A while ago, AOL's Shoutcast moved its directory from yp.shoutcast.com
to www.shoutcast.com and changed the format into a
needlessly-javascript-and-cookie-using user-interface disaster so I
guess you'll need to upgrade anything that downloads station lists.

One alternative station list is http://dir.xiph.org/ but it's different
and not as big as shoutcast.

Hope that helps,
