  1. Awesome! Will tune in.

  2. Here in europe it will be late in the night …
    I always miss the chats …
    Any chance someone can record a screencast ?

  3. UStream at the time doesn’t have (working) recording software, apparently, so unless a viewer tapes it, you’re out of luck (which is what you were asking for anyways

  4. I figured I may be able to record it myself …
    I’ll just start gtk-recordMyDesktop and stop it tomorrow morning.
    I hope it’ll work.

  5. I’ll see what I can do for recording, I’m already in the chat as we speak with auto-log on (as of 7:15 PM ET).

    Only thing I see being a hassle is the barage of “ustreamer-whoever ([email protected]) has entered” “ustreamer-whatever has left” messages on my client.

  6. Log available at http://adachat.trinetworks.org – please go easy on this hosting.

  7. I missed it, but it would have been nice if I could have watched it after the fact. I went to the ustream page and the only available video is one that shows product assembly.

    Sad to say, but I’m from the Tivo generation – I don’t watch media in real time. Is the video posted anywhere? Can you post it if it isn’t?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
