I need to make time for my 'media server' conversion of my old desktop box ASAP - my laptop drive is now almost completely full, I had to uninstall software I don't use (like MS Office) to make room to finish ripping. I need a bigger server, and I'll feel better with RAID - everything is just on this one drive now.
I'm debating weeding out duplicates from the list. I have a number of singles, collections, etc, which have tracks that I also have from albums. But I don't know if it is really worth the work, there aren't *that* many.
Also, as you can see from the link, the text version of the iTunes Library isn't very readable. Before I reinvent the wheel, does anyone know of a decent PHP or Perl script that can turn the iTunes XML library file into HTML, or, better, do it dynamically for sorting, etc? I can write one, but if there is a good one I'd rather not waste the time.
Now I need to make some food. I emailed in sick this morning and spent most of the day in bed. I feel OK now, but I was completely non-functional this morning. Now I'm getting hungry...
