Howdy, gang! I've just finished fixing a bunch of database irregularities on the Grotbox. The master record of what has been played, how many times a song has been played, and whether or not I liked it suffered a blowout. To our two regular listeners, I apologize for the hardcore metal/MF Doom/Free Jazz blowout of the last 2 days that resulted.
To this end, I just spent the last 4 hours hand weighting everything in the new database. Expressing an opinion on a song on a 1-100 scale, at a rate of 2000 songs an hour, is not an experience I'd like to repeat again any time soon. I do it out of love, and for our 2 brave listeners. (Hi, guys!) Anyhow, somewhat normal service has been restored, though some fine-tuning will occur over the next month.
I'd write a few more paragraphs, but my eyes hurt, and my printer just printed... something.
