Oh my god........    I am now standing in the corner of the room wearing a
 big pointy hat with a D on it................

Now comes stupid question number 2. Would I be correct in assuming it is my
responsibilty to output some handy info to a browser like....what track is
actually playing?  Right now I have just hacked a cgi together to look at
the ices.cue file but is there a "recommended" approach.

Thanks for the hefty whack with the clue stick.
