 19:01:40  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: Hi
 19:01:53  Durff -> EdTechTalk: is that you cath?
 19:02:00  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: I don't get a yugma link in the right hand side for some reason
 19:02:12  Durff -> EdTechTalk: hi mr webcaste wonder
 19:02:48  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: lol
 19:02:55  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: dont get too carried away there Lisa
 19:03:41  CathyE -> EdTechTalk: http://www.yugma.com/app/loading.php?user=&role=0&collsession=121985832
 19:04:15  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i can't, i'm eating
 19:04:40  Durff -> EdTechTalk: doesn;t carry well
 19:04:45  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: what's on the menu tonight Lisa?
 19:05:27  Durff -> EdTechTalk: ww couscous with vegie bouillon and maderin vegied
 19:05:53  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: ooh - nice, except need some beef medallions on the side ;-)
 19:05:54  Durff -> EdTechTalk: vegies
 19:06:06  Durff -> EdTechTalk: ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
 19:06:36  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: nicely seared on both sides so it's still pink on inside :D
 19:06:55  CathyE -> EdTechTalk: http://www.edtechtalk.com/node/1864
 19:07:08  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: you must realise Lisa that Aussies are BIG meativores!!
 19:08:31  Durff -> EdTechTalk: carnivore!
 19:09:17  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i'm listening on the stream, cathy
 19:09:26  Durff -> EdTechTalk: skype not being nice
 19:09:38  CathyE -> EdTechTalk: thanks for the info
 19:09:55  Durff -> EdTechTalk: personality conflict
 19:10:18  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Yeah, I like trainings where I get the software. I think in most my district does they do give it to you.
 19:10:35  Durff -> EdTechTalk: why?
 19:10:43  Durff -> EdTechTalk: software is opensource
 19:10:59  Durff -> EdTechTalk: now if they give you hardsware....
 19:11:11  Durff -> EdTechTalk: that would be soooo nice
 19:11:39  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: true - hardware is more valuable than software these days
 19:11:43  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i have to do faculty training this year
 19:11:48  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Not the stuff I get trained on, but even if it was, like when I do a podcast training, I'm going to give them either flash drives or CD with Audacity/LAME so they don't have to d/l it.
 19:12:09  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: The stuff I get trained on is not always open source. I got Inspiration that way
 19:12:11  Durff -> EdTechTalk: Mojopac
 19:12:29  Durff -> EdTechTalk: will put it on a flashdrive
 19:12:42  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Mojopac will put what on?
 19:12:51  Durff -> EdTechTalk: any app
 19:12:53  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Cathy, I'm not seeing anything in Yugma?
 19:13:03  Durff -> EdTechTalk: like audacity
 19:13:10  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: Alice, whats software are we talking about?
 19:13:12  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i heard SL too
 19:13:21  Durff -> EdTechTalk: though that seems large
 19:13:30  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Yeah, but it's easier if I add it rather than telling them to go to Mojopac
 19:13:39  Durff -> EdTechTalk: yes
 19:13:41  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: Inspiration - can use gliffy.com, freemind (free download), mindmeister.com
 19:13:56  Durff -> EdTechTalk: i like that one too
 19:14:02  Durff -> EdTechTalk: and bubblus
 19:14:16  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Jason, can you add video, and how much graphic control do those have?
 19:14:28  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Becuase NOTHING i've seen online is as good as Inspiration.
 19:14:42  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Mindmeister only has limited free time.
 19:15:07  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: no, I agree, not as good as inspration - wasn't aware inspiration did video insert though, I know you can put audio attached to symbols which is fantastic feature
 19:15:15  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: And it's only advantage is the ability to share, but since it requires emails (which is difficult to manage with elementary) that's not always doable.
 19:16:07  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: I can't see dig it.
 19:16:20  AliceMercer -> EdTechTalk: Yugma session is not up anymore for any of us I think?
 19:16:39  Jason Hando -> EdTechTalk: I can't get Yugma working but no surprise - never works for me
 19:17:33  Durff -> EdTechTalk: hi again
