So you might be wondering, “Hey, what took so long?” or “Why is the episode going up in the evening?” or “Why are you so lazy Josh, give me my free entertainment!”
All of which are good questions. I’d like to know the answers too.
But this is what the upload page looks like right now:
Gee, thanks Youtube. Unknown errors. Those are the best kind.
Now I’ve had single upload fails before, but this is the first time it’s happened four three times in a row. Additionally, these failures happened near the end of the upload process, it wasn’t just something that happened right as I hit upload. And when you’re uploading a file that’s just short of 1 GB in size, even a single upload failure can eat hours. Hopefully this won’t become a habit.
So that’s been my day so far. How about yours?
