Ah cool! I'll look into it. I wasn't aware of it, but am reading the 
wikipedia article on it now. I'm always looking for tools for this kind of 
stuff.

The automation software that is sending the audio to the encoder also 
triggers scripts that talk directly to icecast to update the stream title 
with current song and what not. It's beaufitul when it's all running.

Cool! Will check into those. Wasn't aware they exist. I've been using 
Darkice and icecast forever, and recently moved to the hardware encoder 
and icecast.
