If you're like me, your bosses actually expect you to work while on the job, and not sit listening to your favorite radio show like you might want to. In this instructable, I'll show how to record any audio stream automatically using mplayer, lame and cron to schedule the job.
Step 1: Get Ubuntu, create directories
For this instructable, you'll need to have Ubuntu Linux. I run 7.04, but this may work for other versions as well. If people seem interested, I'll write a seperate instructable up showing how to do this with Windows.
If you already run Ubuntu, the only things you need are freely available through apt. Use the following commands at a terminal to install Lame, Mplayer and KCron.
sudo apt-get install lame mplayer kcron
Type in your password and confirm the installs.
Use the following commands to create the folders you'll need.
sudo mkdir /scripts
And this command to take ownership of the directory you just created:
sudo chown YourUserName /scripts
