"Are you still there?" In other words....

Don't leave your computer listening to PIRN unattended. Doing so wastes bandwidth and incurrs uneccesary royalty charges (sorry to be so blunt about it). As a result of new royalty rates, Live365 will periodically ask you to verify that you really are at your computer listening to stations, so make sure to pay attention while listening.

For more information on these royalty rate increases and what Live365 is doing to try to ensure parity between broadcasters and industry, look here:
