i was going to be enraged and crap here about it
but fuck it, i just suck at everything

is 3d-printing one of the things that people/hackers call "fun"?
thinking more about it, i don't even know what's fun

too much extruded material but probably good for a first

unironically, i feel afraid as fuck when seeing stuff about 3d printing, even when it looks inviting like this

Internet, 2002; claiming that you're over 18 so that websites will let you in.

Internet, 2018: claiming that you're under 16 and in the EU so that websites cannot track your data

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.
