More Generic Radio

I finally took the time tonight to type up the playlist for this show as I noted in my original Generic Radio post. You can find the playlist under the Audio section of the site. It’s worth a read because I quickly tell the story of how Ed and I met and you can also see what a complete dork I was back in HS, even if I still am now.

I doubt there’d be much demand for it, but it would be kinda cool to put together a podcast of this show, complete with my horrible DJ banter. Of course, I could always just play the tunes and update the talk in between the tunes.

Nah, you don’t want your ears to bleed.

Generic Radio

There was a time when I thought this might be my first post. Around the time I was building Ed’s blog, I was digging thru some old stuff and found an old Memorex tape.

I don’t remember what I was looking for now, but I am glad I found this tape. I must have taken ownership of it at some point over the years from my Uncle Chris. It is labeled “Generic Radio 12-23-87” and it is probably the only recording in existence of a radio show I did in high school with my friend Johnny B.

John and I had a show on Rockland’s community/high school station WRPS 88.3 FM on Wednesday from 5-7pm. So, it was very small-time and definitely not like a Saved By the Bell thing either. I am shocked there was enough juice for my uncle to get that tuned in as far away as Milton MA. The iPod car transmitters probably have more juice these days.

Christmas time in 87 would have been my Junior year in high school and I think by that point we had been doing the show for almost two months. I ended up doing... Continue reading »

I H8 Routers

As you may remember from last time, I had to download some new firmware for my router so that the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live (XBL) would play nice with it. I sort of made the leap from that to having had to buy a new router to make it do right. Here’s what went down.

So, I hit up the support page on the D-Link site and fill in for the DI-784. I get back a page with a bunch of crap that isn’t very relevant to my model, but since it is just confusing enough, I click on a link that seems to indicate what I want is there. What I got was a nice fat 500 Server Error for some Taiwanese domain. Excellent!

I easily found the Tech Support link to send an e-mail though. Funny how that goes… anyway, I started this nice little chain with those helpful folks “Building Networks for Peopleâ€... Continue reading »
