Pinder's Livestream Thread!
Hey guys i'm pinder, from melb vic, was a protoss broodwar player turned to protoss Sc2 player about 3 weeks into the beta. I was consistently in and out of the top 50 overall platinum rankings for the US server in the last 2 beta ladder 'seasons'. Holding about 2k rating before the latest reset, and placed second in the first transtasman championship.
Update: Since that blurb is so outdated (It was made back in beta when platinum was actually the highest league and diamond didnt exist! :O), as of 25/10/10 I currently play for the team http://www.archaic-esports.com and at the moment im laddering on US and sitting around 2k rating in diamond.
Basically ill just be playing custom/ladder games and every now and then, answering questions/abuse you guys have for me afterwards in the livestream chat. I also might commentate old replays people request (Send me your good replays to commentate!) and also do live analysis (As im playing!) of the games i play to make it a bit more interesting and for you all to hear my confused rage if i lose:

dono, for now ill just try to get everything goin more or less as standard as can be. stream will be live in about 5 minutes from this msg going thru btw, let me know in stream chat if theres any issues such as lag/sound etc.
Should be good, will you have music going and can we make requests, or will you commentate?

Okay just finished my first little session of streaming, i think i had 5 or so viewers which is great (considering the only place i posted it was an aussie community board for a game in beta at 12 mid-day on a work day ;P). Let me know what, if anything, you'd like to see on the stream... Analysis day-9 style, Live analysis (me talking about what my thought process is while playing), generally Q&A, just straight up playing games, etc etc.
I'll be back on again at some point this evening so give me something to work with if you're interested in tuning in =]

I messed around with it before the last cast and got it as best i could before it started to lag :(.
Higher vid quality would be awesome if it doesn't tax your computer/internet too much ;D

I don't really mind the quality much, but if you did live analysis that would be brilliant tbh. I really enjoy seeing someone's thoughts as they play rather than from a omnipresent replay perspective.

Uploaded about 4 hours worth of me laddering after the reset (starting at my first placement match all the way thru to when i stopped for the night at 15 wins 2 losses). Would be a good thing to watch for protoss players struggling atm as the only 2 games i lost were from positions where i was ahead and made a mistake, so give them a view :).
Not sure why but livestream split them into 4 parts (even tho they were all played back to back with the occasional 3 or so 5-10min breaks for cigi + toilet, but obv you can skip past that with the vod =]):
