Yay ASF is back! Thanks Zogg! Posted Friday, December 31, 2004, 12:24AM by TylerL
"All 17 Superman episodes are now online.
If you haven't watched them all yet (like me), do it.
Do it now.
Big thanks to Infolink's new newsmonkey Nobuyuki for providing Electric Earthquake (episode 7).

Yeah, ASF is down too. Oh well." Posted Tuesday, December 28, 2004, 11:10PM by TylerL
I fell behind on Superman episodes.
4 episodes were just posted - including Wednesday's.
Two more to go...
Update from Zogg: An upgrade to one of the server daemons caused it to choke on some old config files. (Basically, named didn't like my malformed zone files. Whoops.) Everything should be back up now.

Take heed. [klunk] Posted Sunday, December 19, 2004, 11:14PM by TylerL
"Katamari Damacy review online.
Those crazy Japanese, what with their cartoons and video games and underwear vending machines...
Also, remember that we're posting a new Fleischer Superman episode every day until 2005.
6 online so far, with the 7th coming Tuesday morning at 12:05am (barring experimental timed-updater failure).

TDA will be posting one Fleischer/Famous Studios Superman short every day until 2005!
Enjoy the old.

Media Factory Inc. goes after fansubs Posted Monday, December 13, 2004, 1:53PM by TylerL
"Up until now, fansub groups and anyone involved in the publication of fansubs had little to worry from legal pressure from Japan. It has long been the assumed belief that, at the most, Japanese anime studios silently condoned the actions or at least ignored the fansub community as being not much of a threat to them.

""On December 7, 2004 AnimeSuki received an email from a Tokyo law firm who represents the interests of Media Factory Inc. (a Japanese anime studio) requesting us to stop uploading ""works"" (anime series) of MFI to our website and/or stop ""inducing"" our visitors to websites where their ""works"" can be downloaded.""

For now, whether this is just a fluke or a sign of things to come, the future of fansubs may now be in question.

It's actually November 22nd. Posted Sunday, December 12, 2004, 9:50PM by TylerL

Would you like some files?
