It would be better if the fans were working though, but the important thing is to ensure that all vents are clear and not obstructed in any way.

90 degrees? That is hot, and in itself could explain the audio issue (although video was not affected). I just hope you weren't actually using it on your lap. Do you have it on a table? Is there anything you can place underneath it at each corner to lift it up slightly and allow air to circulate underneath it?
I have it on a cooling pad, normal temps between 40 and 50 Celsius. The thing is, this whole thing with broadcasting live with Ustream is really eating resources, both cores working constantly at over 90%. I have to think something before I'm in Mumbai; in May it's going to be really hot and humid there. Might be I need to get a better cooling pad and take it with me.

Good thing is, I've noticed, that although temps go high when I start, the laptop cools down to normal pretty fast when I finish. At the moment I think it's going to be OK in Mumbai, too, as long as we keep live streams short, let's say 5 to 10 minutes, and do it mainly from for instance my hotel or café's and such where there's air conditioning.

Honestly geeks, this is fun! Completely new for me, I'm amazed how much I can do with simple tools, basic laptop and webcam. I'm a happy man, having this opportunity to play with my toys!

Just tuned in and watched the live performance in Cloudy California..
Viewing was not an issue...Could only hear Kari.
No Audio on Dinesh and Kavita was the problem for me.
When I expanded the viewing it went real blurry so I hit esc and went back to smaller viewing in black box.

What a pretty couple they are! Kavita is beautiful!
Kari you need a bath and a shave. hehehehe

Going to sauna later tonight, Dennis, but shaving have to wait. One bet to win first...

Have you updated the donation page or is there nothing new to update?
Just curious.

There's nothing to update. Waiting till Friday, then transferring money, Dinesh receives it Tuesday next week as originally planned.

EDIT:

Updated the page now, correcting the date and changing the amounts in INR and GBP due to changed exchange rates. Dinesh got INR 500 for free, for the rate is better now than it was three days ago .
Amount in USD is still the same due to only minor changes in EUR / USD rate.

No probs, Hoppy.

I have to admit I also have decided not to try to boost our collection now with this aftermath of Japanese earthquake and tsunami, having bad feelings about us collecting donations for a wedding when tens of thousands of people are suffering so much that also our members want to donate there, to help people in need, as can clearly be seen in both our Today and Earthquake threads.

I have therefore decided, rather than boost our thing, to personally fill in the missing amount when the wedding finally takes place so Dinesh & Kavita get the announced goal amount in any case even when we could not raise any more.

Kari,
Felt the same way.
Fortunately I was able to support and donate to both.
We are all going through some troubled times but nothing even close to those in Japan.

Donations to Dinesh & Kavita
Just wanted to post that what Kari has told us is true and no way has this been a scam or a rip off to line his own pocket. Having looked over the accounts I can say that Dinesh has indeed received more than the total of donations shown because Kari has covered the cost of the exchange plus...

I am rather excited about it even though I am a Yank. I have already told my significant other that we are going to the wedding and she is as excited as I am. I have also told her that the only thing that could stop us is if we don't get an invitation..............:p
