currently everything is working fine . .ogg for live and all new archives
, and a mix of ogg/mp3 for previous episodes-the fileserve on icecast2
deals w/ this fine .

but we have an 8hour programming day, and i want to have a constant
mountpoint (of past episodes ) that kicks in when we are not live . this
is already being done w/ fileserve , but doesn't have that 'rebroadcast'
feel b/c it is always starts at the beginning of the show .

o i don't really need to transcode anything , (all past archives are
pre-encoder either mp3-24/64kbps or ogg-dialup/hispeed variable quality
-1/7 settings )
 i figure : : determine whether the current archive is mp3 or ogg ,and
update the ices/ices2 playlists respectively (assuming i can run both
concurrently ) . one will have a 0byte playlist , the other will have the
correct episode que'd .

i think i'm all set , just so long as i can find the latest ices o.x from
cvs ! ( i posted the problem earlier ;  not sure what i'm doing wrong here
_ i log in fine, but i get errors on checkout - using info from
cvs.icecast.org ).
