The reason I ask about the sound card is because i tried a few, like 
muse, and it wanted a /dev/dsp which i could not get working properly. 
What about dynamic passwords? How does one do that? I read in a forum 
that a 'kill -HUP' on the PID will reload the config, but also read that 
it doesn't reload the entire config. Do you have any recommendations on 
what apps to use?
