    Fun With Internet 

    If you are an internet addict like me then I am sure you would find some really good and funny stuff on the internet. I found some really funny things which I am sharing in this post.

    1. Try this : If you have a facebook account then go to the bottom of your home page where it is written “English (US)”, it is actually the language in which you are using facebook, click on it and change the language to “English (Pirate)”. Now, share this thing with your friends after you have stopped laughing. 😀

    2. Go to google translate and select to convert from English to Swahili and then Convert “stupidity”, I am sure you will laugh after what you find.

    3. Some more fun with google translate, try this : Go to google translator, write “will justin bieber ever hit puberty”,choose translation to Vietnamese, copy Vietnamese translation to the translate box, then choose translation to English, My apology to you if you are a Justin Bieber Fan. 😀

    4. The last one although not on the internet but still is a lot of fun with Windows XP, note that this trick works only with Windows XP & Windows Vista Only, try this : Open Notepad and Copy-Paste this Code:

    Dim msg, sapi
    msg=InputBox(“Enter your text”,”Talk it”)
    Set sapi=CreateObject(“sapi.spvoice”)
    sapi.Speak msg

    Save the file with .vbs extension. For example, welcome.vbs, (Select File Type as All Types while saving). After saving open the file.

    If you know more of such kind of weird things then please
    comment below. 🙂

    How to Create your own Radio Station..?? 

    Hello readers, as by now you might have come to know that I am fond of doing funny things on the Internet, so in this post I will tell you how to create your own radio station in Windows using a website called Shoutcast.

    Firstly, there are some preliminary requirements that you need to fulfill for creating your own radio station:

    • You must have the latest version of Winamp installed on your system. If you don’t have it you can download it here.
    • Your internet speed should be at least 25 kbps to start streaming.

    First of all download all the 4 tools given on this page: http://www.shoutcast.com/broadcast-tools

    Now after you have downloaded, install the SHOUTcast DNAS 1.9.8 and also the SHOUTcast DSP Plug-In for Winamp.

    After installing both the tools mentioned above, you need to edit the Shoutcast DNAS Configuration file, you can find it in Start–>SHOUTcast DNAS–>Edit SHOUTcast DNAS configuration.

    Open this file and just look for these three fields which are usually surrounded by rectangles :

    • MaxUser=32; this field determines the maximum number of listeners your station can have, maximum permissible value is 50, so if you want you can change it to 50 by replacing the value 32 by 50.
    • Password=changeme; this field is your password and the default password provided to you is “changeme” so better change it to one that you want bye replacing the “changeme” by password of your choice.
    • PortBase=8000; this is your port number which by default is 8000, if you don’t have any other service running on your system on port 8000 then don’t change it. Otherwise, change the value to any other port.

    After you have finished editing the configuration file don’t forget to save it.

    After doing this, open Winamp and press Ctrl-P, a Winamp preferences window will open up, select DSP Effect under Plugins, and just select the Nullsoft SHOUTcast Source DSP v1.9.1.
    After selecting this, a new window will open up by the name SHOUTcast source having four tabs Main, Output, Encoder, Input, now follow these steps:

    • Select the Encoder Tab, and select Encoder 1, and also select Encoder type as MP3 encoder from the drop down list.
    • Now in the Output Tab, change the password to the one you edited in the SHOUTcast DNAS Configuration file, by default the port number is 8000 but In case you changed it in the SHOUTcast DNAS Configuration file then set the port number to the one in your SHOUTcast DNAS Configuration file. Also select Encoder as 1 from the drop down list.
    • After this Go to Start–>SHOUTcast–>SHOUTcasr DNAS(GUI), a window will open up with the title Server Monitor.
    • Now go back to winamp and open a song and play it, and now in that SHOUTcast Source window having those four tabs select the output tab and press Connect.
    • Now in the Status if you see the data sent changing then your radio station has started, you can make your friends listen to the songs that you are playing by giving them the link of the type: http://(Your-IP-Address):(Port number)/listen.pls

    You can find your IP address here and your port number by default shall be 8000 but if you have changed it in the configuration file put in the changed number.

    That’s it you are done..!! 😀

    If you have any problems in installation and Settings comment me, and until my next post Keep Smiling..!! 😀

      That is so very interesting and someday I may just try to do that although I’m not sure how many will have the time to tune in to me.

      • Aniruddh 12:01 pm on October 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        You can ask your friends Sir to tune in bye just giving the address to them as I mentioned in the post and may be u can give the address to me too.>!! 😀

      so do i have to download pro winamp or no?

      • aniruddh89 5:38 pm on November 10, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        No Marko you don’t need to download a Winamp Pro version, you can do this by the Free Download version of Winamp. I have enclosed the link in the post..!!

      Great guide, thanks.
      I’m having a lot of problems making my radio. can you please do a guide for the newer version or help me?

      • Aniruddh 7:01 pm on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        surely I can help you, just tell me the problems that you are experiencing so that I can suggest you something..!!

      I have been using Blog Talk radio to conduct author interviews for about 2 years now they are changing their costs and abilities for the free shows. Does Shoutcast have a chat feature? How would it work to have a guest call in to a chow is that possible?

      • Aniruddh 4:15 pm on December 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Well, All I know is that Shoutcast is not good for professional usage as it limits the amount of listeners to just 50. It’s all right if u want to have some fun with the radio..!! 🙂
        So, If u want features like chat shows and interviewing you should try some other tools on the web but not shoutcast.

      • Aniruddh 12:07 pm on January 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Thanks for visiting Leo, I think the problem that u are facing is about naming ur channel and also with the URL. I will tell u what I did ad I think the same will work out for u. You can name your station by any name that you want and in the URL enter http://www.shoutcast.com, that’s it, I think this will work out for you.
        But If it doesn’t then do tell me the Operating system that u are using..!

        You need a static IP to make your own radio station otherwise you will have to keep changing it, although I will search for a solution and if I find one I will surely inform you..! 🙂

      1. Would I need to pay anywhere to start my radio station i.e to Shout-cast etc
      2. Would I be able to broadcast this radio station through Tune In Radio etc and other apps on App Store and Android?
