INSTRUCTIONS
Wednesday, 30th November
12:00 PST / 15:00 EST / 20:00 GMT



The time approaches! On Wednesday this week we're holding our big live webchat here at FXhome.com to discuss our new products, CompositeLab DV and EffectsLab DV. There may also be some other surprise announcements...

The chat starts at 12:00 PST / 15:00 EST / 20:00 GMT, Wednesday 30th, and will run for approximately an hour and a half, depending on popularity. Click here for a countdown clock!

Joining and asking questions

You can start submitting questions already, although we will be giving priority to questions asked by people at the event. If you have something vital to ask, make sure you're there in person!

Click here to join the webchat and submit a question!

• You can submit your question at the bottom of the webchat.
• You can only submit one question at a time. If you submit a new question, it will override your previous one.
• You can use the 'channels' tabs to switch between the regular #fxhome channel and the special #fx-event webchat channel.
• During the webchat itself, only FXhome staff will be able to talk in the #fx-event channel, to make sure that everything remains easy to read.

We hope to see you all there! Make sure you arrive on time so that you don't miss anything!

The whole thing is made up of many many many (probably big) surprise announcements. If you can't make the chat, a transcript will be made available somewhere on FXhome.

What are you using to connect, make sure the port is unblocked or open on your firewall... we need more information than that.

It's a message from the Java IRC client. It's most likely theres a firewall blocking port 6667 outgoing.

If you can't get it to work I'd recommend installing mIRC and connecting on port 8080 instead. You might have more luck with that.

I can't be there, can't wait for the transcript. Someone better ask the CSB question, because I don't want to ask that.

Yeah... I disabled mine... it's got to be the omnipotent university firewall of death. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure the university's firewall is really a wall of fire. It blocks EVARYTHING.

....mrr. Well, to Trillian!
