I need a bigger iPod.

Or at least I need to way reorganize my playlist structure.

Sing it sister! I'm reorganizing my playlists for the imminent arrival of my 60Gb iPod, and find that I can have BOTH "Classical" and "Punk" playlists on the iPod at the same time, instead of one or the other.

You know, I bet not many people can say that.

I find I am often incredibly curious about other people's music collections (actually, that's complex enough to be a post of it's own). I wish there was a way to mark your iTunes library as 'public', so people could browse it (but not copy/listen to the music - just look at the song list).

I ended up sorting mine by genres (well, Jimmy Buffet got his own genre defined). Then I set up smart playlists so I always have, say, a gig of jazz/blues, a gig of country, half a gig of flying music, and so on.

I wish the "random" playlists changed more, though. I can plug the iPod in and it sometimes only updates 25 songs out of 6 gigs. I probably should go buy one of those "iTunes" tips books to see if there's a way to make them change more.

Somebody I know was working on a script to take an iTunes list and turn it into a web page. Damned if I can remember who it was, though. It shouldn't be that hard, since it's XML.

Here's irony: I'm a computer programmer by trade, and yet I ask my friend the research biologist to write AppleScripts for me, and one of the ones he wrote me takes one of my iTunes playlists, and makes another playlist of a random X megabytes of the first one, but does it an album at a time because I like "shuffle by album" better than "shuffle by tune".

That would be me. :)

It was a pain, because it's really crappy XML.
