    Another update. The thing that came up that delayed the episode was pitches for a couple of decent contracts. With a lot of my booked in contracts having been postponed due to Covid I'm been relying on getting smaller contracts but the time to win these coupled with looking after client sites like this one and my own sites PLUS doing this virtual prediction league its meant I've been doing 9am to 5am days for over a month now which has been draining

    Now I've won these 2 contracts which coupled with a few other things means I can scale back and try and get a bit more of a normal length day BUT I need to take some R&R days before these contracts start. Which means for about the next week I'm only going to touch my computer to do check in on sites I look after twice a day and then any emergency work.

    As such the next episode will be delayed a little longer, probably either the 21st or 22nd May but I'll give another update closer to the time during one of my check ins

    I got to 'pitches' and stopped reading.

    You really need to sort the drainage out, or you'll be postponing games every other day.

    SORT IT OUT! ;)

    OK been gone a little longer than I intended. I had that typical situation where you spend time working hard and you don't get ill despite being run down BUT the second you take time off suddenly you are hit for 6 for a few days. And then just as I was feeling better a client had some emergency work that needed done.

    Anyway I have the episode for this round ready to go and that will go up on Saturday 6th June. I could have pushed it sooner but I wanted to get a few in the bag.

    I have this one done, I have the next game against Morecambe basically done (just needs the leaderboard for after the Mansfield game added and then the video rendered out) and I'm half way through the match after that. I should hopefully be uptown game 29 or 30 by the time my big contract starts on the 10th which will will give me enough episodes to see me through that and I should be able to find the time to atleast 3 done if not more by the time all those episodes are up

    Np. I'm enjoying making the videos as I try and teach myself something new in each one (some noticeable to the viewer, some behind the scenes stuff), just a shame I'm not a millionaire so that pesky thing call paid work has to get in the way.

    Also enjoying the save as well. So much so that I may continue playing it when the the seasons finished (and maybe keep making videos, just not one every match so I can get though seasons a bit quicker). Mind you as you will see in a couple of matches time there are about a dozen issues with carrying it on caused by me playing it as as a 1 season save.

    Well done Simon - with Lord Bobby with this - make a nice distraction from the real world and one day you never know we may well be top and winning real games by 3/4 goals - we can alway dream.

    FFS something really doesn't want me to get these episodes out. A Drive in my NAS crashed where all the output files are on. And the bloody replacement drive I need is either on backorder or is being price gauged by people trying to cash in on low stock (Cheapest I can find in stock is £80 more than it should be). I really hate this stupid pandemic.

    Anyway I can't risk having my NAS on while its down a disk as I risk losing everything. (For those who might wonder, you runs NAS in RAID which means data is spread across all the disks in the NAS and each of these disks also has recovery data, you can lose a disk and not lose the data as when you replace the disk it uses this recovery data to rebuild the data on it. Lose 2 and you lose everything though). I have backups both on an external disk and on online storage. But I need the software on the NAS to recover the external disk backup and the online backup only lets me grab 250mb of data time via the browser so I need the app on the NAS to get that as well

    So that's another delay. And just when I was getting a decent amount ahead :(

    Will be back within in next week. The hard drives have arrived and im just having to rebuild the raid array which in total will take 2-3 days.

    I have continued to play through so I have the one for this match that was nearly ready and then the next 8 after that which just need edited and the images and animations added so there shouldn't be any more delays until at least game 35 (and I may have the season finished by the time game 35 is released)

    Simon thank you for this, i am sure it is very frustrating however it is a great distraction from the real world issues and really appreciate all your efforts with this.

    NB please could you make sure we win all these games next season.

    Ok everyone just a quick update.

    The next episode is uploaded and will go live on Monday 13th July at 8PM

    I was going to release it tomorrow or Saturday but Monday just fits in better as I know I will be around in the event of any issues

    Also with PL football being back and often playing at 8:15PM I may move future releases to earlier in the day but will see how this one performs. This one and the next are locked in at 8PM though and if I do change I will let you all know
