    What did you mean by “the WinAmp guys were right” Justin; what did I miss?

    hmm. I can’t find it now — but about 10 years ago, some members of the WinAmp team (possibly just the CEO) gave an interview where they said that the future for legal music listening was to offer a huge collection online, for free streaming playback — ie. Spotify. nobody listened, of course, because the music biz was more into the idea of suing Napster.

    Thanks Justin. Perhaps I’m old fashioned and/or greedy, but I still kinda like to have my music all neatly organised on a disk somewhere. My only problem now is getting it all from 320kpbs MP3 to FLAC. :)

    Join the club. Having said that I’ve been having a pain of a time trying to listen to it easily — you should see the crazy svn-over-ssh synchronization scripts I’ve written to sync my latest music around the place….

    Oh, I don’t actually listen to it Justin, except for rare occasions I actually remember I have a music collection. :)

    What makes me laugh is the young uns, who buy multi-giga music players for silly money because they want to carry every track they’ve ever downloaded around with them. I just don’t get it, but then I guess I am old…
