Is anyone having problems downloading the songs that I posted on Sunday? I've had a few reports that the files aren't saving as mp3 or aren't playing properly.

UPDATE: If the files are saving as binary files or something else weird, try renaming them with the .mp3 extension. This is what I did when I tested out the downloads on my work computer and the songs played after I renamed them with the proper extensions.

I can't figure out why some people can download them just fine and others can't. I submitted a question to the File Nanny forum, so hopefully someone can help me figure this out.

One that may not work for anyone is the Paul Young tune. I think I bought that from iTunes a while back and it's still got the DRM childproof cap on it. It's a shame because it's such a great tune to get in the holiday mood. Someone made an e-card of it for YouTube, so click here if you want to be-bop around while ignoring the dull picture of a stream with a bunch of snowy trees around it.

It's weird - on my work computer they saved just fine as mp3s, but on my home computer the same songs showed as something else and wouldn't open. Course now I am at work again so can't recheck.

got em nice and smooth here

but ya gotta do the lifelogger thing...upload the songs to there and then it generates a code you embed and gives you the players you see on The Couch... so much easier for your readers to just click and play

Yes they saved as something else on my computer too. Haven't had time to sort it out - but the songs look fabby


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
