Add your favorite webradio in Rhythmbox

If like me you like to listen radio while working on your computer but you don't like to have it open on a webpage. And if you find very useful the way how rhythmbox mutes itself when you get a call, you need then to add your radio in your favourite audio program. The problem is that it's not always obvious to find the url to use for the radio media. So this is how to proceed:
  • you need to install ngrep
  • run it like this :
       ngrep -d p3p1 -lqi -p -W none ^get\|^post tcp dst port 80
    (-d p3p1 is used to specify the interface if you have multiple choices)
  • open in your browser the page you use to listen the radio usually
  • find the stream you are looking for in ngrep's output:
  • add it to rhythmbox and you are done ;)

LinuxConf Europe 2007 in Cambridge

This a bit a late entry but I was so busy with holidays, new job and the announce of a future new GNU/Linux user (for april, see his/her blog).

So I was in Cambridge for the LinuxConf Europe 2007 from 1st to 5th September.

The conferences were very nice, the level of the technical talks was high and I appreciated it :-)

The following pictures illustrate my multi-tasks capacity, I'm working very hard while reading my new PHP5 book :

Something I was very surprise was to find some Apollinaris water, I thing it was close to 15 years that I didn't drink/see any, so I had to take a shot of it :
