Q: Do You
Report Geri Halliwell news?
A: Yes we do, since SoloSpiceNews.com reports about the
Spice Girls' solo projects this includes Geri as well.
Q: Do you have any of the Spice
Girls' email addresses or AOL/IM Screen Names? Can I have them?
A: We do not have the email address or screen name of any
Spice Girl. Even if we did do you think we'd just give it out?
Furthermore we have no way of relaying any messages to the Spice
Girls so please refrain from sending us anything intended for any of
the Spice Girls.
Q: Did it
cost you to get the domain SoloSpiceNews.com?? How much does it
cost? What server is it running on?
A: Of course! They don't give these things away for free
ya know, well at least not anymore. See Network Solutions for
information and pricing on registering a domain. The actual server
the site is running on is a nice and cheap german host called "Puretec"
Q: When will this particular Spice
Girl come to this city/country?
A: Check the Tour Dates
page. All upcoming concert information is there. As for non-concert
visitation, everything we know about their plans we post to the main news page.
So we do not personally have any additional information about this
topic apart from what is posted on the site.
Q: When is this particular CD,
product, music video, or television appearance going to be available
in [insert country here]?
A: Search through the latest news
archives. If it wasn't posted, then we don't know.
Q: Where do you get all this news!?
A: A lot of different sources. Primarily from online UK
publications such as The Sun,
The Mirror, Sunday Mirror, The Telegraph, Megastar, People UK, dotmusic, worldpop, NME, Annanova, People News, Yahoo! UK News, etc. We also
get news from some Spice Girls mailing lists(such as spicelist2),
message boards, as well as the news that is submitted by all of you
and of course anything else we find out about by ourselves and any
other personal methods any of the updaters have.
Q: Can I become part of SoloSpiceNews? Can
I join the team? How can I contribute?
A: Thank you for your interest and support. None of the
SoloSpiceNews team ever asked to be a part of the site.
SoloSpiceNews people are chosen from within the Spice Girls
community based on their contributions and character and then asked
if they would like to join the site. If we need some more people or
replacements and you are that good, we will find you and ask you.
However we do appreciate your willingness to contribute. The best
thing you can do to help us is just submit news, or newly release
Q: Some of the
links to older audio or video are broken.
A: Multimedia usually takes up a LOT of bandwith and
server space, so we are unfortunetly not able to keep it up forever,
so the best idea would be downloading everything as fast as possible
and share it with other people and spread it on the net
Q: You should
add a forum, why don't you have a forum (or x website feature) ?
A: We set up a forum called "Denden" which can be accessed by clicking
here. There's also a graphics-lite version which can be
- If you are looking for a good mailing list, you might want to
check out spicelist2, or
- If you are looking for some realtime chat, check out #SpiceChat, to which
we have a local access point here.
Q: How do you convert
Realaudio to MP3?
A: If you have a downloaded RealAudio file, you can use an
older version of Streambox
Ripper that will directly do this. The new versions of StreamBox
Ripper do not touch RealMedia however because they lost a
court battle with RealNetworks over this. The last
version that did RealAudio conversions was 2.009, and you can still
find this version on the net, try some search
engines. Do not email us asking for it, we won't send it to you.
If it's a streaming RealAudio file, try saving it with a program
called X-Fileget(if you can find it), then use Streambox Ripper on
it. This does not work very often these days however, since the
streaming servers upgraded their protocol while X-Fileget did not.
The only option you have left at this point is to simply record the
audio as it streams. To do this you need a good soundcard that can
record "What You Hear". Select that option in your Volume Control
Mixer, and hit record in your favorite Audio Editor(CoolEdit is recommended for
Windows users), and start playing the stream. Make sure your
recording sound levels are correct! Then simply save the recorded
file as a Wav file and make it into an MP3(or save it directly to
is the date on the newest post older than the one below it?
A: We are all in different parts of the world.
Califronia(USA), Australia, Germany, Canada, Holland. So our time
zones are different and we don't have a syncronized timestamp
system. So you can get scenarios where the newest post was posted by
MikeMGMVE, who is in California, but Australia(which is where LukeP
is) is almost a full day ahead of California and that post is not
the latest, but dated ahead of the latest.
Q: Who are you? How old are you? Where do
you live? What do you do? Whats up with you?
