8-track recorder ... records up to 8 webcast streams from the feds, transcodes into better format, spools to disk.

there is *no* permanent record for house appropriations, house financial services, and several others as a matter of policy ...

the hard part is the transcoding into a better format ... realaudio/ video is really tough.

getting ready for the next big project ... cfr is a total mess, tired of waiting on the gpo. almost ready to dive in.

also considering ripping congressional webcasts ... they send a few committees out live and then as a matter of policy don't create an archive.
