Further to a suggestion I made some time ago, the latest in You and
Yours' series on DIY is to be broadcast tomorrow (Thursday 4th
September) from 12 mid day on Radio 4. The programme will be followed by
a "live webchat".
Although the official subject for the item will be loft conversions I
believe that there may be scope to introduce questions about the
anti-DIY proposed electrical regulations. I will not be in a position to
participate, so thought I'd bring this to the collective attention of
the group in case anyone else fancied a go.

I was interviewed for the programme as they were interested in experiences
(good and bad) of loft conversions, so interested that they visited to have
a look at mine. No idea whether they'll be using the material but I'm
looking forward to tomorrow lunchtime to find out. (Maybe) fame at last!
Good luck with getting a bit of exposure for the proposed wiring regs - good
Right, I'm sorry I didn't realise I was listening to you!
Like all communications media they always over edit though and end up
telling the story they want to tell. It makes it difficult for the listener/
viewer/reader to make up his/her mind about something, I find.
Or perhaps I'm too picky :-)
How did you do that then?
I thought these Real Audio downloads were designed in such a way they
couldn't be recorded without some special cracking software. The name
Streambox comes to mind, but even then I think it was quite a rigmarole.
When I've wanted something I had to record the audio out of my sound card
on a conventional tape machine. -perhaps that's what you did?

Here's a couple of explanations

Thanks for your help,
The links provided some useful info, but the sites have more cookies and
probably worse, than I could shake a stick at, so after visiting I'll have
to clean out my computer.
The solutions seem to fall into two types:
1. 'Crackers' to capture the original source file, eg Streambox as I
2. Software to enable recording of the sound card audio channel.
I'm rather disappointed that my sound card from Creative doesn't enable
recording the audio channel as a matter of course. Feel as if I bought a
car with no steering wheel. I'll be looking for this feature built in
with the next sound card I buy.
'Total Recorder' will let you record whatever you like by inserting it's own
drivers ahead of the sound card. It'll cost $12 to record more than 30
seconds, but you may stumble upon a 'tweak' that removes the 30 second
