G'day all,

I had a rummage through the code and did a bit of googling.
It looks like slimserver in the past used to ignore '.' files I.E. .ignore_me but now it doesn't, ot at least I could not find the code that did the ignoring, I see there is something about ignoring files that start with __.

Does not help be, when I want other use unix apps :-(
Any reason why it could not be put back in?

It was removed intentionally a while back. Songs with names that start
with . (especially "...") are rather common.

OK,

So I create either

..ignore
__ignore

or
__ignore
.ignore

Probably the first one and that will satisfy all!
