I just kicked off another round of DeOldify. Thought I had done it before I went to bed lest night, but I didn't.

ETA: 10 hours.


And it's still running. 8:15 in, 4:20 to go, according to latest estimates.

All I can say is Bogie better be worth it.

This finished late last night, but I didn't get a chance to look at it until about half an hour ago.

Today was a Busy Day.

I'll talk about that later.

For now, let's talk about Beat The Devil: archive.org/details/beat-the-d

I have not watched it all the way through yet, but the bits that I have watched look the best out of any film I've 'd so far, and frankly I'm pleased as punch.

BoingBoing featured my Teenagers from Outer Space attempt: boingboing.net/2020/11/19/watc

That's neat.

It's one of the better looking ones I've done so far.

I currently have A Message From Mars in the oven. We'll see how that goes.

Here we have A Message From Mars (1913) colorized with DeOldify: archive.org/details/a-message-

The results on this one are Weird! It's significantly less colorful than other videos that I've posted, and the colors are all kind of earthy and muddy in a way I wasn't expecting, but they're also pretty stable and not entirely unnatural.

All in all, a solid result.

[If you're reading this before noon eastern, it's likely that Archive.org is still deriving files, and it might not work right.]

I also stuck A Message From Mars on Peertube, because I want to start doing that again, but I need to figure out what the storage situation on this instance looks like, and if it's worth doing.
