Skype Progress

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

I am happy to report that we’ve made some real Skype progress today. The echo issue turned out to be some odd ALSA settings. We seem to have much of it straightened out now. We’ll do some more testing tomorrow, but things are looking up. You can also expect another podcast tomorrow.


Skype 1.0 for Linux (and MacOSX) finally at 1.0

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

Looks like Skype Version 1.0 for Linux and OSX has finally been released. I’ll be testing the new version for use on LQ Radio later today. Hopefully some of the sound issues we’ve been experiencing have been addressed. Stay tuned.


LQ Radio Update

Thursday, January 27th, 2005

After doing some testing and talking a bit more with Doug (who has been a huge help) it appears that a Skype-only system may not be able to give us the quality and reliability that I was hoping for. I’m going to take a few days to think about how to proceed, but I’d be interested to hear what feedback other have. Thanks.


LQ Radio Intro is now Available

Tuesday, January 25th, 2005

The LQ Radio intro spot is now ready. As always, your feedback is welcome – let us know what you think. I hope to have an update on our technical issues later today. I’d like to thank Tim for his help on this. He turned around what I think is a great intro in an extremely short amount of time. Much appreciated!

LQ Radio – Update

Monday, January 24th, 2005

Thanks to Doug from IT Conversations I have a very good idea of where I was going wrong with the current LQ Radio setup. The good news is I wasn’t too far off. I’ll be off to the store a little later to buy one more piece of equipment. Hopefully I’ll have another update for you later. Also, the intro should be recorded tomorrow, so things are coming along nicely.


LQ Radio Slogan and Logo

Friday, January 21st, 2005

As you can probably see, the LQ Radio logo is now up. Additionally, we have decided on the follow slogan:
Open Talk.. about Open Source.

If you have any feedback on either the logo or the slogan, leave a comment. Thanks.

LQ Radio Comments Are Now Threaded

Tuesday, January 18th, 2005

Thanks to david_ross, LQ Radio now has threaded comments, a feature that I think was sorely lacking. If you notice any problems with the new feature, please let us know ASAP. Thanks.


Where to Post LQ Podcasts?

Monday, January 17th, 2005

I asked over on My Blog, but I’ll ask here also. Where would you like to see LQ Podcasts posted – on my blog, where they currently are or here on LQ radio, in a dedicated LQ Podcast category?
