UPDATE: Decided to reschedule because of lack of working features. The server again experienced a disk fill up, and this time recovering space used, was not effective. So with very little features working that make this station what it is, available to you during shows, I would like to have that fixed before having a show. Also, hard to have a show without a working mic Gotta figure that one out... Sorry for the inconvenience.
January was fun and all, but February is where the action really is in my opinion.
2/2 - Sonic the Hedgehog Day! Just kidding, it's Punxsutawney Phil the Groundhog day! Punxsutawney Phil did not see his Shadow, and the mild weather shows signs of Spring.
2/14 - Valentines day...Also known as Call your Dentist Day and for some people on Imgur, and such, they call it Forever Alone Day...
Some of the not so known days of Feb...
Today 2/3 was Carrot Cake day, Thursday 2/4 is Stuffed Mushroom Day, Friday 2/5 is Bubblegum Day, and Saturday 2/6 is not only AnimeAMAZE First show of 2016, but also Frozen Yogurt Day...
But considering we have not had a show in January, I think this is the best time to talk to you about all the newness, you see and hear before you! As you know AnimeAMAZE changed a bit of software around, did some upgrade, and all sorts of neatness around you. The best way to go over this is really with some Frozen Yogurt, and some new tunes on AnimeAMAZE! Tune in at 9:30PM EST and be ready to get a live show finally!

UPDATE: New Software has taken over, and running, as is the request page that has changed a bit. Please feedback is my friend, so if something is off, or different and not too pleasant let me know and I can see what I can do to help you, or make adjustments.
AnimeAMAZE is only hours away from launching the new software for our radio station.
I will say, it was a real pain in the rear to get set up, but eventually, things worked out well.
Again, I want to stress, things will look and sound different. I tried to set the audio processor to sound as close to the same we have already which is natural sound of the original recording but keeping a constant volume level so you are not listening to one quite song, and then be blasted out by a louder song next. This certain processor is much more powerful though. it compensates for a lot of the lossy quality that may go out to encoders. I have been listening to a handful of songs with it, and it sounds pleasing to me on my studio phones and speakers. If you have any feedback to offer about it, PLEASE do send me an email! I want this to be a pleasant listening experience for everyone. Our last processor was tuned to perfection by yours truly and i had nothing but complements on how nice it sounded on both Internet and FM. So please let me know if it is not great, or could be improved. Some songs that are older, their age will show, so in the Tag I marked what is Vinyl recordings and what are not. So please remember, let me know! Most stations use a very harsh compression, but I don't like that. I like to have something very fluid.
New Request page is also coming along for this software. I am not a huge fan of change, but this will be better for us, and allow more features for live shows which will be nice for live shows (as in I can see the dedication right on the software.)
As for live shows, there will be one soon (as in Next week), so this new Audio processor will hopefully make me sound alright. Transition is hours away, but should be launched by tonight, and if not, I will let you know and it will be tomorrow!

UPDATE at 1:17 1/27: The server is still down. The new hardware did go in, but it went a bit deeper than plugging in a chip here and there. An entire main board was changed to accomdate the new hardware, that is going to be capable of running the new software. I will say the transition to the new software has been quite the party, and I thank you for all your patience. In February, there will be a show, and I will not be able to thank you all enough except for put on a great show!
So what is happening to the Server right now is copying files over. The drive that was used as a USB drive no longer wanted to spin up in the enclosure, so the drive was put into a computer, and the transfer is rather slow. 3 hours the music should be all there! I should be sleeping by 4AM, and I will try to get some work done in the morning, and late evening.

Sorry I know, I mentioned this would be a show announcement.
Reason for the lack of shows is busy schedule, the classic "Something just came up" thing which most of the time is inevitable, and also the update to the radio station software!
This planned reboot tonight is just for that! Something needed to be installed, just to see if we can get it going! And I noticed there were some updates Windows wants to install, so I figure I will let it do it's thing as well, before it gets really angry. So with all that said, Station will be down for a few minutes early morning, late evening for most. I will have the backup on and running, so you will notice the switches.

Busy weeks already, and 2016 just started!
This evenings downtime was brought to you by a partition that was 100% full. So full it was 100% full!
Basically what triggered this is still unknown, but something triggered something else, and a log file expanded. Looking at the logs, there is no abnormalities or things of concern, I think it was just doing it's job keeping logs of things as it should. I think maybe the last bit of downtime may have triggered it to log a lot more since it involved reboots and what not. Anyway, I freed up 51% space, so things should be set for now. backup kicked on at around 11, so I will kick it off, and get the real stream back up!
~NEXT TIME ON THIS NEWS FEED~ will hopefully be a live show notice!
