Sorry to burst your bubble, nothing changes at that or any other level.

Everyones set up is differnt, so you might see features enabled on someone elses site, that will not be enabled on the winamp site. There is a test server at winamp running the new site, but I'm not giving you the URL.

Oh I do hope not, I'm sure they will do their best not to delete anyone, but you never know.....

I had a look at this when Jones tapped his nose. It doesn't look all that exciting.

You know one day someone won't moan and groan about getting something for free.

The new servers it's being loaded on will make it run approx 10x faster than it is now, or will that be to fast for you

Your cable modem won't make Winamp's servers run any faster than someone with dial-up.

no , you are relying on the server to render the page for you before it's cached down to your browser, if the server is dragging, more often than not, then it wont matter if you have an IC-3 connection or a 9.6kb modem

I personally don't want all of those options. I get confused with so much to choose from!

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com
I can't remember all the names but specifically hunting for Lascivious, and DEVOUR (compilation with Jax) and any in the Impulse series which had 6 total. Auriferous, Gilt, Impulse, Nadir, and 2 others I can't remember but you dig.
