[RDD] OT: Rotter question

I've only missed two hours the last 12 months, so for me it isn't a
problem. And with Rotter I always have problems with combining two
hours, if I wanted to rebroadcast an interview: There's some kind of
small gap when Rotter starts a new hour. With the Wget-script this
doesn't happen.

But now there's two options (and probably more) to choose from, so
that's freedom :-)

Kind regards,

Morten
