Hi guys, since I have no idea where else to post this -- well, here goes.

On a non-Windows machine (or if Windows, use Firefox with NoScript etc) try downloading the oggenc binaries listed in the Oggenc section. The redirect to dancer will shuttle you over to a sweepstakes/virus/spam site which Firefox and Chromium will block automatically.

If anybody knows the admins of rarewares.org please pass along this info. In the meantime I'll just content myself with mp3 for my Sansa instead sad.gif

We are in the process of eliminating this problem and it should be completed within the next couple of days. I'll post here when it's resolved.

Thanks for the 'heads up'. wink.gif
