Anybody know how to set up your own internet radio station? Like what you'd need as far as software and equipment. This would be for indie bands etc..

http://www.shoutcast.com read up there, thats still good if you're using *nix as well. But look for icecast instead.

Hold on now.

OS X can run tons of *nix software. If you can't get the actual shoutcast server to work, try icecast, it more than likely runs well in Mac OS.

Too true. Sony Beta was [u]demonstrably[/u] superior to VHS, but completely lost the market to technohicks that wanted to record up to six hours of their favourite low-fi drivel on each cassette.

Macs, on the other hand, are only [u]arguably[/u] superior, and lost major market share due to incompatibility issues with any other hardware or software.

{shrug} Not the same thing at all.

I don't use OSX cause it's not compatible with any of the audio software I use. If I upgrade it means replacing thou$ands of bucks worth of VST plug-ins.

Humm, I used to be a devout PC-a-holic, I currently own 3, two operating at well over 1.5 GHz.

I recently got me a 1.25 GHz G4 powerbook and it paddles (and then kicks) the behind of any PC I have ever been any where near ! OSX.3 (Panther) is not perfect...but relative the to Microsoft alternative well, there is no comparison !

So don't be MAC-a-phobes ! The are very cool bits of kit and as for the G5, it is just ball breakingly powerful, I’m not ever joking, check out the specs (and the price) !

I no longer worry about viruses, plug and play (MACs have had it before it was even given a name), networking, printer sharing, viruses, popups, viruses and oh did I mention networking and viruses !

The only bad thing is the price !
(15' G3 powerbook came in at just over 3k...pooo !)

... all of which supports my point that it is [u]arguably[/u] superior. :p
