honest, I feel like a pack-rat...like I've been stuck in a hole and left to rot. Maybe it's just the early stages of cabin fever, but for whatever reason, I REALLY wish things would stop being so boring around here.

Outbreak Adds Some Flare to the LG15 Universe

Editor's review by Liz Shannon Miller

The narrative so far is pretty light, with the focus on building up character taking precedence even over kinda-big plot developments like the Eiffel Tower being destroyed, but the fan interaction and use of text and video content is classic LG15.

Copyrighted videos deleted

About a week ago i got a warning from youtube about one of my Dark Angel fanvideos, saying it was copyrighted by Fox broadcasting studio and promptly muted, Today i got another warning and had to remove all the dark angel fan videos from my channel because if i did not my channel would be deleted. Eventually i will probably get flagged for using supernatural clips that i do not own in videos and the entire point of my channel would be pointless. I made fanvideos, I am not breaking the law..

Do you guys honestly think it's fair that my account is getting flagged?

Level 26: Tarot Card Contest Winners



Posted by Anthony E. Zuiker

However, before we get to that, I know a lot of you are wondering about the last contest and the fact that we still don’t know who won the football pool, and won’t, until the Super Bowl two weeks from now. So, here’s how this is going to work, without giving anything away:
 


We won’t be judging the final contest until AFTER the Super Bowl. So, we’ll know who won the Sqweegel Football Pool BEFORE the final contest is over.


As I said, the final contest results won’t be in my hands, they’ll be in yours. We know there are rumors about teams planning to pad their votes by creating fake accounts. Know this: If you do that you will be disqualified. We have ways of knowing who is creating the accounts and we will be monitoring the situation. If I feel like I can’t trust the community to be fair, I will simply judge the final week myself. Let’s keep it fun, guys!

LG15: Outbreak: Headaches, Back Pains, and Hardware Failure - Will

But whatever, I manage to pull myself together and go to work, camera in hand.

...but then, things REALLY fell apart.

Since I haven't put the video up yet, I wont spoil it for you, but just know that I spent the entire day working overtime, desperately trying to repair half of the office's systems.

Which, of course, leads to back pain, seeing as how I spend 90% of my time sitting, 9% lifting heavy boxes, and the other 1% proving Murphy's Law true.

Oprah vs Umbrella

Today speculation in the community turned to how well Eqal's Umbrella platform will handle the deluge of visitors that are expected to visit The Kind Life when Alicia Silverstone appears on Oprah. Will it hold up to this major stress test? We are sure the code gnomes at Eqal are hard at work this week tightening the nuts and bolts so that Umbrella will be in ship shape before its big test on Wednesday.

A segment on "Food, Inc.," a documentary critical of the food industry, features author Michael Pollan ("Food Rules"), who appears in it. Also: Chipotle Mexican Grill founder Steve Ells on nutrition; Alicia Silverstone on her cookbook, "The Kind Diet."
