UberFLAC v0.89 - tools to help with ÜberStandard 3.0/FLAC rips

These rather hackish tools help with ÜberStandard 3.0/FLAC rips.

FLACScript enforces and checks MD5 sums for FLAC rips, and does
it better than oggscript. It also generates standard-compliant
MD5 checksum files now, that anything else like md5sum or hksfv
can check too.

UberTrans allows you to safely transcode FLAC rips to the other
UberStandard formats. Yes, it only works on FLAC. Deal with it,
that'll never change.

Instructions for installation:

I apologise for the following rather unformatted drivel. I haven't
had time, but the instructions are all here. I hope.

1. Install ActiveState ActivePerl: ( here:
- later versions should work OK, check the website
for details, you do _not_ need to enter anything or register, use the latest Windows MSI build)

2. Create a new directory C:uber

3. Unpack this archive to the C:uber directory, so you have directories: C:uberutils
C:uberripFLAC C:ubertransFLAC and C:ubertransAPS (and several others under
trans, one for each format).

You need to put C:uberutils in your $PATH, do it like this:
(instructions are for Windows XP, other versions may vary)

a) Press WinKey+Pause/Break to bring up System Properties (alternatively, right-click My Computer and select Properties)
b) Switch to Advanced tab
c) Press Environment Variables button near the bottom of the dialog
d) In the bottom half of this Environment Variables dialog is a system variables list. You'll see Path in there. Edit it; DO NOT overwrite everything in it. Your system needs that stuff, so be careful here and do exactly what I say: Press
Home (go to the beginning), type "C:uberutils;" without the quotes EXACTLY,
including that semicolon at the end (don't insert any spaces or anything!), and
press Return. Your Path should look SOMETHING like this:
It may be longer or different, but it gives you an idea what to expect.
e) Press OK in this dialog and OK again in the previous dialog to commit the changes.
f) Reboot for the new changes to take effect.

WinKey+R (Run), type cmd, press return (to open a command prompt)
for when you come back:
should give a nice version message.

to rip in FLAC:
set up to uberstandard with following tweaks.
I recommend you don't open external compressor windows. Don't close EAC until you see
there's NO compression tasks remaining (in the statusbar at the bottom), whatever you
do... other than that, it's less trouble. You may also want to change ripping and encoding
priority to Idle (it's a shame it doesn't support changing encoding priority to Idle but
keeping ripping priority Normal, really).

Essay about History of Child Labor Practices in the United States

- One could not begin to speak of the unspeakable regarding the notion of child labor, not only in the US, but the ugly truth about the practice through out the world, with out making reference to the practice of "employing" children in a historical perspective, i. e., since children have been around. The truth is it - the practice - of putting children to work has always been with us as a species, and most likely will be part of our human story for as long as we exist. However, here in the United States we would like to believe that as a "modern"nation, we can agree as a civilized society, that children have a place as not only gentle creatures of our very fabric, but ultimately also serve as...   [tags: Child Labor]

Realm of Labor Essay

The Role of Labor in American History Essay

- This brief history of more than 100 years of the modern trade union movement in the United States can only touch the high spots of activity and identify the principal trends of a "century of achievement." In such a condensation of history, episodes of importance and of great human drama must necessarily be discussed far too briefly, or in some cases relegated to a mere mention. What is clearly evident, however, is that the working people of America have had to unite in struggle to achieve the gains that they have accumulated during this century....   [tags: Labor Historical US Essays Workers]

Construction of save filenames: FLAC rips are always in the Long format, and will be
until LM-3.
this is why C:uberripFLAC is close to the root.

Use naming scheme: "%A - %C%A - %C - %N - %T" and various artist naming scheme "%C%C -
%N - %A - %T" (both without quotes). do _not_ mess with that.
filename problems can be minimised by simply not making the album name gratuitously long.

go to directory tab, and use this directory every time without asking: C:uberripFLAC
compression options, external compression. This is the meat of it:

Parameter Passing Scheme: User Defined Encoder
Use file extension: .flac

Program, including path, used for compression: C:uberutilsflac.exe
Additional command line options : --best %s -T uberstandard=FLAC -T comment="uberstandard flac" -T description="uberstandard flac" -T title="%t" -T artist="%a" -T date="%Y" -T
genre="%m" -T album="%g" -T tracknumber="%n"
Bit rate: 320kbit/s (as with other uber profiles, doesn't matter, cosmetic only, and well
below normal flac bitrates)
High quality (again, cosmetic only)
Delete WAV after compression: YES
Use CRC check: NO
Add ID3 Tag: NO
