I stumbled across this forum while trying to find a guide to help a friend learn how to encode. (Explaining was taking too long, images rock lol).
Anyways, I encode anime's in my free time and have been looking for a group to work with instead of doing random side projects. Most of my work has been for myself or for friends who want something specific such as 8bit encodes instead of 10. Just wrapping up an 8bit encode of Highschool DxD and starting on a raw of Seto no Hanayome in 1080 that I found (I'll be doing 8bit and 10bit if anyone is interested).
Random background info about me: I work as an IT specialist for a small non profit organization in the USA. When stuff isn't broken (aka when I'm doing a good job) I have a lot of free time to work on encodes and anime watching. I love anime in general with harems being my favorite. I am an otaku and a bit of a hikikomori. I am also a bit obsessed with music. Shameless plug to Josh Agarrado whom I've worked with a few times(http://josh.agarrado.net/music/anime/).
Let me know if I can be of service as encoder, server support, or random transcriptions.
