Really great tip
Authored by: Twitch on Jan 27, '03 04:16:31PM

This was a great tip, I'm always interested in how others are setting up playlists and such. I've got a 20 gig, and I'm still trying to figure out different methods of making the Smart Lists.

Thanks Bruddah, this was awesome

Really great tip

Been doing this since November last year with a least played play list. I really love smart play lists! The Mac + iTunes + the built in speech makes an excellent alarm clock.
Just have a simple least played rule set:
> 2 stars and last played != 35 days & live update == on.
Also have a recently played list:
last played in in the last 2 days

Getting back to the alarm clock - using cron to start itunes playing the least played list @ 6:00 am. Then have two more cron entries that pause the music, announce the time with the built in voice, then resume the music. Sweet!

Kick ass!

That's an awesome idea too. Wish there was a place where we could post all these ideas, not to take away from this site of course, only the Smart Playlist ideas...
