UPSU is not MySpace - no autoplaying music here. Bugger.

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

A couple of the acts playing at the Grad Ball have MySpace pages with players which play their music. I've found out we can insert those players on our Grad Ball minisite pages, but I can't find any way of preventing them from automatically playing tunes when the page loads.

Unfortunately, this means I can't (read "won't") put them onto our pages, because I absolutely hate - with a passion - going to a web page a having it decide to play me a song without asking. It's almost the modern equivalent busking (and not the good ones you get on the tube - I'm not a "buskist" - just to clarify...).

I'm running out of time - and patience - with the Grad Ball site now, so this will unfortunately have to remain a feature request for another day. It's a shame, really - I want us to have more multimedia on UPSU.net. I'm just not so keen on forcing it down peoples' throats.
