I've been a happy squeezebox owner for a couple of years - other
than the occasional 802.11 problem (not your fault), it works
great and I don't need to mess with it much. I hop onto slim-discuss
every once in a while and then get off again.

A few weeks ago, I discovered the forums (in fact, it's pretty
hard to find the mailing lists on your website - the navigation
pushes to the forum interface, but that's a different issue).

It took me a little while to realize that the forums and the
mailing lists are interlinked. That is wicked cool, and what
I'm writing to ask about - is the package that you use to
do that generally available, or did you build in house? I have
a couple of places I could use that.

I know you're using mailman (free) for the mailing lists, and
vBulletin (pay, but reasonable) for the forums. What about the
interconnect?

Thanks,
chris

You might want to search www.vbulletin.org. I did a quick search and came up with 2 or 3 good links. My guess is slimdevices is using the NNTP Gateway / Mailing list extension http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=92588.

That is correct.
