As it happens, the old firewall at SLAY HQ is getting tired and from the sound of it will most likely crash any day now. The hard drive sounds like it's doing its last rounds.
There is a new firewall in place but it is not yet fully active so there might be an unexpected drop-out at some point that will last longer than I would expect.
Anyhoo, Happy Easter everyone!
May the egg be with you. :)
Healthiness for 2013 and torrent update.
Misser - 2013-01-03
To kick things of I updated the RKO 2012-Q4 torrent and also uploaded the RKO-2012 Complete torrent to Slacker. As read in my previous news item (http://www.slayradio.org/home.php?news_item=165) I also added the 2005-2006 Show torrents made by HiSpeed. These are for review purpose at the moment, see if slacker handles them and also see if they are wanted. Questions about the torrents, missing shows, corrupt files should be directed to HiSpeed on irc.
Added the mastering Swedish torrent also. It's still avaiable for download on the main download page but saves a few clicks :)
PS. HiSPeed # is not accepted by Slacker, so removed those :)
Show and torrents
Misser - 2012-12-08
Hmm CET time I should be asleep for hours it seems but I have some news. Ruud (IImmortal) is doing his 2nd live show The RetroToGO in about 14 hours. He's the latest DJ to join SLAY Radio and opted for the hard to fill time slot on Saturday.
Show Blur: Need some extra energy to get your Saturday evening started? Let me serve you a high protein mix of RetroTunes to kickstart your mind for a great Saturday night! <-- protein and kickstart? that at least makes me curious enough to listen in.
On the torrent side of things, I'm keeping up with q4 and complete 2012. Highspeed off for most IRC 'fame' has been working hard on quarterly show torrents. Downloading a few of them and checking them to see if Slacker can handle them. Meanwhile you can check out His personal SLAY Radio Shows torrents link which is his personal tracker.
Best of Commodore 64 (C64 SID) remixes 2000 - 2011
Misser - 2012-01-23
Just in time for the Roty 2011 show here is the best of 2000-2011 torrent. Let's see if high votes also mean a place in the Roty!
Jarno Beumer did it again and collected the top 10-songs published on RKO of every year and shared this compilation as a torrent so the best C64-remixes are just a few mouseclicks away for anyone.
As 2011 ended, I send a polite request wich went something like this: Hey Jarno, you lazy git it's time to wake up and update that there best of torrrent, he promptly updated his torrent 2000-2009 and added the top 10 songs of 2010-2011 as well. Not to mention he went above and beyond duty and rechecked the previous years also. You want the very best of remixed C64-songs as vote for on RKO ? Go grab the Best of Commodore 64 (C64 SID) remixes 2000 - 2011.torrent here
As usual get your latest remixes on RKO and remember to keep seeding for a while after download.
Now something different LPChip requested a full rko torrent. Which is a bit to keep updated so I'm thinking of making a RKO First Decade and Second Decade torrent. First Decade is just the complete 2000 (since it has everything before that) Second decade will be 2001-2010. Thoughts, want it? leave a comment.
Ps. I place all my torrents in a sub dir called: "RKO C64" and then named after the torrent etc. This keeps it easy to make yearly torrents from quaterly etc. And also would make it easy to make a Second Decade torrent since that would be "RKO C64\RKO-20XX Complete dirs"
Meanwhile I cleaned up the tracker a bit with input form LPCHip. Hide the quarterly torrents. They will be serviced untill absolete.
Thee-hi seems 2001-2010 is just to big to handle for Slacker. So no decade torrents in a while.
NecroPolo - rakBIT added to the rotational
Slaygon - 2011-04-05
With the kind permission of NecroPolo, I have today added his album rakBIT to the rotational.
Here's what c64audio.com says about this piece of retro goodness:
"NecroPolo has produced a stunning album which is built on a vintage prog-sound: from hard as nails to Rhodes-heaven, NecroPolo has got beneath the skin of the pieces and created something which is totally authentic to their spirit.
As if that wasn't enough, this album features the first ever C64-executable album cover, complete with classic scrolltext and the original SIDs that appear on the album, in one PRG!
And if THAT wasn't enough, this demo contains the first ever usage of a revolutionary new SID encoding format which enables any complexity of SID to be played back with minimal raster time, no matter how complex the player! Named SIDRIP, this routine was produced by Hermit specially for this demo, because pieces such as Scoll Machine or Rimrunner needed to feature in this demo, and their players were far too difficult to squeeze into a one-file demo."
R.I.P. DJ Skitz

from Remix64 by Ffrenzy:
Wednesday night, after battling with a brain tumor for about 5 years, Paul Martin Hadrill, a.k.a. DJ Skitz, passed away in his sleep surrounded by family. My condolences to each and everyone of them and i think i speak for everyone on this board that he will be sorely missed.
