Tech Needs

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years ago

Below I will try to outline the connectivity and technology I hope to use for each presentation. These are not absolute and are open to discussion!



I will be traveling with my Apple MacBookPro laptop, capable of running Windows XP if needed. Video output is DVI and I carry a DVI to VGA adapter. Often I will use audio output fom the computer, so please arrange a 1/8" miniplug connection to house sound. I prefer a wired connection if at all possible, but can do wireless as well. If I need to use an on site computer, I have a USB thumb drive I can move files to. If there is a need to add my MAC address to a network, let me know in advance and I will email it to whomeever needs it. I'd also like to know of any restrictions/ firewalls that would prevent use of:

  • Second Life-  needs to connect to ports 443/TCP, 12035/UDP, 12036/UDP, and 13000-13050/UDP. You should configure your firewall to allow outbound traffic on those ports, and related inbound traffic.
  • Skype
  • AIM for IM
  • Twitter
  • others?


I will use either my infrared remote for PowerPoint advance ir my Bluetooth mouse for remote control. I like to move among the audience, so if a microphone is used, I prefer a wireless one I can roam with. I also carry my own digital audio recorder (Edirol R-09) so I can publish my own podcasts of sessions. I would need t know if there are any restrictions on this.
