Does whatever client you are using to access the site support Flash/Shockwave?

If you're using a regular computer, your web browser may need a plugin. If you're on a Wii, apparently only Flash v7 is supported in the embedded Opera browser, which may be inadequate for the chatroom, although I couldn't find any explicit statement on GagaLive's site about which version of Adobe's Flash player is required other than "latest." Perhaps if enough people complain to Nintendo/Opera/Adobe they may get around to providing better support. I have no idea what might happen if you attempted to install an upgraded flash player on a Wii as I have no access to one (a condition unlikely to change in the near future,) so I certainly wouldn't recommend it without checking Nintendo's support resources first.

Also, keep in mind that I have no official connection with this site, I'm just another user (albeit one with a fair amount of technical knowledge) trying to be helpful.

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

Hey now Mich

Don't find your information tacky at all. Think plenty of folk will be interested, including ME :-). Next time am in the states (will be after February for sure) will look for it for my kids.

My GD book for kids is coming out in February

I'm so excited. My book, Grateful Dead: What a Long Strange Trip it's Been (Enslow Publishers, Inc.) is coming out in Feb. The publishing house has printed two editions--an over priced hardcover at $31.95 and a reasonably affordable paperback edition at $9.95. The paperback looks great (and it's more environmentally-friendly than the hardcover). I just got an advanced copy. What makes my book different is that it is for kids. It tells the history of the GD, what it was like growing up, how they morphed into the Grateful Dead, and why they all shared a passion for music. It's geared to 12-16 year olds. The photos also show a bit of what life was like in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.
The best part was that I got to interview Bob Weir, and I got some great quotes. I also interviewed Dennis McNally, David Gans, and several Deadheads.
It's a short book (just over 100 pages). I hope you will look for it.
I know that self promotion is tacky, but I'm really proud of the book because I want our kids to share our love for the music.
Thanks,
Mich

My music is now listenable for y'all

After way too long working on it my music website is up with two albums for your listening and more to come relatively soon.

Drop in and listen if you are so inclined. There is a forum if you would like to pipe up a suggestion or whatnot-I haven't listened to all the songs since being uploaded so let me

know if you notice any problems.

My Myspace site has also been updated with a new song and all the other songs that were on it have been remixed and should sound a little tighter.
