thanks for the tips guys.

i went with creating an m3u file because, honestly, i am never going to 
remember the giant url in #1.  and every time i send people the #2 link 
(in, say, instant messenger) they click it and get a download window 
instead of hearing the stream.


that's short enough for me to remember.
