Old/Backup Method: Teamspeak Audiochat
Let’s take chat to the next level: audio chat. If you just want to listen in, click over to fakeologist.com… If you want to participate and broadcast yourself to the world, then you need to install Teamspeak.com….
Steps to participate:
Download the teamspeak client for any platform you choose.
Run the program, head over to the bookmarks menu item, and click on the top entry “Bookmarks” and then “Manage Bookmarks”
In the “Add to Bookmarks” window, fill in the yellow highlighted areas below as shown below, changing “your name here” to your fakeologist username.
If your screen now looks like this, you’re all set and you’re in!
You are automatically in the Lobby when you join in. Double click the different chat rooms to enter them. To speak in the LIVE STREAM, you must be authorized by someone with a “O” badge by their name. . If you choose to join the LIVE STREAM, make sure you turn off your stream (at least on the computer you are using).
Please record your chat if you think it’s interesting (Teamspeak has a built in recorder). Send it to me and I’ll level it and post it.
This channel will be silent most of the time, and is only likely to have audio in the evenings (eastern time).
