I think most of these things can be accomplished using iTunes Smart
Playlists.

I have smart playlists that include "Added in the last 2 weeks", "Year is
between 1970 and 1979", as well as "Grouping contains On-U", etc. iTunes
has some very flexible filtering options in the Smart Playlists, and it
also updates them automatically. Tell Slim to pick up the custom iTunes
playlists and then let it do it's thing. Presto.

As long as we're looking at accessing the music, I like to keep a
listing of all the albums in a book on the coffee table, take out my
remote and punch in the number of the album to play it. (I was using
a 400 CD changer). I'm using a G4 and iTunes instead. Now, I have
to sit and scroll through the display on the Squeezebox (which I love
by the way) in a cabinet , or go to the home office computer to make
selections. I found it easier to skim a book, find what I wanted and
simply punch in the number. Any ideas?
