Gave up on Listen-to

April 27th, 2005

Looong time no update. I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and host the “What I’m listening to” box at the bottom of the page on my own server. Might move it to this server later if it supports GD, haven’t checked that yet. So, now it won’t rely on some overloaded server with 10000 users and should remain pretty stable. Since I’m crap at making pretty graphics, which this website is a good example of, I wouldn’t mind if someone were to design a nicer-looking box and send it to me.

Oh, and happy birthday M.

Viralsound gone as well

December 1st, 2004

I’ve just discovered that Viralsound has gone in the bin as well. Oh well, I guess you’ll all have to go on living without knowing what music I’m listening too. At least until Listen-to.com goes back online. And I know there hasn’t been any updates in the journal in a while. I’m lazy, so sue me.

Listen-to alternative found

June 4th, 2004

Discovered an alternative to Listen-to.com called Viralsound.com. Seems less crowded, so it’ll probably last longer. Also, removed the shoutcast link, since I never use it anymore.

“Now playing” banner back again

February 11th, 2004

Listen-to.com has reset it’s database to increase speed again, so I’m putting back the banner. They’re working on v2 of their site, hopefully they’ll get it done before their database gets out of hand again.

Picture journal page updated

January 30th, 2004

Added two pics to the journal and discovered it couldn’t handle the years properly, so I decided to re-write it completely. Managed to optimize the code quite a bit, so now the page is blazingly fast. Last night I also added a small icon at the bottom of this page to indicate if my shoutcast server is playing anything. It can only handle 3 connections simultaneously, since I just set it up for myself, but feel free to listen if you wish.

“Now playing” banner removed

January 24th, 2004

Removed the Listen-to banner, since it seems they can’t handle the bandwidth all their users are generating. Hopefully they’ll be back soon. I’ll probably put the banner back then.

A picture journal update

November 18th, 2003

Added a new licenseplate to the journal. Not especially funny or anything, I just thought it was time to update. Oh, and before I forget. If anyone wants to contact me for any reason, here’s my address: rorschach at rorschach dot se. If you can’t figure out how to read that, then maybe the Intarweb thingy isn’t for you.

Added “Now playing” banner

August 6th, 2003

Added a “Now Playing” banner at the bottom of the page, courtesy of Listen-To.com, so you can all bask in the glory of that which is my musical taste. Or point and laugh.

Updated picture journal page

July 21st, 2003

Updated the journal script and removed some bugs. Also, today is my birthday. Will probably add some pics to the journal tonight.

Added a picture journal

June 25th, 2003

Added a new page; the Journal. Here I’m going to post pics of my life. Some days more than others. Basically I’ll just bring my camera along some days and if I see or do something interesting I’ll document it. The pictures will usually be commented by myself to explain them. The first day’s photos are quite numerous since that was the day after I bought the camera. I was a bit over-enthusiastic, to say the least (I took over 50 pictures). I’ll try to show more restraint in the future.
