AwesomeCast 38: Now with more Watson
Another great show where we welcome our robot overlords. It was great to catch a little bit of the historic Watson Jeopardy right before the show. It’s also been great to have our new run down system that Chachi is keeping alive that AJ brought in in my absence the week before.
A nice, tight show with the core group after the long winded TNA hat-a-thon that was the week before without me. We really locked down a flow this night, giving me a decent time on the post-production (and some much needed sleep I usually don’t get on Tuesday nights).
While I still want to work Chachi into starting the AwesomeCast edit during WMS, leaving some of the final touch ups and WMS audio posting to an earlier rise Wednesday morning worked out really well.
Another issue has been my recent decrease in my Verizon FIOS package. My main goal was to lower some cost. Cancelling the land line, dropping to the standard package so I can still see my Penguins and Monday RAW. Unfortunate side effect? The bundle drops me from a healthy 25/15 upload/download flow to 15/5. And that 5 is more substantial than I expected. Uploaded the video versions of the show are now a set it. Forget it. Make a sandwich. Make dinner. And done! Ouch. We may be justifying a re-upgrade in the near future…
It’s clear that the G2 isn’t holding up with some motion. Lessons learned. Either way, it seems that his previous series about robot domination was a tremendous precursor to the Watson hoopla that carries over from AwesomeCast
No subtitles! This was a weird week for me. I picked a random Austrailian pop song, and one song solely for the Walker Texas Ranger sample. And somehow, that fits my tastes to a T.
It doesn’t end! Not only did Chachi have the completely dynamite idea to do a time lapse of the ENTIRE 24 hours of play, which shrunk to only 13 minutes at the limit of what Final Cut Pro would do for a Speed Change, but an email came in from City Councilman Bruce Kraus inviting Chachi down for a proclaimation honoring his efforts.
And your mom said video games wouldn’t accomplish anything.
AND that’s not all! While I don’t have the usual tired podcasting aftermath video from last Tuesday night, I do give you…a cat in a box…ready for shipping…
