12:21:09--->Good news to our DJs, and some listeners, we have a new chat feature on the board. Simply visit the board and click on the chat link in the upper right corner. Other than that, numbers are looking good these days. We've seen a decent rise in the amount of listeners, as well as, how long they are staying tuned in. The new year should bring a bit more enthusiasm in the promotion of the station so keep checking back with, things might get rowdy.
7:2:09--->Things are moving right along. We've moved servers again to a much more stable data center. Numbers are up, fresh beats are in the playlist. But, that doesn't mean we still don't need grip-loads more material from you. Give us what you got, we'll play it. Also, if you're interested in your own show, hit up any of the admins and we'll get you sorted
3:3:09--->Woohoo... Destroyer Radio 3.0 is here. We'll consider it beta for now. There's loads more options/features this time around so poke around, check it out and let us know if there are any issues you run into. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be fine tuning and fixing any bugs that come up, as well as, adding a few more new features. Lastly, be ready for a massive overhaul on the playlist, and new shows.
Check it out, keep it locked and thanks for the support!

NEW-10:03:08--->Business as usual. Things have been more stable then they have been in a while.
If you happen to have some Destroyer stickers and would like to place them in compromising places on your body, or someone else's body, then photograph it, send it to us and we'll replace that stale article space to the right.
We're always looking for fresh tunes and mixes. If you have your own material or have a suggestion for anyone's material, let us know.
Be on the look out in the next few months for a newly structured site with more features.
As always, keep it locked, and find others to do the same.
NEW-5:29:08--->Hey, do you write tunes? Or shit, do you just tinker? Awesome, we're looking for station identifications. We're having a contest, that will actually pay you if we choose one of your station IDs. So get crackin, write us some jingles. Contest rules and info can be found HERE
NEW-4:14:08--->If you haven't noticed, some changes have been going down. Some shows have gone away, some new ones have started up. If you would like to start your own show, click HERE, then get in touch with Hue-e or Mighty.As always, we're looking for mixes so if you got em, post em in the Mixes/Tracks section of the forum and we'll put em in the playlist. Other then that, the servers are running stronger then ever. But, please feel free to contact us if you experience any problems with the stream.
NEW-12:25:07--->Hola Amigos! Well, Merry Christmas or Hanukah or whatever you celebrate. Hope everyone is having good holidays. We're busy as usual and everything appears to be working. We replaced a NIC on the playlist last week (sorry about the downtime). Servers had some maintenance this weekend (again , sorry about more downtime). We just launched on nokia radio tuners so holler. We'll have some more news in the new year so keep it peeled. as always keep it gangsta and whatever. peace.
9:21:07--->We're running pretty solid these days, haven't had any new problems come up. But we still need your help spreading the word about the station, tell your friends or whoever might be intereseted. Additionally, we're always looking for new material for our playlist. If you are a dj/producer, or know one, post, or have them post, a mix or tunes in our forum. We'll get them in the rotation. Thanks!
NEW-9:3:07---> A couple weeks ago, we believe the problems with the stream had been fixed. We've been on a steady climb in listeners and, from what we can tell, the connection is solid. Additionally, the playlist has been updated with new material and there's a new article by Pam B featuring Black Swann. Enjoy!
NEW-7:30:07---> ok, things havent been running very smoothly for a few weeks. however, we are hot on the trail of these problems that have been occurring and we are hoping to fix the situation asap. ive been out of touch for awhile moving yet again to another state. we have a couple of things in the works to fix the connection problems and hope to back to normal soon.
NEW-7:28:07--->[/i]We've upgraded our connection to our playlist server. During non-live broadcast hours you shouldn't experience any more buffering or skipping. If you do, please contact Hue-e via the Destroyer message board. Thanks!
NEW-7:27:07--->We've tracked down what we think the majority of the problem is with our stream skipping and will be working this weekend to correct the problem. Keep it locked, we'll get this shit running smoothly again.
NEW-1:14:07--->New maintenance and redevelopment continues. users with no posts or inactive accounts have been purged from our database. some new methodology to operations will be appearing over the next few months but for now, just remember to get involved if you want access to the site. all the previously mentioned projects are still being worked on/in the works. for anyone that cares Im finally moved and nearly organized in my new home. there;s quite a bit to do yet so were still a ways off from finishing alot of my aformentioned projects but were closer. alot of stuff going on here throughout the first of the year. -M
NEW-1:10:07--->So, we're doing a little house cleaning to the Destroyer Roster and some slots have started opening up. If you, or someone you know, is interested in doing a show with us, keep an eye on the calendar for something that might work for you or your friend, then get in touch with us and we'll hook it up. We've also updated the playlist with a grip of new material, enjoy! -H
NEW-1:3:07--->Happy New Year bitches! Nothing all that new to report other than we've made some updates to the calendar, the playlist has been updated with some new material, etc and we're ready to get things rollin' for the new year. Expect to hear a lot more from us not only here, but wherever else you frequent on the web. Oh, and you djs, don't forget about posting fresh mixes in the forum so you can get maximum exposure, and we can keep the new music rollin'. -H
NEW-9:27:06--->ahhh, well ok so alot of things went uncompleted lately. we just are spread super thin. fixing broken things was about all we could keep up with over the past few weeks. everything is happening and working but we have some delays. im moving, lifes crazy, blah blah... everything is in flux but were going to need more time to sort everything. sorry. just remember folks, patience is a virtue. everyone with apparel orders should have their shit tho. very soon everything will be on schedule. again, doing everything we can within reason. -m
NEW-8:26:06--->arrrgh, yeah there is some major maintenenance going on with cogent right now, some knuckle fuck spliced the wrong fiber during some maintenance and so weve had intermittent bunk traces etc since yesterday. sorry for the inconvenience. itll get sussed out soon enough. heh, always something. -m
NEW-8:19:06--->yeah, there have been alot of network problems but numbers are back up again. we've had a handful of security related outages that you can chalk up to dumbfucks. time better spent my young friends... but anyways, some of the final scripting is now apparent in the current build and some of the previously mentioned server alterations are being completed as I type. Further the Virgin Mobile Destroyer stream as well as our independent GPRS/dial up stream will be available this month! as per usual the entire operation is a logistical nightmare full of snags so we appreciate your patience. I should also note some time in Nov/Dec main operations inc. the entire Destroyer Entertainment Group eschelon of sub-entities will be moved to Austin, TX... we foresee a transparent re-location, but yeah you know... we'll just see. keep it locked, we're always working hard.
8:14:06--->an actual LOGOUT Button is available now!..., yeah yeah... sorry.
8:08:06---> ahhh... ok yeah alot of stuff didnt happen yet, however after several months the shoutcast/nullsoft/aol issue is resolved. im sure the entire internet radio community can take their hand off their dick now. so atleast something is better and this is the new network. in terms of finishing some of the beta shell, basically me and patches mcCruso are the busiest guys you may ever know. let one of us get really sick for a few days or go insane for a day or two (OR BOTH..derp) and timetables jump around from days to weeks and sometimes months. we gots day jobs, side jobs, record labels, bitches and what not to floss too, Sos dont fret, its all at the top of list, do you really need a logout button anyways?!?? we are completely attentive to this community even when it seems like a ghost town. dont be a little bitch, we aint goin no wheres. next weekend: Stakka, Corrupt Souls and Robot Death Squad with special guests - Flatline Audio SUPERCHARGER EP Release Party yeah, thats whats up and yall thought we committed like ritual suicide after round #23425... we aint phazed, keep your ass in your seat.
-M, most foul the foulest
NEW-7:26:06---> A couple things to address/update. Obviously numbers have not been what they were a few months ago. This is a problem affecting all shoutcast stations, not just destroyer. Listing servers @ aol/nullsoft have been acting funky for months and a solution could be months or days away, we'll keep you posted as things develop. Our provider has also been adding connectivity for a few weeks a process that has also contributed to dodgy streams but has now improved our reach/stability across the planet. Further the site is about 97% complete with the exception of some minor fixes and completion of the artist area (still testing some scripts, its close). Also we are adding a dial-up/pda/phone stream, a server-side backup mix for when the dj is fucking up or the playlist is down, and a stream transcoder (nerd shit) which will stabilize the stream even more. All this stuff should be completed no later than Sunday, July 30th. Big ups to everyone that came out to the U.S. Jungle 002 release party, It was a blast. Keep it locked on Destroyer!
NEW-7:13:06---> iight so were getting closer with finalizing the site. weve been completely overloaded so appreciate everyones patience. playlist has been updated for the first time in almost 6 weeks. yeah we've been BUSY!@#@!@!# not just 'busy'. keep it locked.
NEW-7:09:06---> The forum shell has been extracted and is currently semi functional with the exception of some display problems in safari. we expect a fully functioning non beta portal no later than the 19th of this month ( which marks the first actual live show on the stream... birthday? not really but sorta). much thanks to the many people that have helped test the new site and offered suggestions and bug reports. official news sooner than later.
7:06:06---> We've reconfigured the main shell to work better for smaller monitors at no less than 1024x768 screen resolution. Keep checking back, we'll be making more improvements over the weekend.
7:05:06---> The site is currently best viewed at 1280 x 960, were working on improving the display for lower resolutions.
7:04:06---> Destroyer.net Radio v 2.0 is in public beta, please let us know what isnt working, is broken etc etc. please include detailed specs like browser type, version, os etc. We hope to have all the new features and bugs fixed within the week. woot. sidenote: were still using a temporary playlist. power supply in playlist server is dead.
NEW-7:03:06---> hey were having problem, the playlist server is dead. please be patient for tuneage. we'll have something temporary asap.
NEW-6:29:06---> Destroyer Version 2.0 is on its way, watch this space. We should have it launched by this coming holiday.
6:13:06---> Shoutcast clustering/ listing problem has been solved (well sorta) We forward some ports around and everything is *sort of stabilized and back to normal. no rest for the hearts of evil men.
5:31:06---> nothing to report, some shows been having connection problems unfortunately. on a positive note we have several new studio mixes and tracks in the playlist. new site is still being worked on. blah blah. buy a shirt.
5:20:06--->several days offline but were back ... some more info on what happened. Our datacenter was the victim of a DDOS attack on monday. During the attack many IPs got unbound and then on wednesday, our IP block was accidently re-leased to another party. this caused our nameservers to fail, resulting in the complete disappearance of all domains under destroyer's servers. we apologize for the inconvenience. we're glad to be back so keep locked on destroyer.
5:15:06--->We are currently experiencing technical difficulties at one of our datacenters. Please watch this spot for an update. Server has been lagged and dropping packets all day.
4:12:06---> It appears as tho things are finally back to normal. thats pretty cool. keep it locked for site relaunch at some point soon. buy a shirt.
3:25:06--->We've been getting some reports of dropping connections or impossible traceroutes to Destroyer? We are not experiencing this from main operation points so please contact us with your location. If capable please provide us PING and or TRACEROUTE data from your location to destroyer. We want to make Destroyer the best and it seems the past 3-4 months have been nothing but problematic. I am uber sick of constantly being on the move on this stuff and really want to get it stabilized. any help our supporters can provide is certainly appreciated. word to the motherfucker.
3:20:06--->uh. wtf... the counter broke. so i turned it back to the last number i remmber at or around. weird.
2:17:06---> Alrighty then. The relay is back and everything is running normally. Happy Saint Patrick's day! be sure to get mondo hammered throughout the day/evening, We definitely will be. big grin
2:16:06---> Um ok... We never stop having problems, its true... lol. as of the moment since an unknown time this morning our relay provider appears to have dropped off the face of the planet. sorta crazy the luck destroyer has been having these days, actually reflected in quite an unpleasant fashion in mine and P's personal lives too, eh but we know how to roll with the punches. As always, we wont give up... were doing what we can to get the other 100 streams back, worse case scenerio we'll just get another server or something.
2:15:06---> Network problems have been resolved, thank you come again. buy a shirt or donate you fucking bastards, Mighty needs to pay his child support. (jk, I dont have any shorties) Razz
NEW- 2:15:06--->Were having some network problems, not ours or the djs fault. hopefully fixed within a few hours or less. grrr.
2:09:06---> This is the new news module in action. it extracts news from the database and is actively updated via the site. Also for the most part destroyer is back to normal. We hope this is the last major migration for quite some time. As the server is now controlled by us. Were fairly confident that we wont be moving again for quite some time. all I can say is damn, when youve moved a site so many times and more specifically restored a gigantic phpbb database again and again, it kinda makes you wanna drink some windex or something. sheesh.
1:22:06---> So yeah its been rough with all these server problems and we realize some folks are still having trouble connecting, were currently working on this and have some solutions in the works. Were hoping to up the cap, resolve these problems and get back on working on the new site (yes, we had to postpone this again.) Keep it locked on Destroyer.net Radio and know that we are working round the clock to improve your experience here.
1:16:06---> Trouble Connecting try copying http://184.108.40.206:8800/listen.pls into your browser or player.
Sorry for the inconvenience
PLEASE EXCUSE OUR FUCKED-UP-NESS WHILE WE MOVE TO A NEW SERVER, EVERYTHING WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL SOON!!! DO NOT FEAR, WE AINT GOIN NOWHERE!
9:15:05---> OK. Fuck. Since we moved from the badly DDOS'd server to a new one, we got nailed with another unlucky problem. Here is the official statement from the datacenter...During the last few days (We all know this has actually been 2 weeks. lol.) we are working with our Texas network core providers on upgrades of our network fibers . During this days streaming clients may receive buffering issues from time to time.There may be other small interruptions during this time as we test the new switches and ensure that traffic is flowing correctly through them. By moving to these new switches we will be able to offer greater redundancy, and in the case of a failure, much quicker times to restore service. I am told this will be fixed by Monday September 19th. We sincerely apologize to all the users and listeners for this run of bad luck. Hopefully these buffering issues will FINALLY be a thing of the past. Keep it locked on Destroyer.net Radio, We still have a bunch of exciting new things coming soon.
8:29:05---> FINALLY! The new relay is finally in place and as yet we havent had any problems. Now to just get our dedicated listeners back on the stream. Thanks and sorry to all those that patiently waited for the relay server to be replaced, it was a long and annoying 2 months, wasn't it? Stay tuned for new and exciting tings from the Destroyer Radio camp.
>8:08:05---> As many of you know since our relay has moved data centers we've had nothing but fucking problems, our provider is doing whatever he can to avert this situation however the network has been getting ddos'd routinely during peak broadcast hours. We are currently working towards a solution and apologize for the total lack of quality on the stream. We will hopefully be moved to a better place by next week. poop.
7:01:05---> All connectivity has been returned to normal. Everything is functioning optimally. yay.
6:30:05--->Our relay is currently fucked. Our other 100 streams will be returning shortly all apologies for those that kept buffering throughout wednesday night and thursday. Obviously we've been slow with updates lately but rest assurred the new interface is coming along slowly and will be launched as soon as it is ready for primetime. 33 shows and counting, forum picking up steam and lots of great stuff in store for the rest of the summer and fall. Keep it locked on Destroyer.net radio.
1:18:05---> Wow, some real progress over this past week. We have added another moderator and team member. We are currently looking for website advertisers to help cover bandwidth and server costs, please contact us if your interested.
1:10:05---> Boom. What a week, we've been getting the name out there and listing with alot of new places. upped the server cap to 150, hit a max of 130 so far! Good things for everyone here. Now we just need about 100 more new tunes and mixes. Working on new site. Donations page is almost up. New shirts and other products coming next month hopefully.
12:23:04---> Happy Holidays Bitches! We've been busy so updates have been scarce. Be looking into the new year for the next version of the site. Also We've added Reduced Phat and Sonicterror's music catalogues to the playlist (Thank you), Go check out their sites for the next level of cutting edge breakbeat/DNB/breakcore. Hostile mail has slowed considerably which is nice and numbers have been slamming at select times, We hit capacity twice in the 2nd week of December!!!. Remember we are always on the look out for new material to keep things fresh so help us out and bug your friends (the ones who own labels too!). big grin
At peril of sounding like a douchebag... SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!!

Stay tuned, hit us up.
