There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

k .. just a pedantic situation about specifics & terms. It was an education to me because I did not know there was a difference, only that FLAC had 'some' tag limitations. Thus I referred to them as ID3 tags when they should have been referred to differently. Thank you for educating me about the difference with FLAC & that some devices or/& software is highly sensitive to FLAC comments or ID3 tags.

About time such software updated to the 'real' flac of today huh!? Sounds like they are way behind in definitions of flac; probably working with older flac library definitions. As I hinted earlier, not such great programming on 'their' part. BTW I didn't see Foobar2000 mentioned at FLAC site.

Back on topic; Direct Connect was the next best p2p for me. Unfortunately it seems all such development for the Mac OSX platform ceased several years ago. Even on OSX 10.3 it didn't function that well, & didn't work in 10.4 on my older G4. But it was great because of course, there were both private & public hubs, similar to torrents in that respect. Also the DC programs did not carry their shares on their shoulders like some gnutella programs so could share literally 100,000+ files. I used to share from an external drive. The only p2p program that has truely succeeded with that on a (my) mac.
I ended up using DC++ & off-shoot variations on Virtual PC running windows to overcome the OSX issues.

Sleepless is just really nice

Since this thread got so way off topic anyways and into the world of FLAC, tags and players, I might as well add this.

When we get into the really insane encodes, like 24bit 48kHz or even 96kHz FLAC Vinyl rips, most players will not be able to decode those. Including but not limited to the ever popular VLC, iTunes, MPC and older versions of Foobar2000.

You will need to have the never versions of Foobar2000 or other players with FLAC decoding options, which will notice the 24bit depth. I am guessing the same goes for 32bit, although I had nothing to test that with.

The FLAC tester will say they are corrupt, even with the newest FLAClib. But it will both decode to .wav and encode back to the same exact FLAC.

I almost deleted a few albums last night thinking they were corrupt. Thanks God I did some Googling before I did. Especially considering the size of the albums. Like the 24bit 96kHz copy of the limited edition double album of ...And Justice For All is over 1.3GB in size for just over 65 minutes of music. You don't have to edit that because I own the Original.

But it's all worth it. The CD sounds like crap compared to the Vinyl. There is just something about Vinyl that a CD just doesn't catch.

These encodes are not playable on CD. If someone was to burn them, they would first need to get the sample rate down to 44.100Hz by first decoding to .wav and the using something like r8brain (freeware)

The main difference in sound quality between vinyl and CD has to do with compression. Analog has a much richer tone, but will distort at high volume. Digital doesn't distort, but the compression causes the sound to be a bit tinny. Same reason vacuum tube amps have a richer sound than solid state amps.

If the original recording was not re-mastered for digital. A problem with all the earliest CD's that were originally vinyl records was just as Blackhorse suggested, they all sounded tinny. The vinyl versions sounded heaps better. I recall I even had a cassette tape recording of a vinyl record that sounded heaps better than the CD of the same album. I ended up some years later purchasing the remastered version. I had wondered since whether that was done deliberately for marketing reasons.

Not sure about FLAC, but Toast on mac converts 24 bit or/& 96 KHz audio to audio cd or standard 16 bit 41.1 KHz without issue in my experience. However, I'd prefer to use a proper audio pro editing program for the purpose of such downsampling.

I don't like some of the remastered versions. Most of them are as good as the original pressing but there are exceptions. If we take e.g. Hysteria, a cousin of mine owns both the Vinyl and the original CD pressing, while I own only the remastered version. I only listen to my copy of the original CD pressing while the remastered version I haven't even bothered to rip.

I don't think the person(s) who remastered that one can even have heard the original vinyl before remastering it. Either that or they brought their own artistic views onto it, which IMO is a nono.

BTW pretty nice that Toast will recognize sample rate before burning. Many programs don't and most others need some kind of plugin.
