I knew this day would come

Well, I'm sorry to see that the spammers finally found my blog. I'm going to have to figure out how to block them / delete their comments / send them to a tar pit. Curse you, spammers!

Meanwhile, I'm probably someone's bane as well. I was checking out Kevin Max's site, and the guy has this delightful flash-based audio player. However, while listening to one of the songs, I discovered that my regular music player had incorporated a song I was listening to into my regular collection. Well the only way it would do that is if the file was located somewhere in my home directory...

I checked my Firefox cache directory, and lo-and-behold I found all of the songs I had been listening to. So I copied them out of the temporary directory and into my regular music folder. Best of all, they're fairly high-quality!

Although KMAX's music and lyrics are very stylistic, moody, and odd.
