I missed a radio programme at the weekend (grrr)...
...but fortunately, the BBC provide Real Audio streams of previous programmes on their web site. That's very handy, but (a) my home Internet connection isn't very fast, and (b) I don't want to listen to Real Audio over a slow connection - it gets all choppy and broken up.
I found a way round this. A piece of software called libreplay lets me capture the Real Audio stream to a file on disk (which is apparently frowned upon) so I can take it home and listen to it later. Fab!
