could you explain more to me about what you said "people were requesting the feature to upload their last played song to last.fm, and I was thinking it should be a relatively simple extension of what this program already does..."
maybe I could add this feature to the program.
...That comment was a while ago now, so it's no longer fresh in my mind. I'm not the best one to talk to about this because I don't use last.fm, but basically it's a place to store information about songs you listen to, and it helps recommend songs you may like... or something.
Thanks for explaining how it works. I need to fiddle with it a bit more to make a proper bug report, but it currently doesn't seem to work very well with FoFiX (or perhaps it's Windows Vista/7 it's having the problem with). Quite often it will not go back to idle after playing a song and will not change song to the next one you play...
