My lack of locating a game has lead me to find interesting todos to keep entertained. Since Warsow didn’t play nice and Tremulous wouldn’t even start my modem is definitely tired and for the moment I’m not experimenting for a time. So I created this game one day when I discovered my brows were furrowing more than excessively.
I like to play internet radio when I am hunkering over my laptop. Sometimes I’ll get a tune in my skull that refuses to leave – this time it’s Enya. I have the Shoutcast plugin to search for artists I like to listen to. I usually can find radio station that has the singer I want, there are literally thousands of these things. Usually these are genre related so finding a singer I want lets me stick with the radio station for awhile.
Ah, “Sail Away” I like that one. So, I’m listen using Exaile to the stream and I’m thinking I like this station, my type of music. Then I hear these voices, living in a English speaking country makes one too acclimated to it. So I find its web address in information and lookup its location on IP-Android. IP-Android will find a websites physical address. Here’s what it showed me:
Stoke-a-Trent thats a peculiar name. That got me thinking. I have no idea where this is. Now I listen to a fair amount of internet radio stations and this has become kinda challenging discovering what countries these are in. So whats the game you ask? Simple try to identify the country. Where is it? What part of the country? How is your geography? This actually turns into a lot of fun as people all over the world host their own radio stations. As a geographical test I definitely am not too bad but when it is detailed as thi I’m not the absolute best. My guess since I was listening to music of Enya was that this was probably Ireland. And… well, I was close, kinda.
The Answer? Stoke-a-Trent is located dead center England, by Manchester, if you know where that is. If you think yo know you geographical locations see how you do.
