ReallyRareWares has risen from the dead!!
For those who may be interested in old codecs, etc, - basically anything to do with digital audio, but old and mostly deprecated(!), Roberto has revived RRW. You will find a news item at RareWares and a link at the top of the page. ;)

Wow, talking about a blast from the past. Nice.

Does this mean that Roberto will also start posting at HA again? One can hope...

As one of the early HA users, it would be nice to see him again on this place.  ;)

In the past I always checked Rarewares for updates about programs. Took me a long time for teaching myself not to do that anymore but maybe now it gets new updates :)

Blast from the past.

I wonder if we ever see things like GeoCities come back. Maybe I should set up a tripod page for shits and giggles...

That's awesome, thanks.  I love how they have CoolEdit 16-bit Windows?!?!!  :D

I really adored CoolEdit 96 and CoolEdit 2000 and used one of them right up into the Windows Vista years. 
The custom amplitude curves were my main declicking tool when viewing waveforms in spectral mode.

I like how the "about" page (http://www.rarewares.org/rrw/about.php) states the website looks good in any browser...

...any browser? I wonder...

In the attached pictures, you see RRW in Dillo for DOS and Arachne. Arachne was having serious trouble with one of the GIFs. The page doesn't look too bad in both of them (page is still usable) but maybe you wanna adjust it a little bit?

I didn't make a screenshot, but in links -g it looks like in Chrome and Firefox almost!

Well, I could have tested it on Mosaic. And HotJava. And BeOs NetPositive. And QNX Voyager. And Amaya.

I have all of these here. Because I'm a psycho. But honestly...  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sooooooo.... do you kids (really, I'm past 35 now!) have stuff to contribute to RRW? I'm eager to update it!

As I mentioned in the revival update. I'm looking to fill in the blanks with everything I missed these last 10 years. Versions of EAC, Foobar and LAME that have been released since then. That FhG MP3 surround thing. Whatever else you believe deserves being there!

Please keep the contributions coming!

So Roberto, now that we're talking about Pink Floyd anyway (let's see how far I can hijack this until a mod intervenes), did you see this exhibition yet?
http://pinkfloydexhibition.com/

I went to London last month and visited this. It was AWESOME. Best exhibition ever. A must-see for any Pink Floyd fan.

Maybe the exhibition will come to Brazil one day (do you still live there?)

Not sure if relevant enough, but I have a few versions of the winamp decoder for musepack/mpegplus, including versions from bushmann and klemm.

Also, I have at least version 37k of the Apollo player, including flac and vorbis plugins. (not sure if i might have any other version on backup CD's)

Apollo would be interesting indeed!

Not so sure about the Winamp plugins... wonder if anyone has any use for those
