So as much as I hoped to get that holiday video rolling, then released on Christmas it seems about half way into Update Day: A TF2 Story, the external hard drive I've been using to store all my Fraps captures on has begun acting up and is probably on death's door. See, for a good long while, I haven't been recording my Fraps captures on my main drive because recording Fraps to the same drive that GMod is running in makes Fraps mighty angry with you. So I instead have been recording all the captures on this external drive up until the TF2 story when it started chugging pretty badly. Long story short, I needed a new HDD specifically for the use of Fraps and thankfully, I have one now, it's just a matter of mounting it into my case and getting started again.
Now comes a dilemma. I notice that we're up to about 186,400 subscribers at the moment and will be hitting the 200,000 milestone video time as I have mentioned before. The last one I was late on and I'd like to be on time with this one, however I'm planning on going pretty balls to the wall on effort with the 10th idiot box episode. I get the feeling that in between that production, I'm going to be halting progress entirely on it so I can start the milestone video. That didn't used to be a problem back then, but this time, I'm going to be presenting a little surprise people have often gotten on my ass about. I wanted to present this on the very next video I did and making GIB 10 before the next milestone wouldn't make sense for ... reasons I cannot disclose yet! That in mind, I've decided to start production on the milestone video now and release it when it's done. Yeah, sure, it'll probably be released early and I know that seems arrogant to do, but ... TOUGH, I SAY!
Anyway, as soon as I can get this HDD mounted into my case, I'll get started on the milestone as soon as I get the time. It will reveal the surprise that hopefully will make GIB 10 all the more "special" when it comes out, among other things. Peace out!
