I'm playing with last.fm#

I'm playing with last.fm. A few months ago I got annoyed at some of the wailing and teeth-gnashing that was happening on uk.music.guitar and posted an article saying approximately "if the `channel' sucks so much anyway, stop complaining that you can't break into it and start routing around it". Then I completely omitted to do any of the things I'd suggested that people start doing. But it seems like last.fm is doing at least some of them - at least the technical bits - even if so far it's mostly just playing stuff at me that I've already heard of. First impressions: really rather cool, but minor downsides: does come unsynced every so often (the stream is not playing what the popup window says it's playing) and involves way more screen space than I think it needs to use.

I registered as 'telent', but I don't think it knows enough about me yet for it to be worth anyone's time going to find me there right now.
