just because a multi-step procedure WORKS, doesn't mean there should be a progam to automate it. i
used to rip everything then have to rename files and add tags, which sucked doing without a
program. then i found a program to write groups of tags and rename files automatically, which was
better. THEN i found a ripper that checked freedb for the tags, and renamed files and wrote tags
for me. which would you choose, extra work to prove you aren't lazy, or an easier automated
process that does the exact same thing in much less time?
