May 26, 2011 DYRL Settei Booklet posting until
November 12, 2011 Macross U Print Software.
And then I also updated the Macross SDF remastered series
episode 21 and up, some of the Macross Frontier TV series
and throughout the Macrosshare blog wherever updates were
needed.
Even markcell will have to update his massive music collection!

Macross Generation: First Half and covers Radio Play
Mika Kaneko - 2 Okunen mae no You ni Shizuka de ne CD Single VIDL-10221
Password: bymarkcell
Hiroko Kasahara - Mou Ichido Love You CD Single VIDL-10298
Password: bymarkcell

So, if you see a Macrosshare megaupload link and have already downloaded the
file, then please upload to a fileshare website and then post a weblink in the
comments section for that file on Macrosshare
and leave a message on the chatbox.
Then I will update the Macrosshare posting.
Mediafire seems to be a favorite, but it is USA based.
MultiUpload.com would work.
Rapidshare still works for me.
Thanks for helping!

I have just now renewed my Rapidpro account for the next 3 months.

otakubell.com 's great laserdisc cover archive is back online!
I am backing up the the Macross LD pictures this time.

Macrosshare Update:

1. Forum back up is going slowly due to me having too
much to do with work and family.
2. I am posting streaming Macross videos to offset
the slow re-uploads of missing Macross files.
3. Mediafire will be used to replace the Macross
files
4. If somebody sees some missing files that are not
from MegaUpload on Macrosshare, e.g. Robotech The movie avi,
then instead of posting in the comment
section of the Macrosshare post to tell me, please post in the
Macrosshare forum. I hardly have time to read the
older comments unless there are a lot of spam posts to clean up.

I've finished scanning another of Boinger's great books: This is Animation - Macross no. 1. I'm hoping to get more of the books done a bit quicker, work should be calming down a bit.

Well, it looks like my hosting has been pulled. I'm looking around for other places to put the books but I'm expecting everything to be down for a while. The person who gave me the hosting space sent me a letter to post, it's at the top of my site.

I've got backups of everything, once (if) I get a new host everything will be back, I'll just have to replace all the links.

Archive Scans is back up! (For the moment, at least)

I've gotten an account set up on Mediafire, I've got no idea if this will work long-term but it's working for the moment. I'm kinda worried that visitors downloading books from my site burnt through 50+GB of bandwith in 4 days though.

Here's another of Boinger's great books, This is Animation - Macross no. 2!

Edit 2 - I've re-uploaded to a free account. The links should work properly now.
Edit - I'm having technical difficulties with MF, please stand by.

No problem at all!

I'l going to get all of the content transferred over to a Seedbox today and will set up the torrents throughout the week. All future books, as well as all previous ones, will be run through torrents rather than Mediafire. The first few torrents may be a bit shaky until I can get everything figured out so please bear with me.

Edit - all content has been transferred and is online. Archive-Scans now runs using a dedicated Torrent server.

Yet another of Boinger's wonderful books: Macross - Do You Remember Love - Data Bank (aka The Gold Book). Really an incredible book, not just the content, even the print on the color pages has such high print quality that they turned out great.

Thanks again Boinger for making this possible!

At last! I have only ever seen this thing once in my life, in the Sheffield Space Centre where as I spoke to Rik Newman, he picked it up, browsed through it, exclaimed "this is as good as bought", and walked off to the cashier with it. Thank you!

Now to fiddle with torrent settings. I still can't use those things properly...

I'm glad we could help! Torrent is pretty easy to set up and use, it helps if you're behind a router with UPnP and/or know how to configure network stuff.

I've also gotten another booklet scanned: Macross 7 - Fire Bomber Book.

I may have drawn the characters incorrectly into Translator, it came out a bit odd and I guessed on that part. Thanks for letting me know, I'll update the info on the post.

Edit - There we go, I've changed the filenames in the torrent.

"Moving picture" is even more confusing, IMO.

"In-between collection" or even "Douga collection" would be fine, since enthusiasts know what those terms mean.

Thanks a lot for these scans, though!

The other option is "Animation Collection", but then that begs the question why didn't they title it "アニメ集"? It's really an odd title, as the stills in it are really not in-betweens, but more akin to key frames...


"Douga Collection" works for me, as it saves everyone the hassle of figuring out the optimum translation.

Hopefully now that I've got Google Translate more or less figured out I'll get the titles closer to correct in the future. Still a pain to draw kanji on a touchscreen with my finger though.

Here's another book: This Is Animation The Select - Macross Plus - Movie Edition.

Rapidshare has locked me out of my account and deleted my files, whether the files
were Macross related or not including the WM Cheng Modelling pdfs.
50% of Macrosshare blog is still online, which is the half run by the other
macrosshare admin s.
Forumer has deleted the Macrosshare forum posts
and transferred the new Macrosshare forum to Yoku.
The macrosshare forum was an IPB forum on server 19.
So, the original macrosshare forum is permanently gone.
http://fhq.forumer.c...9-oct-17-a.html

In the last week, somebody had logged onto the Macrosshare blog
directly to request Rapid points be sent to somebody's rapidshare
account. I don't know if somebody hacked the Macrosshare blog or one of the
other admin s decided to update the blog without telling me?
I know I didn't do that. But, I took down those rapidshare requests today.
The same week that there is a Macrosshare
blog post request for Rapid points that I never made is also the same week
that my Rapidshare account is locked and deleted.

So basically, I cannot be a Macrosshare admin anymore.

I will not be able to recover all of the lost blog post files.
I have most of my Macross files backed up, but one of my
hard drives died last month that had most of the Macrosshare HD audio and video files on it.
I thought that I could just re-download those files from my file locker account. Not any more.
To recover those lost Macrosshare files would take about a year or two
with my upload speed at 40-50 kb/s, if I can find those files again.

Also there were a lot of Macross files that are now permanently missing from
the Macrosshare forum that were never posted on the main blog. The forum
was not backed up because of the lack of convenient forum back up options and
it's just wasn't my responsibility as admin to maintain member files on the forum.
The Forumer company was recently bought out by the Yoku forum company. Last month,
Forumer was upgrading their forums by backing up forum servers 14,16 & 19 to an Amazon
cloud server and that Amazon cloud server crashed
and permanently lost the Macrosshare and many other forums.

The good news is that the Macrosshare blog has not been closed down and the other admin
blog postings are still intact. But, I'm not sure if I'm the right guy to run the Macrosshare
blog, since so many things went wrong without enough contingency planning.

Other Macrosshare admin.s have been notified.

I'm just asking, in case you need one of us to help you get those files. I have a lot of the episodes and movies saved on my computer, as do many others, I'm sure.

This is boinger, Macrosshare blog admin.

Somehow, when my computer crashed last week, Google lost my password and none of my other passwords
would work for my google account.
I cannot log onto the Macrosshare blog without my google account to do any updates and I cannot use my youtube account either.
(Update: requested name deletions) are the only two people who have admin authority
to re-instate me as admin and I have not heard received a response from their emails
for over a week now. I'll try emailing them again.

Google passoword recovery only works through cellphone SMS messaging now and I don't have a cellphone
that has SMS messaging. And because I no longer have access to my google account, I cannot update my profile to say that I don't have a cellphone through Google. Google has been giving me nothing, but automated email responses. I found Google's customer support number in the USA. I get to phone long distance because Google has crappy automated customer support.

I thought I could get Google to phone me instead (me phoning) them to avoid paying for a long distance phone call. Google is blocking the automated customer support phone service by not accepting any my credit card numbers?! Now I have to phone my credit card customer support to see if there is a problem with my credit cards!


************
Update:

My credit cards are okay!
And I was able to find a working Google customer support phone number:
"Live interaction with a Google account specialist
Call us at the number below when you are ready to talk to an account specialist. We will then prompt you to enter your confirmation code.

Phone number: 1-877-869-9191 (toll free in the US) or +1-404-978-8444"

Now, I just have to wait 2-5 business days for Google's response.

If Goolge will not give me back my old account, then the other
Macrosshare admin.s will have to re-instate my account using my new Google account.

Great!  I have this book back in the UK.  I believe it's got some storyboards for the action scenes of Episode 2 at the rear section.  I will try to download and check, because I think those are not in any other book.
