Song from my new comedy CD is LotD on User Friendly

First, my new comedy music CD, "For Amusement Only" is now complete and available for sale! I am hoping it will get some airplay on the Doctor Demento Show and other radio soon.
Second, in addition to the sound samples available in the PartiallyClips store, I have made one complete song available for download on its own page, under the Creative Commons attribution license. This is "NetHack," a parody of "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers, about the ASCII-graphics game of that name.
The song's release was (accidentally) timed perfectly with Illiad's new storyline at User Friendly, in which AJ is delusionally sucked into a game of NetHack, a la Tron. User Friendly made the song's page its Link of the Day yesterday, May 22.
If anyone's curious about what kind of clickthrough/bandwidth such a link is worth, my stats show about 1200 new clickthroughs from the primary site in the first day, plus about 500 from sites which echo or otherwise pick up on the UF LotD. It meant about 5.5 GB of transfer above what would be normal on my site on a Monday.
Big thanks for all those eyeballs to Illiad, and props for keeping the NetHack flame alight! I hope I get to be on a panel with you again sometime soon.
