Maritime Noon Phone-in

If you are beside a radio (or a streaming audio player) this afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Atlantic Time, you can tune in to Maritime Noon for the phone-in; I’ll be playing the role of “computer guy.” Apparently, say the producers, “The Internet is long past the novelty phase.” Hmmm.

Streaming? Where? The page says “Due to technical difficulties the Canada Now feed is temporarily unavailable.”

Ironic for a show about the Internet.

Aha! CBC St John has it. And it’s now, not at 1 p.m.

Sounding good Peter…I love that I can listen to you not proffering an opinion on whether file sharing is stealing from all the way out here on Bowen Island, BC.

Okay…how do I get my computer to answer telemarketing calls and redirect them to a 1-900 number? That last call was too cool to be true…

Just in case anyone’s looking for this information, requested by a caller on the show today, a site that offers a for-pay service that shows you how your website will look in various browsers is NetMechanic. I haven’t used or tested the service myself, but it seems to answer the need if it does what it says it does.

We had a good range of questions from a good group of callers this afternoon; it was an interesting hour.

One thing that threw me for a little bit of a loop: Maritime Noon is now broadcast live on television on CBC’s Country Canada network (as opposed to Country Canada, the CBC TV program). As a result, there was a bright television light, and a little video camera with me in the radio studio in Charlottetown. Apparently Country Canada broadcasts not only the Halifax show, but also those in Ontario and Saskatchewan in this way.

The TV broadcast is followed by Northern Exposure, which means that, at the very least, Steven Garrity is watching.
