OT: tip for listening to running recording over nfs

I just figured this one out. I have a slow computer that performs better
at recording than this one does. I want to hear what it's recording
without switching speakers etc.
I nfs-mounted the recording directory, and ran:
tail -f file.wav | sox -t raw -w -s -r22050 -c2 - -t ossdsp /dev/dsp

This works, but only if your lucky enough to have the block that tail -f
reads next be on the right bite boundary. Otherwise, control-c it and
try again.
