PhilanthroTech: TigerDirect.com Donates Computer Room to Local Miami School

TigerDirect’s PC Charity Race took community to a whole new level!  I mean, this local church/school/community center was begging for an upgrade! Current computer lab at Ebenezer Christian AcademyI’m not talking about the usual Windows 7 to Windows 8 upgrade, more like a no computer situation – 3 computers for 80 students, to a whole room of computers kind of upgrade. Lonny Paul, our VP of Marketing here at TigerDirect thought it would be a pretty legit idea to donate the remaining computers from our PC Charity Race held earlier this year, to Ebenezer Christian Academy. After visiting the school, Lonny reailized it was only eight computers, and it was not enough! Lonny did his thing, got to work and made it happen with ULTRA and several other component vendors.

Boxes of brand spankin’ new SYX Computers, ULTRA PC Cases and PC components crowded the stage as we presented the children with their new gifts. It was so humbling to be amongst such passionate determined children. Many of the students we’re of Haitian descent, and have family in Haiti that they cannot really afford to keep in touch with. “These computers” Stated the Director, will not only improve our education, it will connect families together and provide endless opportunities to our children, for them to become doctors, lawyers, and engineers!”

Record online radio stream Easily with Screamer Radio

screamer radio ssRecording online streams is something I haven’t done in years – but a friend was to perform on the local public radio station, so I quickly had to find something that would work. After a quick Google search, I found myself reading an article about some of the top stream recording applications out there.

Screamer Radio was a featured application, and free, so why not? I installed it expecting to probably download another, as it usually happens with freeware – but this time I was pretty surprised!

Screamer Radio took the MP3 stream URL quickly and was playing in sync with my browser (does that ever happen?), so I closed the browser, the stream continued, then I was able to click “REC” to start the recording process, now it’s seamlessly recording the audio stream in full stereo.

If you have a situation arise where you need to record a stream for some reason (like a friend performing or a live event you wish to hear again), check out Screamer Radio. It provides a quick and easy reliable solution for recording online streams for free.

Remember that all online streams are covered by some type of copyright, so please follow the rule of law for your location.
