Development Update

Yesterday we cancelled the live stream and commentary of the Nova Scotia COVID19 update by TLDR Press. When we were preparing for the launch of FrostTek Productions, we were looking at all of the old projects from the Eaton Media Group. We decided that now that everybody’s health and wellness had finally stabilized, which projects were going to stay in which projects were indeed going to be cancelled permanently. We looked at what we wanted to accomplish, and because we finally have access to truly high-speed Internet, we realized that there are so many more things we can do.

When we started looking at what we could do, we realized that although our previously existing infrastructure was reasonably proficient, it could not deal with the production schedule that we were looking at putting together. Fortunately, we were able to pick up a number of things in store and other things were in stock but available for online order only. Several orders were placed from many different vendors for a lot of electronic equipment. Other items were ordered in early December, and as of yesterday, we received an influx of emails telling us that those key components that we need to function have finally shipped out. They were initially supposed to be here before Christmas, but that didn’t happen.

Another thing that was stopping official production from starting was licensing. To do something and be above board, we have to ensure that the proper licensing is in place. We were finally granted our primary license shortly before Christmas and decided that we couldn’t launch things until after the Christmas holiday with everything that was going on. We have been testing multiple different types of recording and streaming software. We are pleased to announce that we have finally chosen a software streaming package and purchased the appropriate licensing to move forward with regular live broadcasts.

We had initially tested the software and several other software suites to give us more capabilities, but we finally narrowed it down. Hopefully, within the next two weeks, all of our remaining hardware should finally arrive, and we will be able to get into total production.

Also, we have been busy consulting our legal team on the different policies for the operations of TLDR Press. We previously announced that we had created the social media policy. This was not an easy task, and it took a lot of consulting to come up with something that most people think is very straightforward. We are also working on a privacy policy for TLDR Press, and we hope that that should be finished soon. There is a considerable amount of detailed writing to complete, which takes time.

TLDR Press Launched!

TLDR Press (tl;dr Press) went live for the first time yesterday across multiple platforms. We did encounter some issues with the broadcast, but at the same time, it was a significant achievement. It’s one thing to broadcast to a single platform in one resolution like 1080P; It’s another to be able to broadcast to multiple platforms at 1080P. Traditionally, when broadcasting to numerous platforms, the signal (quality) gets downgraded from 1080P to 720P, which many people find unacceptable. We can now broadcast to up to seven different platforms with our current license, thanks to a new broadcasting and streaming system that we’ve discovered. Depending on how well things go, we can expand that up to 10 platforms and potentially even 15 simultaneous streams.

It’s not an easy task to launch a new platform and indeed in the early days, there were many disagreements amongst members of the team on what type of name we should assign this new project. Originally we were going to call it the Nova Scotia Government Review. Its sole purpose was to report on what Nova Scotia Government officials and agencies were saying so that the people of Nova Scotia would understand what’s going on or at least not what’s actually going on instead of what the corporate media tell them.

It was a matter of sitting down one evening and looking at a bunch of news stories and hearing one person complain about how there was just too much information coming in, so he said, “what’s the tldr?”

At that moment, after realizing that so many people find news articles and stories simply too long to read, we had to come up with something different, and that’s where the name was officially changed to TLDR Press or as stylized tl;dr Press.

After a few hours of looking at different styles of logos, we were able to come up with something simple yet elegant that stands out from all of the rest. If you look back to the top of the page, you can see the brand’s official logo. As seen in the image below, we also have a very simple header image used in streaming when there’s nothing to be displayed on the screen. These images are designed to be clean and straightforward.

Once we had a name picked out, we had to start creating all of the social media accounts and all the accounts across the different broadcasting platforms. We do not have addresses for many of the accounts yet, but we will gladly provide them once they are officially released. Since yesterday was the first official live stream that we will be converting to a podcast, it will take the next 10 to 14 days for the podcast episodes to be distributed across all nine platforms that we are hoping to be listed. Therefore, we should update those addresses towards the end of January.

After setting up the social media accounts and broadcasting channels, we completely forgot about our domain name and that’s very important. It was hard to find a name because TLDR is a concise phrase, and it’s on the top of many people’s lists. We wanted something unique and something that people would be able to remember. We know that everybody is used to your standard .COM or we prefer to use .CA, so we had a look at the different extensions that you can now purchase and decided to go with something new but also highly premium.

After pouring through quite literally hundreds of different domain extensions, we finally settled on one that we think everyone will love. We are pleased to announce our official domain name for TLDR press will be tldr.press

We purchased the domain name and have migrated the DNS information to our current server. We are currently using a placeholder to look for an appropriate content management system. We hope to have the website up and running by the end of this week, at least in a basic form. Once we get better analytics on the performance of TLDR Press, we will be moving it to its own server, so it doesn’t interfere with the operations of the frost tech mainframe.


Doctor Hubert J. Farnsworth – Futurama

Over the past several days, there have been quite a few developments at FrostTek Productions. While we initially wanted to start production on several different things, we had to wait until registration and licensing were complete for legal reasons. We received an email with confirmation and our new business license two days before Christmas. Of course, it was a little too late to start working on many things, so shortly after Christmas, it was the 27th, we immediately started converting all of our old accounts over from the Eaton Media Group brand to FrostTek Productions. Note that some names already needed to be changed, but we had some issues converting accounts.

Many email addresses and accounts had to be updated and fixed, which has taken a very long time. Old social media accounts had to be removed in cases where we could not transfer ownership, and new social media accounts have been created. FrostTel Productions from here on out will not produce any actual content of its own. It is merely a production company that produces content under several different banners.

To create content that caters to the broadest array of viewership possible, we have created several different categories and the corresponding brand accounts for those categories. We are working diligently to create some separation between the different types of content production because we don’t want to have overlap.

An excellent example of this is our new TLDR Press brand. Content produced specifically for TLDR Press is designed for general consumption. It’s intended to check what’s going on around the province of Nova Scotia. Its sole purpose is to collect as much information as possible and disseminate it so that it does not interject with personal opinion and merely sticks to the facts. In contrast, Mr. Reality Check is a deep dive, intellectual dark web style podcast. It will look at subjects in a much more critical light and allow more opinion-based commentary.

Today marked a serious milestone because we conducted our first multistream covering three different platforms for both TLDR Press and Mr. Reality Check, which meant that we were running a total of 6 streams. It was a little tricky. There were many technical difficulties. We had some communication errors with some of the guests that appeared on today’s episode and dealt with those. We are still waiting for a lot of hardware to arrive, and hopefully, it will be shipping out within the next five days.

We look forward to bumping up the production schedule, and more people are actively joining the team. As it sits, we have potentially 2 to 3 guests willing to be reoccurring contributors to the show on either TLDR Press or Mr. Reality Check.

We have finally figured out some of the significant issues on things’ gaming and entertainment side. We were doing a live stream before Christmas using the Nvidia broadcast software to use the AI features in our new graphics card, but unfortunately. However, the recorded version of the stream was perfect. There was no lag or glitching whatsoever. The broadcasted version actually had several issues that seriously degraded the audio and gaming performance.

Now that the new year is finally here, as mentioned above it should be about five days before the other equipment is finally shipped out. Then we will be in a much better position to finally start the production of videos daily.

One thing that has delayed the relaunch in creating all of this content has been simply waiting for new hardware to arrive. There are so many issues with the supply chain right now that it is nearly impossible to get what we actually need

The other major issue that we’ve been waiting for was licensing. Several things in the province’s business landscape in Nova Scotia and Canada have changed. Many social media platforms have also changed their terms of service, which means we’ve had to review these new rules and regulations to make sure that we’re separating everything.

Personally, as the managing partner, I have had to take a step back and look at a number of the projects that we were attempting to put together. After two years of delay, there is no sense in even trying to resurrect those long-dead and delayed projects. We’re going to be cleaning things up and delivering content hopefully daily by the end of the month, so please, make sure you keep an eye out because we’re going to make a lot of really nifty stuff.

Mr. Reality Check 2.0

It is with great honour that today we announced the return of the Mr. Reality Check podcast. Originally airing in 2020, being hosted on nine podcasting platforms, publishing a total of 8 eBooks, the podcast was delisted and discontinued as the host fell critically ill.

Over the past several months, it has become apparent that things have gotten so disastrous in our society that something has to be done. This is why instead of re-branding, a minor update has taken place in the Mr. Reality Check version 2.0 podcast is being officially announced today.

We live in a world where censorship and information control have become so excessive that it has created a fundamental disconnect from reality. A disconnect that is so severe that we can quite literally watch an event unfold in real-time in front of our eyes, and yet depending on the political affiliation, personal bias or even prejudice around the event, the details and commentary that we can expect can be wildly different than what actually happened.

This fundamental disconnect from reality has caused such a deep division in our society that it is nearly impossible to communicate with people or have an intellectual discussion about almost any subject because everyone has been polarized into a tribalistic mentality. If somebody says something that goes against what you believe, they must be the enemy.

There are subjects that either the government or private industries have said we cannot discuss. Events unfold in the world around us that we can’t discuss because the authorities don’t want us to. The fact that we have a conversation and discuss events is dangerous. If we are permitted to talk about them, we are only allowed to have an opinion that fits into a very narrow window.

I have had enough; I will not be silenced any longer. I will not bite my tongue so somebody doesn’t get offended. My right to speak, think, and express my difference of opinion will not be repressed by someone else’s privilege to be offended. I will not allow your intolerance and bigotry towards diversity of thought to shut me down. I will not apologize, and I will never bend a knee for the mob.

This is my podcast. I am Mr. Reality Check
