Old thread is kill, this is the new Radio Ernstiwan thread. I'm starting right away with the 1905 show, going live RIGHT NOW (with pre-music)

Share your musical taste and your seductive voice (no homo) with your fellow Ernsts, and help making this chan not only enojoyable for the eyes and mind, but also for the ears. As always, there are no restrictions whatsoever in what to stream. Just share what you like, every streamer has his own ideas and style, and it only makes the radio more interesting.

The radio is available here: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000/

Connection data for the public stream: see pic 3. See also the beautifully crafted pic 4 and the infos on the radio page itself for additional details. Don't hesitate to ask if there's anything on your mind, there are lots of people around who have working streaming setups running and will be glad to help you out. You can see at the top of EC (below the banner) if a stream is on.

Happy listening/streaming!

Loved it, ernst, and learned a lot, too. Definitely not a train wreck. Your delivery style actually reminds me of university lectures.

Only complaint was that it was short. Would have liked to have gone into more depth and detail about things. I think it would have been a good idea to have a less knowledge-able co-host who could ask questions and bring out more discussion. I guess that would almost make it an interview show, but I think there's promise there for regular radio shows where different Ernsts can pontificate on their area of expertise under the prodding of a discussion partner.

Thank you for listening Ernst, it was fun doing but I think I had problems with how I wanted to present it. I originally started by writing down a sort of bullet points thing with some text, but it was too dense and it had too many things I thought I should just cut. Plus, it really hurt my heda just talking without any direct input or being able to gauge how I was doing :DD A lot of things were going through my heda which probably added to a disjointed feeling.

This is probably a good idea, I think it would work. If anyone wants to volunteer for a future episode let me know

It makes me really happy that I didn't butcher the щ sound :DD

I'll get a better microphone by the next I host one - I am using a pretty bad headset.

I didn't realise that basically everything about the revolution of 1905 itself is told, so, I guess, complaint about being short may apply.
But for an introductory episode this seems to be nice, as people liked it.

Oh crap I missed it because played serious sam 2 with bf sorry ;__;

IMO it would be great for hosts (or maybe it could be done by transmitter) to post records of transmissions, so people who missed it could listen to it.
Or maybe even cooler - Radio Ernst could create some kind of podcast or so where latest transmissions would be served. I don't know if it is difficult though.
No. 42593
It'd be nice. You can turn on Audacity on record while transmitting and then post it in thread probably.

Thanks for the stream, I've really grown to like Elvis. Earlier, when I didn't know much about him, I thought he was kind of a meme artist, who is largely famous for his looks and his tons of female fans, much like an early Justin Timberlake or Robbie Williams. But any time I hear his songs now, I can see that he clearly was a gifted artist, and considering that most of his career happened as early as the late fifties and the sixties, it only makes his contribution to music even more noteworthy.

You're welcome, I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yeah, behind all the hype surrounding his iconic image, he was an incredible singer and performer. I first heard his music when I was about 8 or so, and remember becoming obsessed with it even then. Specifically, I loved the song "Trouble":

Elvis Presley - Trouble

As for my current obsession, I have Altbernd to thank for that, since he dropped a track or two in a stream a while back. Since then, I've been revisiting Elvis' entire catalouge-which is huge. I think my last 3 radio streams have been Elvis, and I'll definitely be streaming more of him in the future.

I kind of wonder at what point did show business become so sick and depraved and all about the money. I do count Elvis as being in the early stages of that though.

I continued working on the new rating module today. For those who don't know: The old external rating module provider pulled a happy merchant and wanted to take our hard earned workers money. In true socialist fashion we immediatly seized production tools and started to implement our own solution!

What you can already do there: Rate albums, view rating details (the single votes) for an album, there's an IP-based check for duplicate votes (yes, the IP is stored with the vote, reminder that socialism also means total surveillance), and the existing data from the old external service has been migrated. The pages still look a little empty, I will put at least some lipstick on the GUI in the next days. Also there is not yet a front end for creating new albums, at the moment I have to do this via SQL. I will probably create this and put it behind a htaccess or something, but I'm a little unsure about how to manage the access rights, so we'll see.

No. 43394
If you are going to implement your own rating system can I make a suggestion?

Instead of having 1 to 10 have it be relative to some other album or track. Say you like Black Sabbath better then Iron Maiden. Then Black Sabbath will have a higher rating. But then you like Judas Priest better then Iron Maiden but you don't think it is better then Black Sabbath. The it will have a lower rating then Black Sabbath but higher then Iron Maiden.

It is probably a bit more difficult to implement though but you avoid things like 10. Because what does 10 mean?. Also iirc the rating system is called something but I can't remember what.

More news: Since there were worries about storing IP adresses, the new favourite for the rating system implementation will be not storing the IP, but instead creating a time limit for the ratings. The idea behind the current rating system was that people should cast their votes only when they actually listened to the album, and now we could design the system in that way. I can just add a timestamp to every new album and only allow votes that are casted for example up to 1 hour after the creation. This way no client data will be stored, and the protection against abuse will most likely be even better (though it can always happen) because at least no one can post hundreds of troll ratings overnight.

I kinda like that idea for a minigame. Not sure how to implement it yet, but I think it's possible to have a "competition" between bands, much like a playoff. I'll keep that in mind - though I can't promise when I'll start working on it, because obviously there's still work to do on the rating system!

I finished an updated version of the rating page: The IP logging has been completely taken out, instead we agreed on a time limit in which rating for a new album is possible, which is 60 minutes for now. This is as far as I know the solution closest to the original idea of the album stream, where votes should be cast immediatly following the impression of hearing the album. There's also a page for creating new albums (in a protected directory), which will add a creation timestamp in the database, to which any rating for that album is compared.

While I was at it, I also changed the Apache Log format to not log client IPs, so if, for example, a sexy capitalist spy would try to seduce me and extract the IP adresses of our faithful listeners I leave my door open every night for that, just in case it would be futile.

>Why not store a cryptographic hash of the IP to avoid storing the IP
Two reasons: The database (where the IP would have been stored) is only accessible from localhost, so any privacy discussion about IPs implies that the system has already been compromised. If it has been compromised, any key used for crypto is also compromised, so it would not really fix the problem. That is at least my non-security-expert-understanding of the situation. Also: I'd have to implement it, and implementing stuff is time-consuming, so I prefer to implement new or better functionality and try to keep the overhead as low as possible.

In case you meant a normal hash function instead of certificate-based encryption: In case of IP adresses, those can be forced because the possible inputs are few (at least few for computers). Also any salts used to obscure the inputs would also be compromised if the host system is compromised. Again, this is only my small brain-understanding of these topics. Since I'm obviously no expert on security issues, I'd like to avoid that topic altogether and not store sensitive data, so no one will have to worry about me screwing up the protection measures.

Since yesterday night Radio Ernstiwan has its own discord. Not sure for what we'll use it. For now it could help us having someone call in to a show via cell phone. Maybe somewhen we can replace Skype as the call-in tool of choice. Maybe we will also use it for our steam gaming group. The creation was kind of spontaneus yesterday, so we didn't really think it through. For now it's basically a circlejerk, but we already have the best emojis

I just cannot find a word if any for that exact kind of operatic or symphonic piece as for example
I'm not a music nerd so this lessens my chances even moreso. It's typically used for the introduction to villains or some type of dark forces theme which at the absolute lightest end of the spectrum sounds kind of like this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8qp992Dssk&list=RDBG42F-5AVOE&index=5 which, in and of itself, I am not sure I would even categorize samely with what I am talking about. I would not particularly categorize this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDwl-31afEc because the emphasis is far more on the symphonic part, than as a kind of wall of noise to the chanting or operatic singing. This kinda sounds like what I mean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHvG8V5dmo4 but the specific pieces from DoW, Nine Gates, and Dracula are what I'm really talking about.

I'd almost consider it a subcategory of something much broader and no I cannot find much of anything when looking at Jeremy Soule or Wojciech Kilar, who is not to be confused with the equally famous P-O-L-I-S-H composer Kirill Pokrovsky who, as you all know, are a nation of musical geniuses among many other internationally famous notable things.

As a method of commitment to my new schedule, I would like to start streaming at around 6 AM my time (00:00 UTC), for the benefit of our oceanic and american posters.
Afaik 6 AM my time is around 10 AM in australia, and late evening in the US.

If there's interest, I'll make sure to work on a more structured music catalog, and not just "whatever I thought was interesting from recent stuff I heard". Or we could make 00:00+ UTC the US/Oceanic/Asian streaming time, so everyone in the non-European timezones can participate.

I am preparing for bed, and I want to get up at 5 AM and host a stream.
That would be -01:00 UTC. As in, 1 hour earlier than 00:00 UTC.

I do not have a robust playlist yet, so I'll stream something off my album collection. I four categories of music on offer.
Melancholic melodic death metal.
European power metal with high pitched vocals.
Egor Letov.
Just no bullshit stoner metal.

I'll pick randomly if no preference. Hopefully this is not too late of an announcement because if so, I will listen to it alone like a sad person.

Looks like the votes are split, so I did the only fair thing, and rolled some dice to decide the outcome. Since I usually stream two albums at once, I decided to mix it up and pick two categories.
As promised, on today's menu we have a no-bullshit stoner metal album:
Rifflord - Mean and Heavy

and a melancholic melodic death metal album:
Be'Lakor - Of Breath and Bone.

A german ernst wanted more metal on the radio, so today we have a lot of metal indeed.

I've also been thinking of doing a kind of 'Wargame Talks' where I stream a wargame and talk about related subjects with people. It's one thing I like about when I watch a Matrix stream.

For the postponed alternative album stream there will be an alternative alternative album stream at 10:00GMT / 12:00CET. In true socialist fashion, the winner was decided without any traces of democratic influence and it will be "Theli" from the swedish band Therion. This seamlessly continues the theme from tonight about cringey melodic (in this case: symphonic) metal bands which you only can like ironically in public because otherwise everybody would laugh at you, but in reality they are unironically one of my favourite bands.

If I am not busy losing computer games then there will be a pre-stream with even more cringey stuff.

On September 3rd Radio Ernstiwan will turn one year old! To celebrate the occasion we thought about a streaming marathon on the following Sunday (September 6th). We considered hour slots which all streamers can "book" in advance, and then we stream until our ears bleed and/or we get bored. Of course people can have multiple slots, either distributed or in a row, depending on what they need for their stream. I'd make a schedule and then we see what we can put together. Best case would be a good mix of music and talk-based streams, and whatever else Ernst comes up with. Don't be shy to do crazy/assburger stuff, people are gonna love it.

Running time should be at least 12 hours. If there are enough streamers contributing, we can extend the duration to for example 24h, start as early as Saturday and stream around the clock, or have a few hours break at night. We can decide about the details when we have an idea about what kind of content we're going to have. If anyone has ideas what else we could do on that day, lets hear it.

I'd take a 1h slot somewhen at the beginning of the marathon and tell some generic stuff about the radio, statistics, records and stuff, with some music breaks. Also in the meantime I'll look for a suitable scheduling website without registration which we can use for the streaming schedule.

Found a halfway-decent online calendar for our marathon schedule. Looks nice, but in the free version it's read-only, so no collaboration. Not sure if we even need to have parallel editing, might only cause confusion in the long run anyway. If needed I'd just share the account with PM in the chat or in discord or whatever. I already entered what we talked about in the chat and the streams which already have been announced. Legend:

green: more or less confirmed times
yellow: announced streams, which haven't been scheduled yet (and thus will probably be moved to wherever the streamer decides)
white: optional time period, will be used if we have enough content


Cool! You mean you're also in for streaming, or just for listening?

Sunday 1400 CEST(1200 UTC, 0800 EDT), which you've pencilled in yellow, works for me and my Maybe Elvis stream. Feel free to change that yellow to green. Depending on how the schedule fills out, I could do more than an hour that morning, but for now we can confirm at least that one.

Done! I also consider doing a second segment, but I'm kinda waiting until Prostmusik and Kosmonauten have made their move. Also I'm not sure if/how Alt can participate since he initially said that Sep 6th doesn't work for him - but if we extend to Saturday he might be able to make it. We'll know more after the weekend I think.

Also: If we extend to saturday we will have a night and an early morning to cover. In that case I was thinking that we could do some special events, like for example having another discord gaming session on early sunday before the marathon picks up at 12 CEST, or maybe the tabletop guys can broadcast one of their sessions (if that is even possible, don't know how those work tbh). We could also hold a tetris (spoiler: Kazakhernst wins) / speed chess / minigolf tournament. What do you guys think? Keep it strictly radio, or do some bonus stuff around the main event?
No. 45165
The tabletop game currently is just me using mic for my own benefit (faster than typing, easier to stream of consciousness something out of nothing when I need to) and the guys typing back their responses. If people want to watch, they're welcome in my books, but it wouldn't make great radio footage.

I'm quite happy to put on some video games though if you want a special feature. Got a new desk mic set up today to replace the busted one on my headset, so I can actually do proper streams again.

Some news: We have an announcement from Prostmusik for saturday, so I put that in and moved my hour also to saturday after the album stream. That means sunday 13:00 was free, where I thought it might be a good idea to move Australiaernst to, because of the time difference. I also added a 2-hour-window sunday at 10 for a possible gaming session. Could also be extended if we want to and if no one else claims the early morning. Also: Even if a time slot is in green, that of course doesn't mean it shouldn't ever be changed. If any other slot fits you better, just say it and we'll work something out.

I also had the idea that we maybe could use the public stream for the marathon, because that would make it easier for the listeners if the mountpoint doesn't change all the time. If the client has a reconnect enabled (VLC does for example) they could just stay on the same channel for the whole marathon. Good idea y/n?

Sounds good! Since we still have a lot of time until the event, we can decide later what exactly we'd like to do. I'm sure there are plenty of possibilities. But since I finally managed to beat FTL today you likely will be spared from watching more space failure :DD

Two little things:
1st: I will again not be here at time for the sunday stream tomorrow but because we already moved it 2 times by a week i will just push it back to 18:00 Germany time. It will happen just a bit later.

2nd: I spend a lot of time sitting at home listening to music while i do some other stuff, so streaming is usually not much work but keeping a scedule of 2 fixed streames per week can still be pretty annoying.
So i decided that i'm going to merch the 2 existing streams into one (keeping a healthy mix of classics and niche music) and just have a bonus stream every now and then where i stream albums that aren't very succesfull in the poll.
I'm not sure at what time i should make that saturday/sunday merch stream so i would love to get some input for time and day here or in the chat.

Neither a fan nor a detractor of Nine Inch Nails, but Trent Reznor's massively impressive oeuvre as an artist speaks to his dedication towards and mastery of his music. Even if you don't listen to his music, the credits to his name demand respect from anyone.

Marilyn Manson? Never liked his music. It was thanks to him the late '90s and early 2000s were plagued with mallgoths.
No. 45490
Mallgoths? Maybe. I think that if anything you'd want to complain about the horrid transition of American culture post-9/11 where we got emo and even every band went to total shit although Manson took such a minor role compared to idk whatever emo or screamo groups were around then and thankfully are probably not now.

Really though that part of the metal scene grew up out of things like Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Alice in Chains, Type O Negative, and various more notorious or obscure groups. Manson helped mainstream it but it was already there and had been for quite some time. I don't think mallgoths were even that big a thing and a lot of it still had much, much cringier shit pushing it like various numetal bans, Slipknot, GWAR, I'm kind of spacing on all the bands I used to know atm sorry I'm exhausted. I mean really when you boil it down Manson was basically just the KISS of the late 90s except he was far edgier and also made far better music. Also he was never the same kind of cunt as Gene Simmons. God that man was such a faggot.

You are right though and I think it was a pretty cool feature of that era that you could literally do things like put your Quake II CD in a walkman and listen to its soundtrack and that the soundtrack was made by an actual musician. Not to knock soundtracks I mean some of them are made by actual famous composers afterall, but it was just such a neat little thing of the era to have a guy like Reznor composing a 90s videogame soundtrack and being able to pop that into your stereo or car CD player or listen to it on the bus.

What exactly do kids even listen to nowadays other than mumblerap and Grimes and Billie Eilish, who herself kinda has that same goth metal edgelord type of thing going on but differently. I mean they do still listen to bands right? Or is this some kind of thing like how they don't go trick or treating anymore either and the next generation just isn't as big on music?
No. 45492
Funny you mention Gene Simmons. I credit the movie Detroit Rock City for playing a small but important role getting me into music along with the Guilty Gear soundtracks and later my first album Never Mind the Bollocks. KISS is insanely repetitive and monothematic, but they knew how to play the perfect party tunes. It's been years since I listened to them, but I just might have to revisit them especially since they inspired tons of my favorite bands.

And yes, Gene Simmons is utterly repulsive. Funny story about him and Haim Saban of Power Rangers fame. The two now treat the following as water under the bridge:
>A classic Hollywood story involves Gene Simmons of Kiss. In the late '90s, as co-owner of the Fox Family Channel, [Haim] Saban was developing shows for children. Simmons, the fire-breathing, blood-spitting frontman of a rock band in costumes and face paint, pitched Saban an idea for a new Saturday-morning cartoon: Kiss meets X-Men, the Marvel comics superhero team. Saban liked the concept well enough to convene a meeting with Avi Arad, then CEO of Marvel's toy division.
>At the appointed time, Saban, Arad, and Simmons sat down. The meeting was going well, and the three began to haggle over numbers. Then Saban turned to Arad and, referring to Simmons, confided in Hebrew, "Now we gut him like a fish." Without missing a beat, Simmons—who, unbeknownst to Saban, was born Chaim Witz in Haifa, Israel—replied in Hebrew, "You asshole. I'm one of you."

I would definitely say some segments of Nu-Metal, especially Slipknot, played a role in forging what would then be known as mallgoths. Twas a long and gradual process, but keep in mind plenty of Nu-Metal fans wanted nothing to do with that subculture. Other sources of influence we both haven't mentioned yet: Hot Topic and Spencers. Don't need to elaborate, do I?

Nu-Metal has always been a fascinating case study in the evolution of heavy music, especially once it becomes commercially viable. The genre stood at the vertex of Rap Rock, Hard Alternative/Grunge, Industrial Rock/Metal, Funk Metal, Groove Metal and even Hardcore Punk (to a much lesser extent), all popular on MTV from the late '80s up until '94. By the time Korn dropped their first album, all those genres fell by the wayside into the background and Nu-Metal rose to the top.

While bands seldom differentiated in lyrics covering pain, angst, destruction and misanthropy, most of them sounded worlds apart from one another. Bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Soulfly or Static-X reveled in bravado, impulsive and tribalistic aggression while Slipknot or Marilyn Manson hearkened to Shock Rock. Korn took cues from Faith No More and Helmet while Slipknot looked up to Mr. Bungle. Deftones initially had a more Post-Hardcore meets Hip-Hop undertone to their Nu-Metal sound. Towards the twilight of the genre's life, Linkin Park was introspective in their lyrics and focused more on Electronic, Trip-Hop and even Ambient atmospheres with their sound.

Twas an eclectic genre, but separating those bands from their influences was their willingness to conform and return to machismo thanks to the Hip-Hop and Hardcore influences. Alternative bands were often quirky, elegant and socially progressive, thus politically correct. Nu-Metal took the opposite approach with more bands conforming to a tough-as-nails working class style. With minor exception, those guys were looking to throw down if you so much as looked at them funny.

Bands directly responsible for its genesis or influential-but-not-necessarily-Nu-Metal: Pantera, Helmet, Prong, 24-7 Spyz, Living Colour, Fishbone, Deftones, Mordred, RATM, Tool, Infectious Grooves, Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, '90s Sepultura, Alice in Chains, Godsmack, Body Count, White Zombie, L.A.P.D., Korn, Biohazard, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Skinlab, Slipknot, Soulfly, Mushroomhead, One Minute Silence, Powerman 5000, P.O.D. and countless others.

>What exactly do kids even listen to nowadays other than mumblerap and Grimes and Billie Eilish, who herself kinda has that same goth metal edgelord type of thing going on but differently. I mean they do still listen to bands right? Or is this some kind of thing like how they don't go trick or treating anymore either and the next generation just isn't as big on music?

A disturbing trend I've noticed is late Millennials (mid '90s births) and Zoomers do not care about Rock music at all. It is strictly for Boomers, Gen-Xers, Xennials and core Millennials (late '80s/early '90s births). Part of it is that they simply didn't grow up with any mainstream Rock bands worth mentioning, and those that charted were often the punchline to several jokes (hello, Nickelback).

Times change. Rock came about when TV became dominant, EDM came about as personal computers (and their electronic synthesizers within them) spread, and late Millennials and Zoomers experienced music through streaming services, YouTube, iTunes and God knows what other internet platforms. A cursory glance at the state of the recording industry today shows it's completely adrift. A few years back during the Grammy Awards, the head of the RIAA came out and practically begged people not to block ads on streaming services because it cost them money. Tellingly, most of the award winners got their respective starts on YouTube; Justin Bieber himself is old news now, but he was the original star plucked from YT obscurity.

What's left for Rock? You either have hobbyists like me who spend most of his waking hours scouring the internet for obscure things to listen to or old men strumming the guitars they bought when Johnson, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Papa Bush or Clinton were President.
No. 45493 Kontra
Another thing I forgot to mention: young people typically don't like anything that's too status quo. Since Rock is an established institution of music, it's not going to be something hip and cool anymore. Sort of like Jazz, really.

Update for the marathon: We have announcements for shows from Brickman (call-in-show) and Kosmonauten, who I suppose will do some kosmonautish stuff. Also Altbernd can't be here with us that weekend, but will as far as I know create a playlist which we can play in his name. chvk's Prostmusik on Saturday evening will be open end. For Brick's call-in show I reserved 2 hours on the schedule, if you need more/less let me know. For Kosmonauten I assumed they will want to have their usual timeslot on Sunday 19:00GMT/21:00CET.

That leaves 2h open, and I think some guys already said that they'd make a second show if needed. For now, it looks like we won't have any trouble to fill up even the extended schedule, which is breddy awesome, thanks a lot for everyone's contributions!

For the discord gaming block on sunday morning we most likely also won't have trouble finding streamers, since it's becoming a thing even without any coordinated effort. If you wanna show off something just let me know, I myself will play 30min of Nethack. At the moment we have 2h reserved for the whole block, but we can extend that to the earlier morning hours if needed.

As an alternative we could play Wingman, that should be realistic to have the 2 needed players plus a commentator.

As for the playlist, it can be everything from 1 to 3 hours and I decided for a genre already. Will be about trve svrfer music, so some old tunes played with the svrf guitar like rockabilly, some instrumentals and then covers and pieces which are used by Tarantino a lot.

Since I won't be able to stream, it can be played where it fits, I just need an announcement for how long it may be. Perhaps even, if chvk feels sleeply in the morning hours, it can be placed there to end his segment?

Just tell me how many hours I can fill and I will send a volunteer a playlist and the music files via a link.

Sounds good. And even if it for some reason doesn't work out: I doubt we'll have any trouble filling up any amount of time for the gaming session.

I confirmed you for the 1300 slot. For the morning: There's plenty of time available. Early morning is probably not the most rewarding time to stream, since most european and american listeners will still be sleeping. But if you wanna go for it: Great! Not sure how many guys from Russia/Asia/Oceania there are on EC. Since I recently saw an indian flag, it's probably more than we know.

Noice! Since I haven't heard about any new entries I think that it's ok to fill up the schedule by now, so I confirmed you for the full 3 hours. If chvk will be the volunteer and there are still people listening, he can just put in on when he quits, but it probably would attract more listeners on the current sunday spot. I still have it highlighted in yellow, since the brickman stream is not yet scheduled.

Ok, I'll conceptuate a 3 hour playlist. If the segment gets moved and shortened I will try to shorten it or the streamer has to. But I will create the playlist and provide the music files, since most likely some of them won't be on spotify and I cannot be bothered to check a service I myself do not use.

Might do a test stream on the Radio Discord later tonight. Want to see ahead of time (thinking of contributing to the 24 hour streaming section) how well I can make it work with the transmitting to Germany bit. Took a bit of fiddling to get good streams between myself and Brick in our own sessions (worked best by setting our server to be based in HK.

Stop by for some cosy gaming and serious discussion. Will update when I'm about to start. Probably in 90 minutes or so.

As requested, an alternate version of our radio logo with the silhouette of Germany replaced by a globe. You'll be happy to know I was able to make an .svg from the original raster file. To do that I scaled everything up 2x(because I read that larger images are easier to convert), and then used www.img2go.com. The process went like this: Convert .png to .svg==> See a black blob where my lines are fuzzy or too close together==> Open my drawing file and erase a few pixels==> Convert again==> Repeat 50 times :D).
The attached archive contains the Radio Ernstiwan logo.svg file.

Okay, a slight correction. If you look closely at the .png files in my previous post, you will see some slight fuzziness on the tower and on the concentric circles. I fixed that, and these images are better. The .svg in the archive is fine, I just forgot to update my drawing file after the last round of erasing pixels. There is something about hitting that 'Reply' button that suddenly causes me to notice small details that I overlooked.

I just found out that you can configure a custom music loop to any Icecast mountpoint when it is not online, so basically if you connect against a mountpoint that is offline, or if you are listening to an active stream and it is cut off for some reason, the stream doesn't interrupt and you get transferred to the mp3 file that can be configured for that occasion.

Only downside so far: This interferes with front page integration on EC, since it now thinks there is a stream online. I'll talk to Ernstadmin if that can be supressed, since the json file the frontside integration uses shouold look different than when an actual stream is running. Not sure if I leave it configured for the marathon, though. If it is not 100% working, it's probably better to go with the old setup.

Ebin, great work. Will update the image on the server accordingly.

I experimented a lot with the custom music loops as a fallback when a stream goes offline. Unfortunatly there were (and are) some issues: Configuring these fallbacks changes Icecasts output of json data, which is used both by frontpage integration on EC and the statistics module. Both got very confused :DD I butchered some workarounds for that into the relevant files, only to notice that the fallback itself doesn't seem to be very reliable. Stopping a stream and falling back on the mp3 loop always works. Restarting the stream and having the fallback stream revert back to the original works... sometimes? And the chances seem to be decreasing when doing the same again.

Not sure if I can do anything there, since that is an Icecast-native feature, so I have no insight on what is happening. Internet also seems not very talkative about that particular issue. I'll check tomorrow and run some additional tests: If it proves unreliable I suggest not to use it, because we risk having the clients listen to the fallback while the original stream is back on again for minutes, if not forever.

Based Pepsiman, I know where this has to go!

>and I'm having performance anxiety
I also started taking some notes about stuff I want to say, but most of the things I didn't note I already have forgotten :DD It's always the same: "Oh that's good, I need to write that down... later." And suddenly, it's night and I lie in my bed.

I decided to stop trying to implement that fallback music loops for the weekend, because it causes too many side effects. I will need some time to restructure the json output and the status page to be able to handle multiple of those fallback points to even be able to run a decent test, and even if that works: At the moment I think it's buggy anyway, because it works once, but not twice. When a stream cuts off for the second time, you will get transferred to the fallback and stay there. Strangely enough, the metadata from your stream will be delivered, but it will still play the fallback song, until you exit the client manually and reconnect.

So even if I tried hard (which everybody knows I won't :DD): Chances are high that it would still cause trouble for the weekend, so I just reverted most of the changes. I'll try to come up with something after the marathon.

Will stream some Sodom at 17:00UTC/19:00CET, to demonstrate my questionable musical taste, but also to check if the radio survived the configuration onslaught of the last few days. The songs will be mainly from the earlier albums (about 1985-1995). The genre is just as you would expect from a band with an album cover like this.

Only 3 hours left until the marathon. Final infos:

  • I'll stream for Alt tomorrow because he can't be here with us. He already sent me his playlist.
  • No special agreements about which account to use when streaming, because the whole fallback stuff didn't work properly anyway
  • There's still space in the discord block tomorrow, so far only 30min Nethack is confirmed, and we still lack players for CS:GO. If there are no more announcements, we'll just improvise.

I'm gonna do some early morning streaming for any Euro night owls or whatever. Going to start in the discord in 15-20 minutes. I'll start easy, and won't jump straight into monster games (if I do at all).

I'm live on discord, but dunno how well it'll go. This is Australian internet and for some reason, my housemate playing Battlefield is enough to wreck everone else's upload speed.

Seems like 8:00GMT/10:00CET was a little early, literally no one there on discord :DD
