Easy listening: nerd style

Have you ever wondered what nerds and geeks REALLY listen to? While I cannot speak for the rest of the world, I can say that I happen to listen to a lot of Japan-a-radio and Digitally Imported. This is a live-audio stream feed that is sent through your broadband connection much like a radio signal, except that the quality much better depending on the system being used. You can find a list at Shoutcast or iRadiocast. How do I do this? I use Winamp (when I’m bound to Windows), xmms (linux), and mpg123 (linux-console).
When I can’t listen to the radio, I buffer up the things that I want to listen by using Streamripper. This program can be used for Windows or Linux and can buffer up music as long as your broadband connection is up and you have harddrive to spare. It basically pulls the radio stream right onto your harddrive.
So join the ranks today, use and support Internet broadcast radio.
