I've decided to get really organized with my mp3 collection. I've tried it in the past, but this time I'm going to carry through. I got a plan ... I'm starting to sort everything. At the top level I'm having just directories of artists, then under those directories for albums, and if I only have singles, that artist will still have a separate directory. I then have a "By Genre" directory with symlinks to the By Artist sub-directories ... so an artist can exist in multiple genres. I'm also going to have a bunch of playlists and stuff, auto-generated. I'm then going to serve it all (to our house only) with Apache::MP3 ....
Part of the reason I'm doing this is because I've discovered I have over 20 GB of unused disk space. Unfortunately, most of that is on my Win2k box, so maybe I'll setup a bunch of smbfs mounts. Hrm.... project.
