Sesse: the day _before_, i.e. what you referred to as "initial seeding" :)

Sesse: I created the torrent and did initial seeding to two others, after that it was over 10-20 MB/sec peer dl speeds for the rest of the day. Right now it shows up as 220 seeds and 132 peers, so it's clearly still going. It also moved to other distributed trackers (so don't just look at what the legittorrents.info-page says).

...because it had to be posted.

In reply to this documentary Michael Moore stated he will do a documentary about the separatist North American Scene (tm).

Thanks for releasing this!

Second half is properly mostly for people interested in the Hungarian demoscene, and that part mainly made me think: "Why isn't there something like this for other countries, looking back at the demoscene history".

Guess the answer is that making good stuff like this really takes a lot of time.

Where did you get such an info?

Neat. A bit heavy on the Hungarian demoscene self-love, but still, pretty damn good documentary overall.

I wonder, did they use my Koalizer(tm) filter to do those c64-ish still frames, or something else? If they did use it, that would be cool. =)

sol_hsa: well, it was originally for a Hungarian-but-non-scene audience :)

sol_hsa: This was used for the c64 styled stills:

Ok, cool =) that seems to perform error diffusion as well.

Plus minutes spent watching and judging other entries in the competition.
I mean, it wouldn't be fair if one just voted for Moleman without checking other entries, right?

(yeah, I know that all internet-based voting is bullshit, I just don't wanna be a part of it)
