LiveBlogging the Democratic Debate

posted by on January 31 at 17:30 PM

Hello. Schmader and I (and two bottles of wine) are here preparing to watch Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in their first one-on-one debate. As always, send us your comments through the liveblogging widget. This time you’ll have to impress Schmader with your insights and wit—a much higher bar than impressing me, to be sure. If he decides they’re worthy, he’ll drop them into the liveblog in progress.

What is a link to watch the telecast online?

Is it on MSNBC?

It's on CNN.

You can click to toggle sound on, but then you miss the frosty looks.

Can't you run this fucking liveblog plug-in behind a jump? It sucks hella CPU on initiation, and I just want to read the rest of the page.

On second glance, it sucks a fair amount of CPU for the duration of its instantiation. 100% at startup, 30-50% while running.

So when are we all marrying Sara?

The 14th?

Eli... the slurry of polls towards the end totally fucked my browser.

I loved it when Sara said "It's so crazy, it just might work!"

Posted by itsreigningcatsandpoodles | January 31, 2008 8:16 PM

The polls fucked my browser too.

Firefox has nooooo problem.

Sara for president, Firefox for VP!

Thanks Eli and Schmader. That was a great read even after the debate was long over.

I just wanna say thanks. Good stuff.

I have to admit it- I'm a slut. I'm in love with the whole internet.

Posted by Sara | January 31, 2008 11:19 PM

and it, apparently, is in love with you. Or at least this corner of it is.

Thanks for running this Eli and David...I had to miss the debate due to a meeting, Was great to read all the in-time commentary.

I was using Firefox.

Posted by Mike of Renton | February 1, 2008 12:34 AM

Firefox here too, it crashed Firefox, every time. I didn't want to read the live blog, but it basically blocked me from reading slog the whole time it was on. Do you have any idea how FU'd it has to be to crash Firefox?

Nasty little tool you ran there, find a better one.

Posted by Daniel | February 1, 2008 6:54 AM

Couldn't even pull up slog with that thing running, last night. Crashed MS InternetExploiter. Repeatedly.

I've reported you to Redmond. Expect a call.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | February 1, 2008 8:50 AM

Big Sven, I was using Firefox too. If you're not doing anything else on your computer while the Live Blog is active, you might not notice a problem, but multi-taskers suffer big time from the CPU glut.
