Hi all

Just signed up for a SqueezeNetwork account, fired up SoftSqueeze at work and was setting up my account and listening to music within minutes. :)

Great work.

Cheers from Switzerland

I've just got my http://www.last.fm radio station working via the

again, it restarts the stream with a new track. Amazing, Rock my

I'm sure people have already got this running, but I've fairly
impressed that I have, and I'd not seen it posted here before...
