(I've tried patience)

In London, I never know what I'd be at

I appear to have made it back to my little flat. This is a good thing. Tonight I'm going to see Wicked with my mother and probably have to cope with a deal of comedy negotiation afterwards, but other than that the ordeal of Going Home has been dealt with. And there was cake. So I'm probably all right.

Debating B-Movie tomorrow, not sure. Not sure. I'd like to, really. Who's going?

  • Current Music
    'Red Clouds', I, Synthesist.

[geek help]?

So, okay. clockworkwasp lent me her shiny headset-with-microphone for the purposes of talking through gtalk, and I can't make the microphone work, either across the ocean or indeed with the sound recorder. Before I go and buy another headset, could there be more than the obvious reason (i.e. the thing is broken) why it's not working?

I have : tried plugging it into both the microphone jack in my speakers and the microphone jack in the back of my PC. Tried every possible option in the Control Panel for 'Sound Recording' and essentially fiddled with every setting that had a microphone icon near it. Restarted. Made sure no part of the system volume is muted or down very low.

I am at a loss. Any clues before I go and spend money?

Edit : fixed, somehow. Thank you. <3
