Whatever floats your boat...
I figure this probably won't be seen by anyone... unless I push it out through the mail system... but I was thinking about in a year period no longer paying for the Ark. It seems that some folks have moved on, some folks are not getting along, some folks grew up, and some folks are smarter than the guy keeping a candle lit.
My plan was to send out notification to everyone that the Ark has a year, I've actually been practicing with AI software to convert and upscale old videos to modern formats and resolution. I was planning to ask anyone who wanted their videos (not on vimeo or youtube) saved before the Ark goes dark. I would pull them down and offer the service of running them through AI enhancement (gratis) and I would provide the original and upgraded saves to them so that no one loses their stuff as the result of the Ark being taken down (something some folks already experienced when LV went down.)
So I decided to go grab my favorite video of Blanch with her balloons, and AI enhance it, as a test example showing the AI enhancement possibility. Then I saw it. The glorious comments. I had not planned for the loss of the fantastic and entertaining interactions. So I guess we will give this old boat a bit more time adrift on the water. I may push this message out there in the mail system yet. I am curious to see if it is that tree in a forest no one saw fell. If anyone has ideas about those comments, let me know. I might suggest folks go screen shot some that they find particularly entertaining.
I so hope that everyone is enjoying the best of health and the grooviest things in life. Captian out.
