I don't know how many of you are familiar with the Last.fm personalized
internet radio service, but it is a *good* thing to be sure, but due to its
mode of operation currently not accessible via Slimserver.

I've noticed that they have now announced the availability of a webservice to
allow initiation and control of one of their streams, and idly wondered if any
of our fantasticly talented plugin devs might fancy their chances at knocking
up some sort of interface?

Webservice details are at http://www.audioscrobbler.com/development/lastfm-
ws.php

Main website is at http://www.last.fm

I don't know that I qualify as "fantastically talented" -- but I'd be
game to look at least.

Sadly, both of the web sites are down.

Ok. :-)

I'm able to connect to the sites mentioned above now. The API seems
pretty easy... I'll take a shot at it.
