Musicmobs is moving

December 29, 2003

It’s almost time for the move. Expect the site to be down for a few hours tomorrow night while I switch everything over.

New site revison coming soon

December 15, 2003

I’m getting a TON of requests for better artist matching (case independent, ampersand/and agnostic, space trimmed…). All I can say is that I’m working on a big rev, and I plan on including an initial rollout for what should be a much better system of doing artist lookups.

I plan on having it up in a few weeks. In the meantime, I’m moving to a new apartment (so is the site), so expect musicmobs to be down for a couple days in about 2 weeks. After I get settled in the new place, I’ll start cranking on the development again, and you should see some progress shortly.

New fix for uploading

December 10, 2003

Ok, uploading was broken again today for a bit. Turns out when I fixed it last night, that I overwrote a previous fix I had done.

Hopefully it should be working now. Again, let me know if it breaks. Isn’t beta great?

Uploading is back up

December 9, 2003

I’ve fine tuned my parsing scripts and hopefully fixed the memory problem. I’ve only tested it with my xml so let me know if anything breaks. Thanks for hanging on.

iTunes Catalog and Musicmobs

December 8, 2003

First of all I’d like to welcome all of the new iTunes Catalog users. KavaSoft was nice enough to include links to Musicmobs in their new 1.5 version. Be sure to check it out here.

As for the uploading, I’m working on a couple of new solutions. I think the next step will be to have client software the does the parsing on the client end and uploads the results to my site. I should be able to support a lot more users with my existing hardware if I do i that way. My estimate is that there will be some form of uploading solution in place by the end of the week. I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Most active user stats

December 3, 2003

Thanks to best iPod out there, the most active users stats are now correct. Good eye!

“Users who like” on artist page

December 3, 2003

If you are logged in, you will now be highlighted in the “users who like” section on the artist page.

Spaces in iTunes url

December 2, 2003

I fixed the problem with spaces in the itunes url, so it should actually work now if they are in the query string.

New look

December 2, 2003

I’m trying to get the new look up, so the site may be doing some funny stuff. Just wait it out, it will totally be worth it.
