New Web Service 

I've recently been looking into live streaming for our church services. I didn't understand where to get started. I saw tutorials for Linux and wondered if I could pull it off using Windows. Different tutorials said to use different software. So several months ago, I was quite confused and just gave up.

A few weeks ago, I stumbled on a really nice website that gives all the steps to setting up a shoutcast server in Windows. The streaming concept is pretty smart, and that's what I learned about. You use the Winamp plugin to encode the stream and it sends it out to a DNAS server. This is just a program running on a high-speed internet connection that receives the stream from the source and distributes it to clients.

So we now are capable of live streaming our church services on the web!

AJAX!!! 

Yay!!! Today I figured out how to do some AJAX. Yesterday I found a simple script that would perform an AJAX request, but I wanted something a little more in depth. I found just what I needed at

Generally, I avoid Javascript altogether. I really have no need of it and just plain don't like client-side scripting. But this AJAX stuff is pretty cool! If you have any good links or material, please post a comment.

Here's my first AJAX app. Sounds pretty nerdy! http://pksml.net/antipixel_ajax

AJAX links:

Code-Bin Update 

Here's what I'm working on to improve the codebin:

Here's my post from a year ago:

3. Make a search feature. (difficult)
--Would be able to search by topic, type of code, poster...
Still working on this one... (Yes, I know it won't be THAT difficult)

5. Stop bots from rating the scripts. (easy - I think!)
-- Search engines go to every link they find, and thus rate one script 8 times, leaving an average of 4.5. They do that to this blog too. Arrrggghhh!
DONE. It was simple


Other updates:
1. A favicon.ico!!! Like it?
2. Implemented GeSHi, a syntax highlighter
3. Support for many more types of code
4. Cool web buttons on the left column

Make your own buttons --> http://pksml.net/antipixel_ajax

New Code-Bin URL 

The Code-Bin now has a new URL!

http://code-bin.homedns.org



I thought the old URL was a little long. :tongue:

Both the old and new URLs are completely functional.

Thanks to those who have posted so far!
