i remeber a FST radio a while back? i want in again.....someone should host a server on shoutcase source and then get some dj's ie.me to bust out some mofos tunes.....
yeah it was fun while it lasted. does anyone know how to work coolstream or whatever it's called. i think the admin is doing enough for us atm.
Brief History of what happened: Interest was waning towards the end (both listeners & DJs), I wanted to revitalise it but 7th wasn't willing to do any of the technical things planned any time soon (we now know why). I resigned as Station Manager because there's no point kicking a dead horse, and it died soon after.
To get anywhere, Shoutcast Server has to be on a decent server with enough bandwidth to manage listener demand. The server used before was the forum server (which I didn't know until late into my time as Manager) hence the slowdowns during broadcasting.
If it gets back up though, I have a current version of SAM Broadcaster (the software that was recommended) thanks to a friend asking me to download it. Likewise, I'd sign up as a DJ again (but good luck to the person who'll become the eventual RSM because there's no way I'm doing that again).
i'd do a show but i have 256kbps upload and no money. thats why i think using coolstream would be kewl cos then we could host or shift shows on a whim
Sounds good.Has a mod or Admin agreed or will be just a member thing?
by the sounds of it; i could have a show running within 20 minutes.
i'd prefer to get some better hosting software than winamp. 3 things i need before i host a show.
1.media player with "decks" and sampler and all the shit that SAM thing does, i think my bro has one somewhere so thats sorted
2.to work out when rush hour is on here. i think we had about 30 lounge lizards listening once
3.a show plan
I think it's a crackin' idea, if only to laugh at everyone else's silly accents.
Can imagine it would take a lot of work to set up, good luck to who ever takes up the position if it is set in motion.
They can tak' oour lives, but they cannae tak' oour troousers!
