Pandora via Linux command line with Pianobar

So, I really like this...I noticed, since I had to recently rebuild my Linux desktop (failed HDD) that the 'new' Adobe Air release doesn't work with Pandora One desktop client any more.  I saw a reference that said you might be able to get an old version and make it work, but after a minimal attempt, I couldn't get it working.  However, today I found Pianobar, which connects to and plays Pandora radio via the Linux command line.  I struggled to get it working properly (the package in the Ubuntu repository didn't work for me - kept getting TLS handshake errors), but downloading the source and building it that way works perfectly.  Link: http://www.foscode.com/install-pianobar-ubuntu/Lightweight, and nerdy!
