Apologies, everyone. The Skype servers have completely gone south, leaving us all in the cold. We'll have to try it again next week, this time with a different platform and yet more testing. Curses!
This Saturday we'll be recording the GWJ Conference Call Live via Skypecast! We'll have a live text chat through Skype and we'll also be bringing on listeners to chat with us as part of the show. Skypecast is in beta, so I can't promise it won't be a complete train wreck, but I bet it'll be a fun one!
You will need a couple things if you plan to join the party at 7PM CST on Saturday night.
1) Download and install the latest Skype. It's a good idea to uninstall your previous version first. You'll need a Skype (free) account if you don't have one.
2) Test your Mic! In Skype, go to Tools - Audio Settings and see how your levels look. Uncheck "Let Skype adjust my audio settings" and make sure your audio output seems to spike in the middle or a bit more.
3) Keep an eye on this space for a link to the text chat once the show starts. To launch the Skypecast, simply click this link. Don't worry, you can be running both at once
That's it! If you can't make the show, we'll still be releasing the recording on Wednesday as usual so don't worry!
