[ale] OT CD ripping and CDDB/FreeDB

FreeDB is essentially an open source
CDDB/Gracenote/whatever-they-call-it-now. If your CD is not in the
database, add it. All of the CDs that are in the database have been
added by users. If no one else has bought your CD and added to the
database, how would you be able to retrieve the information?
Contribute so that others don't have the same problem.

If the CD is mislabeled, re-add it. http://www.freedb.org/en/faq.3.html#23

"All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts
pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it
is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become
drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted."
