The Control Room

Welcome to my real home, not to be confused with upstairs which is just for show. Sometimes from here, I stream things out to the internet (musical things or maybe just me playing or talking) via youtube, or twitch or homebrew system through a vps server I set-up somewhere 😆

More Bandwidth “soon” means more streaming

In the 15 plus years I've been trying to do this, (for certain definitions of trying) upstream residential bandwidth has barely increased, at least not in my neck of the woods. Hopefully we'll be up at a 5mbs uplink this summer here and I can start streaming more things.

Obviously what has also happened is YouTube and Twitch have taking over video streaming. What I plan to so is set up a vps to relay streams I feed to it to other endpoints, so I can stream to several of these providers at once whoich only taking up one stream's uplink bandwidth. Hopefully I will be able to streams to some of the smaller providors at the same time, such as DLive.

Tunes.Buskers.Org “OnAir - anyday now” ... apparently

Oh it's been over four years, but real soon now I will make more music available here. I plan to occasionally stream live which I will then archive into ‘podcasts’. Also I will be adding some songs to the juke box. I just have to finish the scripts that will make it almost automatic *grin*. Check the Listen page for the current online status, which is ‘offline’, becuase if it wasn't I'd remove this message ;-)

Preparations

I have succeeded in upgrading my computer so now I'm only about one (well maybe 1 1/2) generations behind the Jones. I have completed my transition to the ogg vorbis format for my internal compressed audio files although I'll still be webcasting in that yucky em-pee-3 format for alittle while longer. Oh and I've started playing live on the internet again, though just occasionally and at random times... soon I'll organize that better, but while you're waiting for me to get my act together I have one song you can download here and listen too... you'll need ogg vorbis... or maybe i already said that.

Some Old Pictures

Also I have some pictures of the old place for ya'all. As you will see, not only is my computer and it's software under constant re-contruction, so is the studio itself!

Yes, I'm too lazy to post the new pictures
