[edlug] messy music collections



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

hi,

my flatmates and i have decided we are going to stick all our music on one 
server.  problem is, i am the only one who actually has any structure for 
storing them; when ripping a cd, grip sorts out folders/subfolders etc, and 
its all pretty. Someone else has every file in a single directory, and 
another has them all sorted into directories named after the day they were 
ripped on, and no filenames for the tracks! what I am looking for is a 
program that will trawl through their collections and use ID3 information to 
sort the files into nice named directories etc. Does anyone know of an 
appropriate program/script?

vaguely related to this, i have to haul my laptop into the kitchen if we want 
music. Which would be fine, except my wlan connection seems to... well, stop 
every now and then (once every 2 minutes or something) which really upsets 
anyone singing along to  the music when it stops... it's a belkin card 
(prism2 chipset) and doesnt seem to have this problem under windows. any 
suggestions greatfully recieved!

thanks!
