SHOUTcast

Shoutcast is a program released for Winamp, and by the creators of Winamp. Basically it allows anyone to connect to your ip and listen to whatever you’re playing on Winamp. Sort of a net broadcaster. Anyway I found it a good way to use up the upload portion of my bandwidth (see above post). If you catch me online, and want to partake in my (awful? weird? bizarree? interesting?) taste in music, open up winamp, hit control-L and enter http://my.ip.here:8000 where my.ip.here is my ip as found in my ICQ info box. You might need me to start the server if it isn’t already going :). Sticking to my self-proclaimed net motto, Gotta use up that spare bandwidth!™
