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.

And this editor sucks, Xerexes

This thing loses the paragraph marks and ignores any br tags or straight a tag links written in HTML. There is no way to put in a hard return in the RTF editor, that I can see. Hence, a messy and smooshed post. :(

I gotta write a better FAQ!

Rob,

If you're using the WYSIWYG editor then you need to use only the buttons on it - you can't enter html straight into it. Â

If you click the "disable rich-text" link to turn the WYSIWYG editor off you also need to click on the "input format" link and select "filtered html" which will allow you to write in the input window the allowed html tags plus it will recognize line and para. breaks automatically.

I think that might address your comment?Â

You had the WYSIWYG editor on and the input format switched to filtered Html. I'll try to rewrite the help text to make all of this clearer - I don't think I explained that well.Â

I think I fixed the line and para. breaks on your post though..Â

Ahhhhhhh, okay cool. I will read the new help because I thought I tried everything.

 Thanks for the edits (and the main page-ness). :D
