See a Problem?
I recently became separated from a rather large compact disc collection. We live in the Digital Age, so this is theoretically not a problem; almost everything I listened to on CD is available on demand through the ever expanding selection of streaming music services--Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Prime Music, and dozens of others. But have you ever stared into empty search box? Sometimes it's staring into the abyss, a soul-scraping job.
