Projects / Gronk


Gronk is a Web-based MP3 jukebox. It generates heavily-hyperlinked Web pages listing all of your ripped CDs, by extracting information from CDDB data. These Web pages allow easy selection of songs or albums to play, and when nothing has been explicitly selected, it selects songs randomly. Playback is done via either XMMS or mpg123.

            fm = losers
            I love how the Freshmeat chowderheads always rewrite my release announcements. Please note that where I said, "Workarounds for recent Perl Unicode braindamage", they changed the technical term braindamage to the weasel-word "issues". Screw you guys.
