The first open mic was amazing. Tons of talent from all over the world. Edmund and his bro in the UK stayed up til 3 in the morning Easter Sunday to perform. Crazy! Anyways, Mogulus has contacted us and want to feature our broadcasts whenever we do an open mic on their FRONT PAGE. Exciting stuff!

So here we go again! Sign up here if you're interested in participating in April's open mic.

Official Date of the 2nd UU open mic is April 19 2008
4:00pm HST (7:00pm PST)

Megapixels - like phones, cameras an such.

April 19th works for better for me, although if its past 12 midnight est, I could do the 26th as well.

Danyo Cummings

I'm still bummed i missed the 1st one but i'll most definitely participant in round 2. Sign me up son!

Megapixels - like phones, cameras an such.

The built-in iSight that comes in the MacBooks that Fred and I use are built for video conferencing. They're not built for taking still pictures, so the concept of megapixels doesn't really apply. These are webcams.

Most webcams stream 320 x 240. We are able to stream video 640 x 480 VGA quality if our upstream is wide enough. It is the camera I use for all of my YouTube videos.

But if you want to take still pictures, it takes pretty good ones at 640 x 480.

640 x 480 = .3 megapixel.

I'll try to remember to record this one. 4:00pm HST is pretty much the time that fits most people's schedules. Edmund stayed up til 3:00am in the UK last time. If you can think of a better time for the next one let me know. hehe.

Oh and also, if you guys go to mogulus.com now and scroll through the banners, you might see something pretty cool!

ah man. I was going to say how about 1 hour later, but then that would make people stay up until 4 am.

How about 3 hours later? Idk it's probably just me who has schedule problems..

Whoa. I guess I didn't put this together until now... I live in Ohio (yeah, I know, I know...UGH.) And...I know the time is different. So...I think Hawaii is 5 hours behind Ohio. Soooo if the open mic is 4:00 p.m. your time, it would be...11:00 a.m. my time. I'm supposed to be building sets for a high school play during that time...so...I might be open mic-ing from the costume closet. Haha. Be prepared.

Ohio is EST, right? That means you're 6 hours ahead of Hawaii, so 4PM HST is 10PM EST.

I think you might have to register if you want to participate in the chat during the performances. I'm not positive though because there are always some mogulususer34598 whatever involved in the chat. I'm not sure if they registered or just started typing in the chat box.

Kira

no jus make an account and u should be good to go for later on. Well that is if u want to chat in the chatroom. The only reason for ryan to add you would be if you were going to sing in the open mic. and those numbers are for the people performing.
_________________________________________________
But yeah on another note. Got a busy day today so will be unable to perform, but i'll stop by for the other half of the open mic to see some great talent. To all of you performing, Good Luck and Easy strumming. BTW don't forget your ties. :D :D :D

Hey,

This really sucks...but I'm emailing you from a library right now...because my laptop isn't working. Well, it works, but the battery pack won't work. So my craptop is currently dead. Which figures. Because I was really excited for this.

But I wanted to let you know ahead of time that I can't do the open mic this time. Maybe next time if my computer isn't being a butthole I can participate. I can't wait to watch the recording. SO SORRY!!!! Ugh.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in. I don't know how long it's going to take to encode all the performances, but it should be playing on our mogulus at least by sometime tomorrow.

aldrine is not giving his ukulele away, he is giving away his figurine that he hangs from his ukulele.
