Hi, I'm Andrew! I'm a software developer from the UK pretending to be a blue fox on the internet!

I'm a massive dork and am interested in electronics, engineering, programming, trains, space, science and a whole lot of other things! In my spare time I am working on a closed-source Space Station 13 codebase at nanotrasen.space/!

My account is locked purely to act as a bot deterrent, so feel free to drop me a follow request!

Currently when the playlist runs out it just generates a new playlist, but the goal is to make it play a jingle or read some news to the listener via speech synthesis or something.

It also has a task that automatically imports music for me from the disk and categorises it.

Important part is that it has a HTTP endpoint that will dequeue things from the playlist, which means that icecast can use it to source what track to play next.

Progress on the radio station front today. Got a Django application running that manages the scheduling of the tracks.

Made a task that will attempt to generate playlists with specific lengths, and it seems to do a reasonable job!
