Awesome!  Can ya help a brotha' out and send some links to the slim  
protocol?  I suppose Google could find it for me, but if you're  
familiar with the project then I'd appreciate an insider's pointers.

A friend has some old slim hardware, and I've been trying to help him  
with converting files for playback, so I do have a little bit of  
experience with the history.
