Editor’s note: One “hallowed” tradition, odd as it may be, is STEC’s internal efforts to document, describe, and ultimately record the decisions made at the time. The intent, as always, is to allow future generations to better understand the circumstances under which these decisions were originally made. 

While the item here remains classified in its entirety, portions of it has been unredacted for your viewings and consideration. It is our hope that the reader walks away with a better understanding of the types of decision-making that came with the Abyssal War.

A Late (?) April Fools Joke (?): Zero’s Indie Music Radio Station

You know how each year we try to do something a bit “out there” for the team – be it ponies or horse girls or swapping the site to Russian for a day? This year’s idea is even more harebrained than I’d have thought, but here it is. Zero’s idea – an indie music radio (?) station. He’s still ironing out the bugs right now, but his intent is to provide uninterrupted audio streaming of indie artists 24/7. \

You can see some of the test runs below. Apparently, the Chinese Bilbili system can provide 24/7 uptime, and we’re trying to figure out if Youtube can do the same.

I say “late” because it is late, but it’s something Zero intends to work on with the other components of the circle. So it’s really not a joke, and the music I find to be pretty calming. I suspect he’s actually trying to integrate it into Nekoview, but that’s another story altogether.

I’m still pretty swamped by work (it’s that time of the year, after all), but we hope you’re having a good time!
