hah! What an idiot, I forgot the essential part of the post :P

After reading it, I came to the conclusion this guy is a genius like all the other Amiga creators. It was really a Dream Team!

I notice a parallel between hiss ideas for REBOL and the new AmigaOS. Coincidence? I think not . HE knows his shit very well!

WTF is a .RAM file? And the file doesn't exist anyway!

I get the impression it's some kind of bizarre Web-television streaming media kind of crap thingy is it?

Is it viewable with an Amiga browser through a dial-up connection?

Why do they persist in making things in these bizarre formats, what's wrong with ASCII, HTML, AmigaGuide, IFF WORD, IFF FTXT, etc. for an interview? Or if they really must have an animated interview (!) (what is the point?) why not IFF ANIM, or MPEG, etc.?

Sorry, better stop before I get carried away :-)

I believe this is a Real Audio Media file if I remember correctly. They also use .RM and some other file extensions as well

The file won't download, I've tried now at work and home. :-(

If you have a text version maybe you could post it in the Zone for everyone :-)

Just for the sake of clarity, a .RAM file is how Real Audio streams data. If you download it, you can open it with a text file and it contains the location of the actual file to be streamed, which Real Player uses. This format has been around since at least 1996. I thought the Amiga finally has Real Audio support (why it would want it is anybody's guess...)
