This is a quick line to stream in the latest offerings of your favorite netcasts/podcasts. You will need to have a file named netcast.txt in the directory you run this from. This file should have one and only one of your netcast's/podcst's url per line.
When run the line grabs the offering on the top of the netcast/podcast stack and end it over , quietly, to vlc.
Since I move around computers during the day I wanted an easy way to listen to my daily dose of news and such without having to worry about downloading to whatever machine I am on. This is just a quick grab and stream of whats current.
Future plans... have the list of netcasts be read from the web. possibly an rss or such. I use greader so there might be a way to use it as the source so as not to have to muck with multiple lists
This will play the audio goodness posted up on PlayTweets via twitter right form the ever loving cmdline. You do not even need a twitter account. I hashed this out in a bit of a hurray as the kids need to get to sleep....I will be adding a loop based feature that will play new items as they come in...after what your are listening to is over.

Pump up the chatter, run this script on a regular basis to listen to your twitter timeline.
This is a rough first cut using several cli clips I have spotted around. There is no facility to not read those things already read to you. This could also easily be put in a loop for timed onslaught from the chatterverse, though I think it might violate several pointsof the Geneva Convention
UPDATE - added a loop, only reads the first 6 twits, and does this every 5 mins.
