deathcubek: it sounds like you mostly got the testing thing ironed out, but just in case, there's a forum thread that covers a few different testing processes: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7718

Is LameXP the only audio encoder that can convert opus files?

I converted something to Opus yesterday with LameXP but TEncoder and TAudioConverter will also do the trick.

This program is critically important when you have a mass of vaguely connected topics. Seeing them all grouped nicely into a structure does a very useful magic trick, simplifying and clarifying how you think about almost any topic.
