    I lost the password to my blog on that site and can't get it mailed to me; there isn't even a help or contact link to handle situations like that. The FTP may still be worth using, even if it's slow (90 minutes to upload my full copy of Episode 1?); just don't expect any blog updates. *shrug*

    Thanks; I've got eleven of my full episodes uploaded now (nearly half), but I'll wait until all of them are up before I post the links. All twenty-six are "as is", the way I downloaded them off the Web--including a few skipped spots and picture problems that existed on the original poster's tapes. (I'll continue uploading "Best of..." archives for people who want specific clips; it's a lot easier to enhance the sound and picture for one segment than for a whole episode.)

    I've finished uploading all twenty-six of my complete Unpaved episodes to upfile.com, thanks to dude111. They're in .wmv format, so you'll need Windows Media Player or another compatible program to watch them. Here's what I've got available; I'd love more episodes in a PC-friendly format, if anybody wants to trade.

    Volume 1 (1969-74): #1, #8, #43, #54, #83, #131, #198, #276, #355, #406, #514, #536, #666.

    Volume 2 (1975-1985): #796, #871, #926, #1037, #1090, #1092, #1093, #1094, #1095, #1836, #1839, #1933, #2040.

    Linking to all of those files in one post might get me mislabeled a spammer, so if you'd like a specific episode please PM me and I'll give you the download links.

    Hey ISNorden, I just sent you a PM. :)

    I just answered your PM; only one of the episodes I uploaded (#1) is missing, so I've sent you the other twelve links while I straighten that problem out.

    On another note, I've updated the "Best of Episode 276" clip collection; all the clips should have sound now, and I've added a few more street scenes as well.

    I've re-submitted the two missing shows (#1 and #1092) that people have asked for; feel free to PM me with your link requests now.

    I've been having problems downloading the rest of the episodes, because, like I said to ISNorden in our private messages, they've been split up into 5 parts. Which requires WinRar to recombine/watch these episodes. But I tried downloading the software, and my computer won't accept it for some reason.

    Anyway, if anybody out there can find a program similar to WinRar that actually works (for me that is, and I should also add that my computer is a Mac OS X [10.4.4])---if you guys can find that, then it'd be great. Thanks

    StuffIt would be your best bet, then; it can open .rar files, it has always come in a Mac-friendly version, and there's a freeware release available if all you want to do is "unstuff" (open) files. Hope that helps!

    (Gasp!) How dare you---tee hee, just kidding (!) :p

    Okay, I will TRY this, and see how it goes.

    And...I installed StuffIt, tried downloading the first few parts of episode 131, but for some reason I only got part 1 to work (what I did was just mingle/play around with the program, and that's how it worked. Of course, I forgot how to do it, and I tried to with the other parts, but they just wouldn't work...so I uninstalled the program. And now, I don't know what to do.

    I've got software that would let me convert the files to lower-quality .mp4's (which I could store on GigaSize unbroken, since each episode would be about 100 megabytes). That would take a couple of days, though; and the program tends to "lose" the last few seconds of converted files. Would you be willing to have the episodes in that condition, Muppet Maniac?

    Could you put up the pitch for Sesame Street . I want to see that but dont want to get the Old School dvd.
  15. ISNorden

    ISNorden Active Member

    I don't have the pitch reel as an uploadable file; with no DVD drive on my PC, I have no way to rip it from there. Sorry to disappoint you, though I'm sure another user might help!

    I've just re-uploaded The Best of Episode 536; the new version includes some street scenes from the show, and all clips are higher-quality than before. (Unfortunately, one scene that I'd planned to include--Crystal playing "store" with Big Bird--was noticeably damaged in my copy of #536; that's a shame, considering that Sesame Workshop dropped it from the Old School DVD!)

    P.S. I still plan to add complete episodes to the archive; they should be up by this weekend (or early next week). However, I'm also overhauling some "best of" collections that I added long ago; if you see new links to a clip collection that I announced before, please use those and disregard the old links.

    I don tknow if its possible, but maybe those who have tapes of 158, 162, 179, 573, 1041 and 1056 (plus 1091) can upload them to the site. If they can, cool. If not, that's okay.

    Anyway, waiting for the rest of the episodes to be up (and I HOPE they work this time, and no funny stuff)

    ISNorden is the pitch reel online at all If so where.
  19. ISNorden

    ISNorden Active Member


    I don't know of any place online that has it; someone here ought to upload it if they can, though.

    I'd like to see computer-friendly copies of those episodes myself, especially 1091 (a gap in the trip story is a real bummer!). As for the .mp4 conversions I promised to put on GigaSize...three of my episodes are running through the converter as I type this, and I expect to have half a dozen uploaded this evening.
