“Ask an engineer” is Saturday night 10pm ET – 1/23/2010

Pt 2481
“Ask an engineer” is Saturday night 10pm ET – 1/16/2010 and for another week in a row going to spend a lot of the evening experimenting with a new multi-camera set up (3 cameras!), picture-in-picture and push pre-recorded video in to the LIVE stream. This is all in preparation for more features, segments and fun with our weekly show! We’ll still answer your questions and we’ll still have a give away, we’ll just be playing “live” with a lot of video stuff. Just keep in mind, it all might not work 🙂

  1. You have probably had several requests for this already, but recording and making available the chats for later watching would be very helpful for those who have work or other obligations, are in incompatible time zones, etc. Just something to think about while you’re upgrading!
