Waiting for Regents Streaming Video

As of 8:30 am this morning and beyond, the live-stream of the Regents meeting seems not to be working.  Presumably, eventually it will and their (one year) preservation will allow us to make the audio available indefinitely (beyond one year).  The problem is a reminder, however, of the frailties of technology and its use in higher ed.

UPDATE: The student regent who took a pro-Israel stance was endorsed by the regents with only the current student regent (known for an anti-Israel stance) opposed, according to the Daily Bruin:  The Regents' streaming video was never accessible to yours truly, however, despite repeated attempts to connect.  As of 12:30 pm, the following notice was on the Regents' website:

Due to technical difficulties, the live webcast for the meeting has been delayed. We are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. Please check back.

Further UPDATE: The same notice was still there at 3 pm this afternoon.  

Still further UPDATE: The notice was still there at 5 pm this afternoon.  Will the problem be fixed by tomorrow.  Who knows?
