Creek: Build radio stations with other people.

Posted on 12.18.2014

Creek is an online platform with tools for broadcasting, community management, social fundraising, and content publishing.

Underneath, Creek is a white-label development framework for rapidly building websites that focus on live and recorded audio, like radio stations.

Similar to WordPress websites, each station is independent and unique, and its website exists on its own domain, rather than being part of a bigger network website (like MixCloud or 8tracks).

Finally, Creek ties together services that you already use, like Shoutcast, S3 file storage, and SoundCloud. We keep these services (and your data) in your own hands, and seamlessly connect them into one platform.

Once you get everything assembled, you will have something called a station — yeah boyee.

.NET HRESULT: 0xc8000222

Posted on 09.28.2014

.NET HRESULT: 0xc8000222 probably an error due to Windows Update not working.

Here’s a simple tip to fix this issue.

1. Run `CMD` as Administrator
2. type cmd> net stop wuauserv
3. Go to your `Windows` directory and delete or rename `SoftwareDistribution`. I recommend to just rename it on your own.
4. type cmd> net start wuauserv

That’s all and simple. Hope it helps. :)

Google Drive Web Hosting feature no longer available

Posted on 08.15.2014

Google has recently upgraded the Google Drive interface for everyone and according to the support page the web hosting feature is no longer available in the new Google Drive. You can still create public folders inside Drive but the option to publish that folder as a website is gone.

The good news however is that is still very much possible to host sites on Google Drive through Google Scripts (Written by Amit Agarwal) without you having to write a single line of code. Here are the steps involved:

  • Create your HTML website and put your HTML, JS, CSS, Images and everything else in a .zip file. Make sure there’s an index.html file in your archive. If you too lazy to create one, download this zip file.
  • Go here, authorize the app and upload your website zip file.

The app will upload the file to your Google Drive, uncompress the archive and generate a URL for your website, just like the original Google Drive. That’s it.

Internally, the app creates a folder inside your Google Drive, changes the sharing permissions to public (anyone can view, you can edit) and then generates the URL using the ID of the new folder.

There’s another workaround too. Open your Google Drive, click the “Gear” settings icon and choose “Leave the New Drive” from the dropdown. You can now publish website using the old method and then switch to the New Drive.
