Been a bit quiet lately

by on Mar.16, 2013, under Blog

Things have been a bit on the quiet side lately with the site. Although I do try and keep links fixed on some past posts. The Dude Suit Radio station does keep updated and I try to add new tracks every other week, currently in rotation Dude Suit Radio has over 1500 tracks. I myself have been a little under the weather and dealing with some family sickness also. So there haven’t been any new posts lately.

Hopefully things will get back to normal and we’ll see where things go on the site. I was thinking of offering some small services for gamers and/or possible people wanting to run their own radio stations by renting out teamspeak server space and offer shoutcast server rentals. But I’m going to hold off on that for a while for now.

Anyhow if you like Trance, Trip Hop, House music then feel free to enjoy Dude Suit Radio 24/7 stream, just click the ‘click here to listen’ over on the right. Or if on the mobile version of the site just go to the Dude Suit Radio page.

Looking to probably change the theme or layout of the site

by on Dec.31, 2012, under Blog

Thinking of changing the layout or “theme” around on the site. Not sure if I’ll go with a lighter or stay with the dark theme or 1 to 3 columns and such.

The mobile device theme will stay the same for now so mobile devices will not be affected. But desktop viewers may notice subtle changes or big changes to the look and layout of the site over the next few days. Not exactly sure which way I’ll go or if it’ll be a permanent change just thinking about something new for the new year.

For those that are curious I currently use the ‘Pixel’ theme as it is an older simpler them that hasn’t been updated in a while I’ve been thinking a change is in order. Perhaps I may even work on designing one from scratch. Anyhow leave a comment if you have any tips, ideas, etc, course this site is mainly at the moment a ‘stream of consciousness’ blog of my favorites and ideas with the most popular sections being my Dude Suit Radio streaming server, Stern links, and info for UK users to bypass PirateBay blocks.

If you would like to suggest some ideas feel free to leave a comment. If you happen to enjoy a particular WordPress theme then please drop me a comment with the name of the theme and I’ll definitely check it out. If you’d like to browse the bulk of WordPress themes you can find them here http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ although there are 3rd party companies that also design and offer free and commercial themes as well. Just curious what people like mainly, lighter background versus darker background, then 1 to 3 columns or perhaps no columns and use seperate pages instead. Let me know what ya think if you feel like it, I’m curious.

Have a Happy New Year!

Update to site for mobile devices

by on Apr.01, 2012, under Blog

Users who visit Dude-Suit.Net on their mobile devices will notice things have changed a bit. To make things easier to read, and quicker loading I have installed a specific mobile theme that automatically loads for mobile devices. Desktop/Laptop users will see the usual layout as it’s always been, but users on mobile devices will see the new streamlined theme.

My Soundcloud

by on May.01, 2011, under Blog, Music

In an old blog I had, I posted about finally starting to mess around with midi and DAW (digital audio workstation) software.
So I’ve been playing around and testing different sounds and learning the software. The software I’m using is Ableton Suite 8.

The midi controller I am using is the Akai LPK25 keyboard.
