I believe Steve is just having some problems and he will be back once he gets them sorted out. Centova Cast - the script itself is a goldmine, I really don't think it will be trashed, if I had a moneymaker lick CC --- there's no way I would let it go! I also think he would fully understand we must find another control panel, we have clients to take care or, we have a business to run --- it's not personal.
We have one server down due to this -- the others are running with no cron, I installed Cast Control Media panel on the problem server yesterday -- it is different, it takes some getting used to, but it is running well, SHOUTcast v1 and sc_trans1 -- It does have SHOUTcast v2, but right now, the SHOUTcast members area is down, and has been for a while, so you can not get a YP hash, unless you saved it from earlier, and SHOUTcast 2 is still being developed. SC1 and sc_trans1 actually run at a lower load then the default Centova Cast installation -- which was SC1 and icess_cc auto dj --- many people also installed sc_trans on their Centova so you already know it is ver stable.
So yea, Cast Control is actually doing great -- you can schedule playlists, web based or ftp uploads, same with Sonic --- we had already been running 2 sonic servers for a couple years --- it's ideal for clients who have dj's they oversee, and our packages include free hosting, you get the nice custom player scripts, sc_trans 2 and SC1 ---
In my book, Centova is still king for auto dj's, Sonic for DJ's and a all-in-one package deal you can offer your clients it's amazing. Cast Control supports everything, even video and does a great job at delivering quality tunes to your clients!
