    Live broadcast!

    So, I've been working on putting together what I need to do live broadcasts using my nice Canon Vixia HF M50 ... I could use my iPhone, sure -- but wanted the better video :smile:

    I'm waiting to hear back from Tesla corporate communications on whether I can live broadcast / record the delivery (since a Tesla employee would be on camera for everything he said). If I can't do that, what I'll attempt to do is record the arrival of the car and whatever else happens up until the point the Tesla individual arrives (it'll be separate -- hooray for no sales license in Mass. yet), and then do additional live broadcasts throughout the coming weeks where I do Q&A with anyone and everyone.

    I'll be using Livestream for everything. You'll probably want to follow me and just check into the site ahead of time. My Livestream account: Ben Goodwin on Livestream.

    My car is scheduled to be here Thursday or Friday. No idea which day or what time, so timing will be tricky. I'll post information as I get it.

    I'll tune in if I'm not stuck in some crummy meeting. Best of luck to you!

    I got their Livestream Broadcaster device. Includes 3 free months of their pro service, too. Figured it'd give me what I need to do the broadcast and if I really hate it, I can return it. Was thinking of getting an external encoder so I wasn't tied to Livestream but the idea of a portable device on top of the camera instead of dealing with a computer, software, etc. was intriguing ...

    I had bought the Cube 4 weeks before the Broadcaster came out... It's a great deal... I might buy it and try and sell the Cube.

    Cinergi, NASA uses less technology to monitor rocket launches :) about as excessive as expected though.
    How long before the move to the new garage in South Boston? Did you have a 14-50 installed already?
    If you find you need a charge, my 75A J-1772 OpenEVSE is done (not connected to the 100A breaker yet, but that's only a few hours to finish, I have the pipe, wire and breaker already). If you bought the dual chargers and need to test, I'm only in Randolph (15 miles South of Boston)

    I close 11/1 so moving that weekend hopefully. I'll have a 6-50 installed in prep for an HPC some day. I have two months of overlap between the new place and my current place so I'll be good for charging in case the 6-50 doesn't get installed by then. Thanks tho!

    Delivery is tomorrow. I don't have a time yet. I'll broadcast the arrival and post-delivery stuff for now. More really exciting news to come!

    I'm going to be in a basement most of the day. Hopefully I can slip away to watch.

    I just told my wife, or should I say my Tesla widow, the following: "You think I'm crazy, there is a guy up in Boston live-streaming his Model S delivery!". Her immediate deadpan response: "And there is another guy in Pittsburgh *watching* the livestream of the guy with the Boston Model S delivery."

    Spot. On.

    Your wife is smart. Tesla is not an obsession with us....it's a passion. ;)

    The truck has just arrived.
