There appears to be some confusion about Altacast encoding software it seems people think it’s connected to the developer of RadioDJ.

Altacast was coded by a completely different person by the Nicknames of Dusty Drifter and SnowHow and it appears they’ve disappeared off the forums and the Internet.

The Altacast website hasn’t been updated since March 2016.

The Program Is Provided “As Is” (RadioDJ)

We feel the need to clarify a few things to those people who keep demanding that we help them with RadioDJ setup issues.

Honestly some people expect far too much from a free piece of software… It might help if they read the RadioDJ licence agreement

When something goes wrong with RadioDJ we don’t have to give technical help or advice… We do 99.8% of the time because we care enough about the software.

Radionomy Delisting Shoutcast Servers

Saw a post on the Winamp forums about Radionomy de-listing Shoutcast v1.x.x servers from the Shoutcast YP listings website.

Radionomy will now no longer allow Shoutcast DNAS v1.9.8 servers to list publicly on the Shoutcast directory.

Stage Fright? Oh Yes Lots Of Times!

I feel I need to clarify a few things to certain sections of the Internet Radio DJ crowd who think I’m mentally unbalanced.

“No No No! I just happen to suffer from depression and anxiety”

It would appear stigma against people with mental health problems is rife in the world of DJ work.

I’ve suffered with depression and anxiety for a long time now. Which all stems from the loss of my Mother when I was 7 (1980)

It doesn’t seem to have mattered how many psychologists they’ve thrown at the problem over the years nothing changes. Doctors don’t tend to listen either.
