That strange feeling...

Sometimes i have that strange feeling that people are trying to make fun of me.

Just know i've had this feeling again, i've tried to go to a webpage of local radio that also uses internet for the broadcast so i could hear FC Barcelona vs AC Milan soccer match.

The interesting thing is that you can not make it work under linux because they're using a Flash 8 animation to load the audio player!

That itself is awful enough but what is even *nicer* is that once i've went into windows, loaded that flash 8 movie there's a "if you have linux click on this link". WTF! How can i be seeing that in linux if flash8 does not work on it? And even better the link does not work! :-D

Come on, can't you just give me a damn url...

Why not just see it on TV. I also think there is a FF extension which shows live football scores, not sure for which tournaments though.

Could that be Catalunya Radio? ;-) My wife is Catalana and we live in Germany...so for her the possibility to listen to that radio over internet is very important.
It's a real shame! You are so right! All they should do is just give us the fscking URL so that we can open the stream in Mplayer or whatever...!

Bingo! Catalunya Radio is the bad one ;-)

And to nikhil, i did not see it on TV because it was not on TV! :-D

Some days ago I got it.


Now they aren't using Flash 8, "only" Flash 7.
