live streaming audio in html5

html5test.gif
You can try html 5 live streaming sans flash here.the predictions of Flash’s demise are probably a bit premature,this html5 player appears to work well on Chrome and Safari (on Mac). Mozilla, which doesn’t want to pay the Fr Fraunhoffer – or anyone else – to license proprietary media formats has left Firefox with no native mp3 support so Firefox users will instead get the OGG stream. IE, it will come as no surprise, seems to be a lost cause.
While it might take awhile for standards to evolve and work well across all browsers and platforms. Let’s see if Steve jobs will bend the whole industry to his will to impose Apple’s strategy on rich media delivery, and therefore controlling content and interactive ad delivery.

floating oil thingy to stop floating oil

Simplex-oil-booms.jpg Simplex has cylindrical foam flotation for use in protected waters such as harbors, marinas and lakes. They are light weight and easy to move for boat traffic.

Top quality closed-cell polyethylene foam flotation blocks and vinyl-coated skirting, which are both non-absorbent barriers, will effectively block oil, trash and debris. If properly maintained our durable oil booms will give you many years of service. The skirting barrier hangs below the water line 12 inches to keep pollutants from creeping under the spill containment boom.
For those who like floating oil and want floating thing to contain them, here are PVC (made out of oil) utensils to contain your floating oil.
