Anyone know what Spoon's plans are for replacing FreeDB now that the project is closing?

R12 should allow for a multiplicity of tag reference sources.

Going going gone.
Someone better start moving fast!
The http://www.freedb.org/index.php
site URL is already up for grabs.

freedb could go and be replaced by an irritating spam site, freedb2.org is up and running (hint in dMC R11.5 options, change the server from freedb.freedb.org to freedb2.org and it will work), and we are switching to a commercial (and better in our eyes AMG) and will keep freedb (or freedb2) as backup.

I tried changing the server, and it apparently failed because dMC Audio CD Input pulled the data from au.freedb.org instead.

Hmmmm so it does, I wonder why. Lets hope R12 comes out real soon ;)

I have to say I am very happy with its secure mode, in my tests it beats EAC...

really, i dont know what all the fuss is about. i mean its great that we can stick a cd in the drive and it collects all the artist and song titles for us but we already know what that is and with a little effort we can actually type it in those little boxes provided :teufel8:

A few years ago i was talkng to someone about the huge amount of paper work they did in their daily job. After much discussion i was perplexed on how this person did all this without a computer. I stared at this person with a blank look on my face as they pulled a ball point pen out of thier top pocket to show me :D

indeed how many times I typed many things, especially before internet (no not before internet was invented, before I had access ;))... copy paste was a discovery on pc after a lot of work on a C64 ;)
