Thanks for all your work, but I'm still having trouble when testing the
installation using

slim --d_plugin

... And get the following output. Note that the AlienBBC menu is available
on the SB, but not through the web interface.

Any suggestions?

Right. Sorry 'bout that folks. So far... in all of slimserver-dom, only one
user managed to battle their way through all the deliberate mistakes we put
into AlienBBC v0.90, and was rewarded by it working on Windows (nice work,

However... we now feel that perhaps we set the bar a little high, so we've
relented, and released a beta version with a makerelease script written by
somebody with a brain slightly larger than a grape. Maybe you'll all find
this one a trifle easier.

It's bumped to version 0.91 so you can tell the difference, and it has the
'.ra' filetype added, which will help with most of the 'Other Streams' menu,
too. That's fixed on both Linux and Windows packages. And I've updated the
install docs to remind Windows users that we like codecs if we're to get any
sound out.

So. If you've still have the energy, see if that one treats you any better.

As ever, AlienBBC is available from: http://www.mrtickle.org/alienbbc.html

Oh. And finally - Daniel has kindly provided smoe more comprehensive
v0.12 MacOS/X install instructions. I've not had time to format them nicely,
so blame him for that, not me. They're on the site, though, so people can
get to them if they're keen enough!
