Audacity 2.0.1 has been released Â just in time forÂ my summer holidays.
- Users upgrading to 2.0 versions from 1.3.6 or earlier must download theÂ latest versionÂ of the LAME MP3 encoder.
- The Windows installer for 2.0 versions will replace 1.2.x or any previous 2.0.x installation, but install alongside legacy 1.3.x Beta versions. It is strongly recommended to uninstall previous Beta versions.
- You may see the errorÂ Application configuration incorrectÂ when launching Audacity after installation. This mainly affects some Windows XP or 2000 machines. This can be fixed by downloading and installing the appropriate Microsoft “Redistributable Package” as follows:
Be sure to get the correct package according to whether you have 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. To check, right-click overÂ My ComputerÂ and chooseÂ Properties. If 64-bit is not mentioned, you have 32-bit.
It is a minute past midnightÂ on February 29th 2012 in Dublin, Ireland. The leap day is well on its way elsewhere as the day began in Tonga several hours ago.

Feb29th.net is a global blogging project designed for all age groups and continents.Â It is nowÂ open for posts for today only. It is hoped that “this blog will capture posts from all over our planet on this rare day until midnight in the Western Pacific. The result will not only be a celebration of technology, but a celebration of audience and purpose, who will be the youngest author? Who will be the oldest? Which country will top the most posts? Will there be any marriage proposals?”
I will blog on the Feb29th.net site later on today as many of my teaching friends and colleagues are retiring today.
I just got my belated birthday present today in the form of the XBMC Eden Release Candidate 1. It literally gets better everyday The source code on this media centre is updated on aÂ nightly basis. It even works on Rasberry Pi – check out the video inÂ my Vodpod collection in the left sidebar.
I was shocked to find that the Educational Podcasters web presence http://educationalpodcasters.grouply.comÂ on Grouply.com had ceased to exist without warning today
It was all working perfectly yesterday when IÂ offered my few cents worth onÂ the Berhinger XENYX X1222USB faulty special effects generatorÂ query.
Now nothing is visible or accessible. Apparently, all the postings, images and links seem to be lost for good.Â I was offered was a link to a zipped file of the membership database and that’s it.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who viewed the site. A special thanks to the 51 members who took the trouble toÂ join the groupÂ and my deepest gratitude goes to the 14 regular contibutors who offered interesting shoe string solutions to everyday recording problems in a classroom and educational environment.
It is Back 2 School time again and this is our 7th year taking part in eTwinning . Unfortunately we have the shadow ofÂ a Whole School Evaluation (WSE) hanging over us.This may militate against teachers interested in taking part.
eTwinning is designed to enhance the learning process. The resultant projects areÂ not intended to add to the already overloaded school curriculum.
The projects with which I have been involved served as a motivational force for both the teacher and students alike. The teachers decide on the project between themselves. The project can be as short as a week or as long as a year. The partnership can be between two schools or twenty. Hopefully my school will be involved in eTwinning this coming school year.
