Yeah, I tried 6.0b1 and after a couple hours messing around reverted to
5.4.1. Couldn't get 6.0b1 to start properly (would hang at the starting
splash screen, yet slim and slimserver were running. Could open IE and go
to 127.xxx... and get to the browser, but it would invariably run into some
problem and hang. So I will wait for the other guinea pigs to play with
it...

Still would love to be able to stream from Jriver Media Center...

Oh, this is fun? I forgot. I'm thinking of changing my new mail sound
for the Discuss list to "The sky is falling! The sky is falling! We must
tell the king!" :)
