    • felix9

      well, stared at the black screen to the very end waiting for a hidden scene after credits but nothing happened ..... good music though.

    • nic

      @felix9: OR DID IT?????? Wink

      @Richard.Hein: Drop by the Channel 9 Live stage and say Hi

    • aL_

      *woot* i'll be there this time as well, spamming questions Wink

      btw a good tip if you're not physically at mix is to add an additional clock in windows and set it to PST, that way you wont miss a thing.

      also, "you're so foreign", i lol:ed


    • Tom

      I would have spelled it Nine'ies

    • nic

      @aL_: That is an EXCELLENT tip. Looking forward to your tweets next week Smiley

    • felix9 should adjust your clock on your server too.

      I remember on PDC10 the web app was still 'waiting' for the keynote to start after it had actually started for half of an hour, people have to dig into the data xml to find out the actuall video url of the keynote. dont do this again.

    • nic

      @felix9: There were a number of "learnings" from PDC10 and we'll be doing our very best not to repeat them for MIX11

      I would've call it the Ch-inys, because of all the facial fuzz (psst Laura you need a shave) Scared

      What Laura doing at the start? mmm is she getting use to wearing "Hostess" uniform for the Limo ride.

    • MODUL8com

      @aL_: I already asked that to the PDC team... they should put a "what is this time in your timezone"-option when they hold conferences and air them.  "They" thaught it was a good idea, but they hadn't the time anymore to include it back then, I'm curious about MIX11 though Smiley

    • Laura10

      @dentaku: Ha- it is definitely NOT a blackberry. It's an old HTC Ozone (Windows device) that I still use on occassion.


    • aL_


      oh and by the way, if you're using the windows 'additional clocks' (or any other clock) make sure you set it to UTC-7 and not UTC-8!

      There is a preset time zone in there called PST, but due to daylight savings the actual time at mix is UTC-7 not PST(UTC-8)


      actually.. strike that, it seems like if you set it to PST(-8) windows is actually applying daylight savings and using PDT(-7) automatically. setting it to utc-7 seems to give you the same time

      i used this page to compare

    • felix9

      actually there are multiple items for UTC-7 and UTC-6 and they are different !

      however the two UTC-8 items both give me the correct PDT as in

    • athman
