Ideas, technology and the occasional rant

Tuesday, May 19, 2009 closes the deal

This is old news for most, and I wanted to post this sooner: on April 22nd, killed all free radio outside of the US, UK and Germany.
This sucks for, because we lose a lot of the motivation we had to work on it. One of the great things about is the fact that it worked everywhere. Now you need a subscription, which is not expensive, but it's still money. Most people I know won't pay for it. Too bad.
We'll continue working on it, but now it's just not as exciting. An update is necessary because there's still plenty to fix. I'm meaning to spend some time on it. Soon. However, I think we won't go far from what we currently have. will probably stay pretty much the same for its remaining lifetime.
You suck, record labels. Your time is coming, you bet it is.

Moving on

Some 3 weeks ago, I stopped working full time for Glaxstar. I decided to move on and try to be on my own for a while; see where my imagination takes me. I'll continue doing some work for Glaxstar every now and then, but I'm mostly focusing on my own projects now.
I'm so picky when it comes to actually starting something on my own. I don't like doing what everyone else is doing, so that makes things difficult. All my ideas so far involve some sort of open source project that is very likely to produce next to nothing monetarily. And I kinda like it like that...
Perhaps the Add-ons Contributions update will save me. We'll see. For now, I'll focus on silly projects and Mario Galaxy. I love that game.
