I'm doing this for several reasons, first foremost, to get a naming convention that is more conducive to use in mp3 players and secondly, to consolidate 7 years worth of collecting into a more elegant collection. I've saved lots of things over the years that I know I'll never listen to again. Finally, and most obviously, to create redundancy. I've lost stuff over the years because I've lost a disc, or a disc has become damaged. I figure it'll be simpler to have the redundancy than trying to find something again.
The other thing I want to do is to revamp the Beastie Boys site I run. See, the Beastie Boys have a new record coming out this June, so I was thinking it's something I should do, I just hadn't devoted any time to it yet. Well, time is all I've got for the next two months. I've been expecting a spike in traffic in anticipation of the new album... and boy has it happened. I usually average about 600-700 hits a week, with occasional forays into the quad digits. On sunday I had (drum roll) in excess of 5,000 hits... just on Sunday! And so far today, I've already had nearly 1,000. I did a little research through some logging tools at my disposalbe and discovered that someone posted my site link to Metafilter which was responsible for a lot of it.
I feel like a big time webmaster now or something. I feel I have a bit of an obligation to make the website look a little more presentable.
