I just get a blank page?

It worked great for me.

|PLEASE NOTE: |
The FeedRoom does not fully support the
Macintosh, Unix or Linux operating systems,
nor the AOL 4 and 5 browsers, or Netscape 6.
::snort:: I didn't bother to look beyond that bit of narrowmindedness.
Hehe... I'll take broadminded narrowband over narrowminded broadband any day.

Need to add opera 5.12 to that list. On my computer, it just keeps going back to the same page: 'The FeedRoom is not optimized for your
machine's operating system.'
However, I was able to listen (although it came in choppy) in on IE6 on narrowband and could hear some of the feed here and there. If I were on broadband, I think it would be a really cool site.
But the site is up-front, letting you know you're not gonna make it unless you have MSIE and broadband.

mivox says: "::snort:: I didn't bother to look beyond that bit of narrowmindedness. "
How does a experimental site that is trying to pioneer a new technoloogy get called narrow-minded for not supporting obsolete browsers and browsers with almost no market share which can't display the new technology.
Narrow-mindedness is marked by or reflective of narrow interests and sympathies. When a company plays to the browers that the overwhelming majority of web users are using they can hardly be cast as being narrow-minded.
You got to the door but wouldn't look in, so we'll never know whether you thought it good or not.

There is an other site www.now.com that does similar real-time news but more sports/X-Gen oriented style. NOW broadcasts every 6 hour their news on the web site, simultaniously as they broadcast it on a Hong Kong satellite channel. It is a bandwidth hog, to say the least.
