Again, this will primarily be a test, and we will decide after the fact whether we want to permanently move our show to Skype?s new network.
So, if you want to be here on Saturday, what do you need to do? Well, on Saturday, the phpBB Weekly Skypecasts page will have a ?Join this Skypecast? link. You will need to have a Skype account and have downloaded the latest version of Skype for this to work.
Skypecasts does not include a chat room, so we will be congregating on irc.freenode.net in the #phpbb-weekly channel. I will also try to keep my eyes on the Star Trek Guide chatbox as well.
We will not be participating in the TalkShoe Live! chat room, however as a courtesy to our regular TalkShoe streamers, I will try to hook the Skypecasts call in with TalkShoe so that you can listen to the call through TalkShoe?s live stream. Of course, this assumes that TalkShoe cooperates, I?m able to get Skypecasts to connect to the TalkShoe phone number, and I?m only guaranteeing that we will do this for this particular episode.
Also, unless there?s some hidden button or setting that I can?t find until David points me to it, Skypecasts is really nothing more than a public Skype conference call, which means that if you call in, you will be live immediately. Therefore, please make my life so much easier by calling in with headphones in order to prevent echo and background noise, otherwise, I?ll have to stop what I?m saying to scroll through the list and find out who?s making the gossip in order to mute them. I don?t know, if we end up using Skypecasts, we may end up having to hire someone to be an ad hoc call screener. :/
Have any questions about this Saturday?s setup? Leave a note in the comments below or go to the phpBB Weekly forum topic. Also, for those of you who do participate in the show live, we will be asking you to post your feedback in the phpBB Weekly forum (with a feedback link to be announced during the show) to help us decide if we want to make the switch.
Again, thank you for working with us as we evaluate this transition. Going through these growing pains now will help us make phpBB Weekly a better show in the future.
