    Will playlist, ptag or loved be supported after the announced changes?

    Will combined Last.fm radio stations be published some day, or will Last.fm discontinue the development of this feature too? What's the road map here?

    I've been wondering about this too. Anyone have any idea how the upcoming changes will impact the combined stations? I could probably handle the loss of some of the personal stations if I could fine tune stations like I can with this tool (thanks again tburny!)

    Maybe should team up with s.o. and improve the ui a bit ;)

    You write on your blog that you hate slow loading websites.. yet you host comfo.fm on rapidshare? :P
    fix!

    tburny, if you want i could host it on my webspace for you, but i dont think i can track number of downloads. also, i could help you make an "easier" distribution of this app (packaged with exe for win use, scripts for linux/mac, etc) rather than having the users dig into the /.../dist folder to find the necessary elements to fire up this app. i think it would boost the amount of users of this app immensely if it were "easier to use" :D

    combo.fm looks interesting, but I found the info or how to use a bit confusing.
    I downloaded the plugin and proceeded to create the cmd file using notepad
    pasted in
    @echo off
    java -jar ComboFm/dist/ComboFm.jar
    I then renamed it to a cmd suffix and placed this in the dist folder
    as it said on your blog I double clicked the file and a small black
    box appeared but then just disappeared.. I then thought OK I will
    see what happens if I open up Combofm.jar ... ah now let's see
    place the usernames of friends I wished to listen to libraries from

    I used the "and" for two... however I am not sure if the url's are automatically
    found and placed in the url boxes below or I have to put these in manually
    and do I need to place the entire folder of combo.fm into a specific directory
    e.g. C:\, or will it run from my downloads folder which is in My Documents.

    In a nutshell, I have no idea what I have been trying to do and how to use
    this application or plugin.

    On Windows you should be able to run it by double-clicking the ComboFm.jar :)

    I'm having the same problem as mugshot.

    You suggest to simply double-click the ComboFm.jar file but do you want us to extract the files as well?

    EDIT: I'm asking this because double-clicking the file brings up my IZArc extracter.

    that is exactly what I did.. but I am not sure what I am supposed to next. And how does
    combo.fm work once I have chosen the friends I wish to hear libraries from. there is
    no go or OK button on ComobFM.jar only the opportunity to close it.

    Select the queries that you want using the lists and sliders. They should appear in the "Generated query" box (and URLs will appear for browser and client).

    Select the URL text and press control-c to copy. Go to a web browser, select the address box, and paste the URL (control-v). If you want to listen in the web browser, pick the one that starts "http:", if you want to listen in the client, pick the one that starts "lastfm:".

    I've extracted the files in ComboFm.jar to the /dist folder, but what do I do after that? Was I supposed to extract the .jar file in the first place?

    No. When you double click the .jar file, Java should run it. IZArc is trying to do too much.

    Right click the .jar file and select "open with ..." and pick Java. You should probably click "Always use ..." for this.

    It will get even nicer :) I am currently writing some nice webpage with HTML5, Javascript and JQuery, so you can create combo stations straight from your (modern!) browser :)

    You can now create Combo stations straigt from your browser using http://burnynet.de/combofm :)
    It is still in testing phase, but should be nearly stable.

    Enyjoy :)

    Thank you :)

    I just fixed the following bugs:
    - The friends radio search box did not add a station if hitting return
    - Switching discovery mode on/off was broken
    - Removing the first query item breaks the removal function
