I'm glad I work with Apple Lossless that I can personally easily convert to mp3. But I agree with you for sure on the protected file thing.

Yep. I remember trying a "protected song converter" that butchered like 10 tracks on my DI 4 list. Also, .wma files can suck many dicks.

Who even uses WMA any more? I thought that shit had gone to the same hell as RealPlayer audio files.

I remember asking you if you could send me the link for it, and then butchering tracks of my own on my DI4 and possibly DI5 list.

It's thinking like this that allowed the Jonas Brothers to happen to America.

hey thanks I always enjoy your lists because they're something different (and I'm now a metalhead-in-training thanks to my friend/bandmate, though my list won't have much rocking out this time around. just the way it turned out. )

wma = shitfest

as for protected itunes files, there is no reason for that to happen. the uploader can easily just burn the files onto an audio CD and rip them back into iTunes - I did that in past DI's. Also, really, is it that hard to find another copy of the song somewhere on the internet? anyway, iTunes has been DRM-free for awhile so any recently purchased songs won't be protected anyway

When I first made the list in summer 2008, that Fleet Foxes pick was cutting edge. Now?

I wonder I'm also using the same song. Hopefully not.

so, a question, because i'm considering this.

the playlists are coming out in groups of four or five at a time? and then all that's needed is a ranking, is this correct?

Four master threads featuring five lists a piece. And yes, all you need is a ranking featuring all 20 lists. Same thing we did for Best of '00s, except the playlist release is staggered.
