But anyway blocking it should not prevent it from working.

When my laptop is connected to the network at work (and therefore internet), Atomix loads almost instantly.
When my laptop is at home and not connected to the internet it takes about 30-45 seconds for the Atomix logo to appear after double clicking the icon. It then takes a further 10-15 seconds for the program to load... if at all. When it doesn't load, I need to reset the laptop to ensure a stable platform.
I use Atomix live at several gigs per month, and this really starting to bug me... sometimes I only have a short time from getting to the DJ area to being ready to play. With vinyl this is no probs, I just throw some plastic on and start playing. With Atomix it takes long enough for me to connect the laptop to power supply and mixer. The last thing I want to be doing is then wait for the software which sometimes doesn't load at all... :(

I've blocked the Atomix-application so that it only has access to local connections and even if you don't have a firewall that you can control (i.e. at work) you can always add the hosts that Atomix tries to connect in your hosts-file and direct those host-adresses to your local loopback adress ("127.0.0.1 autoupdate.atomixmp3.com" for example)
I have been blocking theses connections without any problems starting or running Atomix so there seems to be another problem.. maybe it's your firewall that delays Atomix' startup cause mine doesn't.

I personally like the feature and want to see the final homepage version of it... top tracks would be really nice :D
See if you can make it so that when a trackname is clicked on, an audiogalaxy search starts with that... LOL

They can't possibly make any good statistics out of that... so sending that info in the current form won't do any good unless the team sits down with every data-entry and reads/corrects/lookup and correct again ...which will never happen...
Without a proper way to read actual trackname/artistname-info (ID3, preferably the new and improved tags too) that simply won't work...
and saying that people have to conform to the Atomix naming-scheme would just make me laugh since their naming-scheme seems to divide everything at the first hyphen and it has no recollection of what is artist/track/album-names.
