2:00 AM (PST) UPDATE: Video’s done! I’m encoding it now. Now I just need to upload the build and the video, which takes about 1 hour.
I’m sorry, I don’t think that the next update will be ready in less than 3 hours! I’ll try to calculate how long it might take:
I’ve recorded 10 minutes of narration for the next video. Creating a video usually takes me about 1 hour for every minute of audio. I predicted that it would only take me 10 hours to prepare this next video, but the first half of the video involved a lot of motion graphics, so it took me a lot longer than usual. It took about 8 hours for the first 4 minutes of the video. That’s 2 hours per minute, is twice as long as it usually takes.
I currently have 5 minutes of the video completed. In a best-case scenario, the video will be ready within 5 hours, but I’d also have to create and upload a new build, which takes about 1 hour. In a worst-case scenario, it’ll take me 10 hours to complete the video. 10 more hours would be too long to stay awake, so I’d have to finish the video after getting some sleep. In summary…
Best-case scenario: 6 more hours
Worst-case scenario: Sometime tomorrow
Sorry again for the delay! …it seems a bit strange to call it a “delay”, though. My completely arbitrary, self-imposed “1st and 15th of every month” deadlines are really stupid, since it is almost never possible to accomplish something meaningful within only 2 weeks. Those deadlines really only exist because of tradition, not because they are a reasonable/realistic timeframe to create a good update, so it’s honestly a stupid schedule that shouldn’t exist in the first place. Maybe I’ll be able to come up with a better schedule in 2017…
Once again: Thanks for your patience!
