True. I had it up and running beautifully on my OS X Server box. I'll have
to build it on the Linux box to see if it works as well. So far, though, the
web interface is far better than QTSS version 3...much easier to configure.
You can randomize the playlist and add weight to certain files...for example
if you have an announcement-about-your-station file, you can have that file
played more frequently by changing its weight. I'm planning to deploy a
radio station in a school district for middle-school students, so having a
graphical interface to do this is a useful thing. 8)
