So I’ve gotten myself an Audioscrobbler profile, on grounds that all the cool kids seem to be doing so. Within about 5 minutes of noodling around I found Reelroad, a nice Russian-Irish folk band whose first album is up for downloading in its entirety.

That’s worth at least one of my precious personal data, I think.

    Hmm, guess I should try this. Too bad it can’t poll your iPod.

    I just realized that you can listen to your iPod while connected, via iTunes, so I’m sure it would at least track that…

    Hmmm, just looked at the display of the iPod’s contents in iTunes.
    It maintains a playcout for each track as well as the last time it was played.
    So I suppose all you need to do is have the plugin working, and, voila, data from your iPod.
    Ok, I think I’ve said and written the work iPod too many times today.

    That’s probably wise of them to temporarily disable signups, I’ve been getting server timeouts up the wazoo.
