How about you get a set list prepared?


The problem with your suggestion, Scott, is; I have been mute and paralyzed since 2001. Id love to!


Don, by broadcast, I meant can you send your SJ output from a lappy, to the Chromecast on the HDMI port on the TV - that is, do you have a way to get reliable wifi at both the lappy location as well as at the TV? Chromecast is a way to do it, but a long HDMI works as well. Monoprice.com is a good place to get long HDMI cables for cheap, between 1 and 3 $ per foot. http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10240

The big question is: How many people are you putting out of work by doing this?


cry cry


As far as getting people to the activity room,,,,, do it on a regular basis and the word gets around.

Scott,

Just got a Skype call from Josie C (I think she's in IT) and she talked my gopher (go for) Shelly, through testing for the "hot spot" WIFI signal. I firmly believe our AC ducting is sinking (sucking} the signal. We have now, 3 laptops to inspect for HDMI ports. Shelly and Jill are bringing their lappys tomorrow. As I've said; this seems to be "falling together." Let's hope it continues this way. Once we determine the "hot spot" and measure the length of cable needed, Josie will send it to us. We have access to a 50' loaner cable for testing. Actually, I think my personal WIFI signal is stronger than Corporate's, we'll see.

I'll have Josie reference your message.

Thanks.

Don

Danny, a very rough guesstimate: 100', do I smell your mind working again? Quit, you're setting off the sprinkling system! Hadta grab an umbrella from an octogenarian chick!

Seriously, with you AND Josie helping, it's just gotta work! It's nice to be back on the "bleeding edge" of technology again.

I can get a more accurate estimate by driving down the route and counting the 4' panels.

Just nod your head to signal the start of the wheelchair race. This septuagenarian chick is taunting me.

UPDATE

In a final, last-minute check before Josie C's show tomorrow, I did a test and everything works, and exactly as intended! Very strong WIFI signal!

@Josie, this may rank you up there with Orville, Wilbur, and Edison. At least as far as Street Jelly is concerned. I don't believe it's ever been done before - interactive entertainment where the audience can request songs in real time and have a dialogue with the performers. Wow, girl!

Yes, Scott, everything seems to be "GO" for the launch tomorrow (Saturday) at 1:00 Central time. Would love to see and hear you play. Our WIFI signal proved to be quite strong. Different lappys had hugely varying sensitivity. I had experienced that on my Dynavox, the new one being far more sensitive.

See you on Jelly, Scott. You'll be in some awesome, very talented company.

Rharv, the lappy does (affirmative) have an HDMI port so we should be squattin' in your basic cotton.


I hope the cotton remains dry.
HDMI sure is handy, that's why they charge so much for the cables.
