Finally getting to slow down this weekend (shopping, plumbing, pest control and multiple wasp stings) and will start with some standard “Snakeice House of Beats” mixed genre rough and wild moving to mellow and sultry.
Going to go with some artists like YG, Snoop Dogg, Jacka & Berner, T.I. then flow into Fantasia, Najee, TGT, Lindsey Stirling and just keep mixing and matching as appropriate.

Back streaming music here at Snaekice’s House of Beats after OS updates to my music server.
July 20, 2017
Doing a quick reboot of my music streaming server after applying some critical OS updates to the W2012 R2 system.
July 8, 2017
Well what just started off as a W2012 r2 security patch update ending up being a bit more. I ended up updating not only the server where I process the music, run the streaming application with it’s database and ShoutCast relays but also my IceCast relay which is Centos 7. When I saw the new kernel I also did a quick and dirty update on my Centos 7 web server I have virtualizized on XenServer since it was a quick update for a virtual system.
As I brought up the SAM broadcasting software I use to stream the data I noticed there as a new version and I took a leap of faith and updated that as well since it had improvements with how it interacted with my MySQL database.
In short form back up and streaming ahead at full speed on the “Snakeice House of Beats” Ship streaming service!

Apologies for the brief music stream interruption but installing some security updates on the w2012 r2 streaming server and will be back in a few minutes. My Centos 7 web server will be up still.
I decided to update my Centos 7 monitoring server that also acts as IceCast relay since the streaming server will be down. This monitoring /IceCast relay server is also a separate server from the web server ans streaming music server. My ShoutCast streams are run from the W2012 r2 server.

What’s hot about this deliberate musical spread i’m about to lay out for you is that it will take you back to the old hip-hop days, through some old school rock, some funk with a few spots of smoother sounds. Will then hit you with more current tunes of all genres and move it back and forth on you until late Saturday night and then I may let it go on my scripts again which has its own special spice I mixed in that keeps it going 24 hours and surprises me all the time.
A very Snakeice House of Beats vibe!
Some old school:
Boogie Boys, Sugarhill Gang, Connie, Da Brat
Def Leppard, Accept, Jimi Hendrix
Some Funk, Gap Band, Parliament:
Some newer sounds sprinkled in Lorde, Big Sean, Trombone Shorty, Wale:

Update the OS that has the streaming server so there will be a slight break in the music stream though the website will be up while I reboot my server I stream the music from.
As an update on this I also updated the streaming application I use SAM Broadcaster to the latest version and my IceCast relay server system which is of course another separate system. The streaming server is W2012 r2 and the IceCast server is running Linux Centos 7 as is my web server. I stream to ShoutCast from my windows 2012 R2 streaming server that has SAM Broadcaster on it.

Well today I updated the Shoutcast streams and saw that a new version of WordPress was available I updated that as well. Besides updating to the latest stream software for Shoutcast I also did away with the 160kbps stream and made that a 192kbps stream to as I noticed Shoutcast searches on Radionomy do not visibly have a search for 160kbps or other custom stream bit rates.
All music and servers I host, build and maintain from my home data center.

What’s up with the music this Saturday well here at Snakeice’s House of Beats I’m weaving a little mix or mostly medium type beats with a few high powered to wake you up and then taking it back down again. Really going to try and mix a lot of blues and jazz this Saturday and songs with that vibe but of course will get the other genres in as well in sets.
As I like to do here’s a list of the artists and it can be their newest or maybe some older cuts songs but something that really fits.
I have some Joe Bonamassa, Joe, Bon Jovi, Larry Graham, Robert Brookins, Stephanie Mills, Eazy E, ( have to mix it up), Afrika Bambaataa, 112, Mozzy and it goes on…
