hello everyone!

first of all, thanks to all software authors and documentation writers 
for a great piece of work !

i'm test-driving an icecast2 relay on a rather crappy network 
connection. to hammer on it, i was listening to the stream with xmms 
while doing a couple of parallel wget -O - http://..mystream 2&>1 
 >/dev/null from another machine. however, as few as 5 parallel wgets 
would reproducably stall the streaming .
is wget not a suitable test load, or did i do something wrong in my 
icecast setup ?



If you're happy and you know it, bomb Iraq.
