I like to listen to music. Mostly MP3, CD, and my all-time favourite: records. Yeah, those big, black 12″ monsters from your youth. Or maybe you don’t even remember those…?
It also happens that I like to scrobble
my music. What’s scrobbling you ask? Easy: It means to track what you have been listening to, using the Audioscrobbling service of last.fm. This gives me the advantage of knowing what I listened to last week, getting recommendations on new music, and such stuff. This automatically happens when I listen using Amarok
or some iPod.
Requirements are: Firefox, Greasemonkey and the scrymble script. I usually use Konqueror or Safari, but it’s ok to have Firefox around for purposes like this. After the installation of Scrymble, you can go to RYM (http://rateyourmusic.com/
) to scrobble any album listed there, either in real time, or post auditem.
PS: I actually made up the auditem. Anybody here who knows the correct form? 🙂
Just added Google Analytics to my blog. Let’s see how that works out. In the past and on my other home, I had been using awstats, running on my own webserver.
Nice feature of VirtualBox:
VBoxHeadless -startvm “Your VM name”
Run that in screen(1) and be happy! The non-OSE version is supposed to support RDP as well, otherwise make sure SSH is running!
Today I learned that you can get a full screenshot by pressing cmd-shift-3, and a screenshot of a selected portion of the screen by cmd-shift-4. The files will be put on the desktop, and they will be in PNG format! Until now I’ve used the screenshot utility, which only produces TIFF files, and is more clunky to use. Hooray!
…yes, now also blogging. My reason: Collect all the information that I think is useful to others at one spot.
