"The song on the site is fine. There was a download problem (unknown why it was acting up) and a copy of the recording was provided directly. Harold - Site Admin"

"The song cuts off halfway through the first verse for me. :( "

"I really like this song's lyrics. A suggestion: "ready to install" might work even better if it was sung in a way that hinted of adventure."

Pegasus 2014 Nominations
Update by hms422014-08-13 05:39:21

Our annual article to pick up which of the Pegasus Awards songs can be heard on this site. Although of course clips for all songs and performers in the final ballot can be heard on the Pegasus site itself, some of the versions on here are either live recordings or covers by other performers, and can give another point of view before you vote (which of course, if you're a member of the filk community, you are going to...aren't you?)! I have listed all nominations this year, even those not on the site, just so that no-one thinks I'm trying to influence voting or anything stupid.

  • Rehosting domain
    Update by gk2012-11-22 17:11:46

    I'm in the process of rehosting the filkarchive.org.uk domain name. I don't believe this should interrupt access to the site at any point, since the actual server is not moving, but if there is any sort of outage I'll try and get it sorted as soon as possible.

    Thanks

    Some site fixes, at last...
    Update by gk2012-11-19 20:26:18

    Hi folks

    I'm aware that I've been neglecting this site over the last couple of years, for a number of reasons to do with work and other hobbies. I've just put some fixes in that user thnidu reported, and I'm going to try and put a couple of evenings in over the next few weeks to get the site a more current look and feel.

    The site is certainly being used - we now have 508 songs on the site, and a shade under 50000 downloads - which is also something I need to do something about, as the size of the database is now slowing down the first page considerably. When I started this, I wasn't expecting it to be quite this busy.

    I also want to float out some ideas, which I'll try and do on the usual filk forums, about some options to do with the site redesign - any feedback very welcome.

    Thanks again to all the users of the site!
