Happy Holidays

General NewsHope you all have some time to relax and get ready for the next year, hoping to finish my next first update to the site and finally get the song upload online.
I've been working fulltime and studying at the same time which kinda has eaten all my spare time.

Changes #5

General NewsHappy Eurovision weekend :)

So far I have managed to fix the request page issue that prevent from listing some of the songs and requesting them.
Also did some tweaking around the site and added more storage space to the server.
The song upload feature is not yet ready, hoping to get it done by next weekend. It will work with browsers and you can upload either individual songs or whole albums in zip format.
Ah and we are now ready for the future, added IPV6 support to the site.

Changes #3

General NewsGreetings from Europe,

With massive help from Armitage the new server is up and running. The music collection is currently very limited, but I'll be uploading songs from my own collection once my fileserver is online. And submissions from listeners are welcome too. Details on where and how to upload them will be posted later.

Thank you Armitage for keeping this site and community running all these years, I'll keep the site alive as long as I can.

Changes #2

General NewsHi All,

Just a bit of an update. The new server is pretty much complete and we will begin the process of transitioning ownership of the website starting this coming weekend. Please be aware that the site and stream will be unavailable for periods of time during the transition. You will continue to access the site at the same URL as always, but some of the relay addresses will be different.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time of transition.

-Armi

Big Changes Coming

General NewsHi all,

I've got some news to share with you. In 2016, the laws in the US changed regarding the costs associated with licensing for internet broadcasters. You can read all about those changes here:

http://www.radiosurvivor.com/2016/01/...t-in-2016/

What this means to us is that to be compliant, Armitunes must pay a licensing fee based on the number songs streamed to each listener in the US. At the time of this writing, that figure is approximate $1500 USD per month at the new 2016 rates. We have already been contacted regarding compliance and risk legal action if we do not pay the licensing fees.

As a free, non-ad supported radio, it is not possible to cover the cost of licensing. This leaves a few options including geo-blocking all US-based listeners, or ceasing streaming altogether. Because listeners in the US account for at least half of the site's traffic, I have decided geo-blocking isn't a good option.

What we are left with, then, is to cease streaming. The stream will be terminated within the next 30 days. After that, the website and domain will be transferred in their entirety to Raychan, who will have the option of bootstrapping the stream with his own music library and taking over all ownership and operations of the site. For legal purposes, our existing music library will not be shared.

What this means for you is that the site and steam will be down for an unknown period of time. When the site returns under Raychan's direction, your user accounts, messages, etc. will all be preserved. Your favorites list will be intact, but the songs may no longer be available for request.

What can you do to help? Check out this petition to oppose the copyright board's decision to increase rates for low/no income webcasters:

https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/...-1733.html

Thank you all for being members of the Armitunes community throughout the years. I am touched and humbled that you have decided to make this place part of your digital home on the web for over a decade. I know the site will be in good hands with Raychan and hope that the friendships that have formed here will survive and thrive for years to come. It has been an honor.

- Matt 'Armitage' Demicco
