Alright. There is this site online known as
www.audioscrobbler.com . It is a very interesting site. You get a plugin for the application that you use to listen to music. And then it takes the information and makes stats for it. It compiles your favorite and most listened to songs and then it even gives you recommendations that are derived from people with similar interests as you.
FIRST group has been started. So once you make an AS account, feel free to join the group. [Oh how I love networking! =D]
Some other FIRSTers that already have this are:
Ashley [Feel free to add me to friends when you sign up! ]
So, check this out if you are bored and love music. I absolutely love this thing!
It also makes you part of this thing called
last.fm which is streaming radio from users that you choose.
I know there is a
thread about a group for this. But there wasnt a thread telling what it was. So I thought I would inform everyone.
I recently joined so here is my account:
ClarkG Now I need to install the plugin.

I have an account now, too – SunnySeattle – and it posts when I listen from work.
If you are at work and like to listen to the radio (like me). Listen to your Last.fm station. It is an almost identical site and it will submit the tracks you listen to.

Yeah audoscrobbler is cool, add me my acct is “wk1989”, I’m in the FIRST group lol.
I can’t say anything bad about audioscrobbler, its a great program.
Make sure you install the plugins after you join! That way we can see what your listening too!
Just joined up. Jay T is the name.
Just joined audioscrobbler tonight -

Is it just me, or is anyone else getting a blank page after clicking on the “FIRST group” link?

It is not my link, I checked. I think the site is having a few issues, I am sure it will be back to normal in a day or so!
I had the same thing happen to mine.
Looky looky, everyone’s favorite FIRST band has grown in popularity.
Since Thursday of last week, 4 more people have listened to them.
It was @ 6 listeners last Thursday.
IRI exposed the band more, and made more people listen… w00t.
I just joined as ejanowak, but I can’t get the FIRST group to work for the life of me, its just not there. I also can’t get iScrobbler to run, if anyone else on a Mac is having this problem or found a way to fix it, please PM me!

The FIRST group page appears to be down, i don’t know if its for maintenance or a error on their end. Hopefully it will be back soon enough…
A bit of a strange happening here this week… No, you haven’t all listened to your favourite tracks 2147483647 times… A small “hiccup” seems to have occurred in the generation of the charts, and so it’s all gone a bit Pete Tong.
Have no fear, your single plays of those tracks you wanted to keep a secret will soon disappear again as the problem is being fixed, and the charts will be regenerated.
Posting about this other than in this official thread will result in very unhappy moderators, and you will be frowned upon, you have been warned
In other news, I hear the new site is swimming along nicely, which is always good
Your ever loving moderator,
Taken from the Audioscrobbler homepage.
Well, after pondering joing for a few months, here is mine as of this morning: Raystlin. Hopefully the FIRST group will be up soon.
It looks like the FIRST group is back up!!!
So go ahead and join!
I’m in, but I can’t download the plugin for iTunes
Given that every year there are long threads as to what music should be played at regionals, perhaps this could help offer atleast a little insight as to what people are actually listening to. Hopefully when that time comes this season, one of us subscribed to the FIRST audioscrobbler will remember to recommend from the lists what we have already deemed our most popular/favorite music.
