    Scene 1:

    Poor Dave trips up in a USB cable, and knocks a glass of water over his
    wife's Notebook computer.

    08:10 he is back into it now.

  6. What are the odds of that, frigg'n hilarious!
    Yes, spilled water over the eeePC doing the live feed!
    EPIC FAIL!
    It ran for about 5 minutes with the water and then just died completely.
    Tried to dry it out and get back on air, but it just wouldn't even turn on.
    Remembered I still had my old crusty webcam so dug it out and got on with
    the show on the desktop in the study.

    Hard drive data is ok.

    Great fun!

    Dave.
     
  7. Cubeee the eeePC has risen from the ashes. I'm out of the dog house.

    OK Great Dave,

    I felt it was the one I talked you into from "catch of the day".

    And I knew where to get cheap keyboards, as I got one posted at about
    $18.55AUD from honkers, so I was waiting to see how you got on. But when
    you said there was water on top of the drive, I thought the motherboard
    etc., would be fried.

    It made for an interesting live video blog. :)

    Cheers Don...

  9. Yep, that's the one.
    It did indeed.
    After downloading the recorded footage from Ustream it's pretty obvious the
    eeePC and/or the wireless connection was simply not up to the task. It was
    almost unwatchable, the video would drop out for 10's of seconds at a time.
    The second part which used my desktop directly connected to the net didn't
    drop any visible frames that I could see in 51 minutes of recording, and
    that was using my ancient webcam.

    So it was an interesting trial. More experiments and different hardware
    required before trying again.

    Dave.
