-NOTES
+TECHNICAL NOTES
 
 1. A note on genres: with IceCast, each server lists one or more words as its "genre". Two approaches are possible:
 - Treat each string as a whole category name; I don't like this, because "pop rock" and "rock pop" will appear as two different genres
 - Split each string into words and use each word as a separate category; this way, "pop" and "rock" will appear only once, but most stations will apear in more than one genre. This
  is the current behaviour.
 
-2. To speed up processing and decrease network load (the full IceCast XML is over 3 MB), the add-on sets up a local cache file. When you first run the add-on, it gets the XML from the IceCast server; it is then cached and reused until you quit the add-on.
+2. To speed up processing and decrease network load (the full IceCast XML is over 3 MB with around 10,000 streams), the add-on sets up a local cache. If SQLite is available (as with standard Ubuntu release), it will be used since it is faster. If SQLite is not available, a text file will be used instead; this is slower, but still better than getting the XML off the Internet every time. The cache is updated if it is more than 1 day old. 
 
-3. Some IceCast radio stations obviously feed broken UTF-8 in their names and genres - there's nothing to do about it, complain to the radio station.

 4. The client-side search (as server-side seems unavailable with IceCast) searches in both genres and server names
