Default Worlds Party!

Okay, so tomorrow is the World Pipe Band Championships.

I've got my laptop all hooked up to my 50" HDTV via HDMI cable and everything is working perfectly via the BBC website. I'm planning on having a couple of piping buddies over to watch with me. Anyone else doing similar?

BTW, anyone in the NE Ohio area who'd like to come by shoot me an email or a PM and I'll give you the details.

I'll be watching them. I just plan on watching on my computer monitor though. I have to wear headphones too. Wife doesn't like the idea of hearing pipe bands at 4 AM. Piping buddies at 4 AM? I know better than to ask about that.

Unfortunately I'll be traveling to my parents. I'm hoping to get there before the finals start. I will be waking up at 4:00AM to see Oran Mor!! (our PM plays with them)

We'll be getting out of bed at 3:30 a.m. to watch the finals en famille, then heading out to set king crab pots. I'll have to look into hooking the laptop up to the TV - great idea!

It's pretty easy if you have HDMI outs on your laptop and an in on your tv. If not you can use S-video but you need separate cables for the audio.

HDMI is all in one! Nice.

Sounds like fun man, wish I knew of others in my area that were doing this. Got all three cane drone reeds running now, and I have to admit, I love the sound! And the air efficiency? Outstanding!

I was going to do something similar, but our 50" lacks HDMI, s-vid, dvi or vga. So, I will be watching on my 24" HDTV. Working 16 hours today so I doubt 4 am is going to happen...

Setting king crab pots - that must win the prize for most unusual thing anyone is doing during the Worlds. Its chucking it down here so despite being close enough to go in person, I too am Live Streaming! Has the Worlds ever been cancelled due to inclement weather? I wondered this morning how bad it would have to be for the RSPBA to cancel the event - and what would happen then?-rescheduled for another day - or do they have emergency indoor facilities for just the bands to play -or does it go ahead at all costs?
