Conversion fans--
     Hmm, well, in my experience, .ram-files via Real Audio are simply 
placeholders for streaming audio of around 4K and don't actually 
store any sound on your hard-drive. So what you may want is a way to 
save any streaming-audio from any source to your hard-drive.
     On my Mac, i use an application called WireTap Pro, which is $19, 
and apparently made only for Mac OSX 10.2 or later.  See 
http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/wiretap/ for details.  It's 
extremely easy to use and can save files as .mp3, .aif, and others.
     On my PC, i have Total Recorder ($11.95; see 
http://www.highcriteria.com/), but haven't used it, since i'm on my 
Mac 99% of the time.  However, it comes highly recommended by Rebecca
