IBC-Radio has been streaming for quite awhile. I'm sure he's fully aware of why Live365.com pulled the plug and that it was them that did it. . .not NullSoft.
If anything, he's trying to get people talking and doing things, but he isn't dumb. He knows that Live365.com nixed sending data to the SHOUTcast directory. Thus the reason he was using Oddsock's YP Lister to get back in the SHOUTcast dir. until NullSoft blocked the YP Lister.
Who can blame him? If only a few Live365.com streams are streaming in the SHOUTcast dir., their listener counts sky rocket! When I had the bandwidth and streamed a small server to the SHOUTcast dir., my stream was packed.
*sigh* Oh the days of plenty of bandwidth. . .now. . .back to a 56k modem. Rat farts.
But. . .when Live365.com and NullSoft come to terms and ALL of Live365.com's streams flood into the SHOUTcast dir.,. . .well, once again there will be too many streams and too few listeners.
