Problems downloading MP3 version of episode 173

Couldn't download it. Got an error message "The requested URL /drabblecastarchive/MP3Warehouse%2520 was not found on this server."

Figured out how to download it differently. For me, the link on the MP3 page give an error msg. But if I click the "regular" link to the story, then click the MP3 version of that link, it downloads OK. Whatever. As long as I get my drabbles, I don't care.

Yeah, there's something hokey with the mp3 thing. We've poked at it before, but it looks like the fix is kind of esoteric.

What I do on the very rare occasion that the RSS version doesn't work properly is download the M4A and use BonkEnc to convert it to mp3. Not especially convenient, but it gets the job done.

If you have QuickTime installed on your computer and you can sit at the computer to listen to the episode, you can also open up the mp3 link thing on the site and it will play in-browser. I'm not describing it very well, alas.

Yah, for some reason every now and then iweb chucks up a weird file instead on an mp3 for that feed. I always change it as soon as I realize but by that time some people's feedgrabbers may have grabbed it. Individual MP3 files are now on the front page to download though as well!

Thanks, Norm! Gonna take more than a quirky RSS to keep me from my Drabblecast.

Now if you guys will just tell me where the music for Tim Pratt's "Jubilee" (Episode 166) came from, I can die happy.

Ya, but definitely want to get around any and all audience-access problems that come up, so thanks for bringing it up double.
Oh and about the music, I use a crudload of hodgepodge in that one, some mine, some stock some dunno will look it up for ya. Post or PM minutes of music you like and I'll dig it out.
