Was there a file-attachment issue earlier today? My phone couldn't grab the file to listen to during my morning commute (it didn't specifically say "404" but presented an error message that implied it was not found).

No, that was just me, forgetting to upload the actual mp3 file last night. D'oh! It's fixed now.

I should really make a checklist or something.
