I was able to make the decision to swap out my ageing Mac for MinorOaks backup for loan Chromebook. All went well. You aren't going to get studio quality from the Lunchtime Livestreams... why? All guests are invited for their relevance and not their tech provision! I have lined Casee's album below if you want to hear the studio mastered version of the playout song, Super and the Hummingbird Album embedded from Bandcamp.

How will you use your customised link?

Here are a few of PCM's uses

  1. included in a PDF or printed article to observe activity triggered by finding it in that one location.
  2. used to generate a QR code to monitor through Bit.ly stats engagement.
  3. created to provide an easy word of mouth link to verbally relayed when asked for a link that would otherwise be very long hard to recall, remembers and relay.
  4. provided an easy-share link for emailing and texting to PCM's Terms and Conditions https://bit.ly/pcm_TandCs
  5. in reports in combination with inserted hyperlinks when printing and photocopying are likely
  6. in graphics when a jpg image may become disassociated from its source text link, shared independently on social media or isolated in screen grabs.
  7. for a web asset such as a press release or event page where I want to measure the traffic from my activity promoting the linked material that I wouldn't have analytics. 

Bit.ly is one of the many URL shortening link services available.
