13 apr 2008, 05:14As of right now scrobbling of tracks from my iPod is back. I gave in and decided to give the last.fm client a try for the first time. So far I hate how it behaves when I sync my iPod. For one, it slows down my computer while it's getting the tracks and opening the screen to ask which I would like to scrobble. Second, it should have an option to choose scrobbling preferences for iPod tracks, as in "always scrobble ALL tracks from my iPod, do not ask me again."

2 feb 2008, 22:09Just want to make a note to myself that I quit scrobbling songs from my iPod when I got a new one. Now last.fm will only be keeping track of songs actually played on my computer through iTunes.
I really wish that the iTunes plugin submitted played tracks from my iPod when it synced.
21 jun 2007, 21:34It appears iScrobbler for Windows is not compatible with iTunes 7.2. My VIRB°tunes plugin still works, which basically does the same thing, but for virb.com instead of last.fm, so the problem much be only the iScrobbler plugin. So I reverted to iTunes 7.02 with no problems.
30 dec 2006, 17:09My desktop died the other day, I had to order a new power supply. And that is why I have no recently played tracks, and I probably won't have charts this week.

One band whose music would be the soundtrack of your life:
Tears for Fears, it's a Mad World but I Believe there's hope the pain could end and we'll all be strong. Though sometimes I just want to Shout it all away.
18 okt 2006, 21:11They has been recent talk and popularity of the song "Cassie" by Flyleaf. This is the song about the girl who was killed at Columbine after standing up for her faith in God. I just want to mention that the band Eustace also released a song about her a few years prior to Flyleaf called "Cassie Said". It's beautiful and touching and you should all listen to it.
10 okt 2006, 03:44Going backwards from how high they rank on my overall list:
The just plain sad section:
191. I'm the #31 fan of Ev Angel with only 6 listens. Being that this is the band that Copeland spawned from, I'm quite surprised.
180. #27 for Like David, 7 listens.
180. #15 for The Hot Stewards, guess they really do suck and I fell for it.
180. #10 for Cape Renewal, not that big of a deal, but I thought they had some groupies at least.
173. #9 for Dreaming of the Fifth, 8 listens, we live in a sad sad world.
164. #44 for Still Breathing, 9 listens, sad sad world.
148. #44 for The River Bends, probably just because I use the actual band name instead of saying it's Denison Witmer.
I skip a lot here, just to keep from crying over the utter sadness of it.
107. #10 fan for Blake Hazard, I used to listen to her a lot, but only 20 listens since being on this site, where's all the Bostonites?
104. #18 fan for Undertow Orchestra, I'll attribute this to all of their songs being live.
86. #3 fan for Questions in Dialect, do people really not like this band?
66. #18 fan for M.Craft, I just started listening to this guy seriously.
60. #44 fan for This Beautiful Mess, they deserve more.
54. #2 for Alathea
52. #21 for Dear Ephesus
52. #6 for TW Walsh, seriously?
49. #45 for Rosemary Clooney
46. #1 for Apt°Core, wierd
37. #26 for Campsite
It's begun to make sense section:
36. #30 for At The Close Of Everyday.
33. #12 for Chris Staples
27. #36 for Namelessnumberheadman
27. #50 for Discover America
18. #25 for Waterdeep, even though I haven't really listened in forever.
16. #3 for All Things Bright and Beautiful
4. #21 for Viva Voce, I just moved up from #35 as deserved.
