I believe you - and, man that would be so cool!

As for sound quality - one of my favourite performances of 'Old man' is a live one with Neil on on his guitar that I first saw on youtube, with a pair of crap headphones (think it's this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?... work, can't test). Anyway, it's brilliant and to me at least just goes to prove it's the song, the tune, the lyrics that matter and not being able to hear every single frequency in perfect clarity. ...but that's just my opinion. It's also my opinion that people who seem to care so much about speakers, wires, amps etc. are more into speakers, wires and amps than music. I've had the same Technics amp for 25 years...it's fine.

I've never understand it. I've been collecting/ripping mp3s (and then later oggs) ever since about '97. I've never need a tool to 'organise' my collection. Every OS I've ever used has had this really clever idea called the directory (or folder). It's quite simple really, I haev one top-level directory called 'Music' and inside I have an 'A' folder, a 'B' folder etc. etc. Inside I have (here's the clever bit) more directories eg. 'Ah-ha', with that I have directories for each album by the band.

Okay, I have one directory under 'M' called 'Misc' which is getting a bit large by hey-ho.

Oh and I own all those files, they're mine and I can copy them onto any device I own and share with friends should I want to.

Screw Apple and screw anybody that doesn't let me own my music collection and potentially pass it onto my children. Props to Amazon that allows me to buy DRM-free mp3's (along with the CD! awesome!)

Does anyone else remember the hacked version of Great Giana Sisters from Red Sector. I assume it's the same people.

Anyway, completely awesome achievement...It would probably take me ages to write something similiar in a high-level language. Amazing.
