This info is ported over from a post in the blog, so some duplication is floating about while I set things up here!
Welcome to the Strombo Show Chat Blog!
I created this blog.. to support the Strombo Show Chat that is running on Skype now as StromboShowChat (see the various "former" posts for information, or if you need technical help getting setup, please contact me). I'm just getting the blog up & running finally now. I am working on a few FAQ & info pages still.. on techie stuff, how to sign up (but see this posting here: How to Sign-up: Strombo Show Chat on Skype), how the chat works on Skype, how to use/download/setup Skype if you are technical newbie, etc..
It's an "unofficial" chat (and blog) at the moment. Not sure if we'll ever get any official recognition at any point, but I am chatting with "the powers that be" (TPTB) (when I have time to email them again that is..) and that takes time.
I've "ported" posts that I originally put up on my own blog: http://unityintegration.blogspot.com ... but the Strombo Show Chat information was sorta taking it over & I have other plans for it well outside of and beyond the Strombo Show Chat stuff! I'll leave them duplicated there probably until the month end (April 2010 or likely end of May 2010 now) to make sure I have them successfully moved over with all information & then I'll probably delete them from there.
If anyone has any questions/concerns/etc.. please feel free to post or comment on here.. or drop me a note some other way (the side panel has some info or visit my other blog if you can't find it right now).
I am seeing about setting up a Strombo Show Chat email as well.. but I don't want to step on George's toes in anyway doing any of this stuff.. so I'm waiting for some response before I do anything more "official" like that.
Please join the chat session on Sunday nights..
Join up & join in on your time zone, or whenever you listen.
Interesting enough though.. most people are streaming the show online at CBC Radio 2 website: http://www.cbc.ca/radio2 and the earlier timezone(s).. 8pm AST/7pm EST/4 pm PST are the MOST popular at the moment, with most people out East tuning in & then signing off by ~8-8:30pm PST.. which is.. late.. out East.
I've currently planned to be around for the whole time frame across all time zones (4pm PST/8pm AST to midnight PST) since I'm out here in the West in Vancouver/PST.
Maybe in the future I'll sort out confirming some other moderators to help out.. but I listen 2x myself. 1st time in AST during the craziness of the chat.. and then the 2nd time (as long as the show is good, which is usually is..) in PST as it's quiet in the chat & I can catch things I missed and sit back, enjoy.. update this blog hopefully and occasionally a few people drop into the chat on CST/MST or the few PST folk stumble in...
So.. Please participate. Please engage.
Please offer feedback/insight/help/etc.
Yours in musical awesome-ness,
