Dear Mr. 'Sock --

First let me say "Major Thanks!!!" for your work in developing the Oddcast 
plugin.  I'm putting it to great use and will send you an article that I 
recently published regarding my usage of the software...

I have a couple of questions I'm wondering if you can help me with...

(1) Is there a version (any version) of a streaming source feed for Linux 
that behaves correctly with the Shoutcast directories (yp.shoutcast.com) 
beyond SC_TRANS from Nullsoft?  I'm running Oddcast/Winamp3 into a Linux 
version of the Shoutcast Server but it doesn't seem to recognize the 
metadata correctly.  Ices2?

(2) As mentioned above, SC_TRANS seems to be the only viable 
Shoutcast-friendly streaming system.  Problem is, it seems to only like 
44100-based streams, which is problem when all my source materials are 
16kbps/11025khz.  Any work-around for this?  SC_TRANS doesn't seem to have 
any support for relays from my understanding...

(3) I'm currently evaluating a Darwin from Apple as a (*gasp*) alternative 
to Icecast/Icecast2.  The primary reasons are video support, strong iTunes 
support, and very nice admin GUI/docs for the non-technical among use.  I'm 
able use Shoutcast as a relay for this system, but again, I've been unable 
to make the Shoutcast directories recognize the stream.  Ideally, I have 
one streaming source (in this case Darwin) and multiple relay servers that 
push the data into the various services and directories.

Thanks again for all your help.
