Test Run

It's been challenging trying to get all the technological systems synced together. I've never been very good at managing tech equiptment of any sort. Believe it or not, I have to call my husband or son in to set things up, if I want to watch a movie via dvd. I know! I know! It's pretty ridiculous huh? Hehe...

However, I do know that as we continue to "practice" a thing, it gets easier and easier to do. So, instead of calling my husband in to rescue me, technologically, I have decided to struggle through it and reward myself, by learning a few new things in the process of the struggle this time around. Sometimes, I just get a bit impatient, and expect that things should move faster. Then again, I have to keep reminding myself that "it is what it is". I am on time in time.

The update on my progress to date? Well, about 4:00 am, today, I scheduled the shows "test run". This pre-show will incorporate all the technology that I have been acquiring, and learning to navigate, for the past week and a half. Also, I've added "Skype" to the equation. If you haven't discovered Skype yet, you must experience it. General accounts at are free, and registering is simple. Go check it out. If you happen to register, you can "search" for me under the skype name: khalifas.innerviews

Anyway, if you should be AWAKE, you may join us LIVE for the "Test Run", Monday January 12, 2009 at 3:00 am. You can access the Pre-Show by calling in to (646) 478-5474, or join us via web at If you are accessing us by web, you'll need to click on "Test Run" (which will show as ON AIR), on the show page, between the hours of 3:00 and 4:00 am.

If you can't make the pre-show, no worries. You can still use the weblink provided above to access the "Test Run" Pre-Show in our archives, after it has aired LIVE. You'll find the show(s) archives listed on the show page as well.

Ok, that about raps it up for now...



  1. Just a brief follow up to this post...The Test Run went pretty well. Darin (my husband) and Naji (my daughter) both called in, which gave me the opportunity to work the console of the Ustream and Blog Talk sites. Both were a lot easier then I expected they would be.

    I made a few errors, but not many at all. Met a new sister with a show, Khadija19, who visited my chatroom and offered a few suggestions.

    I have concluded that my first LIVE show will take place on February 1, 2009. In the meantime, I will continue navigating the systems and becoming more familiar.
