I kept turning it up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am Ken From Hyde Park:

If only the NSA had a means to feel our sadness.
  12:26am Nate:

@cbk Tom Waits eventually appears on this track! After 45 minutes or so...
Avatar 12:27am Kim's dime druggist:

@cbk Nice work on that classic Hondadog in your profile page. Did you fashion that sweet ride yourself?
Avatar 12:29am Greyhound Custer:

@Ken The NSA knows exactly what we feel,, it's our misery that gives them so much pleasure in their work.
  12:34am Nick Name:

@Nate - i believe there is a few versions - one i played is without Waits
  12:34am cbk:

@Kim' dime's A friend of mine built the honda. So lucky, I'v got'n many chances to ride it : )
  12:34am Nick Name:

its cold out - hello everyone
  12:36am cbk:

Hey Nick. First time listener. Love your show....
Avatar 12:38am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

First time I heard the Waits version was on WFMU about 14 years ago...it kept going and going...blew me away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38am sinister dexter:

yup cold , michigan here
  12:39am Nate:

@Nick the first 20 minutes or so sound very similar. the version with Waits gradually keeps expanding, way longer... it really is something to hear all the way through.
  12:40am Nick Name:

@cbk - thanks man - check out my archives if you feel like it
Avatar 12:41am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

My interest in Neil Young was enhanced by seeing the crazy 80's nuclear film he made with Devo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42am sinister dexter:

  12:43am Nick Name:

@ nate: yes , got to listen to the Waits version - i think a headphone experience would be nice for that - full volume
Avatar 12:49am Droll:

I had no idea such a thing existed, but apparently Kenzo is correct. Hey hey, my my: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 12:49am Mary Wing:

Is anyone else having problems with the stream? It was fine until the Kelompok Kampungan ended, now it's continuously buffering on both the 128 kbps and the pop-up player. Restarting my laptop has not made a difference.
Avatar 12:51am Droll:

MW, I just "tuned in" at 128kbs MP3, sounds fine (when the YT tab with Devo Young isn't playing simultaneously).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52am Tome:

Hiya Mary not working for me either now the 128K stream boo hoo
Avatar 12:54am Mary Wing:

The Evil Thing™ has not reached the west coast, I guess.
Avatar 12:54am Whooda:

@Mary Wing Thanks for the clue last night. I tracked down DJ Joe's archive with the three hour (Can't get no) Satisfaction show and listened to it earlier today.
  12:55am Nate:

yep. stopped working for me at the same time
Avatar 12:55am Droll:

MW, No, I'm here in Seattle. I blame Kenzo for making it work when it shouldn't. It's all backwards, as usual.
Avatar 12:57am Mary Wing:

Cool, Whooda; did you download all those ebooks from Holly's links as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58am Ike:

Rest assured Nick, you still have at least 1 listener getting a solid signal, via 91.1 (since I am close to the Oranges and using a stereo w/a dipole antenna). Can't get it when I leave my apt., sounds too distorted on MP3 Walkman & car stereo due to the transmitter probs, but I've got nowhere to go.
Avatar 12:58am Droll:

I just heard a legal ID, so stream is working over here...

MW, I missed the last third of yesterday's show. You're moving up a day? Starting when?
Avatar 12:59am Mary Wing:

Droll, I was referring to whatever Evil Thing™ is causing the streams to clusterfuck, not your particular Evil™ness.
  1:00am Nick Name:

@mary wing - stream still not working for you ?
Avatar 1:00am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Are we all multitasking? I'm finishing up the archive for my Wednesday show (I obsessively create them all by hand rather than allow the robot's rough touch).
Avatar 1:00am Whooda:

@Mary I have those sites safely bookmarked, much like a pretty home library stuffed with books that have never been read:)

If my stream were in sound it would sound like this cover of Crazy Horse.
Avatar 1:01am Mary Wing:

No, Nate, got nothing here at all. The rebuffering status bar is not moving.
Avatar 1:02am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Playing fine here.
Avatar 1:03am Mary Wing:

I'm swapping with Small Change's time slot starting next week, Droll. Tuesday at midnight is my new home for the next 6 months.
Avatar 1:04am Whooda:

My WIFI signal is the problem, not the stream. meh, you get what you pay for with free wifi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05am Tome:

2 cans and string here still nada == wired ..
  1:05am Nate:

The stream during Therese's show was doing the same for me recently. Something about this time of night I guess.
Avatar 1:07am Mary Wing:

I'm tethered to an ethernet cable; this should not be happening, even with the bad weather. Heard maybe 4 seconds of John Cooper Clarke just now.
Avatar 1:08am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Mary: What address are you using, in what player? I've checked all 4 128K MP3 streams and they're all playing OK. You might just be having connectivity trouble on your end (ISP).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08am Tome:

not gonna bother with the old reliable Emerson radio and foil being that I was hearing the 91.1 was down also..
  1:08am cbk:

Loud and clear here on my 24K windows stream. Thank you....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am Tome:

<DING> lemme try that .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Tome:

nope it's this tried the 320 K stream at WCB* works fine !! on winmp pls
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am Tome:

now I try open winamp again ,,, == player didn't respond at all now when I opened the 128 K stream for here == weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am Tome:

...opens this time just goes to Buffering stuck at random percentage thiis time only 20!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:16am pacific standard simon:

What's up, doc?
Avatar 1:17am Droll:

. o O ( Damn, I hate software )
Mary, in these circumstances I try to change as little on my end as possible. No matter what's broken, it will magically fix itself (or not) like all the other software. It's more like fate than technology.
  1:19am cbk:

@pacific standard simon Smewovision wepwaces tewovision....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20am Ike:

Don't need it because I have FM, but I just tested the pop-up player out of curiosity. It did not emit any audio. So that's weird.
Avatar 1:21am Mary Wing:

Feh, I give up; going back to watching videos. Cheers, Nick and listeners!
Avatar 1:21am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Pop-up player working OK here. Maybe NJ isn't working today.
Avatar 1:22am Droll:

See you Tuesday, MW!

Eaaah.... sounds like a GHOST stowy, DOC!

Investigating potential stream sadness...
  1:27am Nick Name:

hey thx for all the stream working / half working etc, comments
  1:28am Nick Name:

hey jeff, got Stan to check it here , and all is good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28am Ike:

Yeah, maybe NJ's Internet is taking a snow day. I'm getting slower than usual speeds here, "only" 8 Mbps down on Fios instead of 25. Still sufficient for anything short of uploading my entire consciousness into a singularity, but that's odd.
Avatar 1:31am Jeff:

For those with problems... does this alternate URL for the 128K stream work?


I'm going to bet it does, because that's the case for me.
Avatar 1:32am Droll:

Al Gore could have left network design to the professionals, but nooooo, he had to have the NJ feature....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34am fleep:

Stream here is fine but it seems to be in Chinese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am Ike:

Yeah Jeff, that works. (I also tried dusting off the good old AAC+ stream. That does NOT work here.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am fleep:

Now unsure of language.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am pacific standard simon:

Oy, Jeff, I just realized you're THAT Jeff.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am fleep:

What I'm getting here is a very slow site reload, each time the playlist updates. And posting is also slow.
Avatar 1:47am Droll:

fleep, Sorry, that's my fault, I know Kenzo told me to hit reload more often for you. Is it working now?
Avatar 1:48am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Droll, there you go again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49am fleep:

Droll, I think the blame may lie in the dozen other WiFi users in the area. Seven other connections besides mine. Thank you, Time Warner hotspot #*@#*!
Avatar 1:53am Droll:

Kenzo, You mean "still". I accept the fact I inspired the "Eject Seat" feature you're programming presently. I don't even mind you won't name it after me.
Avatar 1:53am Jeff:

@pss: I am indeed whichever one I am.
Avatar 1:54am Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Droll, I actually suspected you were a distant descendant of Wile E. Coyote.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55am fleep:

It's like one long Mod Squad chase scene.
Avatar 1:57am Jeff:

So... how are the streamy things working for everybody?

I swapped things around and made our usually-backup stream server the primary. I don't actually see anything really going wrong with the usually-primary server, but if the network in its neighborhood is getting kind of swirly, let's give it some time to calm down, shall we?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01am pacific standard simon:

Actually, the stream's worked perfectly for me except for once when it quit and I had to hit play again. That might have been you switching the stream, or it might have been me multi-tasking.
Avatar 2:02am Droll:

Kenzo, Indeed. I believe you come from the Roadrunner family, no?

Jeff, I see you like to live dangerously -- I'm a "don't fix it if it ain't broke" kinda guy. My stream has been incident-free since I tuned in over an hour ago.
Avatar 2:07am Jeff:

It was actually intermittently broke for me in Jersey City, so that seemed worth a fix.

By "anything really going wrong" I meant aside from, well, the stream being funny for me.

Now, it may well be that the improvement I hear from switching to the backup is entirely related to its being a different network path away.
Avatar 2:11am Droll:

Jeff, If a particular change made the stream funny, you should definitely try making that mod during 7SD. They could use a little technological assistance in that part of their show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13am pacific standard simon:

Oh jeez, a Cat Stevens track that I actually like. You're freaking me out, Nick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16am fleep:

Is 7SD supposed to be funny? I thought it was a way to make me go outside and do something else.
Avatar 2:17am Jeff:

@Droll: The stream got funny annoying, not funny ha-ha. So re-breaking it that way would make no discernible difference in the case you describe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18am pacific standard simon:

7SD is funny like the show comments are funny...
Avatar 2:20am Droll:

Then it's unanimous: Neither the comments board nor 7SD is funny and nothing will help.

fleep, I also like to listen to Irwin's show to the end, flip off the machine, and go outside to do something before it gets dark.
