Thanks very much for the technical advice Huffjuff!

I tried two different programs from that list on my Windows computer in my initial round of DRM-removal attempts. One was very spotty and worked by playing the file in real-time. This would mean over 50 hours of my computer sitting there formatting. And even then it led to file-size bloat.

The other worked by burning the audio file to a what-do-you-call-it, a sort of imaginary digital CD drive.  iTunes doesn't allow you to burn .aa files to CD however, so that one wasn't working for me either.

If I get more audible audiobooks in future I may try again, but I finished downloading Way of Kings yesterday (through a certain peer-sharing program) and it's working fine for me now.  Smile

Mmmm, breaching drms is a bit sketchy copyright wise. (As sketchy as torrent downloads, really. Razz) That said, the whole system of drm protection doesn't really fit in with the concept of copyright all that well in general either. The whole point is that some of your rights are exhausted in a copyrighted product when you sell it. And the buyer for instance has the right to copy the work for personal use and  sell it on and so on.

Honestly, the whole concept of drms has little to do with copyright and securing artists rights at all. Rather with a system of making an industry devoted to making money on said art, mostly not for the artist.

Haha you guys *blushing*
I think if any of you want some help, I just might happen to know a little to much about computers and programs.
Send me a PM, or contact me in any other ways possible for you!

It just hasn't happened yet. The forum automatically splits threads when they hit ~1100 posts, but it goes back and breaks them off at the 990 post mark. Then I go in (if I'm paying close enough attention) and add or edit the number to the title.

I suppose Eldo hasn't had a chance to add 9 3/4 to the Harry Potter thread yet.

Um... I probably shouldn't say this, but if you can't see the 9 3/4 thread then you're probably a muggle...

Yeah, the forum leaves the thread title the same.  It took me a little bit to realize what was going on when we first started to get threads long enough that they were splitting.  I actually thought you were doing it at first since you were the only other active mod at the time. Laughing But I sometimes don't notice when a thread gets split and have to go back and update all the numbers long after the fact.

Yup, that's pretty much what someone in Slytherin would say. Razz
