Update 1:30 p.m. – Test over. Everything seemed to work well. See you Tuesday.
Just testing out the new version of Cover-It-Live software in preparation for Tuesday’s Live Event. The event will be turned live in the morning (probably around 9 a.m. E.S.T.) and remain open until well after midnight until the West Coast returns come in.
This new version (available only to special people – heh) requires you to log in if you want to comment, but the comments will not be moderated (users still can be blocked, so trolls need not apply).
You can log in using pre-existing accounts, OpenID (Google, Blogger, etc.), Facebook, Twitter, or MySpaceID (if you are not too embarrassed to admit you still have a MySpace account). If you are able to post a comment on this blog, you should be able to comment on the Live Event.
PLEASE let me know if you experience any problems with logging in by leaving a Comment to this blog post.
You do not need to log in to read the feed.
I’ve also included some Twitter feeds of people I follow who seem to be awake as of 11 a.m. E.S.T. If you want your Twitter feed included in the Live Event on Tuesday, leave a comment or e-mail or Direct Message me (there is a limit to how many feeds can be included). I’m looking particularly for people who can keep track of races and events around the country for other readers to see, as opposed to the usual Twitter bitchin’ and moanin’.
Feel free to comment, watch, whatever. Remember, this is just a test.
