Re: Moving SS32 to new Win 7 machines

I'll add that if you have to change any computer/drive/station folder names, follow the old 8 character rule. Do not use spaces. And use the fully qualified path names in dispatch. Did I see that the old pc's were Win2K? SS32 will work fine in XP. Since M$oft has quit supporting it, assume they fina...

Re: RECYCLE OLD SAT DISHES

Cover the inside with shiny tin-foil, and focus on a solar panel.
Great for grilling pheasant, also.

Re: Contactors!

You guys forgot your snowshoes, mufflers (scarves for you Southern boys), jumper cables and one shot instant start. And don't forget the lock de-icer.

Re: Browser / Java combination for ARC-16 Web access?

What used to work?
Find old PC, install appropriate OS and Java versions.
Why we never scrap old pc's that still work.
Like why I'm still employed, I'm old but still work (sorta) :wink:

Re: FCC ULS issues

Not trying to get in a flame war, but the Java issues are most likely due to incompatible versions. The version the app is written vs., the version your pc is running. That said, whoever built the app should have trapped the exception and presented a dialog for your pc. That way you could see the er...

Re: XLR Mic switch or what ?

What are you using for 'consoles' in each CR? If you have a digital system (like Wheatstone, because I've used them), the mics could be in the 'system', and brought up on a console anywhere you allow. At the very least, some sort of router that, after the mics are brought to line level, you can brin...

More TV mergers coming soon.

The FCC reversed the UHF Discount ruling, that allowed more ownership in the UHF band than the VHF. This is an old rule that was dropped after the move to digital, and some networks/station groups wanted put back so they could by more stations in a given market. The network I work for is one of thos...

Re: EO Pulsar 1KW problem

Probably a flaky capacitor in the works. You might try hitting all of the small ones with a heat gun. Or freeze spray. Or wait for the inevitable.

Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

At this point, I won't spend the time re-tagging my audio library. Now I'm writing a Java app to play the ss32 files. I got a ways to go before it's finished.
