Quick Rant

Hey folks,  just need to get something off my chest really quick.

Is it really that hard to upload in high quality mp3 format to a site that doesn't make you jump through hoops to download?  Can we please put rapidshare to rest, along with all of this lossless, .cue, .bin, 240mb .flac file bullshit? 

While I do realize that there are some among us that feel some elitist sense of pride by using some obscure, little-used format in the same way that Emo kids don't realize being different for the sake of being different is just as "phony" as the cool kids they like to make fun of, I have to say its a pain in the ass to spend time searching and downloading only to find out I can't use the files.

And yes, I know .flac isn't that obscure a format, but vs. mp3 or even .wav files it is, and the meager quality increase over mp3 isn't worth having to search for an hour for a  program to burn the damn files only to realize you can't on a Mac unless you get a translator, THEN have to truncate all the  individual song files, tag them, etc.

If I have offended you, please multiply the feeling times 10 and stop with the bullshit.

The End

That said, I've got some more SS nuggets coming up in the next week so stay tuned...
