    When I downloaded some stuff from Magnetic's download thingy, the Dr. Firebrain stuff is just listed under Jonathan's name now. And on emusic, it comes up something like Hieronymus Firebrain/Jonathan Segel. It's enough to break the scrobbles.

    some songs just don't show up in the charts here, even though I know I played them and they show up in my list.
