figured it out! I have a dynamically allocated IP address - and i was
entering a dynamic DNS name in the shoutcast server config expecting it

see why my dynamic name isn't being resolved (perhaps it can't be with

re. 44.1 and stereo/mono: As well as doing streaming, my system will be
providing local playback at full bandwidth (ie. it's going to be play
44.1 material for listeners at an actual installation). My software can
support downsampling, enabling support for a number of sampling rates -
but it's a nasty sounding algorithm so i'll leave it at 44.1. The
shoutcast service (audiorealm.com) is fixed in stereo unfortunately.

Thanks for your help.
