Celebrating 15 years this October (since Oct 4, 2004)
Thank you to the Mystery Person who delivered the cake for our anniversary party
Thank you to those who have donated to the 2 projects of rebuilding both the audio computer and the Streaming Server over the past weeks. I am still accepting donations. Both failures were devastating as this is a non-profit operation. Neither 5DRadio nor the hosts receive compensation.
To: Bob of Exton for $250 , Clair of Downingtown who has a computer repair service for the Windows 10 License and George Dvorak of Parksburg for the $100 cash donation. Now also, Dave from Parksburg has made a large donation. His letter was also very entertaining. John Hoda donated $50 - Thankyou to all. The audio computer required a total rebuild with new motherboard, etc ($405) . The Server required a new SSD , updated Broadwave software, and Windows 10 ($95, not counting cost of Windows 10). Also Joe Myshko for donating the special audio cable needed for the new sound card.
SERVICE NOTES: Latest
July 6th Gremlins: IP address of streaming server changed between 7am and 735am (Windows 10) Then when realized, fixed, and router got mismatch with MAC address. Show started about 5 minutes late.
July 3 Fixed the phone line "left only" problem
June 23 Updated Streaming Server to Win 10 1903 update
June 18 Changed to on-board sound card, abandoning the Echo Pro card - thereby fixing the left only stream channel
May 20 Streaming Server: New SSD Dive with new Windows 10 Home, upgraded Broadwave Server software - this to replace infected harddrive from Worm and "Trojan-Bitcoin" that came in due to buffer overflow from old Broadwave software on the open streaming port.
May 6 th: I build a brand new i5-8400 6-Core Computer (new motherboard-CPU-8GB-SSD drive) for the "On-Air" audio that should be most reliable. Lots of hours went into this. Its fast! This machine is used to not only record, but all audio goes through it on the way to the streaming server and it supplies announcements and programming in automation. Maybe this will fix the stereo problem too. (NOT)
May 4, 2019 The audio computer failed. It was turned on at 650AM, still running at 710am, and then as I turned to go out the door, I heard a motorboating noise. I went back, the computer was frozen. I restarted or tried to but it wouldn't come to life. I called Joe to meet me in West Chester and headed there myself. It appears to be the motherboard.
