I follow your believes and views... however if things are simple then 
providing an answer is also simple (i.e man ices or "use background 
mode"). I certainly don't wish to be spoon feed just pointed in the 
right direction. After all the purpose for joining this list was so I 
could join a community of like minds. In the end I know I can find a 
solution, but if the case is that everyone finds a solution by themselfs 
then this list is pointless. Shared problems often equal faster solutions.

1. my comment was not directed to you as an individual, as indeed the 
answers you gave displayed your knowledge. (i.e. you stated what you 
knew) I MUCH prefer that than babble about nothing.

2. Yes icecast2 is UNSUPPORTED.. not unsupportable! that's why I'm here!

3. For Icecast2 there is valid reasons for the level of support... But 
what about icecast1's Documentation? We all know that it is lacking 
thats why I started using this group.
