    Since we are such a supportive group, the only ones we can pick on are the ones who don't play. Even then, the bruises heal pretty quickly. :D

    Derision, a shot (leave the bottle) and plenty of cold beer. I can work with that. shrug-smiley.png

    No David. He is talking about this year, not next year...

    I think I recorded most of both days' sessions, but haven't done anything with them.

    That's okay we're still waiting on @FrankL to release Beaufort 2015. It's only been five years.

    But in "Frank years", I guess that's considered a "short" time. ;)

    Even a pointer to the raw recording would be cool. I'd like top hear what my guitar & vocals sounded like using just the ONE mic.

    Hopefully, I'll get to it. The only problem is each day is one long file and they run between 4 and 5 gigabytes each. I don't think YT will let me upload something that large.

    Oh, God, I hope not!!! I didn’t sign a release and I will sue for defamation of no-character! Isn’t there some kind of rule about what goes on at a BGU Live event (actual or virtual), stays at a BGU Live event?!

    I think I'm in agreement with jmin. I'm not quite sure I'd be delighted to see our Zoom conference immortalized on youtube.

    I don't think there is anything to be gained from giving them video evidence before the arrest warrants are issued.

    I expect I'd eventually get over it, though.

    Maybe use Dropbox?

    Or split them into shorter segments- I know, more work for you.

    Looks like October 3 is the day. That gives anyone interested two weeks to prepare something (if you want to play during the session). We will start around 3PM Eastern Daylight time (GMT -0400) and go until ??.
    For anyone interested who did not attend, I strongly recommend getting your audio and video up and running ahead of time. It's no fun for attendees to sit around waiting while someone works on configuring. From what we learned from the first few sessions, if you have a basic setup (laptop with built-in mic and camera) you will generally not have an issue getting set up. I will probably do a couple of setup sessions the week of Sept 28 - October 2 to help anyone who is having issues or wants to test their setup prior to the get-together. Those will be posted in the Lounge at the time the sessions go live.
