        Apologies for the delay; a buddy dropped by for awhile.  My 
        last post fetched some  non-NPR site that I figure was the "adv"
        that helps pay for the songs/talk space and bandwitdh.  I finally

        "mplayer rtsp://foobar/..../"

        and it loooked as though the entire don would take 20-30 minutes to
        download.  Not a problem;  this ex-hacker turnd singer (V. Teng)
        has a voice worth waiting for.  My IDSL like is 144k... pretty
        slow.  I'll test with the -dumpaudio -dumpfile "xyz" and see what


        Rats. Here's what happened whn I added the two switches to mplayer.
        Anybody know why the streamm bmbed out??
