Loading Time: Moving the Moonbase

LRR Behind the Scenes

As promised, here’s the Loading Time for our move into the Moonbase Mk. III. It took longer to get online that I had hoped, due to some strange upload issues with YouTube and our trip to Boston, but exporting with a different codec (and, unfortunately, at only 720p rather than 1080p) seems to have fixed the problem.

We’re really excited to be in this new place, and we’re also very thankful that everyone helped us find it back after we lost it.

Speaking of that Runners Operation, I should have a winner all picked out by the end of the week, and I’ll share some of the entries with you all when I do. Once that piece of business has been dealt with, next week should bring a new challenge for you all to complete. I’m looking forward to it!



  1. It looks very nice.

  2. In case you were wondering, a function generator is used for producing an A/C charge in circuits that you can set the voltage to whatever you want.

  3. Totally need to challenge Penny Arcade to ping-pong now.

  4. Man, this reminds me of last year when we repainted this house and moved all of our crap over. Fun times. Not :(

  5. So professional looking.

  6. I’ve always been curious, will you guys every be perhaps selling any old props for one reason or another? or perhaps a random thing with all your signatures on it, namely Graham, Paul, Kathleen, Matt, and Bill, and perhaps Morgan. If so I’d be giddy with excitement to spend my hard earned money on it so I have something that came from famous people.

  7. Nice new digs, guys. Now, what room are you going to be running Desert Bus out of this year?

  8. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them move the table out of the meeting room and run it in there, looks like the largest room they have.

  9. That is massive amounts of rad.

    Take some Rad-X.

  10. That place looks huge in comparison to the old place. Good job guys! looking forward to more videos!

  11. it is a palace compared to mrk.II and it is pretty awesome!

    and NOOOOO TOAST!!!!

  12. a) Graham totally side-stepped “…load of work getting this place ready to run…”

    b) I don’t see why you’d need such a large truck to move Kathleen, she’s looks pretty light to me!

    c) That X-Ray… doesn’t seem to make any anatomical sense!

    d) Since it has a skylight, now all you need is a hot-tub!

  13. a function generator is used in the testing of electronics, It creates electrical wave forms that pass through the intended circuit. what post #2 is thinking of is a power supply

  14. A function generator is used in electronic design and testing at the design level. It generates many different waveforms (Usually selected by left knob) such as a Sine, Saw-Tooth (or Ramp) and even square waves. It can create these wave forms at many different frequencies (Usually the right knob). Most often in testing, the function generator acts as a signal input (not power) that gets processed by the circuit and the output is checked via an Oscilloscope.

  15. Toast needs a proper funeral. Honestly, I’m shocked that he (I’m assuming gender, since he apparently hooked up with Tally before she left him for the Rye) lasted so long without getting moldy and white. It’s a plastic bag, not a vacuum-sealed chamber.

    I would love to hear the eulogy at Toast’s funeral.

  16. For the record, it was pretty obvious that x-ray was from an animal. Just sayin’, because I get off on being right.

  17. You know, you guys wouldn’t have such a giant wall of merch if you sent me an XL T-shirt or 2 for free….You know you wanna :)

    Also, is there a place for me to crash there, I’d like to see Canada and mooch off of internet stars for a couple days, or years…or forever.

  18. Listen to all these supposed electronics experts! With a more complete understanding of a function generator’s uses, it would have been obvious to the crew that throwing out Toast was unnecessary. He’s probably scattered in some seagull’s poop by now and his Katra is lost forever. What a waste! You should all be ashamed.
