So what with rebuilding websites and changing hosts, I apparently wasn't spending enough time in front of a monitor, so I installed Gronk!, a browser based MP3 jukebox system. It was a bear to set up (don't bother trying unless you're fairly comfortable with perl and apache), but it works very nicely and does what I want it to do - just plays things randomly, but allows for queueing songs (or even entire albums) to play. Also, while it was a bitch to set up, it works, unlike any of the various iTunes rip-offs for linux that seem to be popping up nowadays.

By the way, the stats after this mad round of ripping: 3071 MP3s occupying 20GB, which represents 233 hours, 11 minutes and 53 seconds of music. That basically means I'm a dozen CDs or so away from having 10 days worth.
