Internet Radio Day of Silence

Today is the Day of silence and both GR stations are off the air (as is all of Live365) to illustrate the impact of the new royalty rates on Internet Radio. In other words, it will disappear as we know it.

Please take the opportunity to call your Senators or Representative and let them know that you support the Internet Radio Equity Act (H.R. 2060 and S.1353). You can find out how to contact them here:

Stations should resume programming around midnight tonight.

Thanks for your support!

Quakecon 2007

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

That’s right! It may be winter outside, but it’s time to start planning that summer vacation to the ultimate multiplayer gaming event and party – QuakeCon 2007. We’re locked and loaded for August 2-5, 2007 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX, and we’ve got more gaming, events, exhibits and fun planned than ever before.

This year’s BYOC Area will consume the entire Trinity Hall 1, with over 70,000 square feet of floor space and 2,700 player spots – over 1,000 more seats than 2006. We’ve also increased the exhibit area 5X to 25,000 square feet, enough to accommodate up to 50 exhibitors demonstrating their latest games and computer hardware. Of course, it wouldn’t be QuakeCon without our high-stakes pro gaming tournaments; and attendees can also look forward to the return and expansion of our enormously popular and one-of-a-kind “Quick Draw” tournaments, which pit randomly selected attendees against each other in high-pressure battles for serious cash. And in keeping with QuakeCon tradition, every day will be packed full of contests, conferences, announcements, and entertainment.

BYOC Registration:
Registration for the BYOC Area will kick off at 9:00pm EST on March 2, 2007 at, and if you’ve been under a rock for the last 12 years, the event continues to be FREE thanks to the support of the incredible volunteer QuakeCon Staff, id Software, and our yearly sponsors and exhibitors.

QuakeCon Room Reservations:
The Hilton Anatole is now taking room reservations for QuakeCon 2007 through their custom QuakeCon reservation link or through their toll-free reservations number, 1-800-HILTONS. To receive our specially negotiated room rate of $131 (single, double, triple, or quad occupancy), and our special daily self-park rate of $5 (regularly $15 per day), you must request the group rate for “QuakeCon 2007” or book through the link above when making your reservation. The Hotel requires a $50 non-refundable deposit on group reservations, which will be credited to your final room bill upon check-out.

Companies interested in receiving information on our totally new sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities should email [email protected]. We’ve restructured the participation options to be more inclusive and affordable than ever before, so don’t miss out.

More QuakeCon 2007 information, including airline and other travel discounts, will be available in early 2007 so stay tuned to Now, mark your calendar, book your room, request the time off, and do whatever else it takes to join us – we’re already looking forward to it.

Life on an Alien Planet Discovered

File this under cool things on TV that should keep you away from the computer for at least 2 hours. The Discovery Channel is going to have a show called Alien Planet. The premise is what if we were the ones to discover an alien planet, instead of aliens finding us. I know you are probably thinking little green men, but they look at it from a realistic approach.

What if we find another planet with life. What would that life be like? With real scientists, including the world famous Stephen Hawkings, taking a serious look at we could find out there, this is a must see show for SciFi fans or even Space Fans.

Watch the coolest footage here.
