Sniffle. Every time I have a reasonable number of albums encoded with
Ogg Vorbis, you release something new and better. Sure, I don't *have* a
really good stereo, so I can't really hear the difference, but I feel
this urge to re-encode everything again, just because I'm not getting
the quality per bit of information that I *could* get.
