lossyFLAC Site Up
Over the years I've learned a lot from reading these forums, but I've never posted because you guys are, for the most part, way over my head.

Still FLAC is my format of choice, and I wanted to 'give back' or whatever, so I made this for my fellow FLAC fanatics. It's a joke. Don't get your feathers in a ruffle. Just a joke. Just a joke.

Hope you like it.

http://lossyflac.curtisdraws.com

(If you have a FLAC fanatic friend, and you want to really p*ss them off / freak them out, then send them to that URL. Too bad it's not a more convincing URL, but I don't think I want to buy server space just for a joke.)

It's not 'broken' but it does create a pop-up so you've probably got pop-up blocking turned on. I'm using Firefox 1.5 on Windows XP SP2, so our setups are similar.

It's not actually worth it, so don't bother. It's just s little window that comes up with a progress bar that says to 'Please Wait while HZ Player converts your music files to lossyFLAC' which ought to scare at least four people. At least enough to shut the window quickly.

Too much!

Thanks!

Wow, that is some seriously funny stuff.  Just looking at all the slick graphical things makes it look semi-legit.  Then the fun starts when reading.  Very good...

I thought it to be one of funiest parts, like a typical malicious site wanting to trick you into something you didn't ask for.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.

It seems to me that the download link is quite broken, however I managed to get it.
I uploaded it there:

It worked for me.  Win2K SP4, DLL in same folder as EXE.

I don't have the file with me, but it produced a flac around half the size of FLAC.EXE.

I must say, no offence Gabriel, but I think I prefer my music with all the toppings intact.  I hope I'm not breaking TOS8 here.
