If you want to go act like a moron, do it in Off-Topic.

This might be the funniest thing I've read here.

I think I ticked off Laserschwert.

Yeah,  but that already started in the other thread... you know, the "let other people do the work"-thread.

Well, I'm contributing to that, as I said before. It's sources are getting uploaded, and when it's done, you can PM me for a link if you wish. Also, 11th page starter!!!!! XD

I'll have some of these commercials stuck in my head for months to come. People will ask what I'm saying, I'll tell them, and then they'll be converted to the SWHS culture.

They'll try, and then they'll all get stuck in circle mode.

Yes, they would, and they would end up destroying things.

Thanks to all who worked on this project!  This steaming pile of bantha poodoo has never looked better.

Now, is there any chance one of you supremely talented individuals could whip up a DVD cover for this?  :)

I finally got to watch the WHIO DVD tonight - It's fantastic! 

Thank you, Tasjo, for making such a beautiful transfer available to all.

It really is a nice presentation...the best yet!

Great job on both discs.  It's nice to have both the Spanish and French versions with quality video available at your fingertips.

There is yet *another* different, shorter edit, and that is the Swedish version...but that's Swedish subtitled with English audio, so not as easily fixed.  The only copy I have of that has terrible video quality - though it came from a first-generation videotape, it was in bad shape and barely playable.

 I want to see that version as soon as possible.

Kudos on both a great find (a new first gen VHS) and a great transfer of it to DVD. I've got early DVDs that look worse than this bootleg -- namely the Blade Runner and Highlander director's cuts -- and my own VHS deck produces worse results from 10 year old commercial tapes than your process did from a 30+ year old OTA recording. Seriously, great job here.

At one point I would have said the same thing. Now, though, I think I can be content with what we've got.

My first digital copy was KCMO, purchased via eBay back when I didn't know of any other way to get it (an unremarkable transfer); then I bought KCCI from someone who I later found had been banned from these forums, (at the time the best there was); and was then led to WMAR with its commercials (slightly lesser quality but a valuable time capsule).

And now we have this incredible project. And I think I may be willing to say enough.

[That said, if such a transfer is released, or another of historical significance, then I expect that I will queue up to examine it. But I'm trying to relax my collector's instincts.]

I just made an account at the MySpleen forum. I made a post asking what to do to get the WHIO version of "The Star Wars Holiday Special." Has anyone else downloaded it? What do I need to do exactly in order to get that?

 Stop posting the same thing all over the place for starters.

Does it only work with utorrent? I already have Bitorrent and Frostwire installed on my computer?

Utorrent is by far the best.  Just go with it.

I can't find the torrent file, could you private message me a link?

 You've been on this site less than two days. Rudeness is not going to make people want to help you. You already got off on the wrong foot posting that piratebay link in the other thread.
