The downside, and how it could be fixed.
Authored by: A. Square on May 20, '04 02:47:00PM

The only problem I've had with using this script is you can no longer easily see which songs you've been listening to, and which songs you've been skipping. Of course, even if you use "last played" as it was intended, you can't tell how many times you've listened to a track in a given time period.

What I'd love to see is an app that periodically looked at your iTunes Library XML file (where all the play counts are stored), and tells you how many times you've played each track in the past time period. This way, you could have a view of what's in heavy rotation for that week, month, or whatever. By using the play counts to compare, you'd get two benefits: one, it would work with this script, and two, you'd see if songs got played more than once in the time period.

Does any such app exist? Anyone want to write it?

You know, you could have the skip script adjust "date modified" instead of "date last played". I've never been able to think of a useful use for "date modified" anyway.
