From: Jas For : Right Of Reply (for publication) Subj: MP3 I don't see how the music industry can continue in its current form. Over here in the UK they are really pumping for everyone to switch to Digital Radio. V.basically this is an Mpeg stream put out over a radio signal. http://www.bbc.co.uk/digitalradio/tech.shtml So if you have the gear you can make near CD quality recordings straight from the radio. How do you stop that? From: anona For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: <font> I still use the font tag, i use stylesheets a lot but sometimes when i need a font color around just a couple of characters I would rather stick a font tag around them than have to find my stylesheet, define a class, and then remember what i named the class when i come to reference it. If you guys think it sucks then take the damn support out for the font tag! From: James D For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Ogg Vorbis Thanks for mentioning Ogg Vorbis. I've been using it for all my music ever since beta4 (pre rc-1) came out and I've been very impressed. Not only are the encoded files smaller (For the same bitrate) but they also (IMHO) sound much better! Ogg Vorbis supports variable bitrate, streaming and it has a real commenting system unlike the id3 hack for mp3. Another thing I like about Vorbis but don't actually use is peeling. If you run a streaming server, you can stream at a lower bitrate than the file was encoded on the fly. No need to have multiple versions of files at difference bitrates! From: Dave For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: HTML & Lynx > How does Aardvark look in Lynx? Very well thank you. Please please please don't change anything as lynx is often my only way of viewing your site.Hit Reload For Latest Comments
