My new religion and favourite Wikepedia article

I have ceased being an atheist.  I have decided to worship P-Funk. Earlier in the week I took up a free trial of eMusic, having been directed there by Pitchforkmedia.com.  My first purchase was Funkadelic’s Maggot Brain.

Nullriver losing on Netshare, but winning on MediaLink

(Update 4th Oct ’08: I had some friends over again and finally paid Nullriver for the code.  Only thing: I couldn’t then get it to work.  Then, this morning, without me doing anything, it works (and works beautifully).  I’ll have to invite people over again.  In the meantime, I’m sitting in my living room writing […]
