Yes, they do sage. I warned of this early on. I feel confident that you particularly understand the problem of limited data bandwidth, and are willing
to put aside your personal curiosity in order for the "mothership" to provide a fast and stable feed to all via YouTube and the stream I have put up
so far. I am already competing with scientists for that data, and am just barely, and I mean by the skin of my teeth, just barely able to achieve what
you guys have been watching. This will not be possible if the most persistent of you MUST, at all costs, obtain what I have, all else be damned, and
have it for yourself. Just one more person drawing on those same sources forces that data source to work twice as hard to deliver the goods to us.
Even if you are not drawing on the same channels, you are still forcing the data source to accommodate more users, and thus slowing the data delivery
It is the whole reason in the first place I have kept my mouth shut about this for all these years. And guess what? So far that silence has pretty
much worked. Now I have shared what I see with you all, in a way that doesn't compromise the source. I did so knowing the risks, that some people
would just not be content with what I have provided. No. Some people just GOTTA HAVE IT ALL, no matter what, and no matter who and what it affects.
So I ask one more time. Cease and desist, so that all may benefit from the feed. I am very well aware of the average delay time of every single
channel I have on that feed. I can already see it increasing. So it's this simple. Just STOP. Now. It is a willful decision I am asking you to take.
Yeah you get your pat on the back for persistence. Good job. But that still doesn't change the problem. We can't all do this. We just can't.
I'll bring the feed back up from time to time, but until the 24/7 server is in place, I have to be very careful with my system. I have decided I can't
leave it up while I'm at work. It's too much use on a very special and expensive system I have too much invested in, to waste on the feed. So yeah,
the YouTube channel is still there, and we need to keep up the contributions. We can do this. We're a third of the way there.
