    Oh my god… this file has gone down… how am I going to block out noise to work on my dissertation?! Sorry if you took it down because you were like WHO IS CONSTANTLY ACCESSING THIS FILE — I found it through a link from Jessamyn West last year and it’s proved to be an absolute lifesaver for me. I really should have downloaded it, but until today I hadn’t figured out how. Any way it can come back? Pretty please?

    You’re not the only one who likes this; this is my most popular recording.

    The file moved when I started using Amazon S3 in May (for the new link, look above), but loading the old link should automatically go to the new place, & this checks out for me. (Which player ignored the redirect to the new link, I wonder?)

    Anyway, try the new link. And “Right-click, save” is good for saving a local copy in case there’s more internet flakiness.

    And, yeah, I know Jessamyn – she’s awesome. Good luck with your dissertation!

    Hey, just came back to download this again on a new machine, and thought I’d note I just published a sort of synopsis of my dissertation, which is about Internet illiteracy, at ReadWriteWeb: http://icanhaz.com/literaceez Now you can find out what you’ve been providing a soundtrack to! 😀
