Hi, everyone. Just a quick update to let everyone know that we will no longer be broadcasting the live episodes via Ustream.TV. On the whole, the video is not terribly interesting and it causes problems when either Richard or I have to broadcast in low-bandwidth situations. In place of the video stream, we will have a live audio stream. In order to access the live audio stream, you will need to point your streaming media player (e.g. Rhythmbox, VLC, iTunes, etc.) at https://stream.lhspodcast.info:8008/lhslive. This link can also be found in the right column of the Web site under the Streaming Audio header.
We will still maintain a live chat room as well. In order to access it, you will need to use an IRC client (e.g. irssi, X-Chat, Colloquy, etc.) and connect to irc.freenode.net on port 6667 (the default). Once there, connect to the channel #lhspodcast. Note that this channel is active all the time and there are several LHS listeners who are always handy to ask questions of or to simply chat with. The live audio stream will start working approximately 30 minutes before each live broadcast. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send them our way.
