[Icecast] Server question - if you had ...

Yeah, I'll agree with that - CPU use is minimal on a dedicated machine so 
low spec server will do just fine.

Our stats here show peaks at around 60-70 listeners and as you can see the 
CPU use is almost none existent - high quality bandwidth is where the money 
should be spent.

Oh and lots of disk space if you intend archiving the streams.

Our stats are at: http://stats.tianet.co.uk/ if interested

Hey, guy, you just need 300$ to buy pII-500 and stream 25 stream's up to 500
users :)

SC> What box, hard drives, LAN cards, etc.?
SC> The project I am involved with is helping community groups in UK webcast

SC> Because we archive webcasts, we might deploy two servers working
