Hey Vic,
How about having an option under each artist listed, where you could select to be notified of new postings. That way we can track fav artists easily??

If you have an RSS feed reader you should be able to do this using:

http://ccmixter.org/rss/Awk...

use the artists login name at the end

(or at least that’s how it’s supposed to work ;)

There are feed reeders built into Firefox and Thunderbird or you can use a free web based one like bloglines.com

Let me know if it works/it’s broken.

From the "Bookmarks" menu select "Manage Bookmarks".

A window will pop up.

From the "File" select "New Live Bookmark…"

type/paste the feed url into there.

Peace,
Victor

You know, that is really cool! It works great for me (i’m using netnewswire lite).

Thanks Victor…

would it give you a notification if that artist’s track was sampled by somebody else?

Like for example, every time LDB was sampled? That would be a cool feature. But I don’t think that’s possible right now. I could be wrong. : )

I have been pondering a ‘notify me when I’ve been sampled’ — but to be honest it looks like people love to load their own pages so it may be redundant ;)

There aren’t that many remixes uploaded on any given day so you can watch (for now)

I’ll be sending out a feature request mail in a few weeks to gather requirements for the next version of the site
