  1. Not sure if this is just my computer, but the link to the draft takes me to a “Congratulations, you are a winner!” website that doesn’t look anything like what the LOD-LAM site should look like.

  2. Weird. http://www.tinyurl.com/4starlicense2 works for me.

    Just in case, here’s what it resolves to:

  3. I see the problem now – the link in the post is lacking the “y” in tinyurl

  4. Aha! Thanks, John! I thought I’d gotten url in the video wrong, which would have been much harder to fix. I’ve fixed it in the body of the post.

    Thanks for your persistence.
