Write Time 11/9/11


Watch live video from Write Time at 9 on Justin.tv

Well, I almost accidentally canceled last night's broadcast! We were debating about doing it or not, mainly because Rachel has been really burned out this week and we had a dinner arrangement with my parents. The dinner fell through and Rachel felt good, so we kept the broadcast. I'd originally titled yesterday's post 'Write Time Canceled 11/9/11', but when I wrote about everything we were going to talk about, I forgot to change it! Silly me....you'd think after nearly 500 blog posts I would do a goof like that :P And yeah, 500 posts is right around the corner! I'll hit it in the next two weeks, probably.

So anyway, we DID end up doing a broadcast, and here it is. We talked about :

  • How we're bringing back almost all of the Clairefontaine and Rhodia notebooks we'd stopped carrying a couple of months ago
  • Changes (for the better!) to our quantity discounts on all notebooks
  • Noodler's Ahab flex pens will be here in the next two weeks (definite ETA coming soon!)
  • New pictures I've been taking and what kind of videos we're working on in the near future.
Thanks to everyone who joined us live! As always, we had a great time. If you're able to join us, we'll be here again next week on Wednesday, November 16 at 9pm EST!

  1. I haven't had a chance to watch the recording yet. Did you happen to reveal this month's Ink Drop colors?

  2. Are there audio or video downloads available? Justin.tv doesn't work on iDevices.

  3. Does anyone else have problems loading the chat screen on Justin.tv? I have tried Explorer, Firefox, chrome and Safari, plus all the hints I have found on the web, and I am still unable to view, or contribute to the chat during the broadcast.

  4. Not this week....we should have but didn't think of it until the very end of the broadcast! We'll do that next week.

  5. I have the audio recording in a Podcast! Just look up Ink Nouveau on iTunes and you'll see us there :)

  6. I'm really sorry! I've been getting reports of issues with Justin here and there lately, and it kills me because there's really not much I can do on my end. I know that Firefox has been doing a lot of version updates lately, and perhaps sites like Justin are having a hard time keeping up?

  7. No worries Brian, I know it is not your fault. It is just frustrating as I have tried "everything" and it still does not work. I still enjoy watching when I can. Hopefully Justin will sort out the issues on their end soon.

  8. I have that problem with Justin.tv a lot too. Refreshing a number of times usually ends up fixing it.

    Their chat application is Flash-based so browser versions (even completely different browsers) shouldn't cause much of a problem because they are all essentially running the same version of Flash.

  9. Ah, this just kills me! I've used both Ustream and Justintv, the only two live broadcasting tools I really know of, and they are both really buggy. It seems like there's no perfect option, and I'm really sorry for that.
