1 hr. broadcast = 1.6 Mb disk space = 8 hrs. editing
Real Audio servers can handle live stuff, but only 40 simultaneous users
A "canned show" can handle more simultaneous users
Sound edit 16 -- use this to edit the clips

XStream has video
Some problem with RA 2.0, have to close the window, sometimes the browser if RA1.2 (?) is open -- the files won't play unless its a new window
To do a Live Show: need RA2.0 server, a windows machine, mic, sound card
All we need is a regular tape recorder (unidirectional something something) to get quotes from people (at the next party)
