How fast does misinformation travel? It seems to defy physics sometimes!
I just realized I sent him a test a month ago. He hasn't responded with his results yet.

Hey! My like buttons reappeared! Can you guys see my like button now?

FLAC or ALAC?
 Electronic music has no relationship to live music in the traditional sense. It isn't like an acoustic guitar in a room that has a natural frequency response and room acoustic.

 I have a test I would be happy to share with you. It's ten samples of music in a FLAC file. The samples consist of AAC, MP3 Fraunhofer and MP3 LAME at 192, 256 and 320... plus one sample which is lossless. It's your job to listen to them and tell which is which to the best of your ability. There is just one rule to the test... you can only listen to the samples, you aren't allowed to open them in an audio editing program. If you would like to hear the truth for yourself,...
