Im looking forward to the new dirctory stuff jack has been working
on. As i understand and please correct me jack if im wrong, the
new directoryserver will be able to run on diffrent servers around the
world creating not only one but more places to announce
streams/stations. All in all a better solution instead of having on
shoutcast.com we could have lots of small shoutcast.com's. Hell we
could even let icecastservers use the directorystuff jack is working
on? If its possible (havn't looked at shoutcast server for ages ;-))

<p>BOFH excuse #240:

Too many little pins on CPU confusing it, bend back and forth until 10-20% are neatly removed. Do _not_ leave metal bits visible!
