live stream radio station

Any recommendations for live streaming a radio show to a website?
May also need a studio webcam as well.
New client and I have no experience of this at all.
Anyone ever done anything similar?


what does everyone think?


Rant of the Day

I will start with this excellent one from Deathboy:
"i hate the apple fanboys that act like 13 yr girls at a bieber show. like uh this is my favorite ooooh noooo this is my favorite this is the really bestiest best in the whole world. lalalala i can't hear u it's the best you're a hater, and your sooo jelly.
apple. meh whatever. theyre good at using every logical fallacy and psych maneuver to manipulate people who would rather not have the responsibility of shopping around, or learning about specs, OS, thinking in general and turning them into consumer whores in a closed system. I'd say that lazy 13 yr old self obsessed hysterical girl mentality is there greatest success.
My only grief is I think Apple is bad for people. Nothing positive about it. Turns people into uniform consumer whores. Killed the webs creativity with killin flash. And really the deceptive advertising. I've always believed advertising should be a trade off of entertainment for your watching time. Not preachy bible guilt ridden, political ad campaign, but well executed styles. The hyperbole of it all is insane, its like watching a insane church rallying with a healer saying devil be gone and people chanting. There methods are excellent but i disagree with them, but im a free market guy so whateva. As long as competition doesnt dumb shit down to their levels too much or force U2 on me im like meh whatever the crazy kids will one day grow up. And better if the peopel agaisnt apple not to get involved. Its like if a parent tells their girl Bieber sucks and is a fuckin tool. They'll just love him that much more. ... which is probably why they use such hyperbole...fuckers"

Wordpress basic cart

I need a basic cart for wordpress. v.simple just need 2 products but with inventory (well stock levels). I am using a simple cart that doesn't even have stock levels on it but v.good apart from that.
Just need a basic one - not woocommerce or anything that tries to do everything and gives client too many options - too bloaty for my needs. And don't want to spend the next 2 days customising the endless forms and pages associated with woo. Just need product - add to cart - pay via paypal. Simples.
Any ideas anyone?


Lets all give QBN a round of applause

Considering this site design is so ancient it has stood the test of time and I am still happy (well not happy) to come here everyday. Nicer to look at than Facebook and that has billions of users.


web design / dev podcasts

Any recommendations?


Best free code editor Windows

Any recommendations?
I am mac generally so not sure whats out there these days and laptop is useful now and again as its super lightweight and battery lasts forever. Why did I feel the need to justify my use of Windows?


eLearning / LMS - mobile friendly

Anyone have any experience of creating a mobile friendly LMS website?
I was going to use an LMS plugin with Wordpress but they want quite a high level of interactivity in the course materials.
Does anyone has any experience with this type of thing and/or recommendations.
Needs to be responsive as will be primarily mobile based.


Wordpress / Squarespace

I am doing a portfolio for my father in law who is an artist (painter).
I am looking for something like this:…
However I am hosting it and want to use Wordpress - I could do it from scratch but really don't have the time due to crazy client deadlines - just need a nice full screen Wordpress folio theme like the above - any recommendations?
Thanks in advance :)


Illustrator generative/geometric plugins?

Anyone know of any plugins / actions etc. for Illustrator that allow you to generate geometric patterns / generative code style stuff.
I know its all doable with the standard Illy features but is there anything out there to make it easier.
Preferably with random functions etc.
I have played with Processing but this is for print artwork so would prefer to do it all in within Illustrator.



I am going to Berlin with girlfriend in Feb.
I have been before but girlfriend hasn't.
Any recommendations on hotels, nightlife, shopping, museums etc. would be great. We won't be doing any of the great clubs as she's pregnant! but will go out as much as possible.
I loved it last time but was a while ago and have forgotten district names.
Is Mitte a good base to stay?
Loved a lot of the smaller galleries last time.
Whats good currently?



Considering signing up, anyone used this much?


Digital Downloads

Does anyone know of a jQuery and/or Wordpress plugin that enables a page with a list of digital files. These can be ticked, then prior to downloading the users details are taken in a simple form and on submit the ticked files are downloaded (or link is sent to files zipped).
I know this is probably a custom job - just trying to save time on it if there is something like this already built?


QBN sidebar?

Not loading? anyone else getting this on chrome / mac? rest of pages loads apart from right sidebar - click on any other linkand it appears just before loading new page. Its like the hosting is poor - whole site does seem slower? Anyone else?


Dreamweaver CC

Save your time with the attacks on DW, I have to use it today.
I am in DWCC and its way more sluggish than any other version I have used.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I am on iMac OSX10.8.5
Will upgrading to Mavericks help? Been putting that off because of CC issues.
I cannot work like this - everything takes an age.


Camera advice?

I am going to treat myself to a camera for Christmas.
I will be mainly shooting video (would like 1080 60fps feature if poss.) but photos also.
I am looking at Gopro Hero 3+ but it has a fixed focus I think? No autofocus? May be wrong.
Would I better getting a compact DSLR?
if so what would yo recommend?
I only want to spend about £400.
Gopro quality was v.impressive but as I want to take the odd photo as well I am not sure whether it is the best option.


Archives on websites

I am about to design the front end for a large archive on a site - all types of media, images, vids etc.
I am thinking of using isotope masonry with filters.
Just wondering if anyone has any nice and/or unusual examples of archives on websites.
Thanks in advance.
