Hey @Gargron

Hearing the difference now isn’t the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses near lossless compression, while MP3 is ‘lossy’. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA – it’s about 12kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don’t want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.

I started collecting MP3s in about 2006, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange…well don’t get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. It's ridiculous. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren’t stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you’ll be glad you did.

Hey quad. A quick question about Void Linux.
After all your shilling I kinda want to give it a go/pitch it to our infrastructure here.
I was wondering. What does it use for networking? Is it NetworkManager?
And also. Is there ARM support?

I've posted about this on our Steam group before, but never here.
We are running our own Monero mining pool!
Called "LolisAndStuff Swimming Pool"
Here you can find it:

And more info about Monero here:

Hope to see you mining there soon!

To the people on here. How did you find out about this instance?
I've set this up kinda as an experiment. We'll see how it goes for the future.

Last night I had yet another conversation with web devs about why it's not a good thing for "everyone to just use Chrome". This morning I wake up & see yet another Chrome-only site. I really think we have a problem. Pls let's try to fix this together, for the sake of the web ❤️
