20:35:23 JL: http://www.webcastacademy.net/class_of_1.2_orientation
20:35:47 lee: ah ha
20:35:49 lee: well.
20:35:59 lee: actually I just figured that out
20:36:46 lee: You may open nicecast and skype initially
20:37:24 cheryloakes: lost my connection
20:37:27 lee: you have to make sure you check your advanced feature in the effects box...
20:37:42 JL: https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=...
20:38:00 cheryloakes: thanks
20:39:27 lee: I will make anew nicecast video tutorial in the next day or two..to include all the minute details of broadcasting with nicecast, mac, and skype!
20:39:51 lee: not to worry!!
20:40:11 elderbob: Is there a wiki for the academy?
20:41:26 elderbob: Lee will do advance audio editing.
20:41:46 lee: Yes..that is fine!
20:41:55 elderbob: Ill be glad to help out on it.
20:42:15 elderbob: Ok.
20:42:29 lee: yes.. soon to be released
20:42:42 lee: should be done by tuesday
20:43:00 JasonR: There was also a recent MacBreak video podcast on nicecast, Macbreak #11... http://www.macbreak.com/
20:43:59 lee: great jason
20:44:19 JasonR: Timidly raises hand to host Topic#4, "Post-production and advanced audio editing"

20:46:13 JasonR: Thanks, JL
20:46:27 alicebarr: Yes thanks!
20:46:47 cheryloakes: back
20:47:04 JL: http://www.webcastacademy.net/node/172
20:47:10 cheryloakes: ye,s I second this thank you
20:47:23 cheryloakes: just listening to the stream and in chat
20:48:40 cheryloakes: I like 2 sessions per topic
20:48:50 alicebarr: I do too
20:48:53 elderbob: The two would take some burden off the rest of us, who have other things in our lives as well.
20:49:17 elderbob: If you miss one, you can catch the second one.
20:49:45 elderbob: It's only 9:00 PM for me now....
20:50:16 alicebarr: I like this time
20:50:28 Paul_Ellerman: I think I can do this time...
20:50:28 elderbob: And did I understand that all of these sessions will be podcast?
20:50:31 JasonR: Buy more servers :)
20:50:45 cheryloakes: I like this time too
20:50:51 elderbob: Or burn the podcast to CD to be able to listen to it on my car.
20:50:52 alicebarr: But I like the idea of having 2 sessions so as many people as possible can participate
20:51:24 cheryloakes: I like that too, Alice, and it is summer for us in NAmerica so I am more flexible.
20:51:59 alicebarr: me too
20:52:08 elderbob: But lots of time I need recorded reminders in addition to live help.
20:52:29 elderbob: Remember, I am old, and it takes me many attempts to finally get it.
20:52:43 alicebarr: I like this idea of being able to hear the session again
20:53:43 JasonR: Felt that way about the library tour of SL...anxiety about recording. Glad Snapz worked.
20:54:16 arvind_grover: so sorry i am late guys!
20:54:17 JasonR: How do we all become Skype buddies with each other?
20:54:22 JasonR: Post IDs?
20:54:29 JasonR: Skype me: cephalopodcast
20:54:38 alicebarr: Forums but there should be a regular meeting time

20:55:27 JasonR: Maybe we include them in our profiles
20:55:28 Lee: skype....lbaber
20:55:29 elderbob: Could we post a list of Skype IDS somewhere, so those that dont yet have them can get them out to all of us.
20:55:40 arvind_grover: and post Skype ID's on the Elgg site
20:55:51 Lee: well... how bout the google calender for times you will be testing

20:58:27 arvind_grover: on Mac that is...
20:58:41 elderbob: Yes.

21:00:29 cheryloakes: Mon. nite is good
21:00:48 elderbob: No matter what time you set, one way or another, it will be a problem for all of us on some date.
21:00:55 cheryloakes: one day afternoon, one nite a different day?
21:01:46 JasonR: Can we do a poll on the sidebar of Webcast Academy website?
21:01:58 JL: good idea
21:03:14 elderbob: Post it and they will come.
21:03:37 JasonR: Sundays-ish sounds popular
21:03:49 JasonR: Cool

21:04:12 alicebarr: What was the Thurday?
21:04:34 alicebarr: Tahnsk!
21:05:23 Brad_Hicks: what's happening with CMS?
21:05:28 JasonR: Skype N00b question...how do I make friends/buddies out of you all?
21:05:28 elderbob: and there will be another newsletter before then?
21:05:46 Jseal: Good question re: CMS?

21:06:04 Lee: Paul, folks can im the 1.1 interns
21:06:18 Lee: to help catch up if needed!
21:06:34 cheryloakes: thanks for this
21:06:35 elderbob: What a seque.
21:06:44 Paul_Ellerman: Ok. I guess i better get an Im installed... refomratted and just never got around to it again...
21:06:50 alicebarr: Thanks
21:06:51 cheryloakes: bye
21:06:55 Paul_Ellerman: bye
21:06:56 elderbob: So it still has not started.
21:07:42 Brad_Hicks: I did it the other week no problems on bluehost- when did that change
21:07:45 Brad_Hicks: Jeff?
21:08:42 Jseal: Any good recomendations for a hosting for the drupal?
21:09:10 elderbob: Fantasticos comment was that they wont carry any application that does not have the bugs out.
21:09:25 elderbob: I did not know they had dropped it...becuase I set mine up from Fantastico.
21:10:57 JasonR: brb
21:12:18 JL: If anyone's interested in joining, skypecast is at https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=...
21:12:49 JasonR: Sorry...so where/how do I begin with drupal?
21:13:03 DS: drupal.org
21:13:16 arvind_grover: wordpress is much simpler in my opinion, a simple blog software (for 1 blog) that allows multiple bloggers
21:13:20 arvind_grover: drupal is much more powerful
21:13:26 elderbob: Its a really hard question. I have Wordpress, Typepad, Joomla, Drupal...Moodle....I think it is a matter of personal choice.
21:13:34 arvind_grover: but drupal is more complicated as a result
21:13:43 elderbob: Frankly, I like Joomla better than Drupal.
21:15:29 Jseal: Thanks
21:15:33 arvind_grover: i still have drupal on my fantastico on http://site5.com (my host)
21:15:35 Jseal: hello
21:16:38 arvind_grover: how do i join the skypecast?
21:16:45 JL: https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=...
21:17:19 Jseal: That's what I've read
21:17:38 Lee: Hello Arvind
21:17:52 Lee: alex
21:18:45 arvind_grover: hi lee
21:19:13 Jseal: My wife is also a library director with a very static web 1.0 website that she wants updated.
21:21:12 elderbob: I think the Security issues will come up in communication from the applications....sign up for their newletters and they will usually make you aware of it.
21:21:57 elderbob: Get their newsletters.....Security would be a really good topic for the CMS acadamy.
21:22:35 arvind_grover: security is challenging with the web and with open source. there are always concerns. not as much with certain environments though. i.e. don't keep credit card numbers in your drupal site!
21:22:41 Brad_Hicks: issues based on your knowledgse ofe ttin g up too Jeff
21:22:52 Brad_Hicks: setting up*
21:22:53 elderbob: Just getting in there and Trying it on....thats the best way to learn it.
21:22:59 JasonR: That's it for me...drupal.org is overwhelming. Imagine it will be like playing with Wordpress. Don't need to know PHP to start taking baby steps.
21:23:07 elderbob: You can always delete or unpublish what doesnt work....
21:23:10 Brad_Hicks: yep
21:23:44 Jseal: I'm also a very beginner and get overwhelmed
21:24:12 Jseal: should we get sites set up before the end of registration?
21:24:15 elderbob: I just looked at my server host, and Fantastico still carries Drupal.
21:24:17 Lee: yes
21:24:48 elderbob: They are all essentially the same....
21:25:11 elderbob: The terms vary...and there is a lot of dicussion about standardizinng the terminology.
21:25:18 Brad_Hicks: I'm starting to try and use it
21:25:21 elderbob: Yea, what he isays about taxonomy.
21:25:21 Lee: hear hear
21:26:25 DS: comes back to the notion of "recipe" -- what Arvind was saying about taxonomy
21:26:36 DS: and how it can be used
21:27:06 elderbob: Elgg says the next version will have a much improved UI.
21:27:34 arvind_grover: i like it, i thikn it has room to grow (elgg)
21:28:37 Lee: i agree arvind
21:28:41 elderbob: My ears are growing bleary, and since my time is really flexible, I will let you all post the time somewhere, and I'll be there with Drupals on my toes.
21:28:49 Lee: i am using it for my classes...started last yeaer
21:28:51 elderbob: I am now bailing out of here.
21:29:02 Lee: bye bob!
21:29:04 arvind_grover: goodnight elderbob
21:29:05 arvind_grover: see you around
21:29:07 Lee: Thanks
21:29:12 elderbob: Nice to meet you all and I looke forward to hearing much more from you all in the future.
21:29:14 elderbob: night.
21:29:29 Lee: but am glad to have other elggers to learn to use it
21:29:47 elderbob: and if it matters, I already have a drupals set up.
21:29:54 DS: thanks everyone for a wonderful discussion
21:30:20 Jseal: Thank you as well from me
21:30:43 Lee: Just a big Thank YOu
21:30:53 Brad_Hicks: Thanks Jeff
21:31:01 Lee: I feel challenged to finish, start, and continue
21:31:04 DS: thanks Jeff
21:31:05 JasonR: Goodnight
21:31:07 Jseal: goodnight
21:31:08 arvind_grover: goodinght all
21:31:09 Lee: everything!
