Okay, so my browser had lost the wits and lost my login cookie to Last.FM,  that happens, no big deal.  And I got this cute note from them about being elegible for their beta site. Dunno how many did, maybe all, maybe not.   Well, no matter.

I go there, and try to log in. It tells me, "currently only subscribers" ... What?  They want me to pay \~3euro to get in?  On a Subscription basis?

Turns out that if you log in to the normal site, it kept my credentials, but I fear that I'll need a new Audioscrobbler soon, since Last.FM goes the way of the paysite.

And frankly, while it's nice, it's not that nice.
