end user Posted June 2, 2010 Share Posted June 2, 2010 Well here's whats happened in the last two weeks since I decided to start my shoutcast station. I had two spare laptops that one had a cracked screen and another had a burned out screen. They're both only two years old. Sooo... I decided to just buy a LCD monitor for now and hook it up to one of the laptops which would be the shoutcast source. I didn't want to fork over for new monitor so I hit up craigslist. Had selected 3 monitors and got replies that all were available untll the time when I asked for the address of each person, then all of a sudden no one replied - WTF? So I paid $135 for each laptop to have the monitors replaced. So they were good to go in two days. I had my shoutcast server and was ready to go. Well the Dell laptop monitor went after 5min of running, ok so off to the Acer ,well all was good and then all of a sudden my internet connection started to flake out and I couldn't run the source from home. Well call up SHAW and they couldn't send anyone in for two weeks to look at my line. Now I'm pissed. So I ordered ADSL in the mean time and it was a 5 day wait since it was Naked ADSL soI bring the Acer to work and run it off my works ADSL connection. Well seem the freeze winamp on reconnect bug in the Shoutcast DSP is still there after all these years and when the stream gets disconnected from the DSP, winamp freezes on the reconnect. Ok so I get the EDCast DSP. Now where rocking and what happens? Well Winamp seem to all of a sudden after a day of no problems stop after every track. I checked the preferences and all was good but seem for some reason Winamp's config file got corrupted and it set itself to stop after each track even though there was no check mark on that setting. I got it sorted after some reading. So now I had my Dell back all working good and my ADSL was ready to go. So I got home to set up the Dell and my new adsl modem. Well the modem is ****ed and need to be replaced. Now WTF??????? In the man time my cable connection is fixed. Now I haven't hooked up the Dell yet and took it to work today and installed Linux Mint 9 and was ready to get things running again. Well after the Mint 9 install all of a sudden there was a bright light and lots of sparks coming out of the Dell's power supply cable. It was going of like a mini fireworks. Wow :scared: what can I say about that except it didn't happened at my house when no one was at home. Now I was gonna get the Acer rocking BUT seems the LCD on it won't turn and it takes several reboots before it does. Really what else can I say. Well I got my new 35" Pro Comp A/T tires for my Bronco today which ride pretty good compared to my 35" Pro Comp Mud tires Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
