I run my squeezebox from freenas its just perl code with lots of instructions available over the web - they mention this in the review that it works with readynas. Try reading!

SqueezeBox

Personally I have a squeezebox 3 hooked up a nas running freenas with the squeeze server installed via michael hergers instructions. As its running on a dedicated server which also stores all the music in .flac format no need for a pc.

As PC world are now banging the squeezebox 3 out for £80 that would be my winner as it compatible with the duet remote if you absolutely have to have pictures of the album in your hand!

British Customs

They just can't seem to get the balance right I was travelling back from Dubai a few years ago with my sister we were visiting family and for some reason I gave her my passport on the plane coming into heathrow got to customs they ask for my passport er sorry my sister has it. I'm from South Wales Woman behind desk says "no one's going to fake that accent" and waves me through. I was collecting the luggage while my sister was looking for me the other side of the barriers thinking I'd be in trouble.

Have to admire the common sense of the woman though. Who bizarrely I ran into in a pub a few weeks later back in S Wales so I guess she knew the accent still bought her a pint tho!
