  • BH : ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘€
  • BH : okay everything looks better - donate today if you have not~~~~
  • Visible Spirit : ๐Ÿ”Š ๐ŸŽถ ...been crankin' steady tunes out since last comment! ISP knows BU4B is a priority ๐Ÿ˜€! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  • Visible Spirit : Huh. Just clicked in and working at the moment ๐Ÿ‘€. ๐Ÿ‘
  • Visible Spirit : Post a message when you're back up again, thanks ๐Ÿ‘Œ .
  • Visible Spirit : Oh well. Sadly it is what it is. Just have to deal with it as nothings perfect.
  • Visible Spirit : brb
  • Visible Spirit : Damn... that sucks. Hmmm... they estimate 3+ hours to get you back up. Bummer. Wonder why I'm having issues here although they're minor glitches and not full outage like you're having. Likely the CS (local central server).
  • BH : finally the cable company sees there is a problem jeese - Outage alert - We see there are others in your area reporting a network related issue. You may experience some intermittent network issues as our teams are currently working to identify and resolve the issue. Estimated Time to Repair: 07/20/2021 01:44 PM
  • Visible Spirit : Yep! Internet sucks today. Stream's not working and neither are things on my end! Been having my share of issues today... and no bad weather around that I know of. 88ยฐ here and partly sunny as they say. More like filtered sun through the clouds, but hey, beats rain or snow! :-0
  • Visible Spirit : You're welcome brother!
  • BH : thanks VS - fuck fuck fuck this internet
  • Visible Spirit : Ttyl... -->
  • Visible Spirit : Email me. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Visible Spirit : You have an address for Ray you can email me? I know someone respectable and private up in his area that could check on him. That and I'm only about 165 miles away. A 3 hour ride next Saturday if nothing else. Something I do regularly anyway. !50+ miles is nothing for me to lay down in a day. Round trip no problem.
  • Visible Spirit : Been rockin' for a while now. Better than it has all day so we'll see. Another half hour for me and I'm outta here.
  • BH : ya I'm worried about him - getting frustrated going to step away for a bit
  • Visible Spirit : Lil' concerned about Ray myself here considering he's on here daily! I see it's been a week since he last posted. You gotten any emails from him or any indicators something's wrong BH?
  • Visible Spirit : Stream's droppin' left and right today. ๐Ÿ™

  • bellyhead ray : morning
  • Visible Spirit : ...BU4B is still rockin' the world when others have gone by the wayside. THAT... speaks volumes for what you do... and have done. Thank you brother. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Visible Spirit : Yes, I know. Regardless what they are for or why they are or are not included together, the point is, the total of the two is all I can afford in a months time. Was just pointing out I try more than what it appears to others (unless they're keeping track) with what little I can afford to give. I wish I had more because what you do here is worth every penny of support, but I don't. I'm very thankful others can afford more support than I and it balances out per say. BU4B is still rockin' the world
  • BH : Thank you Robert & David!!! And all the Bellyheads who supported The Belly in June!!!
  • BH : me too later bro
  • bellyhead ray : thanks hope to see you soon !โ˜ฎ
  • BH : thank you Reinhard!!!!! That leaves $69 left should be able to finish it I'd think??? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • BH : ๐Ÿ‘
  • bellyhead ray : okay but not worried real i guess that secure vnp really works
  • BH : I'll erase your IP post nobody else's beeswax ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • BH : ๐Ÿ™‚
  • bellyhead ray : i had my avg secure vpn on it's off now !
  • BH : now it's on there guess you were off doing other things
  • BH : yes but it isn't listed if you have been listening
  • BH : cause your first donation went to finish up May - different months
  • Visible Spirit : Gotta go. ttyL... ๐Ÿ˜‰ >>>
  • BH : sorry Ray that was crappy sounding I'll find a better verson FYI
  • Visible Spirit : ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘
  • Visible Spirit : That's a huge plus IMO. I can maintain my little monthly donations if it'll save the station. I know it's about half what I used to donate, but I just can't get ahead of things here either. Terrible situatiion keeping a roof over my head. ...that and the front page doesn't show I made 2 already this month; ...all-be-it 1/2 what I used to. 1 to help wrap up last months bills, and 1 for this month. Just sadly don't have any to spare. Sounds like a good plan to me to keep the blues alive.
  • BH : should cut the royalty bill way down yes - of course that all depends on the people that donate still contributing each month - will have to think on it some
  • Visible Spirit : Reread your post there. Answered 2nd question. Still curious if it'll save u$ in the end.
  • Visible Spirit : ...wondering if you can whitelist IP's as well.
  • Visible Spirit : Howdy! BH -- Is that going to save a substantial amount at the end of the month?
  • BH : thinking if we do come back going to reduce listeners to 35 (about how many have donated this month) so will need to update them so donators can get on and bump the freeloaders off FYI
  • BH : think your IP changed again Ray don't see your regular one on the board??
  • BH : ??????? I wonder
  • bellyhead ray : gee what in the wide world of sport does he mean by playing this song ?๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ
