ARGHH IT'S ON FIRE!

Eve Radio News

Slow news day sooooooooo heres a pretty picture showing what 1800 people on our server looks like.

The spike around the 1000 listener mark is where Gaz miscalculated a little and there was a minor explosion due to duplicate connections and brain damaging reverb. The drop immediately after is where we grabbed a handful of cables and pulled them at once with tears flowing down our cheeks. The sharp rise a few minutes later is where Gaz had a moment of inspiration and correctly (this time) began diverting live people from the 64kbps stream onto a more forgiving 48kbps one.

The following steady climb shows everything was soundly under control where nothing exploded and everything worked correctly. Many valuable lessons learned during this phase.

The peak followed by the rapid drop is where we decided to call it a night and let (nearly) everyone fall into bed.

Where the chart ends is when I finished doing damage control, got the podcast active and stopped caring and cried myself to sleep only to get up 2 hours later to cook my wife a birthday breakfast and hastily wrap her presents.

To conclude, next time we expect something massive like this to happen we should (hopefully) have a 1gbps pipe (10x our current) and be able to stream at much higher bit rates without issue. This is around Milestone 4 or 5 territory tho, so it could take a few months before we get enough people subscribing to our ever expanding Premium Suppoter service to enable the upgrade. Until then, we'll make do using a combination of technological wizardry and prayer.

Green should be server total, red for eve radio. Teal might be the jukebox, and I'm not sure on the rest.

Pretty graph...
...pretty colors... but what do said colors mean?

I'm assuming green and red are what whichever stream Funky was on at the time...

But I'm also seeing a purple, a light blue or cyanish color, and maybe I'm just color blind but at the bottom I'm seeing orange and/or yellow...?

tl;dr: Yaaay, pretty colors?
