The RealVideo version of the webcast
has been down for a couple of days, because the folks who have been generously providing RealVideo hosting for us for free for all these years just upgraded their end to Helix 11.1, and apparently it doesn't like talking to RealProducer 8.5. I downloaded the Linux version of RealProducer Basic 11.1, but all the command-line arguments have changed, and so far I can't make it go.
Anyone know how to use this thing?
I wonder if anyone is actually watching the Real stream any more, now that there's a Flash version via Justin.tv. I think the Real version is better quality, but it's certainly less convenient. (I don't have access to any server logs that could answer this question for me.)
Let's say you have an RSS feed
and some consumers of it would prefer full entries of text/html
content, but some would prefer full entries of text/plain
content. Is the thing to do to put the text/plain
and the text/html
? Or will that cause some consumers to "accidentally" display the text/plain
when they should be displaying the text/html
Or should the two fields be <content> and <content:encoded> instead? (Does <content> even exist?) All the documentation says <description> should be an abbreviated summary, but I see nothing that talks about how to achieve that which MIME calls multipart/alternative.
(Just trusting the text/plain consumers to strip the tags out of the HTML to display it is suboptimal; the two versions should be formatted slightly differently to be most readable.)
Update: Ok, I changed the feed to contain both text/plain and text/html versions. Please try that in your favorite feed reader, and let me know if it screws up. A screw-up would be: it's showing you plain text when it could be showing you HTML.
Please enjoy jwz mixtape 062
. Two of the songs on this mixtape steal shamelessly from other songs. Can you spot them? Also, some robots.

Current Music: as noted
we had twenty-seven
bands play here, from noon until midnight. That's definitely a record. And, as it turns out, one of those bands -- the third one, Emilia's Rose
-- is the 600th band to play at DNA Lounge since we re-opened in 2001! That's somewhat approximate, of course, since it's based on what's on our calendar, and there are sometimes last-minute lineup changes that I don't know about. And we quibble about the distinction between "band" and "dj". But hey, 600 bands, that's kind of a lot
I didn't realize this before the show because I didn't actually get the lineup of the bands who would be playing until halfway through the event...
It was also our youngest event to date: something like 87% of the people who attended were under 21. (We track this by counting the wristbands we give to drinkers, so it is also somewhat approximate.)
A video in this post has disappeared. If you know of an accessible version of this video
, please mail me
so that I can update this post.
It is 1pm.
The temperature is 43.7 degrees.
I object in the strongest possible terms.
Yes, I know many of you are in colder places.
And it's up hill both ways.
Thanks, that's a really good story.
