The Ride Has Definitely Begun . . . .
2007-10-23: The puzzle has a lot more pieces now,
and I'm trying to figure them out. For the telephony
assignment, I'll probably go the Mac route first and
use Nicecast. I've reviewed Lee Baber's Excellent
Mac set-up materials (thanks, Lee) here at the
Academy site, and I also have access to the
Nicecast manual; I'm sure that I'll need both to
make some sense of settings and the like. Other
challenges are making arrangements with the person I'll call, making sure that I'm not Chatty-Kathyish
(typical of me) during the call, and managing as-yet unknown editing issues in Audacity. At this point,
I'm both eager to begin this leg of the journey and hesitant to just take a deep breath and set out on it.
