    Have a really big poo before you start.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    21 hours of watching this cunt butcher my language? So long as there's plenty of urban music, you can sign me the fuck up.

    I've not streamed, but this guide seems quite good.

    If you're going to film yourself as well, then have plenty of lights on in the room. Most cameras don't handle low light very well, which means grainy video. Also, get a decent microphone. If people can't hear wwhat you'res saying, it doesn't matter if the stream is good. A good budget headset is the Lifechat 3000 or something by Microsoft.

    Umm, what are you streaming? My advice would be to have some ideas before you start, big livestreams before you (justin.tv for example) have found that it's hard to not be totally boring.

    Dispraxia... Isn't that the condition that (amongst other things) affects speech? Like Bells Palsy. A guy I knew years ago had a brother with it and not only was it an exhausting effort for him to talk but it also made him very difficult to even understand.

    That's kind of admirable that you'd want to try and talk for 21 hours but I'd sure as hell not want to listen!

    I think the most important part is getting people to bother watching any of this. You aren't going to make much from you and your two mates watching it.

    I broadcast myself treading water for 21 hours once. Forgot to turn the webcam off.

    Live streaming what, where, when? As tips go, it might be a good idea to explain things a little.

    Unless you already have a (mildly+) successful Youtube or community, why would anyone want to watch a 21 hour livestream where the aim is to get you money so you can buy a better PC? I don't understand who is going to watch that.

    Maybe I'm missing something here.
    Hell, if it works out, let me know, I'd like a new laptop for free!

    Good luck, I hope your 21 hour livestream is highly successful.

    Tips? Don't get drunk. Use black ball point pens. If you've got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

    How are you going to make money off this? Pay per view, ads or donations?
    I wish your endeavour well btw, I have experience of your condition, and its can be quite debilitating at times.

    24 hours has more meaning to it than 21 hours, just so you know.

    Get bent.

    @zombehgeek999 Yes, that has been established. But Dyspraxia also affects fine motor control and the speech and language centres of the brain. Like I said my friend's brother has it and whenever I saw him it would take 10 minutes to get past the "hello, how are you?" stage.

    So like I say, admirable that you want to talk on a stream for 21 hours, but that's one hell of a car crash in the making.
