Talkcast 7pm PT, 10pm ET: Outage Edition!

Kelly Guimont , @verso

All-new dial-in experience! See below -- do not call into Talkshoe, we won't be there. Be sure to set up Fuze Meeting before the show if you want to join in live.

It's Sunday, and it's time for the TUAW talkcast! Hopefully we haven't lost too many listeners to the heat.

Hopefully we'll have a lovely batch of developers with us since the developer portal is still down. This usually means developers end up resorting to things like socializing to fill their time, so who knows who you might have on the show this evening! We also have Logic Pro to discuss, and there's an excellent chance we'll do a bit of speculating on the aforementioned outage. We'll be sure to discuss the other news of the week as well, so please join us!

Reminder on new-style talkcasting: With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're using a new system to record the show. This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.

You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience, but browser-only will work fine. Just click the phone icon to join the audio once you're in.

Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 775-996-3562 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.

While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show will appear in this very post at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.

Your patience and forbearance with our new tech is appreciated in advance. For the time being, the podcast feed of the show will continue to originate from Talkshoe and should be there within 24-36 hours. See you tonight!

Kelly is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter in the back of her head. While lining Jobs & Wozniak’s pockets buying up every conceivable piece of Apple-branded paraphernalia, Kelly became a passionate Macintosh support and IT professional.

After a hard day of saving the world and collecting non-winning aluminum foil yogurt lids, Kelly appears on various podcasts and shoots her mouth off in 140 characters or less. She is one of the regular hosts of the TUAW Talkcast, appearing live from her House of Crackpot theories.  If you are lucky, you can catch the TUAWTF Aftershow where callers discuss a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to, what they are wearing, who they are wearing it with and why Hunt the Wumpus was never ported to the Apple II systems.
