now and the foreseeable future, thanks to AutoDJ! (beep, beepity boop)
Ok. Probably going to keep it like this for a while. I figure that a 15 hour playlist, changed every 5 days, will let you listen at the same time for 3 hours, and hear something different every day. If the model's correct. So I'll try to upload 15 fresh hours every 5 days and we'll see if this thing can work. Keeping it fed should be interesting.
Next step-- the "Now Playing" widget!

Here's what it did to Mr F Le Mur's "Andy of Bug Porn #10"
And here is a handy link to more Le Mur.
Update: It's an Audacity feature called "scrubbing" and it's found on Audacity 2.1.3, under "transport".
If your mouse has a scroll wheel, you can speed or slow the playback. Wild wacky stuff.

The Action Signal Tape
Update: well, if you're interested-- I tried putting it on the desktop computer a week ago and it's crashed 3 times. We're back on the laptop now, where it lived for the first month.
Scaling back a little: not a 24/7 feed, more like a radio show, with me putting something together every day at about the same time. The hours will be announced over there on the right.

Aiming for 162 hours in the program base; there's 168 hours in a week, so this cycle would repeat 6 hours earlier every week. In other words, you could tune in every day at the same time for a month and listen for 6 hours before it repeated.
If I can replenish all 162 hours in that month, you'll never hear something played within 6 hours of its last play. And no more than 4 plays per item.
A lofty goal. About 5.75 new hours of programming every day. Ok, that's probably not going to happen. Unless I can do this for a living. (Hmm. Shouldn't that be, replacing a week of programming every week? Not taking a week to replace a month. Or a month to...dang it. We need to model this one.)
Anyway, the next step is to find 123 more hours of programming. Listen on, if you like it. Going to be a lot of the same stuff for a while, until the library attains critical mass.
