You can’t beat Steve Swetman’s attempts at running websites. This guy makes NorthernMonkey look a professional IT engineer.
After the shambles that was JustCast, we catch up with Steve, and follow the lead up to the official launch of his new project, YouLiveNow.
24th August 2105:
Great. A few minor tweaks, and we will have the new casting site up and running.
14th September 2015:
Not too bad. 3 weeks later and we at least have a test stream.
8th October 2015:
Oh my lord, this could all go tits up lol. Also, i like the way Steve claims he builds the streaming sites 😉
8th October 2015:
So, over 6 weeks later, we still need the minor tweek’s sorting, but hey, we have Richard Swann on board, and have 20 NEW members signed up. Ready to rock and roll soon eh?
19th October 2015:
2 Months later, but at least we are ‘very close’ now 🙂
30th October 2015:
You’re in Spain, and can’t get a decent internet connection?
Although there was a further update that same day.
So the Coder is moving the site to a new server.
It’s looking good chaps 🙂
4th November 2015:
Ah, i see now. So it wasn’t the bad wifi in Spain that was causing the delays, it was the Coder, he’s done a runner again LOL
5th November 2015:
Wow, that was quick. Up and running the next day, impressive. I reckon it was that Linux genius Dicky who fixed the code and server.
6th November 2015:
Doh! i was wrong!
7th November 2015
Oh no! So the Coder’s done a runner, and the server is lagging like a bitch. But wait! Didn’t Steve say earlier, that he builds all his streaming sites?
Plus, when you have a Linux and Networking guru on the team, such as Richard Swann, surely finding and fixing the error’s should be child’s play?
9th November 2015:
So, 11 weeks after the ‘just a few minor things’ to fix, and YLN is still on the test server, still lagging and glitching like a true MOFO, and their Coder has apparently took the money and ran!
You couldn’t make this shit up lol.
1-) Instead of using a home server to test on, why not spend a few quid on a decent server, one that doesn’t lag and buffer?
2-) Why do you need a Coder to migrate your site to another host? Anybody with FTP can do that, then just edit the necessary files of the IP/Database on the new host?
It should take no more than a couple of hours max, to fix their problems and have the site moved over, but it’s like the blind leading the blind over there lol.
I can just picture Dicky and Steve on Skype, with that confused look in their eyes, both saying “To me, to you”
