I've got a dilema. For months, I've been planning and implementing 
a large project involving vorbis, ices2, icecast2 and wifi networking.

The plan is to stream live audio from 10 Austin nightclubs during 
the SXSW music festival this March.

10 old Mac G3s running Gentoo Linux, OpenSSH and Ices2 (from CVS).
10 Wifi access points / antennas.

At the 'net end of things:
1 access point / antenna connected to an Apple Xserve running Gentoo
Linux and Icecast2 (from CVS), as well as Apache, PHP, and OpenSSL.
