Linux munchkins that want [1] to pull down the 18MB .wmv should do something like this:

mimms "mms://media3.abc.net.au/winlibrary/730report/200609/20060927-730-tao_16_9_bband.wmv"

[1] Why would they want to do that? I dunno. But then again, I don’t know the 12 year old nameless fangirl gushing over “meeting the smartest guy, practically, in the world… wow!”

P.S. I love Nautilus’ cute thumbnail, complete with sprocket holes. Yeah, every decent OS does it, but it’s still pretty sweet.
