No, because:

a(y,l) => a(sp,l) || (sh>=r) as r -> infinity
       => ~a(y,sp) && ~(sh<r)
       => :suffer:

We only need 5 more (semi-active)members for the radio station feature to work, I think. :P

Description:
Come and join fellow Fannatics of Phoenix Online Studios forthcoming game, The Silver Lining, in sharing thoughts about music from the game and members personal tastes in music.

Visit our site to download the first public demo of the forthcoming game and check out our media section for mountains of goodies.

Last.fm "records" the music you listen to(whether online or local), creates statistics and graphs (http://www.last.fm/group/The%2BSilver%2BLining/charts) based upon this data, alters the music played on the TSL Last.fm station to better match the group's musical tastes(I think everyone wants to kick Aaron and me out because of that little detail :P), and has a forum (http://www.last.fm/group/The%2BSilver%2BLining/forum) to discuss music(or to take random quizzes, whichever the case may be ;P). It also has a few other very nice features... but those are the basics.

If you mainly listen to historical music(seen quite a bit of that in the "song of the moment" thread), no worries... you'll fit right in with Aaron and me. ;P

Oh, and I have on more thing to say... Farquhar and Zelly listen to  Kidneythieves(they made music for Deus Ex: Invisible War)! XD
I already knew that, but felt the need to announce it. :P

I already joined cuz LN wants to know the true insanity of my music. ;P I wonder if the plugin is active at the moment though, I've had to reinstall winamp a number of times due to strange glitches...

Edit: yeah, looks like it is active still. XD

Come on... don't you want to help us enable the TSL Last.fm station(5 people seem to have "dropped out" when the KQIX group was moved over ;P)?

Okay then... let's do this one at a time, put them on the spot. XD

SAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!
You wanta help, don'tcha? :P

P.S.
If she kills me, I'm leaving all my posts to Kelsey(since B'rrr is AFF). Then she'll be the #1 poster. XB
*watches Kelsey cross her fingers, hoping he'll get killed* ;P

Well, I'm still not very sure what is going on, but I just signed up so that will probably change.  ::)

1. It records the music you play
Quote
It's elementary! Once you've signed up and downloaded Last.fm, just listen to music through your computer's music player – as you do every day. The name of each song you play will be automatically sent to our servers and saved in your musical profile. We call this “scrobbling,” and it's the basis of everything we do at Last.fm, from personalised recommendations to radio, music charts to musical neighbours, and much more.

Over ten million times a day, Last.fm users fuel the social music revolution by scrobbling their tracks. Ready to share your musical insights with friends, family, and the world? It's free, easy, and a lot of fun: go ahead and scrobble!

2. It will then create stats/charts based on this data.
Notice the Top Artists and Top Tracks in this example (http://www.last.fm/user/Louisiana_Night/) page. More detailed charts, based on date, are available in the chart section of that page. The Journal section/tab is similar to a blog, but usually deals with music(due to the site's subject matter). Groups are like the TSL Last.fm group, Friends are kind of like contacts in messengers(it's more of a formality than anything, I don't think there is any actual change in status), and Neighbours are people who share your musical tastes.

3. You can join groups with similar interests to you(usually dealing with some sort of music). When it has 15 active members, the group gets its own online radio station(which requires broadband :P). This includes stats/charts for the group, and a group message board. Example Group (http://www.last.fm/group/The%2BSilver%2BLining)

4.
Then there are some nice "extras" like being able to put your chart(s) in your signature, on your website, or wherever you find to place the code.

Do you want more details? :P
