Hi. Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase the download of the Tricks with Hats DVD? I believe that is was made by Little Paul and Richard Loxley. It used to be for sale on the Tricks with Hats website.

Thanks for any help!

I have let Richard know you're interested. I expect he'll be along before too long to help out.

Hi Greg,

Yes, technically it's still available to buy! Although through a series of expired domains the link is almost impossible to find now.

You can get it here:
https://sites.fastspring.com/richardloxley/product/trickswithhatsvideo

But beware, it's DivX format (which was about as good as we could do in 2007 and have a manageable download size) so needs an appropriate player, and the quality isn't quite as good as the DVD.

Incidentally, we stopped actively promoting it several years ago, and have both agreed to make it available for online streaming for free, but that requires a bit of effort for me to try to find the original rendered files on whichever hard disk and obsolete computer they're squirrelled away on, and upload it somewhere.

So in the meantime, if you enter JUGGLING-EDGE-AUGUST-SPECIAL in the checkout before the end of the month you should be able to download it free of charge :-)

(That goes for anyone else BTW, the coupon should be unlimited uses.)

I have a vague memory of having already put it online for streaming somewhere, but I really can’t remember where.

This amuses me

“Rare” (and probably unplayable by now)

Wow! I have a box of them up in my loft. I should list them at half that price and clean up ;-)

I seem to remember you gave them back to me when you found half of them were getting returned as they wouldn't play, and we decided to move to download only.

That is awesome!!! Thank you so much!

Well this is awkward. I’ve just discovered that someone had bought the trickswithhats.org domain name and reposted the site.

Without me knowing about it.

The site is back online, all the original content, but not hosted by me.

Does anyone know who did that?

I don't know. There are some links, pics and vids missing, so I assume someone scraped all the files they could from the Wayback Machine, and put it all back up. If anyone's looking for the vids, they're (all?) at http://juggling.tv/users/7233/TricksWithHats . And if Mysterio is reading, hey, link it up! :-)

Little Paul - - Parent

The whole site is still online at http://twh.lpbk.net (and has been ever since I lost control of the domain name) including the original video files (although they're easier to watch on juggling.tv)

If anyone does know who is hosting it, please ask them to reach out to me.

I noticed that when I was looking up the internet archive version. I presumed you must have regained control of the domain.

I wonder who did that - a fan maybe? It certainly doesn't seem to be monetised.

Have you checked with drunk you?

Little Paul - - Parent

I checked with Mikey if that’s what you mean…
