More TMDA/antispam fixes

I found tonight that Postfix was doing enough undocumented header
rewriting to poke holes in the TMDA filter, which let a few spam
messages through yesterday.  This was also the cause of some folks not
having their messages make it to the list (the confirmation messages
were being sent to the inappropriately munged envelope header, and not
to the original sender).

All should now be well.  Complain if something isn't working (in the
mail list system that is :-)

Xiph.Org migration: Planned service outage

Xiph.Org is migrating to a new facility tonight (20020806).  While the
migration is happening, services such as mail, CVS and WWW access will
be suspended during the move, and may take up to an hour after the
move for new DNS to become visible.

Aside from the momentary outage, users and developers should not
notice and change in serve except the fatter pipe :-)

Server cutover complete; waiting for root server DNS propogation


Hello,

All services have been successfully migrated to our new facility.
Unfortunately, NetSol once again displayed a brilliant inability to
grasp a clue using both hands and a suction cup, and informed us they
*might* get around to updating DNS records in about two weeks.  If we
could fax them enough identification.

Needless to say, they've lost our business and our domain transfers
should complete today.  In the meantime, I have two DNS hacks in place
to get requests flowing to the right machines [this is partly for the
benefit of the other site admins]:

Motherfish-HST has been temporarily updated to point at Motherfish-II,
the new DNS server; this host record change will appear at noon EST
and propogate slowly through the day.  When the real domain transfer
happens, we'll change this back.

Motherfish, the actual machine, is redirecting queries to the new
nameserver until the old facility shuts down today.  Until then, it's
stuffing network DNS as full of the new xiph.org records as it can.

Of course, this is just temporary until things settle properly in a
day or two.  For the curious, the new DNS server (Motherfish-II) is at 
198.136.36.245.

Bad frames or bad sectors?

I am trying to use some basic statistical techniques to identify and
correct pops/clicks/etc. in the WAVs that I rip from my old CDs.  The
basic question is -- should I be trying to identify bad "frames" (where
a "frame" is two samples, left and right) or entire bad sectors?

Related to this, do tracks always start and end on sector boundaries,
implying that the WAVs produced by cdparanoia should always be some
multiple of 2352 bytes long (excluding the header)?

Thanks!

bug in filenames

Hi. Forgive me if this is known, but I just checked the FAQ and bug page 
and didn't see it listed...

When creating the tracklist, you substitute a slash with a dash. However, 
no such substitution is done on the Artist or Album variables, which causes 
problems obviously when it can't create the file/directory because it has a 
slash in it :)... I just downloaded the newest version and it didn't have 
this in place so I added it to my local copy.

Perhaps a better place to do all these substitutions is right before it 
creates the file, rather then when it's dealing with the individual variables.

just a thought :) thanks!

noise in extracted tracks

Hello,

I downloaded cdparanoia 9.8 today, and installed it on my Red Hat Linux 7.3 
system (Pentium III 1.13GHz, 640MB ram, TDK cdrom that does DAE at 
~40x).  When I run it (with only the -B option), the extracted tracks have 
lots of noise, and the progress bargraph is full of !s and Vs.

When I put the same drive in my WinXP machine and run Exact Audio Copy, the 
extracted tracks are fine, and no errors are reported.

I've checked through the FAQ and troubleshooting sections on your site, but 
I didn't see anything that seemed to address my problem.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Anthony

I have no idea if this will help or not, but the man page talks about a
'-S' switch that lets you set the speed of the drive.  You might try
playing with this.  40X is awfully fast, and I know that EAC slows down
the drive when it encounters an error.

P.S.  Be happy.  At least cdparanoia is actually reporting errors on
      your system.  On mine it doesn't report any errors, but I get
      tracks that sound like a Rice Krispies commercial.
