A bit more on Firestorm

Speaking of exercising in Crete, I had a strange experience that I hope will cease being strange. I heard the music! We decided that the gods had smiled on us, but later on... Hmmm...

$ file bin/do-not-directly-run-firestorm-bin
bin/do-not-directly-run-firestorm-bin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15, not stripped

Gee, so it is possible to hear streaming music on a 64-bit Linux system with a 32-bit SL client! I hope other SL client makers will pay attention. For now, it's all the more reason to switch to Firestorm.
