Hello, does anyone still have bh013: AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute To George Lucas and able to re-upload please?

Does anyone know what happened to babyhum? I've tried messaging and emailing. No response.

Hey all-

I found a line on what appears to be a COMPLETE set of babyhum's bh001 thru bh018, and have plans to either RE-up or like RE-prime (using existing torrents, IF trying to do so turns out well) at least a few of the holes presently in The babyhum Collection currently available on MySpleen.

My present thoughts are at least to do bh003, bh009, bh013 and possibly bh017 (I have DLed it already, the reason I am saying possibly for bh017 is that there is existing Ocpmovie's Star Wars Special Edition which may or may not be superior to the babyhum version).

In any event I will gladly provide similar treatment to any of the other 1/2, or so, of The babyhum Collection that are presently unseeded on MySpleen IF the requestor(s) are:

1) well established members here with a few months (at least) of regular participation

2) they're willing to continue regular seeding any requested title for at least 1 month

Kind regards, ;)

-A.S.

p.s.  Hope I'm not violating any forum rules by the language of this post, if so that was not my intention.  (Moth3r please advise if I need to make an edit.)

bh003, bh009, and bh013 have all three been RE-posted to MySpleen and are available for immediate DL.  I expect that I will only be able to seed for a couple weeks, or so, as my wife and I are looking at moving by the end of the month.

SO…please grab it while it's hot, AND please do keep these babyhum releases going as long as possible!

Enjoy,

-A.S.

I would really appreciate a re-up of this:

bh006: When Star Wars Ruled The World

If you had issues reseeding the original torrent you should mention it either in the myspleen forums or in the OT.com myspleen thread.  Having the same files in different torrents can cause confusion.  To promote reseeding of older torrents the tracker has implemented:

What does "Upload Multiplier" mean?

The upload multiplier is a feature where every amount of data you upload is multilied by the amount listed. For example, if you upload 5 gigabytes on a torrent with an 8.0 multiplier, the amount that will be added to your ratio would be 40gb. The point of this is to give someone incentive to seed older torrents. Every month the torrent is on the tracker, .1 is added to the multiplier. As of Feb 2011, the oldest torrent on the tracker has a multiplier of 9.2.

Before my RE-ups, 9 of the 18 BabyHum torrents on MySpleen were actively being seeded, and now we're up to 12.  Additionally, 2 of the remaining 6 torrents "NON-actively" seeded actually have "seeders" at 99.9% (just missing a completely non-essential NFO file).

bh006: When Star Wars Ruled The World is one of these 99.9% completely working but not showing up as being 100% seeded (the other is bh008:  Star Wars: Feel The Force).  As the remaining 4 BabyHum titles either pertain the prequels (bh005, bh010, bh016) and are therefore not to my own personal interests, or (in the case of bh017) are available in an alternative release.

So, I totally would RE-up bh006 for you...but there is a perfectly good copy up there already (it's just missing the original NFO file).

@none

While I have had extensive experience with several other on-line sharing communities over the years, I still count myself as having relatively limited experience both here and on MySpleen (and there are some decidedly unique and idiocentric qualities to both the OT.com and MySpleen communities).

That being said, before reading your post I wasn't aware that the MySpleen forum even existed...but I can now see where to get signed-up for it and I will (I did at least do a "Reseed request" on MySpleen for EACH the torrents in question a couple months back, and after finding my alternate source for The BabyHum Collection I did first tried seeding the existing torrents:  the existing bh003 torrent was in the form of an ISO image (and in my version are only DVD_ROM and VIDEO_TS folders) so that was a complete no go, my copies of both bh009 and bh013 validated up to around 99%, but some structurally critical files weren't verifying at 100%, so I decided to go with a complete RE-seed from scratch for all 3 torrents.

I am not sure where to find the OT.com myspleen thread offhand (and, again, I was unclear about the established preferred process).

THANK YOU none for taking a moment to try and get me in the right direction, you're pretty legend in my book...so any tips you've got for me are ALWAYS to be appreciated! ;)

All the best!

But torrent 'pieces' aren't cut along file boundaries, typically,
so besides the missing NFO file
also the last piece of VTS_04_1.VOB is unavailable to those leechers.
Just sayin'

However, in practice you must take into account the “fuckwit factor”. Just talk to Darth Mallwalker…

It's too bad Babyhum has completely disappeared. I was going to be making a Blu-ray of everything using his original sources.

@stretch009 and Darth Mallwalker:

My apologies to you both!  I revisited my previous assessment of bh006 and bh008 by copying over my 99.99% completed MySpeen DLs and found that while my recollection of bh008:  Star Wars: Feel The Force was accurate (the VIDEO_TS folder is 100% complete leaving the 0.001% not complete portion coming from NON-essential components), the same is NOT true of bh006 (which is missing a small part of VTS_04_1.VOB as indicated by Darth Mallwalker).

That being the case, I will go to my alternate source, DL bh006 and then try to complete the missing VTS_04_1.VOB or RE-up all of bh006 if needs be.

All the best! ;)

 Got ya!  Like I said, good stuff! ;)

I'll wait to hear back regarding seeding of the original BH shares on MySpleen and will RE-post a couple more missing releases up there if there are no takers...

Some kind soul re-seeded the ORIGINAL bh017 MySpleen torrent.

While I did hear from a dude? (supposedly with a MySpleen compatible copy of bh006) a couple/few weeks ago...I have not yet heard back so, I re-posted bh006.

Hope that helps! ;)

-A.S.

p.s.  I will gladly delete ANY of my babyhum re-posts IF we can get their original MySpleen counterpart back to 100% SEED (preferably by two or more dedicated SEEDERS)...just let please try to PM me here and/or on MySpleen to bring it to my attention (or let a MySpleen admin know)!

Here's another quick update...

Since my last post, I actually invested a few bucks into getting myself a premium USENET account and (among other things) I found and DLed pertinent "missing" MySpleen BH releases from what I believe to be AvP's series of BH posts.  I then tried RE-seeding...and while I had very limited success, I did quietly manage to get bh009 fully up to 100% on MySpleen (and, unfortunately, that was my only successful effort).

So, as it stands.  The original bh003, bh006, and bh013 MySpleen posts REMAIN dead at this time (and I have not heard back from the dude who PMed me on MySpleen)...and my three RE-upped copies bh003 and bh006 are both going quite strong while I have twice had to copy bh013 back onto my computer to reseed after the seed count dropped to zero (and we're presently at only 1 seeder for bh013).

True to my word, I will gladly delete my RE-upped version of bh009, but I would like to get at least one or two more seeders over to the ORIGINAL bh009 before doing so (as I will need to drop out relatively soon, myself).

As I reported earlier, the original bh017 was re-primed before I got to re-posting  and is still going relatively strong.

Below is a quick peek at the current state of the relevant BH releases on MySpleen:

 

bh003 - The Mythology Of Star Wars

ORIG MySpleen torrent -> [Peers: 0 seeders, 0 leechers = 0 peers total]

My RE-upped torrent -> [Peers: 9 seeders, 0 leechers = 9 peers total]

 

bh006 - When Star Wars Ruled The World

ORIG MySpleen torrent -> [Peers: 0 seeders, 1 leecher = 1 peer total]

My RE-upped torrent -> [Peers: 14 seeders, 0 leechers = 14 peers total]

 

bh009 - Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition AudioVisual Press Kit

ORIG MySpleen torrent -> [Peers: 3 seeders, 0 leechers = 3 peers total]

My RE-upped torrent -> [Peers: 4 seeders, 0 leechers = 4 peers total]

 

bh013: AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute To George Lucas

ORIG MySpleen torrent -> [Peers: 0 seeders, 0 leechers = 0 peers total]

My RE-upped torrent -> [Peers: 1 seeder, 1 leecher = 2 peers total]

 

bh017: Star Wars: The Magic and The Mystery

ORIG MySpleen torrent -> [Peers: 3 seeders, 1 leecher = 4 peers total]

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the seeders on MySpleen who continue to keep these "classics" alive and (once again) THANK YOU to AvP for reposting the whole BH release series to USENET!

All the best! ;)

Here's a QUICK update:

I sent a PM to ALL seeders of my bh009 (RE-up) to let them know that I would be DELETING that torrent (in favor of the recently reincarnated ORIG bh009 MySpleen share), and I provided them with some specific migration instructions.  Hopefully some or all of these seeders will make the move over to the ORIG bh009, in any event I plan to help seed the ORIG bh009, myself, for one more week (in the hopes of picking up some MORE SEEDERS).

I took a quick look at my other recent bh collection (RE-up)'s and saw that bh013 is AGAIN without seeders.  So, again, I have transferred bh013 back onto my HD and will AGAIN seed myself for one more week!  This will very likely be my LAST time seeding bh013...if it's going to survive on MySpleen then we're going to need to find some dedicated individuals willing to seed for the weeks and months necessary to keep it alive.

So, look for the ORIG bh009 and bh013 (RE-up) up on MySpleen...and, IF you wish to continue to see them there beyond that, then PLEASE SEED!!!

All the best,

 

-A.S.

p.s.  HUGE THANKS go to all the GREAT folks on MySpleen who DO so much to help keep this and other great fan efforts alive by SEEDING them!

I fluffed off just a little for a day or two on seeding the ORIG bh009 and bh013 "(RE-up)"...so, I gave it an extra couple days on the back end.

There are still ONLY 2 seeders for the ORIG bh009 and ONLY 1 seeder for bh013 "(RE-up)" at present (without me).  This is just going to have to do for now...and, hopefully, some more kind hearted souls will step-up and seed for a while!  If either of these two wells run dry on MySpleen, there's always the recent RE-posts on USENET...and, IF you have a positive share ratio of like 5 or 6 (or higher) AND are willing to put in at least a few weeks of seed time, then feel free to contact me via PM up here!

Well, that's all for now! ;)

I miss Babyhum 😦

If anyone wants the discs of the original releases, I’ve now ripped them all to Blu-ray. Please let me know and I’ll be happy to mail them…
