|[ 05-05-01 ] Todays Newz "Hi
Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well we're back to
normal, and the first full broadcast after Mekka went nice and smoothly. Hoepfully the
next show will be streamed at 2 bitrates - a lot of people have asked for this, so we
shall provide! This show also sees the first of the CFXWeb partnership. From now on, CFXWeb will be providing us with news & info from the
coding side of the scene. They have their own page here on the HaVoK for every show, and
you can find todays page right here, or it's
linked on the archive page here. We also had Stef
of Cryonics live on the show via our Netmeeting hub, something we will be doing a lot more
of in the following shows! If you missed the live show (why!), grab the archives and
|[ 03-05-01 ] Todays Newz "Putting
some more stuff on..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Another quick bit of
news for you all. The HaVoK is now an official mirror of the Hugi website! You don't know
what Hugi is? Damn! Click here quick, then! Anyways,
next show is in 2 days time, we've got lots of ideas and news to tell you, so don't forget
to tune in. Oh, and ofcoz, if you're a scener and you need some help with
organising/hosting/publicity etc, contact us
right now - we can help!
|[ 25-04-01 ] Todays Newz "Screwed
it up again..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Just a short news
item today. For everyone that tried to download the Ghandy &
Zito interview from the last show archive, the
link has now been fixed. Apologies for that, must have missed it in the rush! The
streaming link did work ok though, so I guess it wasnt too much of a problem. Anyway, all
fixed now, and in future if anyone spots a bad link, please email us so we can fix it! Thanks!
|[ 22-04-01 ] Todays Newz "All
that luvverly bandwidth..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well, 2 great bits of
news to report today. Firstly, we hit a record number of listeners on yesterday's show -
38 people tuned in, and even more keep asking for the archived broadcast! Thats great
news, so a big thank you to all the people who helped make this radio show great, and to
all our listeners who support us! Secondly, I'm pleased to announce that the archives will
be back online shortly! With much respect to our very own technical dude Allodox, we now
have plenty of webspace and bandwidth to serve the shows on demand. It's all good here at
the HaVoK! Finally we've recieved another offer to redesign our website, so expect great
things coming soon! Anyway, thats all the news I have for now, I'm off to get those
archives back online :)
|[ 20-04-01 ] Todays Newz "We
all up in this..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- I've just received
the bulk of the MS party reports from our super kewl management, and I'm pleased to
announce that after a 3 week delay, the next show will be on Saturday! We will be removing
the normal show content (scene news, tech news etc) just for this show, so there will be
no delay in bringing the news :) Oh, one thing - Makke has a short religious experience
this week. Listen out for it at the end of the show :)
|[ 05-04-01 ] Todays Newz "Don't
you just love honesty..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well, here's a turn
up for the books. After the 17-03-01 show, Yes of Orange Juice/Nectarine Radio contacted
me, and proposed a cross-over of the 2 scene radio stations - The HaVoK & Nectarine. I
told him I was interested, and I would discuss it with the rest of the HaVoK management. I
was then unable to contact him for a week or 2. Meantime, Yes gets in contact with Clary,
and after an interesting conversation, informs her that he will be
running a news show on his own! Well, Yes, I have the logs of that conversation, and I
guess we will see what happens. But it's always good to know that scene friendship rules.
Remember, there is only one LIVE scene radio show! A brief message
to Yes - we know why you backed out, I would suggest you email or /msg me. The
HaVoK will always be here :) [ HaVoK - Since 1992 ]
|[ 18-03-01 ] Todays Newz "Rock
you over make the building shake..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Our first show on the
new uplink, and it went great! Ok, we had a minor delay while Allodox booted the server,
but aside from that we had a truly skip-free, mofo-smooth broadcast! dRiFT & Randal
provided the usual hardware-breaking fun, and we achieved yet another world first - we
spoke live on the air to Makke in Sweden and Allodox in the Netherlands! We also announced
our partnership with Modplug radio, and hinted at much more to come. The show went really
well, even though we didn't really have a clue what we wanted to talk about. Gotta fix
that. Unbelievably, we're actually starting to sound professional! Keep coming back guys,
we're gonna get bigger and better!
|[ 10-03-01 ] Todays Newz "I'm
sorry mz jackass..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- GREAT NEWS! Yes, we have some amazing news. The HaVoK is no
longer using the commercial Live365 servers that gave us so much trouble! With much thanks
to Allodox, our resident ISprovider guy, we now have a sexy 100meg
uplink in the Netherlands! We've spent the last week configuring & setting up
the server & stream configurations, and it all works wonders now. We can GARANTEE that there are no source streaming problems, so if you
have problems listening in (mainly modem users), click here for instructions to increase
your buffer size! No more adverts, no commercials, just pure scene. Allodox - you da man
|[ 04-03-01 ] Todays Newz "I'm
sorry mizz jackson..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Wow, I've been
really bad with the website updates. 2 reasons for that, firstly Exo Design will be
re-designing the pages, and secondly I've been farrrr too busy! But, we've had plenty of
good news. We've been asked for a partnership with another radio station, there will be
more news on that soon, and we have also been offered one mofo amount of bandwidth &
advertising to improve the station. So, things are looking really good! Go listen to
yesterdays broadcast, if you didn't manage to catch it live (why? you don't know what
you're missing!), and keep checking back here for the latest news! Thanks for your
|[ 19-02-01 ] Todays Newz "I'm
sorry mizz jackson..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- 4th show over,
and the station is really taking off. We had a nice high listener count through the whole
show (even after the show finished!), and generally the opinion is all our technical
problems have been solved. However we're still working on fixing
Zirjin's cat pressing the STOP button :) Message to spacecake:
I got your /msg, sorry I wasn't around! Drop me an email, and that goes for everyone else
too - the link is on the left. Finally, I'm looking for opinions and ideas. The interview
with Vention was a real ground-breaker, and I want to do more of the same. All suggestions
|[ 05-02-01 ] Todays Newz "Slippin
through the fog..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well the dNT
show was a great sucess, and the feedback has been really good. I think we're finding our
spot :) Anyway, just a little bit of news to say the archives are now 100% online, with
the full broadcast downloadable as RealAudio and MP3. I really recommend you listen to
Adok's "Demoscene Style" section, he's got some important things to say. Thats
why it's available as a seperate download! Ok guys, send us mail with your ideas &
|[ 26-01-01 ] Todays Newz "Nate
Dogg & Warren G have to regulate..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- We're building
up to the next show now, and we're going to bring you the greatest ever Scene Quiz.
Crammed full of Amiga, PC, Scene, Hardware & Software questions, you'll have to listen
in live & get on our private IRC servers to take part! Keep your eyes on the site,
because you don't want to miss out on this one :) More information will be available here,
& publicised on CFXWeb & OJuice next week!
|[ 21-01-01 ] Todays Newz "We
got 5 on it..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well the long
awaited second show is over, and the feedback was good. People seem to be really happy
with what we do, despite the technical difficulties we've been having. Those will be
sorted out soon tho! Apologies to everyone who tried to download the
Adok Scene News slot last night, the upload was corrupt. Thanks to Solorize for
pointing that out to me - its all fixed now! Ok guys, keep checking the website, and give
us your news & views - we'll be back in 2 weeks as the old dNT amiga team reunites to
bring you one crazy-ass show :)
|[ 19-01-01 ] Todays Newz "Back
once again with the renegade masta..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- As promised,
and by public demand, we'll be back again! Some extra special features this week - not
only do we have dRiFT & Randal in the studio, we've got a webcam & phone-in center
for you to leave your messages! Only a short news item, as I'm still working on the setup
for tomorrow - lots to do :) Can't let any secrets out yet, but you can expect all the
usual high-quality information, and a return by our favourite europeans - Makke, Clary
& Fury! Speak to you soon ;)
|[ 13-01-01 ] Todays Newz "This
is how we do it!."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- It's all over!
The first broadcast has been sent, and the feedback so far has been really great. This is
only a short news item, just while I upload the broadcasts to the archives, so if you
missed the show then check it out here. Remember,
the archives only contain the actual slots, they don't have the music or jingles with them
- for the full atmosphere tune in live! See you all next week, when dRiFT & Randal
will be joining me in the studio!
|[ 07-01-01 ] Todays Newz "Mama,
who da man?..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- We've
completed our sucessful tests, and thanks to East all the levels are set, my mixer doesn't
work, and we're ready to screw up our first broadcast! Ofcoz, we need more Personal &
Group news, so email it to us here. More
submissions & slots are coming in, but we need many, many more! Some crazy advertising
should help a bit :) Want to speak to us? Come to Efnet #havokradio, and we'll be there
(at least until some lamah takes it over ;) More partners arriving soon, keep looking at
the links on the right hand side, and check The Scene link on the left to see the latest
sites we're hosting. If you're a scener, and want somewhere to host your site, then
|[ 03-01-01 ] Todays Newz "No
diggity, no doubt..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- HNY 2k1! And,
uhoh, first hitch in the proceedings. I just lost my laptops hd. Completely dead. Thats
not good. But, your faithful sysop remembered the first rule of Windoze - back everything
up. Twice. So I've been rebuilding for the last 2 days, and you'll be happy to know we're
pretty much up and working. Other good news, I now have a second laptop to do the
processing for the station on. This means more lame sound effects, and less lame
post-production! It also means a pile of cables, & I have no idea where they all go.
Portable, my ass! Oh, also we are pleased to announce our support for the Scenester project. The Gaffer will be here to tell you more!
|[ 22-12-00 ] Todays Newz "I
wonder if Heaven's got a Ghetto..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Well it's more
good news. I have the pleasure of announcing that Hugi Scenemag
has pledged their support to us! A link will be appearing to your right shortly. So, many
thanks to Adok for the news item! If you've come here because
of the article - thanks! As above, the first broadcast will be 13-01-2001.
If you want to get on the show and have your say, then click the Submit link on the left,
over there. Yep. That one! It's a Scene radio station, so we kinda need sceners on here,
no? ;) Other news, my leased line has turned into a
no-holds barred joke - I got an application for a dialup account in the post yesterday.
Whaaaaa... One swift call l8r and it was sorted. Makes me wonder about what I have to look
|[ 18-12-00 ] Todays Newz "If
it aint about you, it don't apply - let it fly..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Ok the domain
is registered, the crew is briefed and we're getting ready for January. I'm working on the
delivery system right now, whilst the faithful scene heroes are sorting their broadcasts.
I was canvassing for more contributions yesterday, when I spoke to a certain guy on IRC.
He seemed the right guy for the part I had in mind, but he wouldn't do it. Personal
reasons meant he wanted payment. Shame, but I know he's come back to check out how it's
going. We'll try and turn the scene back to how it used to be - free and for enjoyment,
never for profit.
|[ 10-12-00 ] Todays Newz "Izzy
wizzy lets get busy..."
|Entry by -dEF bASE- Loads to
report today! Just getting the basic page up and designed - seems to be going pretty well.
My leased line installation has been delayed until Jan 5th, even tho' I was promised it
before Xmas! Oh well, at the least the go-live date for the station can be set. I'll be
doing that soon. Getting more submissions for slots on the station - click the Email link
to contact us and get on the air! Meantimes, just hold on and keep checkin back to the
