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!

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.

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 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.

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 really enjoy the playlist Prostmusik has put together. They would be even nicer to listen to, while driving at night through the city. Some radio broadcaster should give him his own night show, so I could become a taxi driver and listen his show, while driving some totally wasted people around.

Like always we start at 18:00CET which is in 1 hour from now.
The sunday stream will be moved to next week because of reasons.

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.

>European power metal with high pitched vocals.
In b4 Edguy, Sonata Arctica and Rhapsody :DD Also: Don't have a strong preference, would enjoy all of this I think, but I still wanted to post so that you see I made up my mind.

For clarity, that's 23:00 UTC saturday.

None of those, but in that ballpark :-DDD. I usually stream two albums back to back, the second one is still undecided, not sure if to go with a classic or promising newcomer.

US ernst already voted for melodeath / egor letov in the chat. Maybe I'll have to decide randomly after all, or pick several alle the ultimate tonal whiplash :-DDD.

(hopefully, the stream won't conflict too much with kosmonauten's)

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.
Stream will begin in about 5 or 10 minutes past 23:00 UTC.

Won't be able to do today. Got some shit on. Good luck with the show though.
No. 45066
Thanks for participating everyone.
Next stream will be egor letov's stuff, both early and late albums.

Dang, too bad, but good luck with whatever you're busy with.
Maybe I'll give you a private viewing on the pnp discord later :-DD.

Yeah, had a video interview but I couldn't figure out how to set up the technology. Got it set up just in time for a lunch with my cool uncle who I don't see often (the train driver, not the snobbish dickhead).

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. Half of the chat isn't even about the game but rather a bunch of grogs talking about history and military theory.

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.

Sounds good, count me in.

Pretty based stream yesterday, especially the Twilight Zone stuff :DD

is that the band's mascot?
I think this might top Riot's mascot in ridiculousness, which is a weird seal-faced yeti creature.

Sadly, it's not their mascot, because that indeed would be funny: It's the egyptian god Set. Almost all Therion albums have some mythological, religious or spiritual theme as backstory, as you can easily see by those covers of later albums. I escpecially enjoy the Lemuria cover because of it's soothing colors, it did make my background image for a considerable amount of time.

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.

I never give any advance notice before I start streaming, but for this occassion I'll gladly break that tradition :D. Count me in. I don't know what to play, but I'll think of something. Elvis. No, artists who covered Elvis. Wait, even better: songs that appeared on an album which also contained a cover of an Elvis song! Aw man, I wonder what that list would look like. I wasn't serious, but now I think that could actually work. I have to do some research...

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.

I'll do a show of some sort.

Also, regarding times. Thanks to the wonders of time zones, I can cover some of the earlier times, since right now it's 3AM CEST but 11AM here.

OK great, booked it as yellow, since my guess is that we will be able extend the schedule in some form, so there hopefully will be plenty of maneuvering space.

>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.
