[icecast] Wanted: Ogg Stations Directory

I've been thinking, yes not a good thing sometimes.  I want to listen to
Ogg Vorbis streams.  As far as I know there is only the yp directory on
Oddsocks website to easily find vorbis streams in one place, but it
doesn't reflect the actual number of streams in existance.  A carefully
worded goggle search turns up quite a few more but it is time consuming
to load every website, find the stream link, and find the music is not
my taste.

Windows Media Player has a large and convenient searchable "Radio Tuner"
directory with hundreds of stations.  In my opinion what we (the Ogg
Vorbis) community needs is a friendly web directory of all stations.  It
could be either managed by the owner or via automatic submissions.

So, I've verbalized an idea but I don't have the time or knowhow to do
it myself, so any takers?  I'm sure all streamers will want to be
listed.  I can provide a few links I've collected.

Ross Levis.
