This is the placeholder for information pertaining to the Radii
project as will be described in the November 2005 edition of
Details about the project will be placed here once the article is
published but, here is the teaser from the Next Month section
of the October 2005 issue of Linux Journal:
| Links to Radii Photos and Source
||This will take you to a page that includes many photos of
the interior and exterior of the unit.
||The main perl script.
||A very stale station list. Will be updated soon. I have
not refreshed it in months. For those of you who are
familiar with internet radio, you know that these are
moving targets (ip's change, stations drop, etc.).
|| Must be used in conjunction with iolcd.c
which can be found at Linux Focus. Note that the Linux Focus article also has a the nice LCD pinout diagram that I used to build my LCD cable. Compile like so:
gcc -o setlcd setlcd.c iolcd.c Compilation will generate warnings (OK to ignore).
||This is a perl script used to generate the xml station list
by scraping it from err... other sources. Not uploaded yet.
This is not necessary to run the system (I will get a
fresh station list up here soon).
||OOPic microcontroller code. Please see
information on the OOPic microcontroller development system.
Code Needs some commenting. Yeah, I know, not linux but
its cheap and easy! Maybe the pinball guy can help
me get something going with Linux.
Internet radio doesn't have to tie you to the computer.
Dan Rasmussen, Jon Morgan, and Paul Norton have updated a classic
radio design with the ability to tune in Internet streams.
