Here is the proposed new CRC calculation, which should still allow the fast parallel calculation:Or I could switch to CRC32 which would deal with NULL samples better and a) encourage the use of the offset finding crc, b) field 1001 questions why track 1 and n do not match the CRC32 calculation.
AR does not provide any indication of the source of submissions. Should it? Ultimately that is a question only the maintainers of AR will answer, so my speculation is really quite irrelevant. But if it did..On 2006 June 28 at 14:47:19 this album was submitted from IP 213.49.53.xxx from an Optiarc drive with offset -7.All I have to do is lookup that class C IP block for a general geolocation (city level) and look at the drive type, and I know immediately if it was me or a friend or a complete stranger in Botswana. See 2 entries with all different field values, and you would know immediately that this is no coincidence.
Not sure why it is too important to have IP address of submission, surely you know if you have ripped and submitted?
