Slideshare provide no way to move an audio file without losing all the timings, nor do they respond to questions or feedback on this matter. As such you'll want to listen to the audio at http://users.on.net/~perltraining/hiveminder.mp3 while you page through the slides yourself.

I'm not uploading any more presentations to SlideShare. Check out http://www.youtube.com/user/pjfenwick for all my other presentations, which *do* have their audio in sync.

  • Also - wow, 2 years old? As far as I can tell the only out of date bit is that there are lots of IM interfaces now, not just AIM. And maybe the feedback responsiveness is slightly lessened. :)

  • Wow, that's so great. Hiveminder should put it in their FAQ, quite frankly.

    My curious workmates have noticed me using Hiveminder at work, and so we're going to start using a Hiveminder group for work-related tasks. :)

  • HiveMinder is a free service, so there aren't any hivecredits (or honey). I do think I've picked up some brownie points, though.<br /><br/>
