The BitStorm developer is out of business. I downloaded BitTornado, however the window tells me I get "HTTP error 404; Not Found"

Did I miss the boat?? I'd love to see the clip. Is it still up?

As of July 6th using Bitlord I get "TRACKER RETURN CODE 404 STOP" Is the server still down or is there an alternate site to download this torrent?

Am I the only one who noticed that all the damage you recieved....ALL OF IT....would have been much less severe had you CLOSED YOUR STORM SHUTTERS at the beginning of the storm as opposed to during the EYE???
I mean, not to insult you.....but wasn't there an editing process?? Maybe something I might have left out, lest an insurance adjuster notice such a....I was going to say gross neglect(just did!)....Come on, we all want to see what is happening but that was an action that LED to more damage, and possible injury.....Maybe as Dennis approaches......we will ALL learn something and CLOSE our storm shutters....in case there is a STORM!!!!

Oh don't worry... we showed the insurance guy a different version. We didnít really prepare as we should have and we knew it (my dad is an old hurricane vet), and leaving the shutters open was a major boo boo. Actually, we opened them up a little so we could see well. Despite what could have happened, no damage occurred due to the shutters being open. They were not facing the wind (notice how we could stand on the front porch) during the first half of the storm, and the house was actually penetrated through the boarded-up side. Debris broke through the wood holding the door in, the door flew open, and wind came through the house and knocked the sliding glass door down on the porch where the shutters were open. Notice during the 2nd half we closed them, as the winds shifted. I put a disclaimer before the film, and I will reiterate again, ďif a hurricane threatens your area, properly and completely board up, and better yet, leave. As far as it being insulting to meÖ donít worry about it. It was awesome footage, was it not?

And, Markieb,
if you have any problems downloading, please talk to MikeC, as he is in charge of the server. If Dennis just so happens to affect Punta Gorda or the surrounding area, I guarantee you, we will do things differently. Thank you for your concern. : ) Enjoy.

HEY!!!
I AM that insurance guy........
jsut kidding...i just found that to be an oddly disturbing observation....GREAT footage.....My family orgainized a truck full of supplies and delivered it to Port Charlotte 4-5 days after.....just a lil help from Palm Bay......of course we had no idea we would need the help a short time later.......unfortunately I believe Frances and Jeane brought another false sense of security to us on the East coast.......it was nowhere near as bad here as it was after Charley......and though there was damage here.....it was mostly cosmetic, unless you were beachside......I know I know...people lost a lot of shingles.....but their houses were still standing!!
I also grew up in your neighborhood and went to that gas station that was leveled, by the causeway, about 100 times.....remember times at the Punta Gorda auditorium too!!! We probably stayed at the Holiday Inn there too, or whatever it WAS!!!

In fact i thought you may have been living in my grandparents old house for awhile, same model type tho I believe.......I know you like to think you went thru the worst of it......I was on Easy St. in PT Charlotte, homes were structurally damaged, walls and roofs, not just a doorway......not trying to minimize your experience....just offering my obs.....Funny how the only buildings that sustained NO DAMAGE were the Walgreens and Eckerds......the company that built those, are building my next home!! Is it ok to post a few pics of my experience here??

Sure... I wouldn't mind. You could make your own thread if you want as well. You may be right about a small section of Port Charlotte just across the bridge... also, I don't think the houses were built as well over there, so that probably has alot to do with it. Thanks to people like you (and I thank you dearly) we were up and running in about three weeks. Some people a few weeks more. That is awesome as compared to an unrenting three months with Andrew. Again, thankyou for your contribution.

The Torrent was only up when the video was initially released

The videos are down during Dennis, the Link flhurricane on is already saturated bandwidth wise (still at old T-1 link) and I haven't moved to a new colocation facility yet with better bandwidth. All the images are already offloaded to other networks, so it's pure text saturating the link.

Therefore, videos down until Dennis has passed.

Hey MikeC, I noticed the forum crash and loss of a few posts. Just checking to see if and when the torrents for the Hurricane Charlie Video will be reposted. Last time there was a post stating the video was back but BitLord would show TRACKER RETURN CODE 404,STOPPED!! But then again this was just befor the forums crashed! Just wondering!

The videos are back up now, the Torrent link is gone, it was up for the initial release of the video for a while.

The videos will get pulled again if any of the waves threaten land.

When you say they are back up, where would I find them? I have been trying to watch them for weeks, but keep getting error messages from windows media player.

See the first post in the thread -- http://v.flhurricane.com/mcelroy/

It's the big one you want for the full thing, or alternatively download it piecemeal.

Are you trying the .TORRENT link, or are you trying the large .wmv file? I'm having no problem trying to get the wmv file...the torrent, however, as Mike said will not work.
