Hello all,

Welcome to the beginnning of the "formal" classes for Webcastacademy for the English-language version of the Class of 3.1.1

I've been involved with WCA for a little over 2 years and have worked with a number of interns beginning with the class of 1.1. I'm really looking forward to learning with the class of 3.1.1 and can't wait to meet each of you.


Today we came up with the tag we'll be using for the Earth Day Webcastathon 2008. Please tag any related media with earthcast08 so we can find your stuff. Look forward to having you join us on April 22, 2008.

Removing and replacing battery seems to have resolved "sound issues" on my Dell Latitude D800

Wanted to share my experience of this afternoon regarding "audio issues" with my Dell Latitude D800 laptop. Out of nowhere I began having trouble with the sound on my laptop. The internal speakers weren't producing any sound -- no start-up/shut-down for Windows, or anything else -- and plugging in headphones led "white noise" but even that was extremely faint.

I went into the audio settings and everything seemed as it should be. Control Panel > System > Device Manager also indicated that everything was working as it should, although I still was unable to get any sound out of the machine.
