cd scrobbling

just started riffing through my old cd collection yesterday, looking for something new to scrobble..and i'm really amazed at today's technology, i must be really backdated.
not so long ago i was already amazed when you play any properly-labelled mp3 on the Media Player the album cover appears, with options on the artist too. now i'm really stupefied as to how they can recognize old cds, with no conspicuous labelling whatsoever(as far as i can see), and bring out not only the cover but the track names as well! doesn't work with homemade compilation cds though, maybe that's slated for somewhere in the near future?
anyway i'm almost three-quarters done with the cds, so next week's charts should display the likes of metallica, iron maiden, megadeth, incubus, alice in chains, and some other stuff. i left out blink-182's emo album, and also slipknot's iowa(bad sounds/can't stomach hardcore music these days).
after the 1000 mark i decided to slow down on the scrobbling - each to his own, but personally i want to be able to listen to the tracks i scrobble, not just leave the pc on, set the player on loop, and go on vacation or something.

    Why would you let the program scrobble away while you're not there? personally, I find the whole thing rather eerie, like letting spyware in and out of your system (just my opinion).i'm very attached to the music I play, so basically whatever I listen to reflects the day Im having. Scrobbling pretty much sends a part of me out into the cold, dark internet. I get a weird feeling when I just let a song scrobbled while I take a leak or something :p

    i don't really know, man, cuz when i see some users who're just a coupla months registered, and they've got like, 2-3000 songs under their belt, seems weird to me innit? do you really spend that much time listening to music? COULD you spend that much time? it's not impossible, i'm not against it, but it just kicks my balls of curiosity, hard..unless you're a total stoner, where you could spend hours sitting in one spot, listening to music that takes you all the way to zion, it's a bit unthinkable. thx 4 d feedback anyway mr ATC

    The calculation (i actually did it, after whch I realised i need to get a life): 1 song: average 4 minutes 1 day: 24 X 60 = 1440 mins no of song/day: 1440/4 = 360 songs say a person spends an average of 10 hours online. thus 1 day= 150 songs if a user has listened to 3000 songs, means he's scrobbled tracks for 20 days. thus, you only need 20 days to listen to 3000 tracks :D its kinda amazing when you get the facts in numbers. im a girl, btw :)

    sorry, MISS atc i'm not sure a person spends 10hrs avg online,and if it's true, there's something wrong with this world. therefore, banking on your calculations, with the more logical correction of 3hrs online, in 1 day: 150/10x3=45. am i right? so to scrobble 3000 songs would take about 70days,or 2+months. dont worry the world's full of losers..i spend the largely non-active part of my life with my girlfriend, the PlayStation 2. you should meetup with her someday :-p
