Happy December folks!  .... now where is my snow?
I've been following this story closely and it does seem that the FCC chairman is acting on behalf of the telecoms companies. He used to work as a Lawyer for Verizon and it would appear he's still serving those interests. It wouldn't surprise me if he gets a nice cushy job at Verizon, Comcast or AT&T after his stint at the FCC is over. Just a way for them to get around bribery laws with future employment opportunities.
I wonder who donated to Donald..  :suspious:

US regulators have rolled back the net neutrality rules enshrined in law under President Barack Obama.
The change is seen as a major victory for the telecoms industry but a blow to those who favour an internet that offers equal access to all.
It could pave the way for net providers to offer "fast lanes" - where only wealthy companies can afford the best connections to consumers. Some 21 million comments were submitted in a public debate about the proposals.

In a statement, chairman Ajit Pai said the Federal Communications Commission's proposals would stop federal government "micro-managing the internet". Telecoms companies such as Comcast, Verizon and AT&T agree.

But a range of other companies such as Netflix, Google and Amazon, say the FCC's proposals will make it easier for the telecoms companies to give priority to their own streaming video services or impede messaging tools such as Skype or WhatsApp. The proposals will now be voted on at the next FCC meeting, on 14 December.

As the body has a Republican majority, they are expected to be approved and will probably take effect early next year although consumer groups have said they will challenge them in the courts.

Yet another excuse for a short term "buck making fest" for the always greedy US Telecommunications sector., you get what you pay for in politics it seems.
WinMx World News / Whos watching Your Keystrokes ?
« Last post by GhostShip on November 21, 2017, 06:01:50 pm »
Dirty work afoot folks  :x

Hundreds of web firms are tracking every single keystroke made by visitors, a study from Princeton University has suggested.
The technique - known as session replay - is used by companies to gain an understanding of how customers use websites.

These scripts record your keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behaviour, along with the entire contents of the pages you visit, and send them to third-party servers," the researchers said in a blog.

"Collection of page content by third-party replay scripts may cause sensitive information such as medical conditions, credit card details and other personal information displayed on a page to leak to the third party as part of the recording.

The researchers looked at seven firms that offer session replay software - FullStory, SessionCam, Clicktale, Smartlook, UserReplay, Hotjar and Yandex.

Firms using the software included the UK's news website the Telegraph, Samsung, Reuters, US retail giant Home Depot and CBS News.

Theres no excuse for this sort of activity, I have visited some of these sites and will now not ever do so again, I hope many of you will do the same and let such entities know spying on visitors is immoral, unethical and most probably illegal.

You may notice Spotify is on that list.
WinMx World News / IBM Teams Up To Launch New "Filtering DNS" System
« Last post by GhostShip on November 20, 2017, 01:15:19 pm »
This may be helpful to some of you .

The Global Cyber Alliance has given the world a new free Domain Name Service resolver, and advanced it as offering unusually strong security and privacy features.
The Quad9 DNS service, at, not only turns URIs into IP addresses, but also checks them against IBM X-Force's threat intelligence database. Those checks protect agains landing on any of the 40 billion evil sites and images X-Force has found to be dangerous.

The Alliance (GCA) was co-founded by the City of London Police, the District Attorney of New York County and the Center for Internet Security and styled itself "an international, cross-sector effort designed to confront, address, and prevent malicious cyber activity."
IBM's helped the project in two ways: back in 1988, Big Blue secured the block of 16 million addresses, which let it dedicate to the cause.

There are some folks voicing reservations over trusting anyone with their net traffic lookups, but regardless like google DNS its out there if you want it or want to tweak the old folks machine to prevent any potential financial losses from scam sites.

cdex instructions on this site are as valid today as when they were written....... that being said there is a much better cd ripping program for windows called 'exact audio copy' which is especially good for troublesome (read: very old) drives or cds with a lot of scratches or data layer damage that causes distortions or very harsh 'pffft! pffft! pffft!' or other strange sounds in the music when they are 'played' with something such as windows media player in the drive they are intended to be ripped in..... is the website and contains very good documentation in its FAQ section...... however if cdex is providing you with the functions and quality of audio you deem appropriate for your needs continue to use cdex to your hearts content.... the tutorial here contains all the needed info on how to use the software.... if you have any questions feel free to start a thread in the audio section of the forum....

good luck in your endeavors!

Try Something like this in the "File Format " tab

%2\ - %1\ -%7 - %4

I havent used the program on this particular machine but I think the idea is that the the fields are the numbered elements and you simply swap the position of the ones you wish to see into the right place and pop the seperators or underscores as you wish in the mixture, there used to be a help button in the program itself to assist you with this , let me know if you get stuck and I'll install it and take a peek myself.

Hi and welcome to the forum  :)

I looked at the cdex site and indeed it seems their forum is non operational, the program itself is however pretty much self explanatory , is there something specific you wanted to do with cdex ?

I am assuming you have read this page already but in case you havent,

PS: Please let me know if the program has changed substantially so I can work on an update if necessary.
Audio Help / cdex file naming convention
« Last post by bbxrider on November 07, 2017, 11:14:39 pm »
been using cdex and like it very much, however  I have a problem, I want to get the output files all into a single folder of my choosing and have the .mp3's named by songtitle_artitst_album.mp3 but can't seem to get there (dashes instead of underscores is ok)

for example when using C:\Users\someDir\someDir\%4%1%2 a sample file name I get is: f-Dannii Minogue- Push-123New ArtistNew Title.mp3, for this example I would like to get:
Push-Dannii Minogue-neon nights.mp3
