Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

Currently, we are experiencing some DNS problems. We hope to fix this as soon as possible.

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

It's in line with sports matches having fake crowd sounds during lockdown.

Nodam Wettos decision was towards offering impression of people being together
NOT to reinforce people feeling isolated.

Similar JmJ would say Fellini giving an impression of sea not the sea itself.

According to spectrum it is "fake" (24/)48 - as the whole production. Nothing above 22k, in some of the tracks almost just dither noise above 18k. Not that it has much importance with this dadwater "sound" but audible too.

Having seen a couple of VR recordings of the concert I must sadly conclude that the concert must have suffered from audio/video sync issues. In the YouTube broadcast the countdown reached 0 exactly at the first beat of Stardust chorus, however on VR the video was delayed by ≈3 seconds (kind of ruining the effect and the most important moment of the show). 21st century is surely disappointing with regards to tech...

And will be even more so as time goes. Our technologies reached the complexity where human mistakes costs more and more.

Regarding his post
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6258&p=206784#p206784
I noticed in the chat a lot of Alphastein fans which are probably young people. Good to attract a young crowd, but boy, were they annoying

I saw there were 44K viewers on the Jean-Michel Jarre youtube stream, I was on the Paris youtube stream myself, which was the same stream. That attracted more than 5000 people but had a lot less Alphastein fans.

From JMJ's perspective, this gig ultimately seems to have gone well and certainly far better than the Alone Together one did.

Wish there was a version without the audience noises, though. :\
(For a VR concert like this, fake audience noises are somewhat understandable but they really could have been done a lot better)

But now it's all been done so there we go... and at least there's still 10-10-10 to fall back to. ;)

No, I don't think that's the cause. The quality of software engineering has been dropping for the past decade or so. Everything is rushed now (aka "agile") and nobody pays attention to QA.

I fully agree with that.
That whole Agile fad is the main reason I often aspire a job in a bicycle repair shop or a bakery.
:q!

The "agile" "development" and missing QA... are exactly those human mistakes and idiotic degeneration what I think of. And all of this will have much worse consequences eventually than a bad VR "live" "show".
