	if it means buying a card, then, nope.  i  assumed that the
	bits were streaming thu my cable to firefox and that thedre
	was some program that could collecte these data and stash
	them in, say , /tmp.  i'm using linux as a desktop, and FBSD
	as my server.  

	maybed i'll find where pbs has these films stashed ... or
	maybe they were only for "pledge week"  


	ps:: fwiw, that capmbell stuff was about half of the
	original.  i've got all 6 hours of audio, tho.
