Now Playing

You may notice that my front page’s nav bar has a new section – Now Playing. Well I was browsing through the Movable Type forums looking for interesting tweaks, and came across this tutorial which teaches you how to sync up your Winamp player to your weblog.
Essentially you configure Winamp to send a trackback ping which can then be displayed, as an include file, on your website.
I’m so excited I can’t sleep. I’ve been a supporter of Winamp since its shareware days (where I convinced dad to let me use his credit card so I could make a voluntary donation of US$10 to Nullsoft’s cause) – and I am an ardent supporter of Movable Type, so I’m doubly happy that they can now be connected to each other.
