Jason just announced on Force-cast LIVE on TFN that the Force-cast will be on Ustream but...sadly no show on Wed.

Posting a new thread about this isn't necessary. Jason made the post, so let everyone find that post and read it themselves. No use being redundant.

No problem with this thread at all. kitfistofan was simply making everyone aware of this positive change, especially those that might not read every thread.

The assigned Mods of this forum will decide which threads(s) are appropriate or not.

Okay, your call. My impression was that a separate thread for an announcement that had already been made in a stickied thread was unnecessary. But again, it's your call.

Agreed.

I edited the initial post to include the Force-Cast Ustream link.

Ok cool, so is this a change over from Stickam?

Thanks for posting! I have a lot of threads to catch up on, and I'm skipping most of them. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Hopefully I'll be able to come back to the live show when I get back! Does Ustream have a chat thingY?

Yah is there a chat on it, because if there isn't it's going to take some of the fun out of listening to the ForceCast live.

Plus why?

Ustream is just like Stickam, but no webcam fun, at least not for us listeners. There is a spot for Jason's webcam.

That's too bad about the listeners webcams. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif That can get really fun! But at least we have chat!

Any particular reason for the change? SOrry if it's already been mentioned, I've been out of the loop http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Quite a few technical issues with using Stickam during the live show.

Listening to the show and the references made regarding the live chat always makes me sad that I can't join in. We have church classes on Wednesdays so I'm never able to participate, but maybe one day.

Depending on how late you get home from Bible class, you may still be able to catch the chat. I generally catch at least a few minutes of the show after our classes. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I might try to give it a whirl. I'd love to participate. Our classes end at 7:30 central, but most people aren't gone until 8 or 8:15. I have a solid 30 minute drive home after that. The earliest I could practically get on if I wait until I get home is 9 or 9:15. Every now and then I might be able to just join in from my office at the church. Hope to see you guys on the live show soon!

I've never been on Ustream before, but I'm sure Jason made sure it was a good choice before doing anything. Where ever the Force-Cast goes, I will follow.

Out of the 3 different technologies used for the live FC show, I believe UStream was the most satisfying. The only downside I can see is the loss of the listener cams and all the spontaneity and fun they caused.

yep but i have been using Ustream and it is awesome

I started using Stickam, Ustream, and now Twitter because of the Force Cast.

Yup, great show from start to finish.

Was it just me or did Jimmy's audio come through louder and more clear last night?

The only thing that was not a positive was the chat window being much smaller than what we're used to. Because of its size, you really have to be quick to keep up with everything going on.

true.
Where was that "scrolling" chat that was color coded and went from left to right? Was that on the troublesome "Talkshoe"?

Ustream worked great! I miss seeing Eric's dancing and sheldon's Threepios, but no tech problems was worth it. Great work Force-Cast!

Tell you what, about half way through the spectacular show last night I realized just how much better UStream is. I'm so glad we switched back. Not one second of lag and the audio was heard throughout the entire show. Absolutely perfect!
