Radio silence!

Radio silence!

It looks like our main radio server just gave up on us! It has served us well for the past eight years or so, running 24-7, 365 days a year without much hiccups. It's quite remarkable that a computer with Windows XP can run that long on SP1 without troubles. But finally it fell asleep, it seems to still be alive, but it just blinks when I start it. This is not the end for us of course! Though I need to configure the new server I have sitting here properly first. But it will be a little while though.

There are options in the meantime!

Sometimes the magic smoke that powers the innards of computers leaks our and cannot be replaced. Windows XP has also had all its energy slide away. Everywhere this combination of software and hardware need to be replaced. Often the replacement device calls for more or larger fans to keep the new equipment cool when Dragons pass by.

Thanks for your effort from one of your fans.

XP SP1!? Can't believe you weren't hacked ages ago. Looking forward to your return.

Thanks all for you encouraging words! I will try to get my act together to get us back during the holiday season ahead. I've been too swamped with dull work the last year, but hopefully things will clear up during x-mas. I will work hard to try to get us back as quick as possible!

Thank you for the effort and for having kept it going for so long, I truly do look forward to seeing the radio up and running again. Been listening to it for years, its felt empty without it!
