	*This* is exactly what  I was going to ask about next:
	if we could all post streaming sites.  Oe of my favorites is[many substream URL's].

	Thanks for thhe Guide, Nikolas!  

	Another thing I've been wondering about is xmms-faad2
	which is mp4 or a High Effiency decoder of "aac"(?)
	streams that only require 24kpbs to yeild fairly high
	fidelity sound.  Does anybody know anything about how
	xmms-faad2 works with good ol' xmms??  (I'm completely
	new to most of this--streaming sites.  But then just got
	new speakers w/bass boombox!)  So any tips will be very
