Wow! Amazing chat! We covered the news of the week, an update on our new clock kit that will coming out soon (MONOCHRON) answered questions, gave a kit away, and made electronics LIVE using the pick and place machine… Mosfet the cat even stopped in! See you next week! Oh, don’t forget to enter the “Ask an engineer” banner design contest!

  1. Is there a transcript somewhere that I could read? Or is this one of those “of the moment” things?

  2. it’s all video, so it’s one of those “of the moment” things

  3. That was a good show. Next time, please use Adobe Flash Encoder h.264 and set your capture input to 640×360 (16:9). please always use 30 fps. I have 2 Lifecam Cinema HD, i use it all the time with these settings, it is an awesome quality broadcast camera for the price. To get full 30 fps with the Lifecam Cinema HD, you must turn OFF “exposure” and set it to “-6” from the camera capture filter preferences panel. Also, it is better to turn OFF autofocus and set it manually.

  4. we’re using a mac so we can’t do that yet, but once we get a pc dedicated to streaming that’s tops on our list.

  5. Thanks for the clarification; I’ll make a point of tuning in next week. Hope our Canuck intertubes aren’t clogged then.

  6. When exactly are these? I finally remembered for today put it happened in th am.
