I kinda think this is an outrage:

Quoted from RAIN August 2, 2002


DMX Music, which provides commercial-free music programming to digital cable and satellite television customers across the country, has now entered the Internet streaming arena.

Their twelve-channel Net radio service is called the DMX Music Playground. The system is powered by technology from XACT Media, which also designed Internet-only "side channel" systems for broadcast radio websites. XACT also provides technology and music programming for car stereo manufacturer Jensen, Cablemusic, and Coors.

This is easily overcome by waiting a few seconds, then clicking the "Skip" button.)

"Injustice, poverty, slavery, ignorance - these may be cured by reform or revolution. But men do not live only by fighting evils. They live by positive goals, individual and collective, a vast variety of them, seldom predictable, at times incompatibl
