radioPup is a personalized radio app designed for mobile devices featuring local radio stations streaming the best music and news available. Covering many genres of the best music the stations have to offer. Best of all its live radio.
But what if you didn’t want to just use your mobile device and prefer using your PC. ”Where there’s a will, there’s a way” This is where a few bits of software, a little amount of time and the need to share brings this blog post to life.
Software / Apps Used:
- radioPup App (Android, or iOS)
- Fiddler (installed on PC)
- VLC Media Player (installed on PC)
- I first installed radioPup on my Android phone and searched for a station I wanted to listen to.
- I then installed Fiddler on my PC that will be a proxy for the network request sent from my mobile device. In Fiddler you need to change the proxy settings to allow remote connections. This is done by clicking Tools > Fiddler Options > Connections and under connections check the box that reads “Allow remote computer connections”.
- On my mobile device I set the proxy settings to the Network Address of my listening computer and the proxy port used in Fiddler. In my case I am using port 8888
- Once configured I was able to see request coming from my mobile device.
- In the radioPup app I clicked on the station I wanted and it starts streaming music.
- I then go back to Fiddler to see the results.
- Here in Fiddler is where you can now copy just the URL of the steam and proceed to VLC
- Opening VLC I click in the menu and select Media > Open Network Stream
- Now pasting in the URL grabbed from Fiddler and clicking Play I am now able to listen to the station of my choosing on my PC.
- Turn the volume up and enjoy.
I updated my ESXi 5.1 server to the latest ESXi 5.5 release. The process with smooth as it has always been in the past. After updating the tools for my guests I thought it was only practical to update the hardware level of my machines… I thought wrong.
The moment I upgraded the ability to edit a guest vm’s configuration using the vSphere client. When you make an attempt a message box opens with the following: “You cannot use the vSphere Client to edit the settings of virtual machines of version 10 or higher…” And in forms you that you need to use the VMware vSphere Web Client
I was able to correct this after the fact by creating a new configuration and attaching the the disk of the machine I recently applied the update to. Now I am back in business.
Tonight I just signed up to be a Facebook Android Beta Tester. Signup was quick and simple and I am very interested to see what’s new and help report issues found during my time testing. And as always; I’ll share what I find with you all.

I ran into the following message when running an operation on one of my Exchange databases: Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access file, the file is locked or in use) after 10.79 seconds.
The operation’s I was attempting was an integrity check on a database (ESEUTIL /G database_filename.edb). When this failed with the error above. I verified that the database was dismounted and that my antivirus scanner was not locking the file.
It took me a little bit of time but I soon released that the temp file for the database would be on my system volume which did not have the space required to run this operation.
That said I ran the command again; this time specifying a location for the temp file. That command looks something like this:
ESEUTIL /G database_filename.edb /TE:\Mailbox\Temp\thisismytempfile.edb
Please note that there is no space used after the command switch /T

I have been thinking about this for a while, how I could delete those apps that I have downloaded but never intend to use “EVER” again. And if you one day decided to restore all of your apps, those come along with it. No Bueno, my friends.
I have looked up and down the Google Play Store via my PC and couldn’t find a way to do this. So I turned my focus to my phone. Yes; I found it… So say goodbye to that insanely long apps list by doing the following:
- Launch the Play Store App
- Tap the menu button and choose “My Apps”
- At the “My Apps” menu choose “ALL” – Here you will see a list of all the apps you ever installed; wow I have downloaded a lot of apps in my past.
For the apps that are no installed you can simply click the (X) in the upper right corner to remove the app. You can select multiple apps by holding down one of the apps (phone will vibrate) and you can continue to select multiple apps until you’re ready to delete them all in one swift click.
I hope this has helped you.
As always I am tinkering with my Android Phone devices for something new and fun to play with. Tonight I came across the following code: *#*#4636#*#* on the Galaxy S4 that takes me into a testing mode. Everything from DNS, Network, Wireless Radios and I can even toggle my carrier modes …
This is just one of many not so secret codes; I am sure there are apps to find more. For now this is one I find useful. Feel free to email or hit me up on the social networks if you know of more.
Recently I changed wireless access points with another of the same name. Rather than the name remaining “jermsmit.com” in windows it changed to “jermsmit.com 2″. Perhaps just me, but I found this to be a little annoying. So I jumped in the command line (as administrator) and performed the following steps
Opened the command prompt and typed:
- netsh wlan show profiles – This shows all wireless profiles on the PC
- netsh wlan delete profile name=”ProfileName” - Deletes a profile that’s out of range, you can also use a wildcard “*” to remove all that match.
During my research on how to do this I have found the following: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/manage-wireless-network-profiles
Today I wanted to have some fun with the new Android Device Manager and find my phone to test out this new feature. I ran into a snag when I logged in. The site was unable to find my device, giving me the message: “Unknown Location”.
If your like me and want to correct this, you can do the following:
- Open Google Settings from your device’s apps menu.
- Touch Android Device Manager.
- Uncheck Allow remote factory reset.
- Go to your device’s main Settings menu, then touch Apps > All > Google Play services.
- Touch Clear Data.
- Go back to Google Settings and select Allow remote factory reset.
- Restart your device.
Once done you should be able to locate your Android device.
I was in the process of updating an IIS7 Website with its newly issued Certificate when I encountered the following issue: “A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated.”
To resolve this issue:
- Opened the MMC (start > run > type: mmc)
- Add\Remove Snap-ins > Select Certificates > Click Add >
- Choose Computer account > Next > Local computer > Finish
- Then Clicked OK
Now under Certificates (Local Computer)
- Select Personal > Certificates
- Removed the Certificate that was giving me the problem
Again under Certificates (Local Computer)
- Select Personal > Certificates
- Right Click Certificates > All Tasks > Import…
- Click Next > Browse to the new certificate (*tip: use all items view)
- Select the certificate to import and click Open > Click Next
- After entering your password; ensure the following are selected: Mark this key as exportable…., and Included all extended properties.
Once done, I returned to IIS and attempted to change the certificate to my new one, and it works without issues. I think this is some sort of bug with IIS7, perhaps there is a fix. For now this works and that’s all I need.
The following system event ID was shown 36870: A fatal error occurred when attempting to access the SSL server credential private key. The error code returned from the cryptographic module is 0x8009030d. The internal error state is 10001.
A custom rom is a modified Android OS (operating system) that you can install on your device. These roms are developed by open sources developers such as the xda developers.
Think of custom roms as tinting your car glass or even as adding ground effects to pimp out your ride (car). The customization’s seem to be limitless.
Some things these rom’s do is allow you to use features that are locked out of the phone that you purchased from your carrier (example: AT&T, SPRINT,Verizon,T-Mobile, etc…). Such features are WiFi Tethering, Bluetooth Tethering and USB Tethering. Other options and the list goes on is the ability to toggle the network down form LTE to 3G, 2G, even Edge network…
With the noon rooted / custom rom’ed devices you have the well known OTA updates that your provider sends you. In most cases it takes you way to long, if ever to get it the latest Android OS. Using custom roms you can get the latest update as soon as its released; The waiting game doesn’t exist.
As your phone get’s older, the standard updates end; you are left behind. Well this is not so with custom roms. You can get to use the latest and greatest features on the same hardware; meaning your phone is still good as long as you don’t step on it with high- heals or allow it to go for a swim.
Then there is the bloat. Most phones come out of the box with bloat. With custom roms there is none of the extra software on the phone; freeing up disk space, performance and battery life.
Rooting and installing custom roms isn’t a simple task; however there is a lot of information out there to guide you through the process.
Good luck and jack your phone out of the Matrix and be free.
