+
+Tonight I will be watching the presidential debates. Since I can't
+stand the commentators on any of the major news networks, I will once
+again be watching the debates on cspan. If you don't have cable (or
+your cable plan doesn't include CSPAN), you can watch the video feed
+online. If you're running Debian, you can also use rtmpdump and
+mplayer to play the stream on your computer fairly easily:
+
+      rtmpdump -v -r rtmpt://cp82346.live.edgefcs.net:1935/live?ovpfv=2.1.4 \
+            --tcUrl rtmp://cp82346.live.edgefcs.net:1935/live?ovpfv=2.1.4 \
+                --app live?ovpfv=2.1.4 --flashVer LNX.11,2,202,238 \
+                --playpath CSPAN1@14845 \
