Rip streamed audio

Problem
You want to rip a streamed radio.

Solution

  • fetch StreamRipStar, which is a frontend for streamripper
  • install streamripper (via apt-get)
  • configure StreamRipStar, specify the audio stream’s URL and start ripping

Tip
If you want to rip Slay Radio (best Commodore 64 tunes!), use this address: http://relay3.slayradio.org:8000/.

I watched the following video with watery eyes. Good old Commodore 64, best machine ever…

 

If I got it right, it’ll be a modified Ubuntu distro.

Glider Rider

April 18, 2011 Leave a comment

Glider Rider is one of my favorite tunes on SLAY Radio. Among the several remixes, I prefer the Makke version the most. This song is like a time machine, brings me back to the ’90s when we were listening to Marusha, Dune, Scooter, Prodigy, etc. Today it’s “old school rave”. Damn, time is passing…


Lyrics: (from here)

As we sail across the sky
No longer visible to the eye
We are free from reality
We are the ones you cannot see

Keep on gaining altitude
Higher and higher, me and you
Until the Earth is a bright blue dot
Until each other is all we’ve got

Glider rider in the sky
Take me with you for a while
Life is so hard to live down here
Take me with you way up there

Glider rider in the sky
Take me with you for a while
Life is so hard to live down here
Take me with you way up there

Keep on gaining altitude
Higher and higher, me and you
Until the Earth is a bright blue dot
Until each other is all we’ve got

Glider rider in the sky
Take me with you for a while
Life is so hard to live down here
Take me with you way up there

Glider rider in the sky
Take me with you for a while
Life is so hard to live down here
Take me with you way up there

Play with Amiga classics

February 16, 2011 2 comments

This entry is based on this post (in Hungarian).

At the website of The Company, you can download classic Amiga games (for free). There is a huge advantage: each game is bundled with an emulator, so all you have to do is download an .exe and launch it. That’s all, you can play right away. They add new games regularly, and you can also ask games in the forum.

When I was a child, I had a Commodore 64, we couldn’t afford an Amiga at that time. Now, 20 years later I can finally play these games :)

Some favorites of mine:
