And I was just about to download SOS November 12, 2009 11:13 AM   Subscribe

Maybe there's a memo I missed, but what happened to the mefi music download links? I just get the flash player now.

I still see it underneath the little disk icon. Maybe you have some ad/image blocker settings turned up a little too high?

Note that the link only appears on individual track pages, not on the front page of Music.

You should see the download link to the right of the Flash player.

So this is where we talk about waffles, right? Allons, les gauffres!

They also don't show up if you're not logged in. Or at least they didn't the last time I checked.

Ah yes, I was thrown by the lack of them on the main page. Is that to encourage clickthroughs?
posted by jaduncan at 11:35 AM on November 12, 2009


Oh, and thanks for the quick response jessamyn and cortex. You are both superheroes/heroines, obviously.
posted by jaduncan at 11:37 AM on November 12, 2009


Nah, it's not about clickthroughs. It's the same reason we don't have "more inside" text on the front page. We want the front pages fairly clean.

No love for pb? He's the superheroiest one of all, in my opinion.

pb is such a great guy! Such charm, such grace. Truly the greatest MeFite who ever - wait... pb is dortmunder?

pb is pretty badass.

pb is no dortmunder...

and maybe that's a good thing

pb has a brother named j. Together they are called...

pb once used his cop powers to check me out of prison for two days so that we could solve a crime together.

He drives a bad ass car.

pb the Destroyer of Polychromatic Perception? pb the Fave-Bringer?

Yeah, he's alright.

goddammit that was in response to gnfti

Is it wrong that I pronounce gnfti "nifty"?

pb certainly wins on the bilabial plosive front.

Which sounds like a meteorological phenomenon I can't even begin to imagine.

Has anyone written some greasemonkey that embeds the actual MP3 right on that front page? It's 2009 now and my computer's native widget is nicer than the flash.

Hey pb, can we get a feature where we get all MeFi related memos via memail? Aside from memomemail sounding great, it seems a lot of people keep missing memos, maybe this would help.

pb once had a thought that was unperfect, but he reversed the wave-collapse event and made it unthought.

I heard that pb programs the entire site in ternary coded instructions, which he then runs through a ternary-instruction-to-Brainfuck converter. He takes the output and manually interprets to to manipulate a pointer, treating the pagefiles on the server as an infinite tape. All while continuing his ongoing proof that P=NP.

After seeing immediate comments from jessamyn, cortex, and pb, I was kind of hoping mathowie would weigh in.
posted by agropyron at 2:48 PM on November 12, 2009


pb no longer sees the code. He just sees self-linker, Pepsi Blue, quonsar...

I'm all in favor of pb, but he lost a couple of points when he removed the color-change button. *sigh*

Choose Mefi. Choose the blue. Choose the green. Choose meetups. Choose a fucking big thread, choose SLYTs, lolcats, Wikipedia gossip and newsfilter. Choose mathowie, cortex, and jessamyn. Choose vacapinta. Choose pb. Choose your contacts. Choose favourites and flagging. Choose a spectacular post by Kattullus with a range of fucking links. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing YouTube videos, stuffing fucking bacon into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, posting your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up members you spawned to replace yourself.

Choose your future.

Choose Mefi.
