10/29   How do I save a real audio file off the web? If I right-click on a
        real audio link and do "Save link as" it just saves the link and
        not the actual .ram file
        \_ If it's off a real media server, then you need Real Player Plus
           (not the free version) to download it. If it's just a file on
           a server, then you can right-click + download.
           \_ Most RealPlayer (.ram) files on the net have been designted
           copyrighted so they can not be saved even with Real Player
           Plus.  So don't buy it thinking you can save a bunch of
           RealPlayer files afterworrds, I have yet to use this feature.
           \_ ?? I have used netscape to download, then play, .ram files.
              trouble is, I had to wade through HTML to find the real
              path sometimes.
           \_ It really depends on what server they are using.  If they
              are using a pnm:// (I think it's pnm) protocol, then good
              luck.  If it's just on a web site (eg: http:// then you can
              easily grab the file.  What I'd like to know if if one could
              figure out a way of keeping track of pnm packets, time-
              stamping them, and then doing a fake retranmission of them
              to Real Player whenever you want to listen.  If you have a
              clear transmission the first time, this would in essence
              allow one to get the full thing on their hard drive, whether
              or not it's protected.   (or for that matter, one could
              simply hook their line-out into a tape deck, but that's too
        \_ Try just going into the advanced application portion of the
           preferences file (in netscape not sure about IE) and setting
           the option to ask before downloading for .ram files. This
           should allow you to save the file, not sure if it gets around
           the problem with the time stamps, I am pretty sure it does not.

10/30   Where is a good web site to obtain Northern Cal traffic data? For
        example, the average MPG, throughput, etc in different sections?
        \_ Try (dot = Dept. of Trans. aka Caltrans)
        \_ <DEAD><DEAD> KICKS BUTT. Real time map and speed.
        \_ YKYBUCTLW you see this question and it takes you half a minute
           to realize it's not about Internet traffic.
           \_ What does MPG mean to you?
