One might even say it resembles a sort of Wagon Train to the stars.

It doesn't surprise me that Mr. Scott is the leading choice so far. Who better for a bunch of Perl programmers than the guy who always seems to find a way to do the nearly impossible within nearly impossible deadlines?

    There was a ST: Next Gen episode where Scotty guest starred. My favorite exchange was when he berated Gordi for giving a precise estimate.
    <Paraphrase>Always pad your estimate, and make your Captain think you're a miracle worker!</paraphrase>.
      I loved that bit as well!

[marto]: and not long ago it wasn't feasible for anyone really to create a finger print of all known music to compare samples against...
[marto]: if you're living in the cloud, you're going to get rained on :P
[Veltro]: feasible in the sense of 'making money'?
[marto]: if your app just calls a remote or third party service to do the task, you app does not 'do the task', it's just a messenger
[marto]: in the sense that for various values of "a while ago" it would not have been possible (and arguable still isn't) to have a fingerprint of every piece of commercially released music to compare against.
[marto]: a co-worker refers to the late 1980s as "a while ago"
[Veltro]: Like I said before, I ment the solution as a whole
[Veltro]: People thought it was not possible.
[marto]: and until recently it wasn't and arguable (for some samples) probably isn't
[Veltro]: How did we get here? Oh yeah, advertisement. So let's get back there. What I ment to say is that I think it is possible to create an algorithm that filters out advertisement
