Let me get this out of the way. The Third Globe

Forgive my snippy captions, My heart just isn’t in it today. Also if you look at the England gallery you might notice this comes before Westminster and Trafalgar Square, I missed this one, and the next one too. I’m trying to keep some semblance of chronological order.

So I found this site called digg. It’s neat, the community submits links and rates them, not a bunch of editors. So the crap you find there is picked by your peers, switches the blame to everybody instead of specific people.

Anyway, I found a neat setup for iTunes playlists. It produces a nice mix of music you haven’t heard with music you like. I have three different playlists total and varied a little from the suggested ones.

The first one has music that I haven’t played more then 5 times and haven’t rated 1 or 2 stars (which mean I think they suck). It’s limited to 300 songs chosen randomly. The second has stuff I’ve played more then 3 times, has more then 2 stars (3 and above), and I haven’t played in the last week. It’s limited to 200 songs chosen by least recently played.

The 3rd playlist is just a combination of both. This playlist will play every song (unless I’ve already rated it a 1 or 2). Songs will randomly show up 5 times and if I haven’t rated it at least 3 stars I won’t see them again. If I have rated them at least 3 stars they’ll be thrown into a nice rotating list of songs I like. The mix is 3 parts list one (or Infuser) and 2 parts list two (or Sprinkler).

It works well.

Ohh and until I fix it the random image is broken. I’ll figure it out later I don’t feel like it now. I’m in the middle of moving everything, so stuff might break in the process. *shrug* What ever.
