Microsoft employees and Microsoft's own political action committee has given $22,900 to Smith's re-election campaign. SURPRISE SURPRISE!!!!

We were basically too lazy to come up with the questions, and the last expo we were at drained out prize closet of Tradeshow SWAG! Any vendor wanting to ship us appropriate SWAG should email to

Segment Two- Linux Do It Yourself Project- A Kick Ass Raid Stream Server

OK, so this is the third time we have tried to get to this segment and have not had the time. The last few shows ran over and so tonight we are trying this one again. This is the basic hardware set up of the Radio Free Universe project that is being co-developed by Geekcast (our company) and Radio Paradise in California.

For those interested in participating in the project, and for those who are just interestd in streaming, we are kicking this off by publishing the notes on the physical buildout of the server. Over the next several weeks, interested parties can follow the project and end up with their own kick ass streaming server.

Parts list and details for the project are available at our web site.
