I Am Whole Once More

Back on March 5 of last year, I lost my Winamp playlist. I started rebuilding it right away. I’ve posted a few updates since then, as I have continued to work on it as much as I can.

This is a historic night. I’ve finished the playlist. I am whole once more. I no longer have to listen to music as work to get my playlist finished – it’s finished. My Last.fm account will finally be seeing some activity again. It took me exactly 300 days. Wow.

Back when I lost my playlist, my music libary consisted of 13,657 files in 1,465 folders taking up 47.6 GB of space in all. Now, it’s 17,828 files, 2,004 folders and 64.4 GB. I added 4,171 files in 300 days. That’s almost 14 new songs (basically, an album) a day. LOL. Listening to (and buying) music is definitely a hobby of mine.
