Love your Radio

I thought my RadioLover wasn’t working yesterday. Turns out I was probably being a spaz. I assumed because the MP3 hadn’t changed in several minutes that it wasn’t writing. Today, when my schedule triggered it to record World Cafe I left it alone and forgot about it. At one point, it went like 5 minutes without changing and then I heard a lot of disk drive clackety clack. I’m guessing this thing has a pretty big internal buffer, and only flushes it out to disk periodically. My thought that it would be writing constantly led me astry. With any luck, this will make my computer be kind of like TiVo for streaming radio. I set up my schedules, forget about them, and then go back and listen at my leisure. Papa likes!
