Bye Bye Childhood….

Bye Bye Childhood….

When the news broke that Jimmy Savile had abused young children while at the BBC & in hospitals. It was a big shock for everyone.

Appalling as that news was along came Operation yewtree which then lead to the Stewart Hall trial & now the Rolf Harris trial.

In which Rolf has just been found guilty of 12 counts of indecent assault against children.

It’s all a bit sickening when people you looked up to as a kid are suddenly found guilty of such acts of depravity.

I’d imagine the Queen is at this very moment ordering the portrait of her by Rolf Harris be burned!

No child deserves to go through that hell. I know I was once that child being abused by someone.

Thankfully my abuser was also caught and locked up. It’s unfortunate that they didn’t spot in in time with Jimmy Savile.

I really hope Rolf Harris rots for this….It’s totally ruined my childhood.


Remember: If you know child abuse is happening or someone is grooming a child online then report them immediately to the relevant authorities.

There is no place for animals like this is civilised society!


Stop Spamming Me Spacial Audio

I’ve just recieved an email from sales@spacial.com offering me SAM broadcaster at a knocked down price.

Apparently it’s their 15th anniversary.

15th anniversary of making crap software was that?

I want to know why I’m still getting emails from this bunch of clowns. Especially when I quite clearly asked them to remove my email from their database over 3 years ago.

stop spam

Stop Spamming Me Spacial Audio! I don’t want SAM broadcaster now or ever again.

I’ve got far better FREE software to broadcast with now.

I’ve added their sales email address to spam assasin. Just to be on the safe side I better set up a filter in thunderbird so I don’t see them ever again.

It’s not your given right to spam people via email Spacial. Get my email address off your system NOW!

Why Still Use Windows XP & RadioDJ?

Why Still Use Windows XP & RadioDJ?

While trying to give help and advice to someone struggling to get MySQL talking to the RadioDJ webscript the user let it slip that he’s still using Windows XP.

That explains a lot it’s nearly 3 months since Microsoft stopped supporting that as an OS.

Further to that it’s bound to be full of security holes that Microsoft won’t be patching anytime soon.

Seriously if you are still using XP on an old computer theres going to be hardware conflicts if you try installing newer hardware.

What’s likely to happen there is lots of “Blue Sceens of death” and no one wants them.

It’s probably time you splashed out on a newer system and operating system. You can get a decent tower for around £200 ($340) from Amazon.

RadioDJ seems to work rather well on Windows 7.

I believe it also works on Windows 8 once you’ve activated all the .NET compents and updated Visual basic.

If your serious about Internet radio you want to be able to get the best performance out of your PC so things run smoothly.

Time to take a sledgehammer to that old tower!!

Simply Wonderful

I probably don’t praise the developer of RadioDJ enough.

The software has come on leaps and bounds this past year of two. It’s just simply wonderful to have a piece of software that does what it’s supposed to.

Even when i had a small problem with one of the RC releases Marius came to my aid and did a remote support session.

How many software developers do you know that would do that. Without charging you for the pleasure?

I know for a fact that Spacial audio would charge you through the nose for a remote support session with SAM Broadcaster.

I think it’s something like $30 an hour.

Just to be able to have a stress free experience with a piece of software is bliss!

I lost count how many times I swore at SAM broadcaster over the years because it wouldn’t work properly.

If RadioDJ had been around 10 years ago I’d probably would have had a successful radio station by now.

Instead I spent just shy of 8 years getting frustrated with software.

Marius you rock!! Thanks for such brilliant software!

Don’t Stream with Spacial? No support!

Just when I think Spacial Audio support can’t sink any lower I see this on the facebook page for SAM broadcaster.

A user is having issues with the encoders in the latest version of SAM broadcaster 2014 disconnecting on him every 5 minutes.

I’ve written about the Encoders in SAM being dodgy before!

Spacial support have come back to this user and said because he isn’t using their “Streaming” services they can’t help him.

Does anyone else see the problem here?

The user has stated that his stream host isn’t having any issues. Last time I looked Voscast had a pretty decent uptime.

So it seems yet again the problem lies within SAM Broadcaster and it’s dodgy encoders!

You know the drill by now: Don’t buy SAM Broadcaster or any software product from Spacial Audio.

Don’t Stream with Spacial? No support! when something goes wrong.
