Hi All, Its been a long time since I put anything out on the list here so I have decided to try and change that starting from today. I will Endeavour to produce and send more articles to the list for you to try out and also to help you with any problems you may be having either with following through on one of the articles posted here on the list or with something which you are involved with. Today I wanted to start off by mentioning a reasonablynew web site where you can access radio stream from if you are interested. Ifelt it was a good place to start if you have an interest in taking up thehobby of listening to radio on the web. First I will say to you that it isnot just so easy to get into downloading and listening to radio streams which is why I have chosen the "Newstalk" web site which I I came across recently with the kind help of Nora Doyle. So lets get started. The first piece of information you require is the web address of the radio site itself: www.newstalk.ie2. Open up internet explorer in whatever way you normally do and then presskeys: left alt + D, to jump you into the address box. 3. Type in the address above and press the enter key. 4. Depending on how you connect to the internet it may be slower for somepeople if they use "dial-up connection" as opposed to "broadband". Just give it time and also take into account the times of day you are connecting. Thisholds true for all web site surfing. 5. Finally our web site "www.newstalk.ie" should have loaded up and we areready to go to the "Listen to Newstalk link". There are two ways you can dothis:*. Use keys "insert + F7" to bring up a list of links and then arrow to thedesired link I have mentioned above.*. Just press the "tab key" till you find yourself on the link and press theenter key. Now our next part is to actually locate the desired medium which the "Newstalk radio stream" will be brought up in.1. After going into the "listen to Newstalk link" and you have waited a few moments for the page to load up it is time to either arrow down through thepage or bring up the links list with the keys mentioned previously. 2. The exact link we are looking for is: "window's media player logo Click here for windows media stream" You should eventually come to the link mentioned in the line above. 3. When you feel you have arrived on this link just press the "enter key" and after about 10 to 20 seconds the radio stream should come up talking.If there are any questions on this please get in touch but give it a try andsee how you get on with it. Don't expect to get it first time always, just keep practicing. Paul.
