#1 daughter is in her first year at ANU this year. She missed lectures
yesterday and tried to download them from the ANU's site, without
success, so called to Dad for help. The system is an abomination. The
recordings are only available as streaming Real Audio - they can't be
downloaded, the system doesn't recognose Firefox as a browser, and what
should be a simple HTML page is so thoroughly java-infested that I
couldn't but shake my head in bewilderment.

I installed the Real Audio player but still had no luck at all. I even
resorted to Windows, which didn't work either.

If anyone has any clues about what I can do to make these lectures
available I'd be most grateful. For my own curiosity, I'd be interested
to know what was in the minds of the people who created this

In anger and frustration,
