I appreciate everyone's response.  It's glad to see there are others out
there...

However, I still have seen a number of posts that have gone unanswered and
some frustrated users (keyword: users) such as myself.

Currently my issues are:
Unable to start icecast from init.d (error: "You can run, but you can't
hide" repeatedly output until it almost crashes my box)

Unable to reliably re-encode VBR for my ices source.  Crashes frequently.
My understanding is that this is on the TODO list.  I'm just wondering if
there's an alternative console based source that will work ok.

Any help would be appreciated.

Wade

<p>Ahah.

I will end this here.

I misread the newsgroup address on the original 'what's happening here',
assuming it was for the vox group, which encourages idle rubbish.  I hit
reply, and believed I was mailing to this group.  I apologise for wasting
the bandwidth if icecast group members with such things.

This is also why I did not hide my headers.  If you like, mail me off-list
and I will also supply you with any details you wish to know.

I have found this group (icecast) to be particularly useful, as is any group
made up of specialists in a particular subject.  Keep up the good work!
