Actually it can be done seamlessly - since our softwae is backed up on network srevers we can continue to stream if we either have no computer or lose power temporarily. Our IT dept. is pretty responsive and would be able to replace our computer within a day or two.

OK - yeah mixer definately dosent need to be big - in fact 4 channels is most likely enough - maybe 8 to be safe - but theres really not much high-end in that small of size - do you know of any good small ones? And i dont see expansion happening - except for a Mobile DJ setup next budget term...
