i hope this is a sign i've finally patched all my install issues. i often listen to this online radio station (Mad Mikes Radio for those who like variety, it's local here--broadcasts near where i work) that appears to only support Windows. not true! of course, on my Mac i can use iTunes, and add it as a stream. so i wondered 'is it that easy in Linux?' well, apparently it is! open up Rhythmbox, Ubuntu's answer to iTunes, and do the very same thing! other than wondering why nothing happened at first (it didn't exactly tell me anything, i had to find the section where it added it) it plays perfectly fine. not the most intuitive UI, but still, worked as fast. i can only hope this is a sign it's all fixed.
