To all the people who understand what we are talking about, we gladly provide you with free access to DeJamVu. Our ultimate goal is to provide an online source for sharing live music and ultimately letting others Re-Experience the Music, via DeJamVu.com.

UPDATE: The new apartment’s internet is scheduled to be activated on Saturday 9/4.

Hardware Issues

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Unfortunately the hard drive that contains all of the music for String Cheese Radio is now beginning to fail.  I have ordered a replacement but the radio will be down until the new hardware arrives and I transfer all the music (hopefully this will be possible).

I am upgrading from a single Seagate 500gb external hard drive to a

Raid 1 controller: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816142002

Containing:

2 Terabyte (1024gb) redundant drives http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136496

This will be a beneficial upgrade, although the cost is about $350.

I only hope I can transfer all 150gb of String Cheese Incident and other music before the drive completely fails.

Thank you for your understanding.

String Cheese Radio 2.0

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

If you haven’t noticed, the String Cheese Radio website (AKA Cheese.fm) has undergone a makeover. String Cheese Radio began simply as a way for me to share a large collection of live String Cheese Incident shows with fellow FOC’s that were itchin’ itchin’ itchin’ for some quality queso 24/7! It has since grown into a resource for news, band interviews, show reviews, setlists, and most recently: contest giveaways (check out this month’s contest: Keller & the Keels – Thief CD Giveaway). String Cheese Radio is growing each day with new listeners and new support from SCI Fidelity and other organizations in the cheese family. It was necessary to update this site’s design to accommodate the growing amount of SCI Fidelity related content. However, the radio stream has not been effected and is still up and running (with nearly 900 hours on the playlist).

The radio costs $35 a month to run (not including web hosting) and I want to sincerely thank those individuals who have donated to help offset the costs of running this internet radio station. Remember that a $10 contribution will get you a reserved listening slot on the server so that if the radio is ever full, you will have priority.  And don’t forget that I have free String Cheese Radio bumper stickers available.  Check ‘em out here. Something else to look forward to: String Cheese Radio tshirts! But more on that later…

Thank you for all your support over the last two years. Please continue to tune in each day and also pop over to the facebook page and say hi! Also, follow the site on twitter for live updates of the currently playing show. See you all at Horning’s Hideout!

Keep it Cheesy!
Jeremy
