To start, I would like to say I am very sorry for no updates since Halloween. After getting back from the Con, November starts, and at my other job, things also get moving, and things get very busy, and certain events in life happening around the same time have to be tended to as well.
AnimeAMAZE Live Shows: Due to Scheduling, Live Shows are currently taking a bit of a back seat. I want to be able to at least get that going at some point, and if not a live show, at least toss some new music your way (Which I have been doing little by little here)
Videos and Images from the Con: Videos currently have nowhere to go yet. Thank Youtube and Youtube Red for this. They have been blocking my videos in several countries, and some are blocked entirely in the US. So until things get straightened out with that, the videos literally have nowhere to go, and I communicating with them is a lost cause. I have been at it now talking to them for weeks! No dice on getting video access lifted until Copyright holders reach an agreement with Youtube.
Images? Some pictures I did get are up on our Facebook Page which should be public access for anyone to see so you don't need a facebook account. I don't have one either...or do I?
When will live shows begin again? December is going to be looking like a good time to hammer out some live shows again. This month was getting back from the con, getting in contact with some people I met at the con for networking reasons, and some changes that may happen behind the scenes at AnimeAMAZE, but you will be posted. Also, I think my other family member (one of my bearded dragons) Seems to be doing better and is not on the verge of death anymore. Nursing him back to health has been a challenge, and he may hate me a little for trying to pry his mouth open to force feed him and give him medicine, but well worth it to save him!
I wanted to keep you all in the loop about what is going on and I am very sorry for taking a long time get this to you. Thank you for your support, and I would also like to say, thanks to Last years donors and amounts raised, we are all set this December for Shoutcast hosting! Of course if you would like to make a donation, please do! we can get started on next years donation call!
For people becoming sponsors, Sponsorship program will be changing as I am going to rework some things to offer sponsors something more! Keep an eye open for that as we enter 2016! Keep your eyes open for more updates!

Celebrate Halloween with AnimeAMAZE live from Bakuretsu Con with your host Sirby and a co-host, Mono. We will try to grab some people from the con and ask them neat questions.
If you would like a video feed, hop onto our live ustream page.
If not, this will still be a live show for our radio listeners as well. Pictures will be posted from Bakuretsu Con at a later time.

In the mail today we received a drive that is used (sender was not sure if it was lightly used or heavy use) to replace our broken one. So tonight I will pop that in, hope the RAID is pleased, and as long as the drive is repopulated, that should give us a bit more life to squeeze out of these drives.
And of course, if you have any drives or wish to help us get new drives to keep the station up and running, please donate!
The station should not go offline, it may slow down for a moment while the new drive is put in, but thanks to the way servers work and drive bays that are hot swap and such, it will be as easy as turning on the kitchen light...However, I have a bit of trouble turning on my kitchen light. There are three switches, and One is at the other end of the kitchen, one is by the sink, and another is behind the toaster oven, so my example is no good...
At any rate, thank you for the Hard drive Anonymous, and many thanks to all of you for your patience!

Our Streaming box has a degraded RAID array due to a bad drive that I was able to pinpoint this evening. I did find that I have some other drives I can use (also used) and they supposedly work. The problem is, they are different drive models than what was in the server, so popping it in to the array would not work. I have to redo things meaning more station downtime (backup can pickup)
Replacing the drives is priority! These drives were out of Warranty in March 2015 (Go figure! ) We are in need of some donations to get new Hard drives for the station. We need at least 2 of the same kind! I would feel comfortable with 6 all new, but at this point, getting this array fixed is top priority, otherwise station will be gone.
Currently our server has 2x SATA II 250GB WD Black Caviar Enterprise Drives, and 4x SATA II 1TB WD Black Caviar Enterprise Drives. We are down a 250GB.
In the meantime though, if you by chance have any drives that are lightly used and wish to donate, please get in contact with me by our email page, or if you want to help us get new drives, let me know or send a donation. At this point I may as well get all new drives for the system. I have no idea how used these drives have been used so this is kind of a gamble with mismatch drives to get something working. Again, anything at this point will help, but we need to get new drives otherwise our station will be down. The drives are all the same make, and model and I imagine same age, so its only a matter of time.
