Hi all. My name is Robert. I was made fatherless when I was just a baby, and my mom remarried an American born Irishman. He adopted me when I was only 3, and had an incredible fondness for the Irish nation, traditions, and music. As a child I didn't care for any of this, and then he died when I was 27 yrs old, about 10 years before I gained any interest in his heritage. Now, I am doing my level best to learn of the Celtic culture, heritage, and history. As an adoptee, I have always had need of some kind of connection, a sense of belonging if you will. My love for Irish music lead me to a discovery of that connection, and I now will proudly claim Ireland as the roots of my ancestory. So, I look forward to getting to know all of you and having as many as can share all the great things I've been missing.

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

This is in reply to Snuffy's radio trouble. It sounds like to me that you were having a rough way of it for a bit of time. I hope you've cleared it up. I have only been using Live365 for a few days but have had nothing but good results, solid, and am using dial-up as well. Here's a couple of things to check for anyway, just in case.

#1 Be sure you use the drop-down menu under radio tools to get to the listen now button, then choose the following modem button.

#2 Connection speed- are you getting close to 56K? If you are in the 24-32k range you have a connection problem that may lie with your pc or your dial-up isp. Try using a different dial-up number or two.

#3 Line noise- this is as likely a culprit as any. Use the shortest line possible from the wall to your pc. If you must use a line longer than a few feet, go to radio shack and get a good shielded phone line. Let the sales person know it will be use for your pc dial-up service. This line can be a bit pricey, say, twice the price for normal wire, but well worth the investment when using dial-up for streaming audio/video.

#4 Memory. Are you using an older pc? That's ok if you are, but the older and more cluttered the hard drive, the more likely that you will have little available memory. Do a disk cleanup (start/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup) and then defragment (which is right there next to disk cleanup in the menu) After this, restart your computer (which makes more memory instantly available). Also, don't run big programs on an older pc while listening to streaming audio on an older pc. Games and other graphics laden programs will eat so much memory and resources you might have trouble there.


I hope all this helps. I'm no computer geek either, but started out with an old pc and had to learn all about the "tricks" on my own. Good luck. The site and Live365 work great for me, so it's not the media player or CelticRadio.net.

Hello Robert!

Welcome to BOTH families! I am of Scottish descent on my mother's side (mixed apparently with lots of German, English, and a tiny bit of Native American). This is a wonderful place. Lots of friendly people, good music and good conversation. I spend WAY more time here than I should! smile.gif

Look around at the forums! You'll probably find a thread on most any topic you'd like to discuss! And if not, start a new one! We're always eager to find new subjects to talk about (like a pack pf pirahna! wink.gif )

Again, welocme! I look forward to seeing you on the boards!

Thanks for the great welcome! And you're right, from what I can tell this really is a great place. I love all the music too. Unfortunately, this site will end up costing me more money cause I'll undoubtedly purchase a nice speaker system for my pc for listening. cool.gif

Welcome, Lyra. From the new guy to the new gal.

Hi Robert and Lyra! Great to have you both here! Thanks Robert for explaining to Snuffy about the technical stuff to getting into Live 365! I am not very good at computers, so I couldn't explain it to him, but knew somebody could! I just hate to see somebody having any problems and then I can't help! sad.gif

anyway, hope to see lots of posts here from the both of you!

Nathansecesh here. Howdy all! I've been a member since March but got distracted (thought it was a heart attack, but must've been too much chili instead).

For an introduction I'll sum up myself with lots of C's. I'm a Christian, Calvinist, Celt, Confederate, Constitutionist. I'm a citizen of Texas and married to my dearest friend & lover. I've got 2 sons, 7 grandchildren, 3 great grands, 2 dogs, and 7 cats. My Beloved & I and our critters live beside a river in the hill country. The nearest village is 8 winding miles away and the nearest neighbours almost within yelling distance.
(I keep having a nagging thought that I left out one of those defining C's...Oh well, did I mention that I'm getting old and befuddled?!) Oh yea, for 24 years I was a psychologist, but no longer. I fancy myself a Southern agrarian, possibly even a gentleman; I'll leave that call to you folks.

F.S.I.
Nate
