Where the hell is Red?

Okay, okay, sorry I've gone dark for so long. Please remember that I do have a day job.

Second, I last week suffered the mother of all data losses... seriously. I won't bore you with the details (other than to say that the LostBets data is okay), but that's yet another reason I haven't been as active as usual.

Third, there is a long-awaited update! Something a little different this time, something not like I've posted before. And for all you cheap bastards out there, it's only $3.99, which also happens to be Clips4Sale's minimum price.

Now, speaking of Clips4Sale.

I want to make this clear: without Clips4Sale, there is no way in hell that LostBets.com would ever have gotten off the ground. Zero chance. All the hassles that are involved in hosting, billing, fulfillment, and (most of all) customer service would definitely have deterred me from even getting started. But that being said, I've outgrown them. I just can't afford to keep paying their vig. I get an email notification every time one of my clips is sold. I used to get an excited thrill when I saw that notification pop up. Now, I cringe. All I can think is, "well, there goes another 40%."

So that's why it's been a long time between updates... and why the flow of new videos will continue to be a trickle for a little while yet. I have arrangements to make. Those include not only finding alternate sources for hosting, billing, and fulfillment, but also a stable, cross-platform solution for my videos and interactive games.

Patience, grasshopper. It will be rewarded.

By the way, I'm doing my first new shoots since I started selling clips in late October. Still working on recruiting girls, but with the ideas I've had (and the ideas you've given me, plenty of which will get used) and also with the new video equipment I just bought, I don't think you'll be disappointed in the results. And you can expect promos from those shoots as soon as I can make 'em. Stay tuned, strip game fans.

By the way, here's a little something-something for reading this far. The thumbnail clip for the new video has a censor bar. This version isn't... please click only if you are over 18 and want to see nudity.

All right, all right, already.

H.264 is a really good codec. It's also convenient for me to use, in a way that WMV no longer is since I made the Mac switch. But lots of people have had problems playing it on their Windows machines (and the codec isn't native to Vista, either), so... bleah. Here's the promo from the previous post in WMV.

The video itself is just about done, but before I can publish it I'll need to do something about the 2257 problem. Haven't got that one figured out yet.

Does this work, or does it suck?

First things first: if you're not in the habit of checking the clip store regularly, there was a new video posted this weekend. Tristen and Stephanie, everybody's favorite sorority pledges, return for Day 5 of Pledge Week. Enjoy.

I have a new free promo for you... well, almost free. We'll get to that.

All of my games have been done with video. Other sites do their games with captioned photos. Personally, I think both styles have advantages and disadvantages. So what we have here is an experiment, a hybrid: a mixture of full-motion video and captioned still images.

I don't know whether this is a good idea or not. So I'm asking for your feedback. What works, what doesn't? Should I keep on editing this particular game together, or write it off as a loss and move on? Please leave your comments here, or email them to me. Thanks.

Almost free. The only price is: please give me your feedback.

Yes, I know the audio quality sucks. Sorry. Keep buying my clips, so I can afford a new camera with a better microphone.

Some regrettable news

Don't worry, I'm not closing down, at least not yet. But I'm going to have to do something that might seem like a dick thing to do, so I want to explain myself and my reasons why.

Folks, I'm really sorry about this, but I have to decline all technical support requests from now on, especially requests to redownload a lost clip. Such requests require a lot of not-very-fun work on my part, and believe you me, I certainly ain't doing this for the money. If running LostBets.com becomes un-fun, I'll stop doing it.

So, if you accidentally deleted a clip, I'm really sorry, but there's nothing I can do. You made a mistake and lost some property you bought, and now you have to replace it or do without. If you bought a DVD and then lost it, you wouldn't expect the movie studio to replace it for free, would you?

This was a painful decision, because some of those who've lost clips have been among my most faithful customers, including some who have lost hundreds of dollars of material, but I figure that such fans will understand and would rather be out the money than see the updates come to an end. (If, on the other hand, a problem occurs during the download process itself, contact Clips4Sale's support and they should be able to help you.)

Sorry again, folks, and I hope this doesn't scare too many of you away.

Another new clip, plus some news

Just one clip posted this week. I've liked being able to present two new clips each week, but that won't be sustainable, and I figure it's better to slow the pace a little bit than to run out of material. Tristen and Stephanie are back for their fourth game. The forfeit is something people have been asking for... the loser has to "open wide" and let us all get a really good look. Enjoy.

I mentioned in an earlier comment that when I opened the Clips4Sale store, I made up my mind that I'd continue if sales reached a certain level, which they did in a matter of days. There was a second level I had in mind that, if I reached it, I'd schedule another shoot and create some new material. That level's been reached as well, so expect to see some new videos (featuring some new girls) in the near future. I'm grateful for all the suggestions I've received and will try to incorporate many of them into the new games. Last chance to make suggestions, if you've got any...

Also, I've reopened the poll at the right. If you haven't voted for your favorite girl yet, please do.
