About an hour of weird journey, consider yourselves warned!!

What is the licensing model for Off The Hook?

Once it's aired, is it CC, who owns the rights?

Basically, I'm asking what's up if I were to rebroadcast it weekly on a stream?

:crash: The_Gibson :crash: boosted

hackers.town radio is now streaming at...

hackers.town:2600

adjust your dials accordingly.

changing some ports peeps...

radio will be down for 2 minutes.

ok,

So we are beginning to see the fall of Facebook... it's going to be a slow moving disaster, but the foundation is crumbling, and this baby is coming down...

Now we need to address copyright.

When I started playing around with the idea of a radio station last week, I thought CC artists, because I can't afford a licsense... now I am faced with how many high quality artist are in CC licensing frameworks...

hackers.town:2600 is going to stand for the future that was lost.

As in all things we are going to restore the future. In this case, this means supporting only artists that release content in CC as they are taking risks and have skin in the game of bringing about the future we were once promised... with their art and their work.

You have my respect and dedication.

@loke @thegibson @djsundog @gdkar (I'm so dating myself with these useless trivia facts. LOL!)

It did, actually. It was the last version of Windows to support real mode. Windows 3.1 was actually the first version to ship without real-mode support. You could invoke Windows in real-mode via WIN /R command at the DOS prompt.

Another fun fact: Windows 3.1 was the first version of Windows to ship with virtual machine support (so-called "386-enhanced" mode).

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
