As this particular format is typically not that friendly to those of us not using windows,

the Linux (and other non-windows OS) direct stream connections are

384kbps here: mms://ac1.streaming.net.nz/r2-stream-1

and the

2megabit stream here: mms://ac1.streaming.net.nz/r2-stream-5

if you are not sure to do it, and you are running something like Ubuntu, the easiest way is to bring up a console and type in / paste the following command:


mplayer mms://ac1.streaming.net.nz/r2-stream-1

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!


Who knows! 


but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!


I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Privacy
*Mobile Devices
*Pluto
*technology
*general and specific ramblings
*ergonomics
*Dvorak Keyboard
