	i usually use kmplayer because i can kill it o r click-on to kill/stop.

	i was looking at a particular show on national public radio [NPR] nd wound up
	at the podcast section.  i think, am not certain, that if i select the 'podcast'
	thing, this show will show up daily or weekly, whatever ....  rather than me having to
	spent minutes of finding Show, finding archive place, and then selecting 
	Stream or Podcast.

	if i'm not making enough sense, i'll wait until i've had  a good night's sleep!


	PS:  DEfinite offtopic but i may have found a legit ebook publisher ... they pod 
	publish in us, canada, and in europe.  [[i had no idea it'd be this hard just 
	finding the right place. =sigh=]]
