I'm shocked that the SloMoHolic.com domain wasn't already taken, lol.

Really looking forward to this with all the improvements you have made.

I hope all streamers take note.
If all the above features work smoothly, this would be a huge breakthrough in streaming!!!
Can't wait.

I apologize for the mixup, but the Texas Tornado stream will be offline until the Calcutta is finished.

Thanks for your understanding, we'll be back soon!

I can't wait to see the final 16 (plus the Women's division).

Internet issues have been solved, thanks to a different provider. Actually, we now have three separate internet providers so we're not beholden by one company's bad day.

Although it wasn't perfect, today's stream was very ambitious and despite the early internet issues, I am proud of the results. Can we do better? YES!!!

I have to admit, I was overconfident about the Internet, because I had done so much testing beforehand. Internet for live streaming is like gasoline for race car drivers, and my fancy tank sprung a leak, right after the starting line. Big fail. I admit that.

Bah. We all know how it goes sometimes, but that is no excuse. My apologies to those of you that tried to watch while the internet connection "disappeared" for us. I spent most of the day working on a solution, and I eventually found one that makes sense.

With all the new features I had planned to showcase, I didn't expect any problems from basic stuff like decent internet. Unfortunately, many of the new (awesome) features had to be neglected while I restored basic network service.

Well... No more. I now have local internet, AT&T, Sprint, AND Verizon, all available for our live streaming, just in case one of them has a poor service area or a bad day.

Thanks to the viewers that stuck with it and weathered the storm. I really appreciate that.

The immediate test of this new plan will be the remainder of this tournament. I hope you give us a shot.

We will be LIVE at or before noon CST, in 720 HD. Be there. Love it or hate it. Let me know. But please check it out.

Despite yesterday's setbacks, I am still committed to raising the bar and setting a higher standard for live streaming in the pool world.

We ALL want better pool live streaming. And we can have it.

Please join us.

I enjoyed the stream, thank you for all the hard work you put in. There were some pretty awesome shots ( Vivians kick and Franklins table length draw from the rail come to mind)
Looking forward to more good stuff today!
