  1. you are a PIRATE. TAKING MONEY AWAY FROM ART BELL AND KEITH ROWLAND AND THE DARK MATTER DIGITAL NETWORK. INSTEAD OF DOING ALL THIS WHY DON’T YOU JUST PAY FIVE YES JUST $5 DOLLARS A MONTH TO SUPPORT THE NETWORK. YOU SUCK!

  2. I’m not too familiar at bash scripting, any suggestions on how to just tweak the script to run on OS x’s version of bash.. without calling it from cron please ? 🙂

  3. That is indeed very cool! However, we need to subscribe (it’s certainly cheap enough) so that the show can maintain the costs involved in having the music and key personnel needed to keep it healthy and free on the internet for the many. This in indeed a clever way to “get around” paying, but……..know what I mean?

  4. David, how am I a pirate? Haven’t you ever taped a show off the radio? this is the same thing! I am not redistributing the show or taking out commercials! I leave the commercials intact and the recorded files are not modified in any way! Have you ever used a DVR, VCR? if so, then by your definition, you too are a pirate!

  5. Hey Marc, I call the script from cron so that the computer automatically records the show for me at the scheduled time (so I don’t miss it). If you want to fire it off manually, just set the execute bit (chmod +x) and run as follows: ./record.sh (assuming you give it that name). Cheers!
