Update to My Scrobbling Test

I spent a bit of time this evening updating my scrobbler (if you can call it that), which I have written about before.

It simply makes it a lot easier to use: enter your username and password, click the button (I know the enter key doesn’t work, and I hate myself for not being able to fix it). You’ll move to a page where you need to enter three fields (artist, track and length) and click submit. Done. When compared to the old method, it’s several thousand times better.

I feel much happier. I’m trying to do something interesting with it involving Delicious, but we’ll see if I can get the code working or not…

By the way: not including a giant, massive link to the new page is one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. facepalm.

Surely.. just surely.. there’s a jQuery function that listens for the enter key press when the form is focused, and then WHAMMY!?!?! …right?

There is? Daaamn, I haven’t even looked yet. I still don’t understand why it isn’t the default behaviour for browsers when there’s some input fields and a button on the page.
