Shoutcast Radio, Music

Posted by Shane

While I am doing things on my computer, that doesn’t involve gaming, but requires some stimuli, I turn on my favorite shout cast radio station. That would be XRM Radio based in Dallas, Texas. The station is designed around the format of user’s who like the classic alternative and rock n’ roll music of the 80’s and 90’s. There are very few “newer” songs on the master play list, but the users of the site vote on the new songs to be added.

I myself have an extensive “favorite” list of music that I could request, but sometimes I don’t need to since most of the music selected to play by most users and the system I enjoy. In my previous post about satellite radio, I said that would be my preferred way of getting music while I am out and about.

Otherwise you might get punched in the face.

If you dont want to get punched, dont try to scare someone.

If you don't want to get punched, don't try to scare someone.

Otherwise this is pretty funny! Tops to Elie for pointing this out!

Domino’s Pizza Tracker

Posted by Shane

When I order pizza, I usually get it from Dominos. What is one of the things I really like about Dominos is the pizza tracker where you can see the progress of your order. Now I know that this is “technology” that anyone can use, it would be cool to see this in restaurants to see how your order is going.

Since the FCC approved the merger a few days ago between the two satellite radio companies, they have announced today that the new company has been formed.

I think this is great because both services I wanted to be a part of, but since they were two different companies, getting the stations on one device was impossible. Now with this merger, they can funnel all channels into a single device!

This will make the “channel” lineup huge and allow at least for me to get both MLB and NFL stations on a single device. It it might be worth to buy a device and hold a subscription as having access to these channels with no commercials is the way to go. I think the only thing bad about the receivers is that it can not get traditional FM/AM or HD-Radio channels as I still do like to listen to terrestrial radio systems. :)
