    2. But that's rude, Anon, even if true. He's just disappointed.

    3. You're right, I overreacted. I apologize. It tends to rustle my jimmies when people complain about another's hard work that they get for free. Unless if it's software... no-one should make bad software, free or not :)

      Next version next week (hopefully) or a bit later.

      >end_request: I/O error, dev sdh, sector 1144
      >md/raid:md0: Disk failure on sdh, disabling device.
      >md/raid:md0: Operation continuing on 16 devices.

      I sure hope third drive doesn't decide to die on me while the rebuild is running.
      And that's why you shouldn't procrastinate replacing disks even with raid6.

      rwx09 November, 2013 20:38

      The drive I thought I'd use as a replacement did not pass full surface check, so I had to order new ones.
      I'd have to rebuild to one drive, take it out, rebuild to a second one, take it out, compare their contents, as there are silent bus errors which could cause rebuild process to write erroneous data to the new drives, and think what to do next if there are mismatches anywhere other than in array headers.
      I'm considering skipping this release and waiting for Feb 2014, but havent decided yet. Will post update next weekend.

  13. Good. Since I'm just downloading from server to raid now (which will take a good few days...)
    I'll have a chance to start sorting through all the stuff I don't like which I've been meaning to do. huehuehue.

  14. There's a problem with one of the tta files. 弾奏結界 幻葬旋律曲 Necromanza (by dBu Music) skips on 無何有の郷 ~ Snowed Mountain. It skips around 0:09 seconds and starts playing again after about two seconds. This shouldn't be happening. Is it possible that this problem be fixed somehow? If that is ok.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Let me check my TTA and get back to you. I thought I found all the broken files already when I made fixes at least 6 updates ago.

      Delete
    2. No, my TTA's fine. I suggest redownloading.

      Delete
    3. To check try opening with another player or update your foobar plugin if you're playing it with foobar.

      Delete
    4. Well I am using foobar, and I did redownload the file but it still skips at 0:09. (Sorry for replying so late)

      Delete
    5. I also played it on Audacity and it still skipped

      Delete
    6. Don't have any problem either, try downloading it again from another torrent?

      Delete
    7. Have you guys tried re-downloading that particular album from that link? Maybe the current one you have isn't corrupt, but the one in the download link seems to definitely be corrupt. Maybe it got corrupt at some point while uploading in the past. I downloaded that same album about 5 times and the same thing happens over and over again. Both in Foobar and in Audacity. I have no problem with any other album, why just this one? If it turns out the problem is actually just me for some reason, then what other torrent is there where I can download this particular album?

      Delete
    8. Actually, never mind, I'm hoping it just my audio player. Cause I'm noticing some weird skips on some other songs as well. Why is this... My foobar is on it's latest version, maybe it's just foobar? Maybe it's just audacity? What audio player do you guys use?

      Delete
    9. Oddly enough, they're from dBu albums.

  19. Just dropping the link here in case. https://mega.co.nz/#F!wE4DlYIb!N61i3kBghKpUvOCoOU2GXg

    I have ripped my batch and there are albums not on the TMLC (or anywhere else seemingly), such as Xenoglossy, thj.quartet, Alice in the hole!, Ryuuha Mikaido (流派未階堂), and Symphonic Fantasm III.

    I'm getting more Alice in the hole! Touhou albums but not sure if they will arrive before February.

  24. I have 82 albums from C84 (26.5 GB) and 27 albums from C85 (8.5 GB). Some others I should add, but that's the bulk.
    Might not have time for it this week. Might decide to switch to yearly updates.

    1. >Might decide to switch to yearly updates.
      Please don't. Keep it at least ever 2 comikets.

      Delete
    2. Is that all of the stuff from C84 and C85 by any chance? If you do decide to switch to yearly updates, I'll take this opportunity to start sitting in /jp/ threads during each comiket and downloading everything myself since my lazy option (this torrent) will be out of the question.

      Delete
    3. Just take your time rwx, if you don't have the time, you simply don't have the time.

      Although, yearly seems a bit long; have you considered semi-annually instead? I was crushed when the last one didn't happen, but every six to eight months isn't that bad.

      Delete
    4. Oh no!, well at least it will be yearly.

    5. This is a sad news but I understand. Keep it coming when you have the time to do it, rwx. orz

  25. To those wanting new releases of TLMC. You know you could do some seeding in the meantime for the rest of us. There are plenty of leechers and not enough seeders. Besides, there is really no excuse for slow uplink speeds when you have managed to download it through whatever way you chose.

  26. Hi, i would like to know how i can split the albums.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Does anyone know how to tag one specific song without splitting the album? foobar2000 reads .cue files instead of one single album files, maybe that's why I cannot modify the tags but I'm not sure...
    Btw rwx thx for your wonderful work ^^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Edit the .cue file and reload it.

      Delete
  28. That was a fast answer, thx ! :p
    I clicked on utilities => edit cuesheet but I have this message http://puu.sh/7eZSr.jpg
    This is the cuesheet opened : http://puu.sh/7f010.jpg
    In fact, I'd like to add a "rating" tag like i did here for example : http://puu.sh/7f06K.jpg
    I managed doing it by writing APL link files based on the cuesheet http://puu.sh/7f0ie.jpg => http://puu.sh/7f0oR.jpg
    And once switched the cuesheet by the APL file in foobar's playlist I can tag them.
    But I'd like to do it directly because I'm too lazy xD

    (Tagging directly the cuesheet doesn't work neither reloading it)

    2. Only way it would work is if you rip it/split it, or use another player that would remember the ISO-9660/Red Book tagging correctly. And far as my brain goes, only one that would do that is iTunes.

      Personally I use iTunes to rip all my crap, and honestly, I think older version has minimode that is lot more tidier looking then Foobar. Well, imo, Foobar looks just ugly downright, and doesn't do all tagging I use. (I actually do use composer / comment / grouping / rating field)

      Delete
    3. This is because, natively speaking, Wave format/ISO-9660/Red Book was not designed to handle some of the tagging (ID3). Certainly, you can force some tagging on it, such as title, and depends on media player. Rating, artist, title, grouping, and album name tags fine on iTunes, but there are still many issues, such as no album art embedding. This is because for iTunes' case, the iTunes Media Data would remember this info for you, but it doesn't work perfectly, since ID3 can not be written on the file itself.

      So in that sense, it would be uselessness of the Foobar that's the issue.

      Delete
    4. Thx for the explanations ! I'll take a look at iTunes or keep doing APL files ^^

  29. when are you going to come back...

    ReplyDelete
  30. So let me get this straight. You're still going to release the next version over the next couple of days, but you're then thinking of slowing down releases dramatically? I'd be saddened, but fine with that as long as the version we're waiting on now doesn't get delayed for much longer.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm 70% certain next release will happen this month.

  33. Hey rwx, just wanna say thanks for all the selfless work you do organizing, collecting, and maintaining the TLMC. I was pretty worried when February came and went and there was no update; I had prepared myself for the worst before coming here and reading the comments, but after reading that you were still working on it, I was relieved. I really don't mind however long the wait is, and would be glad to have yearly updates.if it's easier on you. I've been following since v14, and the TLMC is about 95% of everything I listen to. It's an important part of my life (as I'm sure it is for many others). I don't know how much help you get from other people that send you albums and stuff, but major props to them as well for tracking down these gems (and knowing who to send them to).

    Hope this comment gives you some encouragement. Take your time, stay healthy, and thanks for giving us all innumerable hours of wonderful listening time.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just thought I'd post the correct way to listen to the TLMC.

    You're supposed to shuffle the songs only once, so you can go through 46,000 songs without hearing any repeats. And resume playing from the last index at the next session.

    If you leave the songs on random shuffle every time, on average you'll have to listen to about 400,000 songs before you'll have heard each song at least once. That's on average of 10 repeats for every song.

    Shuffling only once is the best way to minimize repeats. And by the time you finish the 46,000 songs, you'll have forgotten the first songs, so you can listen forever, and each song sounds completely new.

    1. You forget taste. Few love hardcore and piano arrange at the same time. So I recommend to pick circles fit your preferences. That would be a much smaller pool.

      Delete
    2. @Anonymous: Yeah but no one knows what the songs/circles sound like. Besides, they all sound about the same anyway.

      Delete
    3. ^

      There's no use trying to sort the songs into "much smaller pools" because no one knows what a song sounds like ahead of time. It's also too much work.

      Delete
    4. I dunno about anyone else, but I *love* hardcore and classic piano arranges. Jazz, death metal, post punk, pop, eurobeat, dance, house, folk rock, country, hip-hop, symphonic. If it's Touhou, I love it.

  40. It turns out I was wrong this time. Instead of cutting back on P████e & D█████s I picked up V██████e C█████e.

    No more deadlines, ready when I think there's enough new material. Instead of expecting and getting frustrated just add to RSS and forget about it until release.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well that's some major bullshit right there.
    Now I'm just flat out incapable of listening to things from the past handful of Comikets that have gone by since getting every album that was released after the initial first week or two is near enough impossible.
    I don't see what the problem is with releasing one last update now that everybody knows that the next ones are actually going to be coming out much more sparsely, but I'm sure nobody will mind that since they can just sit in threads on /jp/ downloading the albums themselves as they come out.
    I also don't know what you mean by "when I think there's enough new material". You yourself said that there's near 35GBs worth of albums.
    I'm not even mad that you're getting tired of updating this, because I would probably get sick of it too, but you could at least give us one last update now that we know that the updates have a chance of coming out much much slower than usual (which I'm sure everybody would be fine with providing they're told in advance).
    As for the inevitable ass kissing "wow man wtf he owes you nothing" replies, just shut the fuck up. I'm well aware of that.

    "P████e & D█████s I picked up V██████e C█████e." I don't know if it's just me but I can't read what this part of the sentence says.
