Ahh.. that's not the problem with my 404's here, but I'll look into them

That's true, but I don't mind.. I'm building another machine here out of
spare parts for just that purpose, so I can get the sourcing off my main
(win2k) workstation machine.. I like the gui too much for these kinds of
things, and I really can't stand X.. it's a bigger hack than nullsoft stuff. ;)

Ahh.. thanks for that bit of info.
A little bit of grep, a little bit of sed, and I've got my status back to
the way I want it. :)

I think you could do the same kind of thing I did.. use grep and sed to get
the song title from the stats file, and then "cat >> " it to the file you
want it in.. a tad bit more magic to chop the head off the file if it's 11
lines long after the addition, and you're in business.

Yeah.. I don't pay a lot of attention to the list usually, but to be fair
it was down for a while and I kinda forgot it was even here.. ;)
Even so, it's a good place to come for help and stuff like that. The guys
are really busy I guess, as far as answering emails goes.. and my one
inquiry on the irc channel (it was suggested I ask there in a response to
an email) gave me the answer "read the source." ;) That was back when I
was deciphering the icy protocol.. I gave up on reading the icecast source,
it's documented about as poorly as the icy protocol itself, and just broke
out the sniffer and figured it out on my own.
