Pandora’s box closes to the UK

Pandora the custom internet radio company, will be blocking the UK from accessing the station as of the 15th of Jan 08. This is due to licensing issues with the music companies not going well. The UK was the only country out side the US that was able to get the system and there was some thought that the UK would let the add based company stream there radio. But this is not to be the case. There is also concern that the station might be forced off the wires in the US as well in the future. If you haven’t used Pandora before I urge you to have a look before you are unable to again.

Yet another nail in the media revolution coffin. Lets hope Jobs will cheer every one up next week.


The lost casts guys are back on the wire just before series 4 starts to air in the US. Cant wait to hear more from them. Also I just wanted to link this guy not that he isn’t popular enough or that linking him here will help. Johnny has done some really cool projects over the years more recently he has done alot with the Wii Mote that mos people will have seen all over the net. but I think that some of his other projects are of possibly greater note have a look.

I have also recently moved to another new server with more power and before it was really commissioned we purchased its replacement well this server will become a fail over node but that isn’t important. And we are now running ISPCP in anger. we have had to make several changes to the system to make it work the way we need and want it to but nothing to dramatic.  More info on ISPCP issues to follow.

How stupid have I been?

I don’t believe it… I have very stupidly deleted the data from this site all that hard work… ow well will just have to start again. This is what happens when you don’t have your SQL databases in a good order as I hadn’t I was running many tables for multiple sites from one database with the tables not labeled properly then when I came to do some house keeping I deleted it all. well I have now reorganized all the data and wont do it again. In fact it gives me the chance to make a clean start.
