Lisa and I spend part of this evening working on adjusting the SFX to try and get the "buzz" and "bell" effects to be approximately the same volume. The buzzer has heretofore been much louder than the bell, and it's been difficult for Lisa, running the sound board, to keep things balanced.
gridlore and kshandra, I'm sorry that I can't directly use you as panelists, mainly because Programming says that I can have both of the Foglios for the daytime show. However, if you're willing, I'd like to have you available as standby panelists in case anyone on the panel has to be a late scratch. We've had a number of standbys and scratches in the past, and it's always good to be prepared. Heck, on the original show, there was an episode where Johnny Olson had to take seat 3 because Charles Nelson Reilly forgot about Daylight Savings Time and didn't show up in time for taping.
Update, Sunday 1700: I had the running time wrong originally. Also, the start time on Saturday may change.
Update, Sunday 1800: We moved from a 4 PM to a 2:30 PM start in order to better balance out events including the Guests of Honor. (The Foglios are scheduled to be part of a 5 PM event as well, and we were trying to avoid back-to-backing them.)
