I need to dig around and find one of these; this takes me a step
closer to an all-digital show.

In fact the only missing piece apart from digital mixing is a lack of
straight-from-CD CD+G player, which is something I'm interested in
doing anyway, and I think Python can do it. Any hints or thoughts,

using Categories to tag things, too, and all entries are first-class


The link is Coral Cache-ified by the way because I'm expecting heavy
traffic in a few days; a not-so-friendly company is threatening to sue
me because I posted my experience with them on my site, and
negotiations broke down recently. I went public with the details, and
Tom Martino (the "Troubleshooter") is going to have me on his radio
program Monday to hash this stuff out. Heh. This should get
interesting fast :)
