Hi Folks.

Right. Think I'm basically winning with the parser changes AlienBBC.
Expect a release out tonight before I turn in.

While I've got you all, though - has the Radio 2 parser been slightly
wonky for a while, or has it been as a result of
changes made to the site today? It's definately not working quite right
at the moment.

Wish I could help, but I haven't listened to Radio 2 in the last 35
years :-)

Just a little point.

But for those people who dont check the lists (I do) would it be
possible to include code in the BBC parser that checks your website if
there is an update.

That way people know when they need to upgrade AlienBBC (because the bbc
changed things) instead of getting angry at slimserver!

Hehe.

I thought about doing that a while back, John. Didn't implement it -
largely because until recently, AlienBBC really wasn't 'complete' enough
to be something you could forget about that much.

We might stick something in for a future non-beta release. The current
Transcoderless branch is moving a little quickly to make it worth it, I
reckon. You've got a point about BBC site changes, though.
