There was much hemming and hawing between Dean and me, concerning
whether *existing* software should be acceptable for the plugins
contest.

If yes, then Softsqueeze almost certainly wins, and the contest is a
bust. If no, then Richard gets the short end of the stick.

So,

Richard, what'll it be, an iBook or a Tektronix scope?

And on behalf of SDI and our our customers, thank you for SoftSqueeze.
:)

I concur, SoftSqueeze should win hands down. (I don't leave the house
without it!)

Just to be clear here, the "Squeezebox Plugins Contest" is not just for
plugins, check out the details on our website:

http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_contest.html

where it says "Any sort of software or hardware hack is welcome".

And as you might expect, the point of the contest is to encourage new
development, so existing software/hardware are not eligible, but
significant improvements to existing projects are.

That said, we recognize that Richard's contribution to the Slim Devices
community has already been substantial and we'd like to say Thank You
with a sort of "Lifetime Achievement Award" in the form of a nice
prize, similar to the grand prize of the contest. This is in line
with our existing policy of sending Thank You gifts to community
members who make significant contributions.

So, the contest is still going on and we're excited to see what
everybody comes up with.

Thanks so much,

dean

Well, it's subjective, but the improvement itself needs to be
substantial enough to merit an award.
