Radio2 volunteers

  • A picture named couch.gifFrom time to time I get questions from people who want to set up Radio2 servers who are having trouble, are highly motivated, but it really isn't something they should do. I'm learning that running a server, like a lot of things, requires a temperment that most people don't have -- no matter how much they may want to do it. But it would be great if these people had Radio2 accounts somewhere. Then we could develop utilities to download their archives locally. This is a lovely little project I've been meaning to get to. If we had some users who needed it, it would actually make it easier to write.
  • Anyway, all this is preamble to this question -- If you're already running a Radio2 server, would you be willing to let someone else virtually crash on your couch? Radio servers probably can host several hundred users, if not more. It's a pretty lightweight server app.
  • Anyway, reply here with a comment if you already have a server and are willing to volunteer for this.
  • I think it can be a good experience for everyone.
