Sadly, technical problems will soon prevent Nohbody.com from hosting Wing Commander Academy. Death's service to the CIC has been above and beyond the call of duty, and we owe him a big thanks. Academy episodes will continue to be rotated on BlackLance.org.
To all who have been trying to access the WCA episode files:
This, unfortunately, has affected my ability to serve the Wing Commander Academy episodes. Repeated attempts to get Telocity to fix the problem have resulted in the net result of precisely zip being done.
As of 12:00am EST on January 1st, 2001, I will be no longer able to serve the WCA files. Nohbody.com will be moving to a third-party web host (none of those I have looked at have the bandwidth options to support the traffic that the episode files have generated), and I will be discontinuing my Telocity access shortly thereafter, switching to BellSouth's FastAccess ADSL service, which doesn't allow users to run servers on their dynamically assigned connections.
I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but I cannot in good faith continue to offer a service (the episode files) that circumstances beyond my control have made impossible to provide.
Unfortunately ScriptShop.com will be shutting down on Friday, December 22nd. They are still taking orders, so if you have not yet bought a copy of the Wing Commander script, this might be a good time to do so. They do make great Christmas presents...
Hey guys! Okay, this isn't really directly WC, but it might interest some folks who were children of the late 70's and into the 80's space shows, or have a particular interest in early Japanimation that had an influence on Wing Commander.
I found quite by accident that the old STAR BLAZERS series is available on DVD! Well, partially, anyway. The initial series -- The Quest for Iscandar -- is being released 5 episodes at a time. It appears that the first set (ep. 1-5) was released back in September. How I missed it I have no idea. The second set (ep. 6-10) is scheduled for release today, 12/19.
That is all!
I'm headed back to the Lesnick System for some much needed rest and relaxation... expect fewer updates each day while I'm away from my computer. It'll be great to get home and visit my family... and one particular person, whom I miss even more than I miss ExoSquad.
