About.com has posted a list of sites with free Halloween sound fx and music: http://mp3.about.com/od/freemusicdownloads/a/halloween_music.htm 

Which made me think that we should post a track on our web sites.  To do that you need to use the embed tag.  My embed tag tutorial is here: http://rodmilstead.com/webdesign/addvideo.htm but it relates more to video. 

This one relates more to audio: http://www.webreference.com/js/column20/embed.html

Websnapr is a handy online tool that creates (not quite instant) thumbnails of any website.  Why?  To create a visual list of links on your page.  See it in action: http://www.websnapr.com/previewbubble/

Or you could make postage stamps.

How does it work?  Go to http://www.websnapr.com/ and try it out.  It took about three minutes for the thumbnail to generate.
