    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    What does it mean when you do the same thing over and over again and you GET different results?

    I mostly listen on iPod, scrobbling every two or three days. Recently I have been getting some odd results. Friday's scrobble was a total success. Since then I have listened to 101 tracks on ten albums. Only 75 tracks scrobbled leaving me to resort to Universal Scrobbler to scrobble the remainder:

    Dark Side of the Moon
    Juicy Lucy
    The Civil Surface

    Let's see what happens next time

    27 Sep 2011, 22:30 - 256 Plays - 38 Albums - 254 Scrobbles.

    As the two tracks not scrobbled are less than 30 Secs - I'll call that a PASS!

    Walking the Dog

    28 Sep 2011, 22:45 - 87 Plays - 14 Albums - 19 Scrobbles. (21.8%)

    Ipod plays were interrupted by listing to Computer vs. Banjo on Grooveshark. Could that have upset things?
