So like TacehT said in this news article, Phase 2 is slowly plopping along. We didn’t expect it to go this slow, but life gets in the way and you gotta handle real life over internet stuff. :) So really the technical breakdown of what’s happening to get us out of Phase 2 pre-launch and moved into Phase 3 –

Web Player on every page.
While technically speaking, it is on every page (in that little green line thingy) a lot of people have expressed hate for it because it looks retarded. Well fine screw all of you is what I say :P but the bigger one you see on http://www.externalradio.com/index will be put in it’s place. You will also be able to click on the DJ’s name and be taken to their profile page which makes it kinda snazzy. This shouldn’t take more than another week at most.

Request Systems
The SMS request system is being a real pain in my toosh. However, I am working on getting that situated but it might not be available at full launch :( Teamspeak just crashes out so I’ve given up on that till a friend of mine works on the code as I’m tired of looking at it hehe. However, what also is being worked on (and completed) is the web request system which is again, much more complex than your average request system. The page will display the current DJ’s playlist and regardless of what software they use to broadcast with, they will get ALL requests you send! This will make it much more easier on you, the listener, as you’ll have just one page to go to and you’ll always see the on air DJ’s request page. This should actually be done mid-late next week.

Mobile and Test streams
These actually don’t take long to setup I’ve just been busy but I will go into a little detail on this. The test streams will obviously be for new DJ’s coming on, for the current DJ’s to test their bandwidth etc. Not much has to be said beyond that really lol. The mobile stream will broadcast at a lower bitrate then our standard 192, Most likely around 96. This will be properly advertised on places like Tunein etc and should make it easy to find. The live stream will always be http://live.externalradio.com:8000 so if you do use tunein for your phone and you have 4G you can odds are handle 192 so plop it in your favorites and tune in anyways :) But for those still stuck on 3G, which is a lot of you, This will give you the option of still listening even on the go! :)

Hey peoples! The mobile stream will be available starting Wednesday 6/5/13 around 2:30pm PDT! Enjoy 🙂 ~Paul

Cleteus the slack-jawed yokle.
Yeah, he’s around the IRC chat room and being a total prick to everyone. So he’s already going hehe.

Minecraft Update scheduled for 23rd of June
Yes, I’m finally sitting down and doing all this hehe. On June 23rd I will be taking the minecraft server offline for a few hours to perform the full maintenance. This will open up the new spawn world, Creative world, world names, and probably respawn the ender dragon while I’m at it. I wrote a little news article about what to expect with this so go read that instead of having me repeat it. :P

Moving on
Most of this should round out Phase 2 and get us into Phase 3 within the next 2 weeks. Like TacheT said, we know it’s going a lot slower than we expected but life does suck sometimes and we want things to be right out the gate not having to redo a lot of systems as we go along, even though I’m one of those that likes to tinker so it’ll be messed with for years to come hehe.

So there is the update on things going on. Enjoy the rest of the week folks! :)

Phase 2 update and how to listen to External Radio during beta phases

Hello, all TacehT here i wanted to make sure since we are still
working with Phase 2 you guys knew how you can listen to the station
while we are still working on the website, the back end of the station
and other things connected to the station like the Mine Craft sever.
So if you want listen via web site you can go to www.externalradio.com/index
from there it gives you larger icons of different players you can use
your own player like me i use winamp, but there is many choices to
listen to.
Also so far completed in Phase 2:

Mousai is now able to take requests from twitter, irc ( irc.swiftirc.com /j #XR).
Twitter: PM @externalradio on twitter then use @find then !request the song you want.
IRC: in the irc #XR  do @find “name / artist, phase  then ! request  or web irc

Also we have more music up than before.. I personally will be changing the music out every 2 to 3 weeks to keep the tunes fresh.
the website is almost done we have a few more pages we are working on
to make sure all the information we have is correct and understandable
that way you can move around the website easy.
So what is going to be worked on? 2nd half of Phase 2 is this :
We ill be having the web player on each page once the coding gets done.
Mousai will be able to take requests from SMS(text messages that is)
Mousai brother will be in the irc channel we have open to everyone.
2 more streams will be added, one for mobile users and for testing in the background.
Also i will personalty be testing one night ( i will announce it) a life set on the stream. just have to get a day off.

So we have Phase 3 and Phase 4 i know this has been taking longer
than expected however me and Paul are perfectionists and rather
everything works properly than have you guys have to deal with  issues to kill the
mood..Also Note for you beta testers i have a prezzy i will be giving you
guys for all the help and support more will be announce with that soon!
again thank you all for the support unfs and hugs!
