I’ve revived an old sidebox with new functionality. The Current Music box is back, but whereas it used to simply show the 1 most recent song, now you can click and see the last 100. The actual log keeps all of them, so in the future I can do my own stats if I want.
I tried several different services to do this, and wasn’t very happy with any of them. The process I use to get the data there is pretty convoluted, but very much in the classic Unix pipe vein. I’m very pleased with it.

Do you upload your music listening to last.fm? I’m flickerfly over there if you do. 🙂
I’ve played with it, but I can’t get an RSS feed of stuff I’ve played in the past. There’s a “Recently Played”, but it only has content for about an hour after you’ve played it.
It seems like the only purpose is to help people find new music, which is a fine thing, but not what I’m looking for here.
🙂 Can’t use a hammer on a screw.
