It’s Geek Gather night at the Chatterbox in Saint Paul. Tomorrow Tuesday, 11/10/2009 at 6.30 pm. Look for those who are looking for you.
In an effort to get the dates for the monthly Gather back on track, I propose the next GG be held on 10/13/2009 at Wilde Roast in NE MPLS. 6.30 pm or after. Look for those who are looking for you.
It appears that second Tuesday can be virtually any Tuesday of the month—at least when looking at this summer’s Geek Gather schedule. So in this tradition—and in the hope to soon return to the actual second Tuesday of the month, this month’s meeting can be attended at the home of the infamous strawberry lemonade (Chatterbox) in Saint Paul this Tuesday, 9/15 at 6.30PM.
Just a heads up: We’ll meet on 7/14 at the Chatterbox in Saint Paul. 6.30PM or whenever you can make it. Directions.
STEP 1: KEYNOTE
Create Keynote presentation @ 1280 x 720 resolution (this is the largest HD resolution AppleTV will play natively via iTunes sync)
Playback Uses: Manual Advance (will respect timing you specified for each slide and transition)
Enter full screen mode when opened: Yes
Formats: Full Quality, Large (you can check the custom settings, make sure movie exports at 24 frames per second!)
Audio: your call
Include transparency (watch for notification)
Video Compressor: H.264
Video Size: 1280 x 720
Frames per second: 24
STEP 2: QUICKTIME PRO
Open in QuickTime Pro (yes, QuickTime Pro)
View: Loop: Yes (set this tag to Yes or on! I believe this only works while the movie is playing)
STEP 3: iTUNES
Import file to iTunes
Sync file with or onto AppleTV
STEP 4: APPLE TV
Play looped Keynote presentation on AppleTV
QuickTime will actually retain slide information as chapters and allow you to jump between slides. Please note, AppleTV does not have this capability.
Please note that the April GeekGather has been pushed back 1 week to 4/21. We’ll meet at the usual watering hole in Saint Paul. Remember, strawberry lemonade season is just around the corner—wait, it never really went out of season, did it?
See you there after 6.30 PM or so.
Due to some scheduling conflicts I am proposing to move the GeekGather to 4/21/09 at the Chatterbox in Saint Paul. Please respond in the comments or via Twitter. I hope this works for all of you and look forward to hanging out.
It appeared that most of you enjoyed the new venue at Wilde Roast in MPLS last month. Should we schedule the February GG (the Parlor room needs to be reserved), or do we alternate between Wilde Roast and the Chatterbox in Saint Paul?
The new year starts with a new venue for a change. We’ll meet at the Wilde Roast Cafe in NE Minneapolis, on Tuesday 1/13/08 at 6.30 PM. Click here for directions.
We’ll be in the Parlor room. We’ll see you there.
