Doesn’t it suck when …

… software you’ve been using happily for eons goes out of date? I’d been using a little program called Recent Tunes to update my blog with the song that was playing in iTunes, and using the WP iTunes plugin to update the little Tunes section on the sidebar. It seems that something in Tiger has trashed Recent Tunes ; it only works for the run in which the preferences are created ; on subsequent runs it acts as if iTunes isn’t running at all. Worse yet, it appears to be abandoned. So I’ve switched over to AudioScrobbler, which has the mixed benefit of hooking me up with music that’s similar to stuff I like. I say it’s a mixed benefit because, as I’ve documented here in the past, I’m a music junkie. Knowing about more music that suits my tastes will only inspire me to buy more music. My shelves and my drive space are collapsing under the weight of my music collection, yet I can’t stop buying more. Not that I regret it at all. I can’t imagine my life without my tunes.
