Re: streaming live shows

streaming directly from your own machine will be ok, if the line you are
on has the bandwidth to serve all the listeners you might have, but, it's
been my experience that the bandwidth is never enough...

I don't know if you've seen my gig announcements here, but the band I am
in plays about once a month on the internet... as well, I've been involved
in streaming audio since about '97 and I'd be glad to talk about the 
with you offlist.. :)
