2007-10-14: Class of 2.3 Webcasts

The Ride Begins

I first became interested in the Webcast Academy over
a year ago and registered at that time--but I didn't get
involved because just after I registered, I had time
crunches with other commitments. Now, however,
I'm in . . . and looking forward to what I can learn.­

­The first 2.3 webcast was a good experience. First, Jeff and José gave clear
outlines of requirements and expectations; later, there was an opportunity for
both "old hands" and newbies like me to say a few words about themselves.
All of this was valuable. Besides receiving some critical getting-started
information, I had fun. I particularly enjoyed Durff's wit--and wonder whether
I might not also be a candidate for graduation in 2017!

During the next several days, I'll be trying to digest  configuration issues
and making sure I have working copies of the necessary software (for
example, Audio Hijack Pro and Virtual Audio Cable), but I'll also be
preparing an audio introduction, trying to make sense of what to do next,
and reading and reacting to forum posts. This will keep me busy, but as
someone once said, "It will be a good busy."

Font Specs after the First Full Paragraph

Hmmm. Why does everything show up in italics after the first full paragraph? I'd really prefer "regular" (roman) type except where I want ital. I guess I'll have to play around some more with the editor.

Italics Changed

Now that I know how to check the html for my post, I investigated it and noticed a "blockquote" tag for the material after the initial paragraph. After I removed the tag, the entire quote reverted to roman (non-italic) type. I like the look of the entry much better now.
