Shygost's lessons are being transcribed by me for those who miss out on them. If you find mistakes, please let me know via this page, and I'll fix them up as soon as I can.
You can download the saved audio files, and the transcribed SGF lessons from http://tengen.bur.st/
xela Now that's I've transcribed a lesson, I realise why there is such a long gap between the lesson happening and the transcription appearing on the web site--it takes much longer than one hour to transcribe an hour lesson! (Of course, it's possible that I'm just exceptionally slow, and others can do it more efficiently...) It's been a good way to review the lesson, so it's an experience that I'd recommend to anyone else; but I won't have time to do this every week--and we can't expect sduff and NannyOgg to handle the entire lot. Is there anyone else out there who would like to volunteer to transcribe the occasional lesson? Myself, I should be able to continue "subtitling" the 03:00 GMT lessons in real time, and maybe do a transcription once every four weeks or so. If half a dozen people are willing to take turns, it doesn't become a burden on any one individual.
NannyOgg I second xela's request, and it also would be great if we had some more people recording, so that there will be redundancy, and less chance to totally miss out on recordings of any given lecture (like Mar 4). I use camstudio to record, it's a free program, and pretty easy to use.
postglock: Thanks for the transcriptions and the lessons, however, I've downloaded the first three transcripted files from http://tengen.bur.st/ and all contain sgf errors according to CGoban v3.3.4. For example, the first lesson has about 30 errors, all similar to "A property with type "AB" on line 158 conflicts with another property. The previous property will be removed." I'm not sure if this is important, and of course the new version of CGoban may be to blame. Also, the sgf says to post to this page if there are problems, but the reference is incorrect. It says http://senseis.xmp.net/Shygost/Lessons and is missing a question mark (should be http://senseis.xmp.net/?Shygost/Lessons ). Thanks!
Numbering is off here since we didn't keep track for a while. So changing to bullet list
"Openning" should be spelt "opening". This occurs several times in the SGF -- sduff
In the part of explaining why black should play b as an approach in the upper left corner. There is a point d shown twice as alternative play on the right side and in the upper left corner. And one of the d points is on the second line at s11, i think it should be r11 on the third line for the lower chinese opening.
Move 7 Shygost suggests this move, R6, as the 'Basic Move', at least locally. Should be R16, not R6
Black likes this, so White has the burden of stopping black from exploiting this.
White can avoid this by approaching from further away. This stops Black from simply [simply what?]
D13(?) is not that effective in the current board setup. If the board position were like this, Black's diagonal play is good.
But it is not usual to play it against the 4-4 stone.
Has been transcribed (should be in your mailbox, sduff). ( - NannyOgg)
NannyOgg - I put it up on http://www.plomp.com/shygost/lessonFeb7Transcription.sgf for now till sduff has time to update the tengen page.
Working on transcribing that one, but keep getting distracted by life ^^ Hope to finish it this week. ( - NannyOgg)
NannyOgg: Started transcribing this one on April 6, Finally DONE! http://www.plomp.com/shygost/shygostFeb11transcription.sgf

Happy to announce that we managed to get nine of the shygost videos available using bittorent. Here are the two bittorrent files for shygost's lectures.
There are two because azureus is incompatible with other bittorrent clients. So you must use the torrent labeled 'azureus only' if and only if you have azureus. All other clients should use the other torrent. If you don't know much about bittorrent, it's a rather painless process to get involved. We recommend the utorrent client http://www.utorrent.com .This client is lightweight and featureful. After you have downloaded it, you more or less just open the torrent file, and off you go!
Thanks to hlamonde for getting the lectures down to a reasonable size and to gryn for helping set up the bittorrent.
mafutrct: Some more videos are available at http://senseis.xmp.net/?Recorder
Btw, could someone please add the status of the esnips videos?
