Lots of rain last winter and early rain this fall helped my orange tree recover from the drought. Here is my first fresh squeeze of 2017.

Hey, +MLB, Gameday is seriously BROKEN! Audio is atrocious! Worse than AM radio. Web site lags behind game by minutes, even with forced manual page refresh.

You need more server bandwidth and less audio compression. Because as it stands you won't attract many "cord cutters" like me to your internet offerings.

YouTube is cutting off advertising revenue to creators who dare to post controversial content? Really, YouTube? Really, Google? Really Alphabet? Are you really censoring YouTube to get into China?

What happened to "Don't be evil"?

Google's Chrome browser on Windows 10 is hosed. Latest update seems to have made it worse.

YouTube 60fps video playback is jerky and audio gets out of synchronization after a few seconds. I guess the Google guys that work on Chrome don't talk to the Google guys that work on YouTube. Sad.

MLB.com on Chrome also has issues with Gameday audio playback. It either won't start (Media Error) or it won't let me select anything but the default home team's audio. Also, Gameday animation slows to a crawl and the page responds very slowly to scrolling.

Switching over to Microsoft's Edge browser solves all the problems above, but the MLB Gameday audio pauses whenever the browser is minimized or the screen saver activates. And by pause, I don't mean mute. It buffers the audio stream not yet played, picks up where it left off, way out of synchronization with the game. So, close the audio stream and reopen any time that happens. Not too bad. Probably handy for any other audio application.

Launching a New Series of Fully Charged
So far, it's been fairly breathtaking.
This morning I launched a Patreon campaign to attempt to raise enough money to continue making the Fully Charged series.
At time of writing there are 199 supporters on the Patreon page, it only went live about 3 hours ago, on a Sunday morning. 
We have already shot 4 episodes just so we have something to keep the series going, but if you are of a mind to, check out the Patreon page.
