Wherein the webcast is still fucked, but we had a really good band.

Photos are up of The Spores at Pop Roxx on Saturday. Oh man, they were awesome! Do check them out if you have a chance. Their act also included a puppet show. Which, you know, could easily have gone very wrong, but it didn't.

The webcast is still going all "test tone" on us, and I haven't the slightest idea why. It went nuts at just after 1AM yesterday, and just after midnight tonight. At first I thought it might be that LAME (the MP3 encoder) got "upgraded" and broken, but no: turns out it didn't get upgraded at all; we're still running the same binary of it that has been working fine for two years.

I'm pretty much out of ideas at this point, beyond "install a completely different operating system and hope for the best." Though "sell all the computers and just say fuck it" is looking more attractive every day.

    Should that entry not be on a different page? The footer says "April" for your 1st May entry, and it's with a couple of other April entries.

    Sadly, this option tends to be overlooked in this day and age.

    Luddism is highly underrated.

    BTW: RealPlayer really has problems trying to play that MP3 stream, it sounds like a radio that is not tuned in correctly (like brrzzz-brrzz-brzzz over and over again ;) and takes up 100% of CPU while doing this. So that would even more point to the LAME library no?
