This, this Hoshouser is a perfect example of what I was talking about earlier. All these disjointed pauses -- buffering problem? Turns out it's not, but I had to refresh the pop-up player a couple of times to be sure.
The Drummer robot server is *always* running. When I, or anyone on the stream, does a program, we are cutting into the stream. (Except, I think, for Doug, who does his program from where the stream originates. Maybe.) The stream *has* to be running in just such an eventuality of what happened here today. If my computer cuts out in the middle of the show, the stream would be silent. So the stream kicks in if my streaming software kicks out.
Listening Out There:
Does the Warn Defever sample Happy Apple? (Happy Apple is a side project of the drummer in The Bad Plus)
