Well is this The END? of E-TARD.TV
I told all you I would have my Live Streaming Webcam back up & running by August-2016.
Well things did not work out that way.
.1 The lawsuit ended & I got very little for almost dying. 😒
.2 I have been out of work for sometime now. (Work is hard to come by where I am in the Bay Area.)
So with all of that & the fact that ShitBook aka Facebook😒 now has Live Streaming for anyone. (Also lets not forget about Periscope & YouTube-Live etc…)
I now have come to a hard decision about E-TARD.TV & that is unless something changes.
Where I have the money I need to do this ($980 a year for everything) or unless you viewers start to give me donations.
I will be shutting down E-TARD.TV & E-TARD.NET on February 6th 2017 for good.
I’m doing this because I have been offline from mid 2012 & I feel now my Lifecast will be cheapen
by Facebook, Periscope & YouTube-Live in the coming year. Unless I can get my Live Stream back online & start rebuilding my audience, this may be the END.
If this is the end of E-TARD The LifeCaster then this really sucks. Because I started my LifeCast on September 5th, 2006 and had been streaming until mid 2012 when I no longer had the money to keep the live video stream online.
I know what some of you are thinking. “Why not use one of the Free third party streaming services?” They are fine if you are Streaming for the hell of it but if you are trying to make something out of your Stream then they will fuck you over in the end. Also they are full of ads, you are better off doing it on your own then using one of them.
What happens next?
After my website go’s offline I will no longer use the E-TARD name & all of my profiles will no longer be used.
I will go back to doing what I use to do before my lifecast.
Before my lifecast I never really took part in most of the net. I never left a comment on a blog post, I never took part on social networking websites, I never really left my own little part of the Net.
The feeling my lifecast gave me, changed in me in many ways.
I felt I finely found what I lost so long ago. I will miss having my LifeCast.
To all of my Fan’s
I want to say I will miss all of you & the times we had, I will never forget any of you.
I will do one more blog post (a goodbye post) after the new year. I’m thinking of making it a video post.
Do keep in mind that I’m still holding some hope that something will change for the better & I will be able to keep my lifecast
but time is running out & I just don’t know what to do.
So about donations
I leave you with this quote from one of my favorite books.
In the Kamigata area they have a sort of tiered lunch box they use for a single day when flower viewing.
Upon returning, they throw them away, trampling them underfoot.
The end is important in all things.
UPDATE!!: I got some dates wrong.
My server will go offline on January 30th 2017
(before my website go’s offline I will make a full backup of it on https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://e-tard.tv)
After that I will point my domains to my Twitter profile.
My domains http://e-tard.tv and http://e-tard.net will go offline some point in February.
I am thinking about keeping my twitter profile but I’m not sure.
I will have more info in my next & last post.
