From the humor section on an audio board I browse, “Hearing the difference now isn’t the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is 'lossy'. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA - it's about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity.”

That's a good one. I wonder how many people read that and wonder how to keep their stored digital music from decaying. :)
