19-June-2022 :: Father's Day
I'm not sure what I'm actualy feeling about this, considering my situation with my daughter....

Perhaps my brain has too many tabs open.
16-Jun-2022 :: Flight / Dialysis
I finished the IVAO vintage airmail tour last night late, and have started on the Ultralight Tour using a aviqatika mai-890 ultralight bi-plane, *and* the vintage world tour using a DC-3. I'm really enjoying being back into flying.

I have finally been able to get to dialysis all this week. The social worker at the clinic expressed some concern about my loss of weight just before the "pause" but I don't see it as anything to worry about.
06-Jun-2022 :: Still flying
I have been doing a lot of flying recently. I'm now about half way through the IVAO Vintage Airmail tour. I've been looking around for a small Business Jet and an ultralight as I am thinking of doing those tours as well.

I have been missing a lot of Dialysis the past few weeks. The Paratransit from St.Mary's that I use has a new scheduler, and she hasn't got her seams straight. So I haven't been able to book transportation on a regular basis and I can not afford the RTC Paratransit much.

I have a great idea for a show. All cover originals. Basically play the original versions of songs that were covers and became famous. That may take a bit of doing to put together though.
22-May-2022 :: Flying
It has been a very long time since I have done much with Flight Simulator. Steam shows I have only run it for 15 hours since I bought it many years ago. Much a departure from past years. So I have decided to get involved again with IVAO (The International Virtual Avaition Orginazation)

Most people know I prefer playing in multiplayer mode, so I have spent the past couple of days setting up their new connection software. I have decided to do the North American division Vintage Air Mail Tour using a Piper PA-31 Navajo. (Which Wikipedia indicates is one of the Aircraft used for US Airmail service, probbably from 1967 on to 1975. The tour starts in Halifax so I expecting to be flying across Canada most of this next week.

I have noticed that the IVAO status indicator on my home page appears to be broken. It either wont load at all, or always says "Offline." The new IVAO trackinfg system called "Webeye" does work though. I am using the callsign N113S so you can track my flights (as well as everyone else on the IVAO network) at http://webeye.ivao.aero/?callsign=N113S
08-May-2022 :: No Show Today
No MeowMix show today. It being Mother's day no one will be listening, and I'm not really feeling into-it today.

If you have been wondering what my shows in second life look like, here are a couple of screenshots for you:

21-Apr-2022 :: Archive Updated
I have updated my show archive with everything up to last weekend. I have also added links/shortcuts on the main page to the archive, my steam profile and live in-game broadcast page.
16-Apr-2022 :: Facebook
I finally did it, joined Facebook. Although I still say "Facebook" is what happens when you fall asleep in a Library. You will find me on FB as "Jitar GrRahiir"

I haven't really done a whole lot interesting in the past couple of weeks. Mostly played Space Engineers. I have finally gotten Silent Hunter 5 to work and have been messing around with that a bit.
18-Mar-2022 :: YouTube / Turok Tutorial
I have finally finished the Level 1 Turok Dinosaur Hunter Game Tutorial. If is available her e on my personal site in the Videos section. I have also created a YouTube channel for them. (Search for "DJ Jitar") I should be posting levels 2 and 3 this comming week.
14-Mar-2022 :: Live Video Broadcast
This past week I have been back playing Space Engineers for the first time in over a year. I stopped playing because of a couple of idiots on the server. I *LIVE* broadcast my games in STEAM. (Not just Space Engineers but every game I play on steam.) If you are interested in learning how the games I play work you can watch as I play. The live-stream URL is


Other than gaming, everything is kinda okay.
27-Feb-2022 :: This weekend's shows and Alchemy
Just as I started my show at the Yiff Club Saturday, my internet went blooey. They had fixed the problem some months back but it started up again. I noticed the past couple of weeks it was starting to have problems but wasn't that bad until this weekend. ASo I wasn't able to do my shows.

I did however manage to go to DD's show earlier in the evening. The Alchemy client did great, It managed to maintain 20+ FPS even while the camera angle had some of the audiance in it. (I had been turning the camera away from the audiance to keep the frame rate up to at least 10 FPS.) I noticed the colour is a bit darker and AAlchemy dosen't seem to have a way to save camera pre-sets. I posted some videos I captured last night so you can see how it does. Videos 46 through 49 are using Alchemy
22-Feb-2022 :: 02/22/22 ... OwO
I had a pretty good weekend. Went to the Yiff for DJ Dark Dragon's show and snapped a couple of new Dance videos. (See videos section in the left sidebar.) Although I keep missing Razi's show at Luna's on Sunday. My shows both went okay although the network kept dropping me.

Still messing around a lot in Sims-2. This week though I've also been in SL a bit. One of the peeps at the club during my show was talking about the Alchemy client for SL which I have been checking out. It does seem to be even better than the Firestorm client and can aparently also work in Metaverse.

I finally also got to see Disney's Alladin, with Will Smith. Liked that.

For those who don't know OwO is a furry emote indicating surprise. I was starting to do this entry and noticed the date.
10-Feb-2022 :: Archive Posted for January
I have posted the archive of my January Radio shows for everyone to enjoy. I have a new group I will be introducing on my show this comming Sunday, Professor Pennygood's Mighty Flea Circus. Technically they have been around for over a year but haven't gotten much radio exposure yet.

Still playing a lot with Sims 2 so haven't been on Steam much. I've managed to re-download most of the important mods for it.
01-Feb-2022 :: Still feeling good
I had a bad dialysis day yesterday, I came off feeling a bit shakey from not being able to smoke beforehand. (My lighter died and the matches I had as backup broke and fell apart... grrrrr!) but other than that I had a pretty good week. I updated a couple of pages on my personal website today.

Last weekend I premiered the new single from Soft Cell on my shows, that will be released at the end of Feb. And I get to do it again this comming week with some tracks from Tears for Fears that will also release at the end of Feb.

Still playing a lot with Sims-2 so I haven't really been in Steam too much.
23-Jan-2022 :: The Sims / Shows
It was actually a pretty good week for me.

I finally decided to download an old game I used to play a LOT, The Sims 2. I actually think TS2 is better than TS3 or TS4. The only problem was that when I "Zeroed Out" my computer was stolen and I lost all of my mods for it. So I've been having to go find and download them all.

For the past several weeks I have been simulcasting my Club show on OGR. Starting next saturday the show will be officially on the OGR schedule. So even if you can't come to see me live at the Yiff Hangout Club, you can still listen in on OGR. The club show is from 10pm to Midnight pacific time every Saturday.

We actually had a pretty good crowd this weekend, and I managed another Dance Video posted.
20-Jan-2022 :: Answer about Dance Videos
I got an e-Mail asking about Benji's dance videos which I will answer here for everyone. YES, the dance videos were recorded "Live" in second life and are Motion Capture, but not of me. The dancer you see most often in the videos is named Abram Wolf. While at a club in the second life virtual world, I mix the segments of the dance animations to create the dance that people see in-world. It's somewhat like DJ'ing a live mix, but using dance animations. I often record my camera angle, and pick out the best ones to put into my video section for everyone to enjoy.
13-Jan-2022 :: Archive Complete / NASA
The archive of my radio shows is finally complete. It took some extra time because once I got it all uploaded I realized how much disk storage it was taking up so I moved the actual mp3's to another of my servers that had more disk space available. In total it has 94 hours of recordings. Sadly only 2 shows from before 2019 survived.

It has been an interesting week for NASA. The James Webb Telescope was launched on christmas eve and this past weekend I have been monitoring the Mission Control Center while they un-folded the secondary mirror, primary mirror and aligned the mirrors. The Aames research center is running simulations of vibrations from the SLS rocket during an emergency abort sequance for Artemis on the super-computer.
04-Jan-2022 :: Show Archive Open
For those who have missed my radio and club shows, I have opened an online archive of the recordings of my shows. You can access the archive at http://bearclaw.rexx.com/~roko13/radio/ARCHIVE

Sadly it appears that only 2 recordings have survived from 2006 when I was on Club-69 Radio. During the last part of 2020 and early 2021 I was hosting a radio theatre on OGR, which was not recorded.

I will most likely be uploading the recordings for most of the week, so be sure to check the directory listings for new recordings.

Enjoy the shows!
01-Jan-2022 :: Happy Mew Year!
Yet again another Year is here already. I didn't really do anyhing for New Year's, although I have my shows this weekend. The first weekend of each month is 50's and Rockabilly. Should be fun.
