Ah, cool, thanks much!

Hm, yup, OK.  Austin, any chance you can turn that off?  It's probably
better just to fail with a 404 rather than present a list of options in
this case... and it'll save CPU time on your end, too...

Right you are!  Hm.  OK, on my end, it's a Ruby cron job which finds new
items... how can I notify your machine of a new file?  I can hit a URL
if that would be helpful... or send an email... or something else, not
sure, whatever you think best.
