Yes! That was me, hi!

 

From my *limited* understanding, I'm not even sure if an 'app' is

necessary if we can just have a webpage that people can go to?

 

John seems to have a pretty good grasp on how to do this. John--would

you mind setting up the site? Or perhaps giving me more details on

exactly what we need in terms of process (tech-dummies version for me

ha). I'm downloading nicecast now. It sounds like really all we need

is a router and a computer dedicated to this.

 

For now I'm putting together a silent film series, but I think if we

can figure this out it can really help in many ways.
