It changes from the very first access request. Go to
http://www.equaleyesradio.com and see what I am talking about. None of
the links work because the person who provided the HTML didn't, but
that's another unrelated problem.

although I do use it to capture audio streams sometimes. Is that done
on the server side or the browser side?
