Don't bytch about the problem , try being part of the solution.

So got off air and for shyts and giggles bummed another computer and listened in on yesterdays show. As usual the feud of software between my computer and's continues. As long as I play programming out of external sources such as my tape decks etc it sounds super, but use the track player that pulls pieces from my computer and interfaces with the damn thing echos. I had that problem once with Spreaker in Evanston, Wyoming, to the point that one of their people finally called me and we tried for days to fix the problem. Seems as though the unheard thing here is you need to have a battery of computers to stream on  (.) Now if this were the case say like on I would agree, yet this was not the problem on Livestream, I never had an echo on Livestream. So why doesn't admit there's a problem, and go in and rewrite software to solve the problem? But that's only part of the situation. And its rampant all over FakeBook. For every topic on there, you will find maybe if your lucky 1 or two possible solutions, the rest will be from people who only know how to bytch, yet have no answer or solution to the problem your having. I've seen this on all kinds of groups and or pages. Some service tech asks for a bit of tech help, fixing a truck, maybe two have an answer, the rest on there just want to joke or insult the guy needing help. My parents, grandparents and all used to say if ya'll can't say something nice or beneficial, shut the heck up. As for the stations sound, yes I know it needs help, going through a different system like say Live365, might help, but I looked at their set up, and it was a nightmare to set up. Where-as when I set up Spreaker, it took maybe an hour, and I was on air. Now to be fair to Spreaker, yes it is their problem, but I had it nearly cured prior to the move here to Wendell Idaho from Evanston Wyoming. During the move Ole Bessie and radio gear did get bounced around a bit, settings went askew and I have had problems since. Not to mention the turtles speed IP connection. Time to call in experts, hey I fix motorcycles and tow, I'm not a computer geek.
As I close this morning; I noticed something last night before I went to bed. As I turned completely off my tiny laptop, and the wifi CenturyLink Modem stopped flashing for a few seconds then started up. With my computer off, no traffic should have been the condition, and as such no flashing on the modem from CenturyLink. With it flashing I knew someone was piggy backing or hacking my wifi, and using it for themselves. Now you may say hey , " You did that with your lady racing friend in Gooding" Yes I did, but I first told her I was, two I helped pay for her service and three did chores to help her. So it wasn't like I was stealing it. That said someone in my neighborhood is plundering my wifi, which is fine, but they're going to be tweaked when it goes silent in two and a half weeks, guess they'll have to get their own. Now you may ask do you have proof of their plundering? Yes and no, can I point to the culprit? No. But seems when certain neighbors are in Church, in bed or at school my speed increases, however when the rug rats and porch monkeys are at home and awake and they're stuck inside my bandwidth and speed decreases. Don't take Sherlock Holmes to figure it out.
So in close to those on Internet places on FakeBook and others, am I aware the network streams sound like crap, but we are working hard to fix the malady, and instead of bytch, elect to help fix. 
See Ya'll on air at 09:00 MST
