He refuse to use the magic pears (original challenge) and insisted on using this "cable" replete with gamebox.

from that link:
"And now let's gently touch ground: A 1m pair of Zero interconnects will set you back $14,900. I am sorry.

Here's the good news: A 2m pair of Zeros also costs $14,900. So does a 3m pair. The length required to go from my preamp to my amps costs a not-so-cool $17,000"


 :o  :o  :o

That would be hilarious if it wasn't so obscene !
Well, Jakob2 likes his choice, as it allowed an escape from a reality smackdown.

It's what a weasel needs as a variable to game a "cable" test, as you know.

So, you really believe in the magic of those "gameboxes" because no scientific or engineering assessment of the "box effect" is known to man. :)

Jakob, since you are obviously a friend of Fremer, why don't you obtain a clarification from him, and share it with us?

So blind as well as deaf trolling.

In that pic Fremer´s loudspeaker cable still isn´t shown, or is it?

Which is exactly what the Pear cable was. But your weasel hero got scared, so he was forced to move the goal post to his gamebox cables, knowing fully well that added variable box would be his weasel way out, as it adds a non-cable variable that would force testing etc on Randi...which is not Randis burden, especially with his $million on line.
What weasels your ilk are! <snip>

Let´s see what the state of your premises is:
1.) Fremer´s loudspeaker cables were equipped with "gameboxes" ...... blatantly wrong

Please define "gamebox".  I've read the thread and the linked articles and other sources, and for the life of my I can't tell what Fremer used or exactly what AJ is referring to.

2.) Fremer got scared and moved the goal post....... blatantly wrong, see the cited messages between Fremer and Randi

Jakob, since you are obviously a friend of Fremer, why don't you obtain a clarification from him, and share it with us?

3.) an implicit one; i.e. testing wouldn´t have been needed without "game boxes"......wrong, see the short explanation in my answer to Arnold B. Krueger.

Jakob, given all of the imprecise language and dissembling in that response, please clarify.

Here's my take. 

Conventional science clearly shows that there is no magic in speaker cables or interconnects, just LCR and small amounts of secondary parameters such as those related to dielectric loss and temperature coefficients of the vaious elements, none of which have any relevant reliably audilble  properties.  People like Fremer and you are just out there, misleading and dissembling as you will, trying to invent some credibility for the incredible.

Therefore, when given an opportunity such as Randii provided, its up to the magic cable advocates to provide convincing, reliable evidence.   Seeing none, there's no reason to believe that people like Fremer are either foolish, poorly-informed  placebophiles or stealth salesmen who live in and by means of the deep pockets of audio snake oil vendors. 

So Jakob, instead of all this haggling over he-said, they-said, nobody said, everybody-said, why not actually say something believable, relevant and meaningful?

Btw, my nick overthere is the same as it is in this forum "Jakob1863" .
I know what you are, Jakob2

Apparently he wasn´t referring to any "cable burn in test"
Wrong. He's challenging you to take the test so that he finally has data, since your fellow weasels wouldn't bite.
The reason being, is that you said prior a positive result was possible:

We assume you´ve send out the two randomly labeled cable sets and that you got after some time the response and after unblinding you realize that the listener´s anwer was correct. What are you doing next?
So, he saw a weasel who thought it was possible to get correct answers for "burned" cables. He then directly challenge that weasel to take the test and provide data.
Do you know what a weasel does in such a situation Jakob? Of course you do. ;)

i never claimed to hear a burn in effect in cables there was no test to weasel out.
Of course not. Weasel speak is to say claim "is possible". Then weasel out of any test.
As you know.

Looks like this, right?

(with a battery?). Not obvious to me that the "front plate" can be removed with those bolts (how about that volume knob?), and it is actually not obvious to me that there isn't some screw atop the jack outlet either.

No, a weasel will find any way out of a cable test, by introducing a magic gamebox into a "cable" test. Weasels will defend other weasels for doing so, as you know. Plus, as you could never grasp, the burden is not on non-weasels to test extraneous magic boxes for a Pear cable expensive cable test.  So a non-weasel would simply dismiss this cowardly weasel attempt to subvert a cable test, which of course, a weasel will then claim is the fault of the non-weasel. As you know.

So weasels will pretend not to see the link provided with the pic and where it came from. Shocking.

1.) Fremer´s loudspeaker cables were equipped with "gameboxes" ...... blatantly wrong
2.) Fremer got scared and moved the goal post....... blatantly wrong, see the cited messages between Fremer and Randi
3.) an implicit one; i.e. testing wouldn´t have been needed without "game boxes"......wrong, see the short explanation in my answer to Arnold B. Krueger.
Believer pecuniary interests and weaselness causes delusions, yes. True.

So when will you accept Jinjukus cable challenge to you and provide some data? How is weasel hearing?

...It'd be perfect if it could recognize automatically, for example - import .csv > search for "Thriller" by "Michael Jackson" > found! > import tags of "Thriller" by "Michael Jackson" > search for "Beat It" by "Michael Jackson" > not found! > don't import tags of "Beat It" by "Michael Jackson" > repeat until filling all library.
I am afraid, you can not find such program.
...How do you mean about the line breaks and all of that? What's the purpose of that, and how do I do it?
Some tags, like COMMENT, usually can store line breaks, too. In tags' backup one line stores the data of one file. So, instead of saving %comment%, you must to save $replace(%comment%,$char(9),<TAB>,$char(13)$char(10),<CRLF>), or something similar. After restoring, you can replace them back, with a replace action. More detailed help you can find on Mp3tag's support page.

...Files for overwriting must be exactly in that order (and quantity), as records in your backup file. (Mp3tag can not identify your files.)...
But after, you can use Mp3tag's filter function to check, was the restoring process correct or not: filter items, where (for example) filename will not equal to "%track%. %title%".

OK, so foo_upnp is definitely responsible for the issue. When I turn off Norton Security Suite, the problem persists, but when I uninstall foo_upnp, the problem goes away completely. Unfortunately I use the upnp service quite often, and I would love to be able to continue doing so. Any ideas what the root issue may be?

A quick Google search gave me this, which looks like a similar issue, albeit with Linux running Wine.

If you are free to use title format functions just use $num(%always_counter%,2)
Sometimes you never think about the obvious :)

Thank you.
