I thought I`d write a quick blog entry on the upcoming project that is in the works. As you all probably know, this website, the stream and all other services that are provided here are available for free. We do offer subscriptions to help fund the cost of hosting, licensing and all associated costs. Its not cheap at all!
As a gesture of appreciation to those that have donated $5, I am currently implementing a secondary stream th
Obviously way too early to celebrate yet - You may have noticed and outage today on the Broadcast. What happened? All I can say is that some SSDs have been installed alongside other "secret" hardware.
I have been wracking my brains for years now on how the stream can be more useful - I am shying away from calling it entertainment. After all you are listening to other peoples' misery and sometimes even loss. To me it is a tool that used correctly can be quite power
If you ever wanted to know what powers the broadcasts, read on. I unfortunately did not have time to go into too much detail, but you can always open a support ticket if you would like to find out more information.

While about 75% of my time had been spent over the last year developing content optimized for the notebook and desktop, I have been spending about 20% on making sure that users get an ab
My current internet is with Telstra Bigpond on Cable one terabyte a month. Lately there have been a lot of dropouts on the broadcast due to some unknown network fault on the internet side.
So what happened? It seems like from a network engineers point of view, that one of the core routers was malfunctioning. All the evidence certainly pointed to it. While my internet speed was more than enough bandwidth wise:
As you ca
The time has come to take that extra step in making the streaming service more interactive.
The new service can be reached under www.grn.audio - nice and short URL which is easy to remember. You will also need to append the port number 5000 to the end of that URL. Once you are on that site, you will see plenty of interactive information. The most interesting though, will be the scanner display. It changes and updates exactly as it appears on my scanner.
