08:16:00 PMorangeman I will refesh
08:16:31 PMsr_wences Orangeman - when you refresh, et us know if you get a splash screen that says something like "off the air"

08:17:00 PMorangeman that correct
08:17:09 PMsr_wences Yep. I'm near the one in Cambridge MA and they are $30 there.

08:19:56 PMsr_wences I'm just here for the witty banter.
08:21:21 PMsr_wences My PI 1 i running as MiniDLNA server and Google Cloud server and it is fine for that. I feed my Chromecast audio from that and I'm a happy camper.
