Then, right after I started my session, everything fell to pieces! The PC couldn't handle rendering my video as it ran out of hard drive space after only 5 minutes of recording. When I tried to show a video from YouTube, the speakers died! I tested all this stuff before the attendees arrived. I was good to go. IDK what happened!
Not to worry, I covered everything I had to cover in my presentation and then some! In fact, I think the presentation was a great success. I just wanted to record it for YouTube and I wanted to jazz up the presentation with some Calculus Filks.
Maybe I'll rerecord it sometime this week (I did, see videos above).
The irony of the situation is that I had my brand new Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2" Droid Tablet with me (instead of my laptop). Given enough time, I could have mirrored the PC Desktop to my Tablet over WiFi controlling everything from my Tablet like a remote SmartBoard and recorded the whole thing right on the Tablet.
However, I did not want to waste the attendees' time with all that, so I skipped all the tech except for my primary focus: teaching Calculus with http://sagecell.sagemath.org
I even sang when the audio went out.
In retrospect, I should have set up the Tablet in the first place.
BTW, I've been attending LIMACON at SUNY Old Westbury since 1988 and presenting since 2010.
