I Love Led Zeppelin, Will Wheaton Nailed it, I can embed posts inline!

So as this post title states, this post is really threefold: The first two points now, the last geek point at the end (scroll down). I have been a massive Led Zeppelin fan since I was weened off breast feeding.  I love to get the Led out, have all albums, collect rare vintage live recordings (FLAC or other lossless only please), run an oldschool Carracho server for said live recordings, and damn near cried when they had the reunion show in London and I didn’t have the money to make that epic journey that would, for me, have been akin to an Islamic person returning to Mecca.  In short: I’m a big Led Zeppelin fanatic.  In a recent tweet, Will Wheaton wrote: I’m currently up to Physical Graffiti, and have just discovered that I don’t have the sound system, ’69 Nova, or long hair needed to really do this album justice.

Including the title of quoted article gives more meaningful link text. Also, WCAG 1.0 guideline 10.5 offers a hint for improvement: “until user agents (including assistive technologies) render adjacent links distinctly, include non-link, printable characters (surrounded by spaces) between adjacent links”.
