    I find the spreadsheet layout very helpful. (I think Puddletag copied that from mp3tag for Windows.)
    Also the "explorer tree" is useful.

    Is that boring? I've read good things about Manjaro.

    Ubuntu Budgie is the first distro I've ever "lived with" on a home computer. I was emboldened to try it after working on a company-issued RHEL7 laptop for a couple years. I had a bit of a learning curve on that, figuring out where everything was: but honestly it was no worse than going from WinNT to Win7, or Win7 to Win10. The Office suite was there, you just had to look in a different spot to access it; and so forth. After a week or two I was humming along without thinking about it. That made the idea of Linux for a home computer seem much more feasible, when our old Win7 finally gave up the ghost.

    I use the Ubuntu desktop for managing music files, paying Zero AD, and making pics & gifs from NFL Gamepass for tweets and for posts on football discussion boards. My son splits time for his schoolwork, doing some on a school-issued Chromebook and some on the home desktop. My wife & stepdaugher also have userid's on it – but they have laptops of their own, so no need to bother with it. But we have used it for family Zoom calls on holidays.

    It just works. Which is wonderful.

    The tool on your "Technical Articles" page that catches my eye, is "CAO". The use-case I'm thinking of is, I've got an "album" of different flac files, and the "album" is not at the correct sound level. I'd like to use Audacity to bring the sound level up or down, to be consistent with something else; maybe so I can play a few pieces together back-to-back. But I want to change it uniformly, not alter some tracks by amount "a" and other tracks by amount "b".

    Seems like CAO would be just the tool to make one big master flac file, which I could then manipulate for sound level, and then split back out into its component flacs.

    Mystery Solved. My Asunder is now populating track titles again. Here is the story:

    In 2006 gnudb.org started hosting the cddb service to make sure that it would stay alive and free. Now 14 years later we have seen that Magix, the owner of freedb.org has decided to take the cddb service on freedb down (in 2020). As we stated in 2006 on gnudb.org "A new home for the freedb.org database to make sure it stays free.", we now have to stay to our promise and do our best to make sure it is available for all the music lovers.

    I an trying to figure out why back in February when I tried this it did not work because that is exactly what is working now. Hopefully I did not have a typo back then. Those Wagner Rings were a bear to rip without automatic titles.
