It be Saturday today. Had lifeguarding, was rather boring… 4 people in the pool the first session, 5 the second. Haven’t done any work on TTDAlter yet, might do that soon. Would be good to get 4.3 out. I did however have a 52-minute long radio show earlier today, which was an… interesting… experience (especially as I’m on a 56K modem). Credits to icecast for being so good, and Ogg Vorbis for still sounding reasonable at low bitrates! I have 6.3MB Ogg of the event if anyone really wants it, but it’s not that interesting. The most interesting bit is probably the bit at the end I made Microsoft Sam say. The thing works best if you were in #tycoon at the time. I had 8 listeners at one point! I also had a friend of mine in the Netherlands take The Superstation Orkney‘s 64kbps WMA stream and re-encode it into ~24kbps Ogg Vorbis on my icecast server (powered by Zernebok, of course). It actually worked quite well, and people in such far-fetched places as the United States of America, the Netherlands and Germany experienced a lower-quality version of the current Orkney radio scene (for another couple of days at least, until their license runs out… a shame really, I’ll miss them when they’re gone. Hopefully they’ll come back in early 2005 – of course, I’ll be leaving Orkney in mid-2005. But anyway).
I also found it interesting last night when I discovered that the YES Conference I was at on Tuesday was broadcast live on the Internet. It’s now up there for a month or so for everyone to view… fun stuff, indeed.
And as for certain other matters (Mr Lamont, Mr Harcus)… well, only Zernebok really knows. Zernebok knows a lot. He’s clever, is old Zernebok.
I like the word Zernebok.
I’ll be back!
